Pug Prom, St. Pugtrick's Day and Pug-O-Ween: Calgary pug owners celebrate their pets

Teenagers are not the only ones celebrating prom right now. On Saturday, a Calgary pug aficionado group will crown its canine king and queen.

Pug aficionados hold regular events and get togethers for their dogs

Hulk and Yuri are the king and queen of this year's Pug Prom. The event is hosted by the local meetup group, Calgary Pugsters (Calgary Pugsters/Facebook)

There's a group of dog owners in Calgary who really love pugs....

And regularly throw parties for their furbabies.

"They all look kind of the same but all of the members can tell their pug apart," said Libby Porter, with the Pugsters Calgary meetup group.
