Novato Advance
"Whole lotta snortin' going on"

They're here. And they seem to be multiplying. Just check-out Amphitheater Park in Hamilton the third Sunday of the month. Pugs everywhere.

The idea was the brainchild of Novato pug owners Jett, owner of Yogi, and Linda, who owns Reed. The two women had witnessed the popularity of Pug Sunday events in San Francisco and wanted to bring the K-9 concept to Novato.

Jett and Linda contacted a few pug owners via e-mail and the event took on a life of its own. Rain fell the first Pug Sunday, April 18, but the pugs and owners didn't seem to mind. The second event drew even more pugs as owners and dogs basked in the sun at Amphitheater Park.

Pug owner, Carole Aubrey says she fell in love with pugs after seeing the movie "Milo and Otis." Perhaps she felt her Labrador needed a companion.

I said,"I have to get a pug someday. I went to buy one and came home with two," she said.

Jett says that anyone owning a pug is invited to Novato's Pug Sunday.

"It is an opportunity for the community to get together, get to know one another as neighbors and enjoy their special little dog breed," she said. "Pugs play well together. They're a gentle funny breed that brings smiles to all."

Owners say the breed is very agreeable, even with other pets. Take the Aubrey household, for example. The hierarchy of sleeping arrangements hasn't seemed to phase her two pugs. Rather than sleeping in the master bedroom, the pugs sleep in another room.

"Because the Lab sleeps on our bed. I mean, how many dogs can you have on your bed?" Aubrey said. "My husband does put limits on things."
