New Blogs from me! (Dawn Smith)

   Recently at the Foster Event we were informed how Pughearts is growing in leaps and bounds! That's a good thing! but in that growth there was more and more duties! So some of those were delegated out and I am now on the Blog page! I will be posting about Pughearts events and activities, life as a foster mom,  and anything else that pops into my head that I think you may be interested in. I don't have my own log in yet so my posts will be under Emily's name until I get one.

We have a very special event planned for Saturday 12/14/13.  Paint for the Pugs will be a PERSON ONLY event where you will be guided through creating an acrylic painting of your own pug (or one of ours if you prefer).    Just in time for that special Christmas gift!

This event will run from 6pm to 8pm at the Club House (located at 2900 Manvel Road Pearland, TX).  There will be a $50 charge to participate (paid in advance), which will cover all your supplies and instruction.  Payments can be paid in cash or check at any upcoming events or via paypal at, and indicate Paint for the Pugs in comments.

The amazing and beyond talented Karen Rudat will be creating a stencil/transfer from a photo of your very own pug (she recommends face shots for best results).  You will need to email her your photo or you can post it here in this thread by no later than 12/7/2013.  At the event on 12/14 you will be able to transfer the drawing based upon your photo to a gallery-wrapped canvas, and then go on to paint your own pug masterpiece!!!!

This is the first time we have ever done an event like this and spaces are limited, so sign up now!
