Parade day arrived and the morning was spent getting ready. All the contestants put on their best, favorite costumes. They got their people awake, showered them, fed them, put them in their costumes and trotted on down to Tomkins Park.
The crowd came, the judges judged and the puppies paraded their people around the park.
As the contestants sashayed down the paths, the crowd would step out and take photos of the costumed puppies with their people. The puppies would pose, smile and say thank you. They didn’t really smile and say thank you, but they did sniff around for some kind of treat in the pockets of the picture takers.
This was such a fun event that words will not do it justice, so we’ll just let the pictures tell this story.
