All About #PugsTakeBoston

A group of pugs hang out in Boston Commons.

We spent an epic four days in the city on a hill, aka the hub, aka the cradle of liberty, aka Beantown, aka America’s walking city for #PugsTakeBoston, a meet up for pug lovers, pugs, and their hoomans.

Our long weekend was jam packed with pug dinners, drinks, a Freedom Trail tour, a Cinco de Puggo party and raffle at the Kimpton Onyx, a boat tour on Boston Harbor, and a meet up in Boston Commons.

A bunch of pugs sniff each others butts in a park.While the pugs love to have a good time, the #PugsTakeOver events are not solely for fun. We also raise money for pug rescue, with 100% of raffle proceeds going to non-profit rescue organizations.

Here’s a little pugstory: the #pugtakeovers events started in 2015 when a group of pug friends decided to get together in Boston to hang out, party, and spread the word about pug rescue. Since then, events have been held in New York City, Chicago, and Washington D.C.

We are one of the organizers, along with our pals Hamilton, Violet, Otis, Finn, Milo, Timmy, and Rufus. This year, our friend Chubbs TE started to run events on the West Coast, with the inaugural #PugsTakeVegas. It’s safe to say that pugs are slowly taking over the world, one city at a time.

It pays to have fun and do good. All of the puggies used their karma points to ask for extra snackies. Their Boston takeover was a success, and they were even featured in the local paper. Well deserved!
