After a rainy Festival weekend, Sunday was glorious. The Pet Parade began with Joyce Gunderson once again hosting the fun. Lots of people showed up with their pet children to show them off. The Pet Parade is a happy event and one that is especially happy for the kids who find the dogs irresistable. It was heartwarming for me to hear the stories people told about their dogs many of which were rescue animals. As a dog “mother” I love to see the affection folks show their animals. While this year there were only dogs, I have seen cats, ferrets and other assorted animals cross the stage in the past. This year there were many older dogs – some doing new tricks. So much
for that cliche!
