Wow! My diary was chosen as the Dogster Daily Diary Pick today! I am very honored.
Yesterday was an exciting day. I knew something was up when mom put on my holiday bandana when we went out for our afternoon walk. I usually only wear bandanas on special occasions. Next mom did something even stranger! She attached a huge red and white candy cane ribbon to my harness! It was the kind of ribbon you see on holiday wreaths. Mom and dad took me for a walk down the rail trail. We often go there for quick walks. We got to the end where we usually turn around, but mom kept walking. We walked off the trail onto a side street. I could see a lot of people on the main street. That was where we were heading. We walked to a parking lot that was full of strange things. Lots of children dressed in uniforms, music was playing, lots of cars and people! I was very happy to see my friend, Sammy. I remembered where I was and I knew what was going on. I was going to be in a parade! This was my 3rd one. Mom, dad and I were marching for MayDOG (Maynard Dog Owners Group). My friend Willy and Mom's friend Jen came too! We had about 15 dogs. One dog was pulling a cart with candy canes in it. They were to hand out to people who were watching the parade who had dogs with them. Each candy cane had a card about MayDOG. Suddenly a helicopter started to fly over head. Santa Claus was in the helicopter! I don't know why he didn't come in by sled and reindeer! Guess Santa wanted a more modern approach. All the kids where excited. Jen took her daughter, Anna, to meet Santa. Guess Willy met him too. Anna got a candy cane from Santa. The parade started after that. We followed a marching band and the library. The music was good. We marched to the beat of the drums. It was a beautiful day out- in the 50's. There were SO many people lined up along the street to watch us. It seemed like the whole town had come! We marched all around town, went past mom's work, and then came back to the parking lot. We were near the beginning of the parade this year so we got to watch everyone come back. We saw Santa. This time he was in a sleigh but his reindeer were stuffed! He waved to me! I was a good dog this year. I hope I get something good at Christmas. I was very tired when we got home. I had a long nap in my bed. It was a fun and exciting day!
