Pugs Not Thugs! Anti-Bullying Pug Party

Kingston, Ontario. Kingston Pug Parties will be hosting a special Pugs Not Thugs! anti-bullying Pug Party on Saturday May 19 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Meadowbrook Park Dog Park. This free event will be the first of its kind – pugs standing up against thugs – and is intended to raise awareness about the serious problem of bullying.

According to Kingston Pug Parties founder Calvin Neufeld, “Everyone with a pug will want to be there - and the pugless public are encouraged to attend too. Pugs aren’t the only ones who should be standing up against thugs, we all need to take part.”

The Pugs Not Thugs! Pug Party will also be raising awareness about the upcoming free event “Calvin Neufeld On Bullying 2: This Time It’s Personal” that will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday May 26 at St. Paul’s United Church in Perth. Calvin’s first talk on bullying in March of this year took an intellectual left-brained approach to understanding the phenomenon of bullying. This sequel will take a personal right-brained approach to understanding – and undermining – the phenomenon. It will include music, spoken word, and the unveiling of Calvin’s new short film junebug speaks oot aboot bullying eh?, described as “an entertaining and heartwarming interview with a local woman who tells the story of a life scarred by bullying and her via dolorosa to recovery and fabulousness.”

Calvin Neufeld is a self-described “speaker, writer, thinker.” He founded Kingston Pug Parties in 2006 and the group has since grown to a membership of as many as 200 pugs and their families. To contact Kingston Pug Parties, email pugparties@gmail.com.
