Fredericksburg Xmas Parade

A couple of weekends ago, we attended the annual Fredericksburg Christmas Parade. The weather was unseasonably warm, and about 10,000 people showed up. We lined up early to save our spot near the front.
Parker: Why am I the only non-greyhound here?
I like your hat. I like your antlers. Thanks.
As it got darker, time to turn on the lights.
Daddy, are my antlers on straight?
A greyhound 3-way. Poor Sly had to support both Jaime and Stanley.
Even that wasn’t enough, and Stanley finally called it quits.
Get up Stan. The parade is starting.


  1. Oh my gosh, how adorable they all look in their coats, hats and antlers. If there were 10,000 people, does that mean there were more than 10,000 dogs?

  2. They look fantastic all decked out! I really, really, really wish we had a parade around here that I could put lights on our hounds for! :P

  3. Stan gave it everything he had! Poor guy, he said the parade took way toooo long to get started.

  4. Plenty of good laughs here! The picture of Stan laying down in the street is killing me. I wonder if he is related to Casper. If Casper has to stand in one place for longer than 3 minutes...well, he's not going to do it, he's going down.

  5. Mum says to tell you she loves your pictures of the kids. They always catch their personalities and say more than 1000 words ever could. Deccy x

  6. Fantastic photo's, looks like a fun event and very festive.

    love and hugs sue and the Taylor pack xxx

  7. i could see our alex doing what stanley did. he'd lie down and nap in his vet's lobby waiting for his appointment, so lying down before a parade would be typical alex.

  8. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas - give those beautiful kids of yours a kiss from me :)
