Pugs! In costumes!

Ming Mei just can't kick the habit. (Arf! We know, no treat for us.)

The Albany-Capital District Pug Lovers Meetup Group had its annual Pug Ball this past weekend in Colonie. And pugs of all sorts -- young, old, skinny, round, easy going, excitable -- were decked out to look their best. After a few minutes there, it was pretty clear: pug people have more fun than the rest of us.

Many pictures after the jump. Be sure you're braced for extreme cuteness.

Every time I check this blog I see something either very interesting or something that makes me go "PFFFF!!" and giggle! This pug segment is definitely one of those. I really don't think pugs are ugly! Maybe they could make LOLpugs? " I CAN HAS A COSTUME!?!"

I went to this a couple years ago with my pug. And it's true, the only way the event could get any cuter is if it took place in a giant flower basket surrounded by rainbows, babies and dancing teddy bears.

I have to say, I'm always disturbed when I see dogs dressed up. Clothes are for people, not animals. It's not cute, just creepy.

Pugly.

I vote for creepy

oh these fotos are so cute
