It’s all about the pug, and this pugnaciously precious pup will be celebrated at Pug Rescue of San Diego’s annual pug pawty. More than 500 pugs and their two-legged companions are expected to participate in the canine confab.
This year’s theme is “Vegas Pugs,” so expect to see creative costumes - showgirls, Sinatra, maybe Elvis? Pug-tastic events include a costume contest, wet T-shirt contest (dogs only, please), a cupcake chomp (with dog-friendly ingredients) and a pug boutique.
Got a pug with issues? There will be an “ask the vet” booth. Proceeds benefit Pug Rescue’s effort.
When: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
Where: Del Mar Fairgrounds, 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd., Del Mar.
Cost: $10 adults; $5 children 10 and under; $5 pug entry fee.
