Better get your green out, it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day.
Last year on the Saturday before the leprechaun’s favorite holiday, Minnie the husky mix accompanied me in a parade through the Brookside neighborhood of Kansas City.
Emily from Our Waldo Bungie was there, too, with her foster-dog-of-the-moment Lucy.
I remember the day very clearly. The sun was bright, and the air was warm.
Minnie was wearing a green t-shirt, but we soon had to strip that off to keep her cool and comfortable.
Lucy Liu got lots of looks thanks to her festive green skirt, in which she strutted for the whole parade.
It’s hard to believe that a whole year has passed.
Both of these sweet dogs have now been in their forever homes for several months.
The pre-St. Patrick’s Day parade is happening without us all this year, in just a few hours.
However, I will definitely break out that green bandana Minnie wore to help Luke or Charlie Machete get festive sometime this weekend.
Check out this video I took of her after last year’s parade:
Will you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year? Will you be dressing up your dog?
