Dogs On Thursday Post

For my post today I wanted to pass on this announcement and fun event. I am thinking of going and was wondering if any others in the area would like to go along.

We will be marching in the Pittsburgh St Patrick’s day parade on March 14, 2009.The parade steps out sharply at 10:00 am and we will need to be in line at the arena no later than 9:30 am that morning. More details to follow as they become available.We would love to have as many people as possible with their hounds marching behind our Droopy Basset Hound Rescue banner. Join us for “the wearin’ of the green” for this event. Put your dog in costume or not but join us for a morning of fun that is sure to draw attention to our cause of helping find homes for homeless Bassets.
If you can join us please email me at to let me know the names of the people who will be marching and the names of the hounds joining in the fun.
See you in March!!!

    We would have loved to come! Can you imagine..............
    Unfortunately we couldn't organise the flights and pet passports in time although we know you would happily have put us up.
    We love the idea of dressing up too.........we are really sorry we are going to miss it.
