So you should surely bring him. Or her. Or them. And if you can’t bring your dog, come anyway, we need escorts for the dogs.
We’ve done the parade for several years now and every year everyone who marches with us has a great time. Some bring their dogs and others don’t. Some take turns walking the dogs, others carry our banner, others toss candy to the kids, and others just walk escort between the dogs and the crowd that compresses in along the parade route in places.
And someone gets to dress as Scooby Doo.
It is really a good time and it’s quite impressive to walk your dog down the wide expanse of the Boulevard of the Allies while thousands and thousands watch and ask to pet your dog. It’s a decent walk so your dog should be in shape for a good walk and your dog should be ok with people and other dogs. We go rain or shine or snow, so if you volunteer, please commit, wear a raincoat, the people will still be there and you will still have a good time.
So if you want to join us, we do need your help. Email Jean at email@example.com and get ready to see a parade from a different, and much more interesting perspective.
And bring candy. And dress your dog in any way you see fit.
The parade is Saturday, March 11 at 10:00 a.m., though you do have to be there earlier to line up.
Hello my name is Thor and I am just that the Hammer of the Gods . Ok well I think I am a god but that is because I am young. They are saying I am about 2 years old but I am probably younger than that. I need some people manners but once you get to know me you will be very impressed with how high I can stand in place for a cookie.
I leannnnnnn very well. I just love to lean into things and knock them over. I am so good at that and my job description is just that; lean into everyone, every wall, every other dog, every sidewalk, even the air, which means I fall down on the ground. But I get up really really quick.
So anyways I was put into the drop box of the shelter in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Yes, it was a really really really big box. I have no idea how they stuffed me into it or why. Here I was being all pretty and trying to impress them with my leaning abilities and they put me into the overnight box at the shelter. I am great with dogs and a little submissive though and good with people but small kids may get knocked over so no kids under 8 years old. Cats are unknown to me and I do walk nice on a leash and I also take treats very very gently. That is me, the treat taker leaner.
My name is Beauty and my name reflects my personality. I am 5 years young and I love love love kids, dogs, and cats. I am a native Ohioan and I love to go for long walks outside and sometimes I wear my booties for that. I am a merle female Great Dane and boy o boy do I get the looks. I love to lay on the bed all day and lived with cats, another dog, and some kids so I am well seasoned for my new home. I am crate trained and listen well to everyone. I am a good little girl and need to snuggle with a new family soon. I was turned into a shelter because my family was too busy for me.
Elsa is a 4 year old special needs gal all the way from West Virginia. She is a pretty special girl, she loves to play with the other dogs and is great in the house now. She likes her crate and is pretty bad about getting up in the am to go outside as she is most comfy in her crate wrapped in warm blankies. Elsa sees partially out of one eye and does here loud noises. Her response to cats is unknown and we ask for larger kids for her because she does like to play with her owners. She often gets very excited to play with tug toys and stuffed animals and she loves people.
My name is Hazel and I am 3 years old. I am a West Virginia gal that just loves to hang around and eat. My puppy making days are over and I get along with other dogs and love to chase the cats around but have never hurt them. I love to play with other dogs and usually start the play first.
I am a beautiful gal that just loves to sit on the couch or hang in the crate and I love to snuggle. Older kids are ok for me as I am very big and push things out of the way with my wagging tail. I was surrendered to a shelter with my puppies and my boyfriend but they have all been adopted and I am left as usual but as they say they leave the best for last.
