A Mt. Adams tradition for the last 25+ years, this is a parade fit for the dogs.  Literally.  Admission to the parade is free.  The parade started at the Monastery in Mt. Adams and proceeded down the hill.

Seriously.  Have you ever seen anything cuter than this?  Dogs and their people dressed in Christmas regalia for a parade… so fun!  I have no idea how many people registered their dogs for the parade but the street was packed with paraders for about 20 minutes!

Some pups were in wagons or carts but most were happy to just hoof it.

We saw some of THE CUTEST pups and owners.

Need to have a tree delivered?  Call Jack.  Little Jack (below) was on a motorized bike pulling a tree and was all by himself!  I assume there was an owner with a remote control device somewhere in the vicinity.  It was so funny because the dog appeared to actually be driving himself down the road.
