The Parade Is Coming

Lee told me it was the Fourth of July.  Why I knew that because my birthday was yesterday.  Yep you heard that right.  I was her fire cracker dud, I popped on the third of July.
Lee said there was a parade happening and did I want to go?
Okie Dokie I grabbed my leash and we were off.
Well look, to start the parade they had a Bagpiper Group.  Yep they played my theme song.
They yelled I needed my Kilt on!!
Why look how tall my Uncle Sam is!  Uncle Sam brought Miss Liberty with him. 
We have the VFW Group here.
Yep here is the Anderson Township fire department and they are blasting their sirens.
Another Bagpipe, Drum & Fife Group.
Floats and different groups throw candy to parade watchers.  I heard the children yelling candy.
Well I think I'm a child, so when the children ran to get things I ran with them!  I got one piece of candy wrapper and all.  I tried so hard when they tossed small Frisbees and balls and I thought I had one Frisbee it was coming right at me but a little boy grabbed the Frisbee.  My mouth was open and ready to catch but the boy jumped in front - NOT FAIR!
A float with a Gold Eagle.
Coming up next are Cincinnati's
 favorite characters.
Let me introduce Mr. Cincinnati Redlegs and Rosie.
They are our home team, The Big Red Machine, The Cincinnati Reds mascots.
Next came Buddy LaRosa, yep he and his bakers make LaRosa 's Pizza a home town favorite.
Pirate Ship the Scallywag.
Bahahaaaaaa look the woman has a leash on the van.  That van and Smart car are impersonating dogs.  That is the Clermont County Humane Society.
Look another Scottish Group swaying their kilts.
All decorated for the fourth.
Oh little Red Convertibles is Jazzi coming down the road.
No not Jazzi but the Shriners in their little Corvettes.
And we have the Anderson Park Board Represented.
Well that is just some of my July 4th Parade.
Come back next week because I have more of my Nati City to show you.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
Signing Off 
Sweet William The Scot

    Edgar and his mum

  3. Hey Sweet William!
    Wow, a big ole Happy Happy Barkday to you, my very good furiend! A parade is a super way to celebrate. I love all of the bagpipers and that cool doggy-van. OMD what a fun time. I'm so glad you had a great day and I'm wishing you many, many more barkdays filled with love and fun.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Comm

  4. Rumor has it that Miss Liberty and Uncle Sam are now divorced!

    1. Oh No ~ she probably left Uncle Sam because he wasn't giving her any interest on her money.

    2. Or any interest of any kind!

  5. Happy Late Birthday Sweet William, wesa been offline for a few days now, we also were supposed to have a parade on Saturday but it got rained out.
    Great pic's

  6. Oh what a cool parade Sweet William. I wish that I was there to watch it with you.


  7. And oh yah!! Happy Birthday to my sweetie. Got behind without my assistant here!!


  8. Great parade. Bailey used to love parades, but then the noise of the fire engines and the muskets started to bother him, so he couldn't go anymore.

    Our parade got washed out. They refused to postpone and Mom refused to sit in the pouring rain.

  9. Pawsome parade. Too bad that boy stole your frisbee. The kid probably would have cried his eyes out and you would have felt sorry fur him and given him the frisbee anyway.

  10. OMD OMD O M D...... We missed your Birfday???

    We are Sooooooo sorry ... we did not know.
    BUTT we can see that EVERYBUDDY ELSE did.... why, LOOK... they even put on a SUPER PAWrade... just fur YOU...

  11. HEY Sw. Wm. and Miss Lee.... since you touched your paw to the Screen... the luck should have rubbed off right away.
    YES.... mom put the clover on TAPE and sealed it up... and wrote the date on the tape. It is on the Cold Box in the Kitchen.
    We wish we could have been there to see that super pawrade. Or gotten a chance to ride the PIRATE SHIP.

  12. I do not think you are a dud, you showed up in time to let eveyone know that you are ready to celebrate. I enjoyed looking at the pictures of your parade. I have never seen one up close and all. You and Kyla make me LOL>
    Thanks, Bentley

  13. Fanks for sharing the parade wiff us!! Holy Moly it looks like you had a great time!!


  14. That was a fantastic parade! We loved all the bagpipe bands. We're impressed that you got to go.

  21. Happy belated barkday! Pawesome parade y'all really do it up right. Thanks for sharing your photos they were great.

    Aroo to you,

  22. HaPpY BiRtHdAy dearest Sweet William!! Did Lee treat you some birthday cake and presents?
    The parade looked pawsome - so many kilts too, did it make you a wee bit homesick for the motherland?
    We hope you had a grrrreat birthday buddy.
    Wally & Sammy

  23. Dear Sweet William,
    I can't help but note that you seem to have a surplus of bagpipe players in your part of the world. I assume that they are mostly competent. I am wondering if you could possibly arrange to send one of them to Aberdeen to replace the piper who stands on the Union Street in Aberdeen and makes noises like a elephant being strangled. Really, you would be doing the whole city a great favour.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Loved the pictures of the parade.

  24. Crikey Sweet William ..... you had a birthday and I didn't know. Happy belated birthday, mate!! Sure hope you had a good day. That was some parade, aye? What fun!!

  25. Hope you had an awesome birthday!! Our mom just LOVES parades!! Yours looks like it was quite the event! Hope you had fun!!

  26. Happy belated birthday! That parade looks awesome! My sister plays the bagpipes but she's down in Georgia. I don't think they appreciate bagpipes so much down there.

  27. Ring-ring-ring....Hello? Sir William, are you there or are you still trying to catch a ball or frisbee at the parade grounds? What is this that your birthday passed and I did not know about it?!? Why...I would've thrown you a super party to celebrate! I am going to have to mark this big event on my calendar for next year, I am! I hope your 4th weekend was brilliant and that you and your Lee made some memories together.
    *high paws* and *Cairn cuddles (for Lee)*

  28. Oh what a great parade! And you had a place in the first row! How great is that? Bet they played your theme song as a birthday gift for you! Happy belated Barkday! oh and btw: give me a sign if they need some wild boys for the crew of that fabulous pirates ship!

  29. Oh SW, that was one awesome parada, but the best part was your Fifth Barkday, a very happy Barkday to our bestie pal, hope you have like 87 hundred more

    Your besties
    The Mad Scots

  30. I love your patriotic parade! The leash bit was hysterical...we like that kind of humor. You sure have a lot of bag pipers there. I bet it made you proud of your heritage.

  31. It looks like you had a great parade. There's one here but Mom and Dad missed it this year....ours is NOTHING like yours!

    The Florida Furkids

  32. SW, Happy Belated Barkday! Our hooman sister's birthday is the same as yours! So, absolutely not firecracker duds. Love the parade pics, it looks like it was great fun.

    Braeden and Seth

  33. Sweet William that was a wonderful parade! Bagpipers and everything. I have never seen bagpipers.

    Loveys Sasha

  34. Sweet William,
    Firstly, happy happy woofy belated birthday! Looks like you had a great after-birthday party. That parade wasn't for the 4th of July... clearly it was for you! It looked great, I'm pleased to see some pipe bands in there too!
    Have a super week,
    Pippa :)

  35. Your Clairmont Humane Society van looked pretty awesome.

    By the way, super duper duper belated happy birthday!
