The place for pets, and their owners

Pet parade and fair


I got this today from Gail Rosselot, a member of Girl Scout Troop 2299’s pet parade organizing committee. Now, regular readers here know I kind of have a thing about pets in costumes 🙂 But I totally support the organizations involved in this event, and it sounds like a great community event. Just keep your leashed friends comfy if you choose to dress them up….Here’s the news:

Briarcliff Manor’s Very First Pet Parade
