Spooky Pooch Pet Parade ~


The Spooky Pooch Pet Parade was held yesterday in Lakewood, Ohio.  It was very windy and quite chilly, but thankfully there was no rain.  They were trying to break the Guiness Book of World Records for the most dogs in costume in a parade.  I believe they succeeded with over 350 dogs.
Ohio Pug Rescue had a booth and we made just over $150 for the pug babies.
Here's Pumpkin Annie.  I was hoping someone would see her and fall in love with that face.  I guess it wasn't meant to be.  I don't think she found her forever home :(

 

Meet Tetley, a nine year old male who was looking for his forever home.  He may have found it.  Yeah for Mr. T!!!  I don't know how I missed getting a picture of one and a half year old Sully, a fawn male who may have also found his forever home.


Oh, how I love those gray faces!


Here are a few random shots from the day.
Greyhounds were in abundance.


A very cute little witch.




Some people are so creative.



I'm not sure what the breed of this dog was, but it was a very cool ballerina!


Look at the size of her head!  Check out her toenails.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)

Oh, pumpkin Annie you look just adorable and how I hope you find your forever home soon. Gotta love the "lobstah" costume, and I have to add what creative owners! I did make Winslow Homer a chicken costume last Halloween, but he was much to embarrassed to let me post his photo. Have a good week, Julie.
