|"What ARE these black spots all over me?"|
|"Hey, I look just like that Dalmatian over there!"|
Many people thought he did not have a costume at all, because the black spots blended in to his fur so well. I used ink from a child's stamp pad, so it is non-toxic and washable. And I'm going to give him a bath and wash those spots off... any day now.
|"Ziggy, you look nothing like me!"|
Since Ziggy doesn't like other dogs getting in his space, we stayed a short distance from the others while we waited for the parade to start. Ziggy quickly found something to occupy his attention.
|"Construction workers! I bet they need my assistance!!"|
The first place winners of the costume contest had a decorated wagon for a dog with an adorable outfit, and a real parrot with her own costume - she was wearing a tiny parrot bikini.
|"Let me just sniff over here!"|
|"I'll just even off the edges right here."|
However we eventually made it to the end of the parade, and enjoyed the other festivities. In addition to the costume contest, they had several other contests such as Ugliest Dog, Prettiest Eyes, and Best Trick. Can you guess which one Ziggy entered?
If you guessed the Best Trick contest, you're correct! Ziggy was one of several dogs showing off their best trick. He did his praying trick where he prayed to get adopted, and although that prayer hasn't come true yet, he did win 1st place in the contest! He won some very nice prizes, and made some new friends as well. It was a fun day, and we had a great time.
