On the first Sunday of every month, you can usually find over 50 pugs and their humans at San Francisco's Alta Vista Park. A great opportunity for dogs AND their owners to meet new friends and socialize, these events have become increasingly popular over the years.

Pug owners are a breed of their own. Who else could love these not-so-cute-which-is-why-they-are-so ridiculously-cute dogs? We're not sure who started Pug Sundays, but we're sure glad they did! The events attract a lot of people in the San Francisco area and are just a lot of fun. If you don't have a pug - no worries! Any dog is welcome so long as they are pug-friendly. Be warned though, your pup will be very outnumbered. If you're a dog lover, but aren't ready for the commitment - come out and enjoy the beautiful park! Pugs and their owners are very friendly - you'll be fully immersed in all of the snorting, sniffing and smiling going on.

If you live in San Francisco but aren't available on the first Sunday of the month - make sure to check out Pugslife for more information on pug groups and meetups in the Bay Area.
