DID SOMEBODY SAY PARADE!
as told by Groovy Nicholas
Look, I am a busy guy but I would never pass up on an
opportunity to participate in a parade.
My friend, Lori (she has Labradors,they're ok-cousins ya
know) knows I am a great Draft Dog and asked me to walk
in the Wheaton "Dickens of a
Christmas" lighted parade. It
sounded like great fun so I asked
all my friends. Turns out I have a lot of friends.
I started spreading the word via P-mail (I mean E-mail) with the help of
our computer friends and before I knew it, about 40 dogs were going to
bring their people to walk in this parade.
I really prefer the PR stuff so I talked my little brother into pulling the cart and I worked the
crowd. My folks put lights, bells and a Merry Christmas sign on it
and it looked great. There were a bunch of decorated carts pulled
by my friends-they looked AWESOME! Some of my other friends
were wearing costumes, special Christmas collars and clothes.
The parade isn't very long,
only about 5 blocks, but so
many people wanted to meet
me and my friends that we
almost stopped the parade!
The weather was perfect
and the night was clear. All
the floats and the band
had lights. Santa rode
on the biggest and best float at
the very end.
Thanks so much to all our friends, near and far,
who joined us in the parade. We might get invited
back next year and I sure hope you can join us!
