Puglandia: May 22nd, 2011

Is Portland the place where young pugs come to retire and leave the world of working dogs behind?  Do Portland pugs tell other out-of-town pugs how great the City is?  Is "putting a pug on it" a sure-fire way to become an artist in Portland?  Come explore the answers to these and other pug-related questions at "Puglandia," the 11th Annual Oregon Humane Society Pug Crawl, happening Sunday May 22nd on the streets outside MacTarnhan's Taproom in Northwest Portland.  Named in honor of the ground-breaking television show "Portlandia",  Puglandia is expected to be the largest gathering of pugs on the West Coast, attracting an estimated 500 four-legged friends and more than 1,000 people.  The highlight of the day is the Parade of Pugs, where, if past tradition holds, almost 100 costumed pugs will walk the runway and compete for the title of King or Queen of Puglandia.  The Grand Marshall of this year's parade is my friend Anita Kissee, who is a news reporter for KATU2.   Kissee's pug, Sigmund, is a past Pug Crawl winner!   Other celebrity pugs should also be on hand and here is a super cute picture of two Pug's in the parade last year!
