This weekend was the Canine Fun Days at the Cleveland (Ohio) Metroparks polo fields, sponsored by Greyhound Rescue. I headed up the Ohio Pug Rescue booth on Saturday. Here are a few of the pugs who worked the crowd. My Loocie was one of the youngters and she is almost 8.
Milo taking a breather ~ he's 11.
Blind, deaf and 14, Herman was adopted by OPR member Jodi when he was 11. What a sweet boy!
This lady was intent on winning the costume contest.
By the end of the day, the pugs and their humans were worn out, but we made some money for rescue and hope that someone will adopt a pug because of our efforts.
Back to rug week at Sauder Village . . .
One of the special exhibits was The Presidents. In less than a year's time, Linda Pietz researched and designed a rug for each of our Presidents and her sister Nola Heidbreder hooked them. That's 44 rugs, each 16" x 20". Click here for a USA Today video with Linda and Nola.
One of Nola's favorites.
There were also knitted versions of all the Presidents. If I remember correctly, knitters in Linda's knitting guild in California each adopted a President and gave them a life of their own.
I have SO MANY rugs to share. I just love this one!
This is Janice Lee's rug Ghost Rider. Read all about it here.
Last call for Annie to email me to claim her "WOOL ADDICT" necklace.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
