It was pure pug pandemonium at the Del Mar Fairgrounds this past Saturday, May 7. That’s where the Pug Rescue of San Diego County hosted its 20th annual Del Mar Pug Party, which is the West Coast’s largest gathering of these Chinese lap dogs.

In celebration of the group’s 20 year history of finding homes for rescued pugs, this year’s theme was “The Emerald City — There’s No Place Like Home.” Plenty of pugs and their people donned Wizard of Oz themed costumes, some of which you can see in this video, along with some other event highlights.
