Can you please advise me how to get this on my Facebook Events page and how to post it on my news feed. I am having difficulty with that. I only could find option to notify one friend at a time. I would like to notify all friends but dont know how to do that Thanks see u all at Pugzextravaganza!

    • Dwight S.

      Yes Thanks Dan I figured it out last night and posted it on my feed. How many are expected to show up Saturday Pugs and People?

      1 · April 29, 2013

    • Dan C.

      No way to say for sure, but 300 to 400 pugs and 500 people isn't out of the question. It's the biggest event of the year !!!

    The waiver is on the rescue's website, www.pugbutts.com

    I have to attend a graduation in Berkely

    April 23, 2013

  • Diane C.

    NOTE: You must be able to show proof of current vaccinations for all dogs attending this event. This is a new requirement from the county fairgrounds. We have a waiver form on our website that you can print, fill out and bring to the event to save time. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we have no control over this. I don't think that just having a dog tag is good enough anymore, since they are permanent and don't expire, even if the vaccinations are out of date. Bring proof or the waiver.

    Please go to the Pug Rescue of San Diego County website, http://www.pugbutts.com to download the form. It will save time at the event.

    April 23, 2013

    • Dan C.

      It's my understanding if you don't have proof of the rabies vacine with you, you can fill out the waiver form so that you are liable for your dog in the event he/she bites another dog or human.

      April 23, 2013

    • Diane C.

      Yes, that is why we have the form on the website, so you can fill it out before you come, to save time at the entrance.

    I just adopted a Bugg recently (pug/boston terrier)

    I hope it's ok if I bring him.

    I also have a boston terrier that I hope is OK to bring.

    • Alison Jerry Ringo Fred & P.

      Hi Adam! I think and hope it will be OK if you bring your pals to this event but to be on the safe side, please check with the host of the party (Pug Rescue of San Diego County). They can be reached at www.pugbutts.com. As far as all other meetups go that are hosted by San Diego Pug Club, your best friends are more than welcome! Congratulations on your happy family!

    It rained the last time I was in San Diego, so I couldn't do much wIth my girls. What is a good park or activity I can do with my girls?

    February 27, 2013

    • Dan C.

      I'd recommend Fiesta Island dog park or Coronado dog beach.

      2 · February 27, 2013

    • Alison Jerry Ringo Fred & P.

      Oh no, Julie! I can't believe you drove all the way down there and it rained! As far as dog parks in San Diego go, my two favorites are Nate's Point at Balboa Park and Coronado Dog Beach. I haven't been to Fiesta Island yet. You'd probably like Nate's Point best because it is fully fenced. Besides that, Balboa Park is absolutely beautiful. Love to the girls!
