I was pretty excited Saturday morning when Mom and Dad were obviously getting ready for something. Then Mom put my name collar on me, and Blueberry and Lilac got to put theirs on, too. My little feet were tap dancing on the kitchen floor in excitement.
Soon, Mom said it was time to go outside. Dad had set up the ex-pen for us and there were chairs in the shade under our trees. It was sunny and the breeze was blowing. As soon as we walked out, some ladies who were sitting in front of our house to watch the parade started fussing over us. I wiggled with excitement and made sure that everyone had ample opportunity to pet me, and I even shared some of the attention with Blueberry and Lilac. There's only one me for people to pet and there were more people than I could satisfy with just my cute little self anyway.
