Day 65: March in the Pugs

Today my husband Nich and I ran our Fanfare and Foofaraw ceramic table at the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue "March in the Pugs" spring fundraiser, selling "Pug mugs" and bowls. We sold out of nearly everything, so we had a pretty good day. (We treated ourselves to a bottle of raspberry wine as a reward. After this blog post, I intend to polish it off.)

You would not think I'd be so tired from just sitting at a table and watching pugs flip out all day, but I am EXHAUSTED!
The pugs at the Pug Celebrity Kissing Booth, waiting to pucker up.
This is Romeo, one of the most genteel old gentleman pugs I've ever seen in my life. I was totally in love with his wrinkly salt and pepper face:D
At the end of the day, the pugs shared our sentiment - everyone was POOPED. (No pun intended).

So this is the top secret design I created for this year's KPR shirt. The screenprinter did an amazing job converting the original to vector art (and made my artwork look so much cleaner and more professional than my original!) I am really proud that people are walking around with my mohawk pug on their shirt:D

If any one is interested in a t-shirt (they come on white shirts, as well as grey long sleeved sweatshirts), let me know, and I'll give you the KPR contact info. All the proceeds go directly to the dogs, so if you love animals AND have always wanted some of my art, this is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY! DO NOT PASS IT UP! 

It's a good cause, so I hope you buy a shirt and save a pug. I'll be flattered, and a sick or needy pug will get the love and care they so desperately need. Check out the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue website for more info on these awesome people:)
