Bowling for Pugs….and other dogs too.

On Saturday, the Boston Terrier and Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba had their second annual St. Paddy’s Bingo Bowl fundraiser. The poster promised fun for the whole family, prizes and a “social lunch” too.

Of course I was very excited about the whole thing. I’d never been bowling before but I hear it’s pretty easy. For you non-Winnipeggers, a “social” is a fund-raising party that always has a buffet later in the night, usually consisting of bread, cubed cheese, pickles and a variety of cold cuts. Although almost unheard of  outside of Manitoba, they are hugely popular here as a fun fundraiser for charity events as well as weddings.

For days I dreamt about kielbasa and cubed cheese and rye bread – oh my! For the good of my fellow Pugs (and other dogs too) I was prepared to do my part and eat all the social food I could muster. Can’t you just smell the kielbasa?

Imagine my dismay on Saturday when I was informed that I had not been invited! What? Really? I thought this was supposed to be fun for the whole family.

Well, I guess the humans had a good time and they assured me they spent lots of money on prize tickets. Meanwhile, I stayed home and babysat my new foster sister – more on her later. Do you think somebody could have thought to bring me home a couple cold cuts? Geez, some days it’s like I do all the work around here.

Oh, and then I find out that Mikey was there all night! He gets to go to everything! Last year, the rescue held a social to raise money to buy him a wheelchair and the restaurant owner let him hang out for the whole thing.

I love ya bud, but I’m still totally jealous you got to hang out and eat the kulbasa while I was on babysitting duties.

As a consolation, the humans did win a couple door prizes that are all for me.

Here's to smelling good while I munch on cookies!



About Sabrina's Pug Tails

My name is Sabrina. I am a three year old fawn pug who lives with my three humans and my brother-cat Shinobi. I came to live with my family in February of 2010. I don’t remember much about my life before that. I know that I didn’t have a nice warm bed to sleep in or soft couches to lay on. I was rescued from my previous life by the Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba along with my brother, sister and mom. My human mum tells me that some dogs work at being smart and some work at being cute, and I am very, very cute. I think there may be some kind of insult here………
