Cute Dogs… With Picts!

So we went to Santa Barbara’s “Big Dog Parade” last Saturday and saw lots of cute dogs and took lots of cute pictures.Although we didn’t make it to the actual parade, we saw lots of cute dogs at the park where the parade ended. There were some dog contests, including best tail wagger, biggest smile, and best dressed. This angel/demon pug won best dressed, though Andrew and I thought that the “Star Bucks Dog,” a mut with a little saddle-like thing with cup-holders and a Star Bucks apron with matching owners (not pictured), was really great. I really liked this “Forest Princess” (my own label), a long-haired tiny Chihuahua. Here’s a pict with her matching owner. This brilliantly rainbowed Lhasa apso and Shih tzus mix actually won best tail wagger. The person narrating the contests was from an Animal Planet show (I think “Pet Star” but I’m not completely sure) — he’s on the left side of this picture (that was the best pict I could take of him).

And some other cute (or “tortured,” depending on your outlook) doggies: A striped/dyed standard poodle with matching owner, a group of Great Pyreenes, and the secluded (and seemingly exhausted) greyhound corner. Enjoy the picts 🙂

Ok the poodle looks… pissed.
