There is no better way to get in the Holiday spirit than a festive Thanksgiving Day Parade! Our shelter participated in one this weekend and it was so much fun. It’s a great chance to interact with our community, and – better yet – get some adoptable dogs into the spotlight.
I brought adoptable “pit bull” dog Luna. I cannot even begin to describe how hard I fell in love with her in just the few hours we hung out. She is less than a year old, and she’s got so much energy that it’s rare for each of her four paws to be on the ground at the same time when you first meet her. But I love her. She immediately caught on to the fact that jumping on me was going to get her ignored, and that sitting politely would get her treats. The transformation I saw in just one hour while we were waiting for the parade to start was remarkable and showed me how much potential she really has. She’s also great with other dogs. Awesome dog, no? Not to mention she is stinkin’ CUTE!
We also had adoptable Mystic on the route with us! She wasn’t too keen on all the noises and people, so she greeted fans from inside our van. You can see that she performed that job perfectly!
We invite shelter alumni to join us in the parade as well. MCHS alum Taz come with his family, and he was dressed to the nines in his elf outfit. Here he is with his big brother.
As you can see, it was a great morning for shelter dogs in the community! Happy Thanksgiving week!
