We’re Off to See the Wizard

I make no secret that my favorite movie of all time is The Wizard of Oz. What’s not to love, a scary witch, flying monkeys, and all those Munchkins. It’s almost a perfect movie. The only improvement? If a pug had been cast as Toto and not a Cairn terrier. (Don’t get me wrong, the dog that landed the role did a hell of a job.) Since that can never be, the above photo almost makes up for it.

Snapped on May 7th at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the photo shows two participants for Pug Rescue of San Diego County’s 20th Pug Party. This year’s theme was “The Emerald City: There’s No Place Like Home.” Very fitting, since the festival’s proceeds go to finding new homes for rescue pugs.

    I’d like to see Pablo as the Cowardly Lion.
