Bend, Oregon Pet Parade!

9 Jul

While in Bend, Oregon over the weekend, I had the privilege of getting to enjoy their annual Fourth of July Pet Parade!  I absolutely love animals and when I heard they had one downtown, I couldn’t wait to go see all the festive pets and smiling faces pouring out across the main streets.  I thought I’d share a few of the cutest and/or more interesting ones with you!

I loved this cute little cowboy lizard!

A painted fourth of July turtle!

All of the dogs had cute little outfits on, too!

My favorite!!!!  Air Chihuahua!!!!

I have never seen anything like it but apparently this guy or girl is a celebrity around town!  He was the very last to come through the parade and everyone cheered so loud when dog and owner came through the streets.

His owner would pull her down so all of the little kids in the front rows could pet her.

This was really cool!  No pets involved but it was a bicycle pub where everyone sitting around pedaled and sampled local brewing at the same time!  We saw this going around town at night and I just thought it was so neat and such a fun idea.

And then of course a view of Mt. Hood on the drive back from Bend!
