Things To Do in Chicago with Dogs: Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade & Dog Paparazzi

Our pooches love meeting people, so we always take advantage of any opportunity to get them out there. Especially if it involves wearing costumes. So living in Chicago, where it's an annual tradition to dye the Chicago River green for St Patrick's Day, we knew this unseasonably warm March was the perfect chance to head downtown to meet a lot of people. A lot of people.
 Much like when the pooches attended the Pride Parade, they were surrounded by 'paparazzi' eager to take photos and meet them.
 Miss M is always eager to pose for photos, striking her signature Zoolander look.
We were always curious how this all looked from the pooches point-of-view, so Mr B decided to bring along his camera and take a video showing what it feels like to be a celebrity surrounded by paparazzi.
We weren't able to get far. See what the pooches see in this video from their perspective. (Mr B even has a kissing scene!)
You can see from the video how happy they are to have the attention, but at the same time we're always aware of their needs and watching whether they may need to rest away from the crowds.

Oh, my gosh. I am loving that hat. Looks like it was a great day for everyone. I actually watched them turn that river green that was pretty awesome. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

So adorable! I keep telling my sister to join the SociaBulls with her own Chicago little pittie mix, Pokey!

We were in the same exact places - wish we had seen y'all! What a fun, fun time... and they are champs!

Diane said...

I've watched the video 3 times now and still has me laughing. For Mr. B to be the shy one of the group he sure was pass out kisses to everyone!! Seriously you guys are going to have to hire body guards for them to fight off the pawparazzi!!! And quite frankly Ms. M looked a little upset without the attention Mr. B was getting...lol

Was it seriously that warm? (yes, folks, that's what I got out of the video!) So jealous! Oh, and Miss M and Mr B were adorable and wonderful tour guides of Chicago as always :)

Mr. B & Miss M are so good with the paparazzi! Lucy Lou was new to the idea of being constantly photographed, but she took it like a champ!

Looks like fun. I've noticed that dressing Koira up always gets her some extra attention, and fewer people obviously avoid us that way! St. Patrick's Day is a great day to dress up the dogs and go out on the town.

Pauley, the Mr. or the Mrs. said...

Looks like a great day! Pauley's new dream is to trade place with your pooches for the day. Oh my how much fun he would have. They could not look cuter :)

Two Kitties One Pittie said...

I love their outfits! You guys are awesome. I really want to take Z. to the Pride Parade, but I'm not sure how she'll do with the noise. It would be fun to have a SociaBulls contingent represented! :)

Corbin said...

Omg, those pictures are great! And I love the video, especially when Mr. B does a full body shake! And, of course, his make out scene!

I totally love it!! I really wish our dogs were that good in crowds. I love the video, and look at all that wonderful advocating they are doing. I wonder how many minds they are changing just by simply being their awesome little selves. Way to go Miss M and Mr B, wonderful, amazing advocates of our favorite misunderstood breed :)

What amazing and wonderful ambassadors for our breed you all are and it DOES make a difference.. one person at a time. You guys rock! Your babies are adorable.
