How do you make a proposal memorable? Round up a massive grumble of adorable pugs, attach big heart balloons to their collars, and take them to New York’s Central Park on a beautiful autumn day!
Ed, who lives in London, contacted the New York City Pug Meetup group in the hopes he could get a few pugs to help him propose to his long-time love, Alex. He got 16.
While Alex and Ed do not currently own a pug, Alex adores them. She lights up when she sees them and always stops to say hello.
So, this past Sunday, the pugs (and their owners) descended to the Bow Bridge in Central Park on a picture perfect fall afternoon.
Heart balloons in place, the pugs met Alex and Ed in the middle of the bridge and delighted Alex to no end.
Ed quickly dropped to one knee, and asked Alex to be his wife. She said “yes” and all the pugs cheered! (Or at least wonder where the hot dog stands were.)
Alex was thrilled and immediately greeted all the pugs. “How did you do this?!” she said.
“Is there a pug party?” asked strangers, who cooed over the cuddly pugs.
Of course, post-engagement photos had to be taken.
Every pug received a special tag to commemorate the epic event.
Of course no trip to Central Park is complete without stopping at Bethesda Fountain.
Alex, Ed and their new pug friends headed through the park for a celebratory drink.
Ed and Alex say they’ll never forget their afternoon in Central Park with 16 unforgettable furry friends.
