Club Spotlight: Pug Dog Club of Greater New York

 

The Pug Dog Club of Greater New York's annual Alice Austen Pug Fun-Fundraiser Day was held Sunday, June 9 at the Alice Austen House Museum on Staten Island, New York.

The Day, celebrating all things Pug, has been held for over 30 years and commemorates Alice Austen and her pug, Punch.

Pugs and their adoring owners took part in activities like an AKC Canine Good Citizen test (open to all Toy breeds), hands-on obedience demos, a Pug fun match, a costume contest with ribbons and prizes, a raffle and the club's famous BBQ lunch.

Read more about the day in the Staten Island Advance. See photos from the event in the photo gallery.

What a great, family-friendly way to celebrate a wonderful breed! Check out the Pug Dog Club of Greater New York for their other events.
