Welcome! How did you learn about us, and what prompted you to join (i.e. to attend monthly events, meet new people and to socialize your Pug; to receive Pug-related information on health care, training etc.)?

Heard about the meet up at Brookdale Dog Park in Montclair, NJ,. Because I work full time I am always looking for things to do with my Pug, and to meet new people who are also in a committed relationship with their pugs. Riley loves playing with other dogs. My co-workers who are not animal people just don't get it. They don't understand that I don't want to go out for a drink with the girls instead of going home to my companion. My days off are usually hiking with Riley or taking him to the park.

Please tell us a little bit about your pug(s);name, age...when your eyes met theirs, was it "Puppy Love" at first sight?!?

Riley is 2 1/2 years old and he is MY first dog. I always had dogs growing up but they were the family dogs and my parents took care of them. My daughter and her husband had a pug and when they divorced he took the pug with him. Didn't realize how attached i had gotten and was devastated when he left. Took me six weeks to search out my own pug. He is my third child. I love him to death. His name stems from the old TV show "The Life of Riley" Probably dating myself but he does have the life. No doubt he is a little spoiled.


My name is JoAnn Chambers and I live in Fair Lawn, NJ. I am a Registered Nurse currently working full time and always looking for things to do with Riley. Attended Camp Canine Getaway in Lake George this year. What a great time!

What Jo Ann C. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love the idea of being able to get together with other people who love being with their pets. I work all week so when I have off I like to be able to spend time with mine and love the idea of being able to bring him with me when I go out
