Southern Fried Pugs Take Manhattan!: Our day to shine

Saturday was our day in the spotlight, our long awaited 1000 Pugs! photo shoot. It was in Red Bank, New Jersey, about 45 minutes from our hotel.

The day was beautiful! The sun was shining, the breeze was cooling and we were darling.

Panoramic shot from mom's new iPhone. 
Our shoots went great! Miss Amanda was so nice and so generous with the treats. She was very gracious and let mom take pictures of her taking pictures.

We quickly learned that her arrival meant treats so every time she came back around, we totally begged for more treats.
Yup, that's Petunia all up in her face. Tallulah isn't far behind.
You can see we weren't alone in that!
Scarlet and her mom drove all the way in just to meet up with us and some other pugs. Isn't that awesome? 
Scarlet is a sweet pie!

Not long after our shoot, Wilma, Brigitte and Sluggo arrived! 
It's Wilma! She is even more adorable in person! We had a hard time believing she is a founding member of the Bad Girls Club.. 

 And here's Brigitte! Check out those ears. So unbearably cute! 

This is the best we got of Sluggo at that point. He's in the middle. 

We got to meet Puglet! He one chill pug. Except when skateboarders or bicycles came around. But other than that, he was so relaxed at all the attention!

We, on the other hand, did go a little poodle on each other, again. Mom decided to take us for a walk around the park to tire us out. We went all the way to the water front. 

When we got back, there were even more people and pugs around. 
This is Marshmallow. Is he not adorable? Just look at that face. 

Here's Puglet again. He is so used to the camera.

See, we weren't the only ones who learned that Miss Amanda equals treats. That's Wilma getting some yummies. 

Pugs and their people. It was an awesome day!

Next post, dinner!

    PS - mama said to tell you she is jealous ... she couldn't get pictures of Amanda taking pictures of us because we kept looking at mama so Miss Amanda had to ask mama not to take pictures!
