|My costume is made from Timtex, painted with acrylic and garnished with glitter. Mother used my raincoat for the pattern, and one of her old t-shirts to make the fastener ties so it was comfortable for me to wear.|
At 10:30 we went to the top of Main Street to line up for the big Parade.
|Mother made a little sign so People would know I was a Mer-dog. I was very patient waiting with all the other People and Dogs.|
|Finally the parade started, and I walked with the Big Pack of Other Dogs. There were over twenty of us Dogs, and no one fought because we were this Big Pack, see.|
After the parade there was a Dog Variety Show and I won for Best Costume. I think I would have won Most Obedient as well, but there was a poor little miniature poodle who did not have a costume and the judges gave her that award. I was glad we all got prizes. That lady in the red coat is our friend the Vet Assistant, and she was giving out Lots of Treats to everyone.

I hope you had as much fun as I did yesterday. Bye for now, love from Flossy
