I marched in the Maynard Christmas Parade on Sunday. This was my 4th parade. I guess you could say I am a professional by now. Mom, dad and I walked over to the start point. There was a helicopter flying over head as we were making our way to the big parking lot where the parade starts and finishes. My friend Santa Claus was in the helicopter. He waved at me! I was happy to be on the ground walking. We found the other dogs and joined them. We are called MayDOG. It stands for Maynard Dog Owners Group. I knew a couple of the dogs from last year. Mom put on my reindeer antlers and I also wore my holiday bandana. We watched as the groups before us started to leave for the parade. There were some old cars, a couple of marching bands, the militia with muskets and a few other groups. Then it was our turn. There was an excellent turn out this year. The streets were lined with people. A lot of people took my picture and remarked about my reindeer antlers. Some said I looked like a deer. I was calm through the whole parade. Mom enjoyed the music from the marching band that was ahead of us. I must admit they played very well. Mom saw some people she knew and waved to them. It was fun. I didn't know it at the time but my pet sitter, Sarah, video taped us as we marched by. You can see the video on my Dogster page! There were a few times where we had to stand and wait. The parade was the biggest one yet and it was so long that the front met the back at Nason Street and Main Street (We do a loop around) We marched back to the start point and then we got to watch the part of the parade that was behind us on the way home. At the end of the parade was my friend Santa Claus. I had just seen him the day before when I had my picture taken with him. He must have been staying in our town over the weekend. We are good friends now. I know he will bring me something really good for Christmas.
