“If only that boat hadn’t been completely motionless, maybe dada’s picture of it wouldn’t have come out blurry.”
“And by the way, I’d still like a cookie.”

  1. Dennis- I did my first parade last weekend and it was very strange. I don’t understand what all those people are doing standing looking at the street, and a strange dog tried to smell me and yes there were too many children per square acre, and I finally put my head in a corner and lay down. That was better until mom said it was time to go. Maggie the Vizsla who is too old to do a first parade, but mom said I was a good girl.


  2. I think the boats look rather pretty and I’m glad you got to go and enjoy cookies. That sounds like a lot of fun if you ask me. I’ll just say this. If you don’t like screaming children, stay away from Santa at Bass Pro! They were all screaming and hollering there, and when I showed it, it multiplied. You’d have thought we were at a rock concert somewhere. I hope you get some peace and quiet today!


    P.S. Humans and their shaky hands! Tell your dada to prop his elbows on something next time!


  3. I’d say Tucker is the winner of this one! Like the Beautiful Trixie, sometimes being deaf is really kind of nice especially when it comes to hyooge families of small children being close to you. We have one of these bote parades in the summer where all the botes get decorated in patriotic colors (redwhiteand blue, of course). I try to miss it whenever I can.

    Cheers and good wishes,
    Stella Spanador


  4. Dennis It is US Frankie Furter and Ernie. OMD, wee can not believe that you and Trixie didn’t stay fur the entyre Pawrayd. It was BueTeaFull to see. THANK YOU fur lettin us enjoy it. Two Bad eweR Dada furgot his
    Try PAWd. OKAY, Bye


  5. Amazing you could even hear the boat horns over all the “skreeming, showting and kerrying on”! Was there a cloning machine there? From your description, It seems like the kids were multiplying at quite an alarming rate! Perhaps you should ask Santa for some noise cancelling headphones to keep in the car for future accidental crowd encounters.


  6. Dennis,
    I, too, am not fond of those wee humans and I shun any locale where they might congregate. You were certainly brave to hang in the dark with all the gremlins dashing about and shrieking. Your poor ears.

    I hope there were cookies a plenty at some point.



  7. Wow Dennis – that was some parade of lights. Or boats. Or children…
    Sorry you had to remove yourself from the harbor. Meadow knows how to do that too, and she resorts to that trick from time to time, even though she loves chicken too. Glad that for the most part you did okay though! 🙂


  8. Sadly we were not able to view the videos, but we were greatly amused by your Dada’s still photos. He probably shouldn’t quit his day job. We hear you on the screaming gremlins – I don’t see any reason for little kids, other than possibly as bait. Abby tells me that sitting still for little kids results in lots of treats, but I’m not buying that story. It looks like quite the adventure, and frankly, it sounds like Tucker got the best deal – the house all to himself! 🙂
