Things to do in Chicago with Dogs: St. Patrick's Day Parade

Since so many of us spend our winters hibernating, we take any chance we can to get our pups out there to meet people. Luckily for us, St. Patrick's is a HUGE event in Chicago. The city even dyes the Chicago River green:
 The downtown parade attracts huge crowds. Fueled by green beer, the city was alive with locals, visitors, and even so many people from other countries decked out in green and enjoying the festivities in the sub 30 degree temperatures.
We even met so many people who were curious about our pit bull-type dogs and eager to meet our pups. Some people had never met a pitbull before!
Decked out like a Dapper Leprechaun and a Fairy Leprechaun, the pooches became their own attraction. They brought joy to the people, and in turn they were swarmed by the paparazzi:
Mr. B wore his video camera just show what it's really like to be swarmed by paparazzi, and how excited people were to see pit bull-leprechauns. That's Mr. B behind the green hat:
Did any other pups make it out for St. Patrick's Day?
PS. Isn't it unbelievable this was at the same time a year ago?
And can you believe people love meeting pit bull-type dogs this much?

The video is great....They are such good troopers handling all those people. I was getting stressed just watching! But, I'm not fond of big crowds...nor, do I get that kind of lovin in big crowds.
Happy Friday!

Those pups draw quite the crowd. Love the Mr B cam. I'm assuming its a GoPro. Did you buy or make the harness to attach to Mr B? I love watching his green hat go from side to side so people can get a good picture of him. Haha
