What is #PugsTake…?
A few years ago, a group of us pugs who originally met at #PugChat on
Twitter got together in New York City. All the pugs had so much fun
that we started planning #BostonPugParty in October 2015. We planned a
meet-and-greet in Boston Common and a hotel rooftop party so we could
mingle with some of the local New England pugs. We put out the word on

small group to many dozens of pugs, we have kept to our original
goals: bring pug friends together, see some cool places, and raise
money for pug rescue. Us pugs organize these events for fun in our
free time and are not getting paid for our efforts. So please be
patient with us as we do our best to plan a great weekend!
