Mom and I went on a field trip this past weekend to meet up with other Welshies from the Mid-Atlantic Welsh Terrier Club to march in the annual Scottish Christmas Walk in Alexandria, VA. This was our first time (club too), but it looks like we'll probably do it again in the future. Our club president (and my grandma (a.k.a. my breeder), made us all the most ADORABLE kilts to wear. Kilts people, not skirts! If I heard this once I heard it a thousand times and it does wear on one's manhood! Mom joked that we should rename our group 'dogs in skirts' since that is what we heard exclaimed over and over and over. Alexandria is REALLY dog friendly so next time we are making plans to stay a little longer so we can take it all in. Parade is made up of bands of bagpipes, clan gatherings, and Celtic dogs. AWESOME. I saw Westies, Cairns, Airedales, Scotties, and on, and on, and on. I also got to get real close to a man in a kilt with bagpipes. I wasn't sure what to think of those bagpipes so I shied a bit and the man laughed saying 'it should be in my jeans' whatever that means, thankfully mom doesn't make me wear jeans, just kilts (mom: it was GENES, Fergus, genes!). My uncle, Blue was there and so was my friend, Sherman who was there with his folks and we had a grand old time. All along the parade route we got to play, people loved on us, took our pictures, and gave us treats! I slept the whole rest of the day! Already looking forward to next year. Wonder what they'll make me wear then???
