Okay. I’ll admit it. Even with my intent to suffer through the parade with a smile, I had a blast!! But before I wax poetic about my new parade love, pop over and read about Sissy’s vet visit Friday evening and about a cause we’re promoting.
I’m giving the bassets part of the credit. While waiting for the rest of my group to arrive, of course I was drawn to the BROOD bassets assembling in the grass…
All of the floats in this little parade were golf carts. I couldn’t get over the BROOD float, and I only wish I hadn’t had obligations of my own so I could have done nothing but take photos of the dogs!
The bassets weren’t the only cute pooches on parade. I don’t know the group’s name and this sad photo was snapped as we rolled through the parade route, but these resting Bernese Mountain Dogs were pulling the cart filled with stuffies!! It was really cute…
Maybe next year, I can talk the Knight or my brother inlaw or someone into going and doing nothing but taking photos of all the cute doggies?
We even had a canine elf in our group. (S)he was so well-behaved and quiet (the bassets weren’t silent of course) I barely knew (s)he was there.
Oh — and while not all of the photos were taken by me, all were taken on iPhones. Evidently, Apple is missing a marketing campaign… I’m sure not all of us have iPhones, but I know everyone I snagged photos from did. While I’m issuing disclaimers, although I did help de-decorate the float, our wonderful volunteers/members did the wrapping and decorating of our float. I just showed up, pulled on a Santa hat and smiled and waved and returned the assorted holiday greetings shouted out to us as we meandered down the parade route.
In fact, do note the iPhone in Madam President’s hand… (and her hand-knit scarf… she’s a knitter too).
Don’t tell anyone, but I’m actually already looking forward to next year’s parade and pondering what I could do other than wearing red and a Santa hat.
How was your weekend?
