Fun at the Health Fair!

Every year Idaho State University holds a health fair

Our training director has a table there.
 Mom & I went to help let people know about 
the benefits of having a well trained dog

There were a lot of people there!
This was our second year helping 
and I was much more relaxed than last year

In fact I really enjoyed all the attention, 
everybody wants to meet the pug!
If there was a lull in the crowd I would start softly barking
"Hey peeps! Come meet me!"

I showed off my puzzle skills and some of my tricks

This is my friend Oliver 

These children enjoyed meeting him

Eleven different dogs came throughout the day
This is my friend Rez

Now for the big question

Some of you did recognize this TV celebrity.

For the rest of you 
here are a few more clues

If you watch American Ninja Warrior
you may recognize 

Lance Pekus

Also known as the Cowboy Ninja

Lance is from Salmon, Idaho 
and will soon be competing on his eighth season of 
American Ninja Warrior

It was really fun to meet him
(don't worry Arty, he doesn't hold a candle to you!)

We are the PugRanch Kids

  12. We love American Ninja Warrior when ever we remember to watch it. Those people are AMAZING! I'm so glad that you had fun at the health fair and I know everyone enjoyed meeting you. ** I think of y'all every day because my granddaughter LOVES Puppy Dog Pals. Have you ever watched it? It is two adorable Pugs named Bingo & Roly. I'm pretty sure that I've seen every episode and we have the characters.

  13. You are one lucky dog to have someone like that hold you!

  14. Whew....I was a little worried...just a little ;-)

  15. Hmm, we only watch Netflix. Were there any doggie hunks there? ~Lucy

    Ignore her. was there any good foodies there? ~Xena

    You look so happy to be there, especially in the picture where you are smiling and maybe giving soft woofs to come and see the pug. Great job, Mabel! the Mom
