Pet Parade!

April 28th, 2009 · 55 Comments

Welcome to the Pet Parade hosted by ELK of red or gray depends on the day and myself!

The Pet Parade will keep marching through Friday!  Please come back to see the new marchers that join in!

I am adding the Pet Parade to Love Thursday over at Chookooloonks because this parade is filled with love, and I’m adding it to Hooked On Fridays at Julia’s! I am so hooked on the fun of this parade!

Here are my pooches. They make my world a happier place!





It’s time to get marching!  Please join the parade!  The more, the merrier!  Leave a link to your blog post or photo in Mr. Linky.  If you don’t have a blog, tell us about your furry, scaly, feathery friends in the comment section.  You can also leave a link in the comment section if Mr. Linky isn’t your thing! Please remember to:

  • Leave a link to the specific blog post, not to your general blog address, to make it easier for people to find your pet post.
  • Make sure your link works and that it goes to your specific pet post.
  • Put a link back to here in your post so that your readers can come and enjoy the rest of the parade!
  • Visit the other parade participants and please leave comments on their posts!  We all love comments!
  • Enjoy the Pet Parade! Oh, did I see a vendor walk by with cotton candy?!

    Gayle, Your pooches are so pretty (or is it handsome?!). I included my post of my babies from last week. Work has been INSANE this month, and I feel so behind on blogging and reading blogs! Hopefully, things will slow down in the next few weeks and I can get back to blogging business! :-) Thanks for hosting! ~angela

    Thanks for hosting the Pet Parade!! I can’t wait to check out everyone’s pet posts and pictures :-)

    Timmy and Polly are so cute :-) And the angles of the pictures are great — Timmy looks so regal, like he’s surveying his doggie domain :-)

    My pet Parade post is up and good to go :-)

    Hi Gayle – Actually, I have two posts. They are very old posts because I wrote about my pets early in my “blog career.” ha ha.

  • 20 Anne Good // Apr 29, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    Ooooo!!! This is fun! I’m trying to do a separate post for all three of my dogs because I don’t really have one that showcases all three at once!

    Thanks for giving us this wonderful parade of pets to look at and join in on. Has anyone seen the peanut vendor??? I think I heard some hungry elephants coming up the street.

  • 40 Lori Forester // Apr 30, 2009 at 9:33 am

    Sorry but I just need to post again. I had been feeling anxious this morning about work today and started looking at this lovely parade. I did the whole thing as it is before I posted and it brought a smile to may face and took away my anxiety. Thank you for your lovely parade and for the help it gave me today.
