Happy Holidays from the Blue Dog Family!

Check out our awesome picture with Santa! We got to meet him and pose in our Jing-A-Ling Dog Bandanas. I think we all look pretty festive. Here's hoping 2011 is a healthy and happy year for you and your canine companions. Happy 2011!!

Marching in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Holiday Parade

This morning, we braved the cold and marched with the Paws4Ever Dog Drill Team in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Holiday Parade. Jenn was a little nervous that it might be too much for me, but frankly, I was awesome. Jenn was very proud of me. I marched the whole route and never made one bark or ort and did all our Drill Team moves. Before we started, Jenn put on my snazzy rugby style Thundershirt. She thought it might help me chill out while all the noises were going on around us, which it did. Like fire trucks, bands, drums, screaming people, etc. It was very exciting to see everyone in the crowds and we all wore our special holiday style Jing-A-Ling Dog Bandanas. We heard lots of interesting comments!

You can check out our parade video here. And see us doing all our parade moves: the wave, the tractor, side spins, tight lefts/tight rights, double circles, and the crowd favorite-the pinwheel. Drill Team is such fun! And we are always looking for new members to join. So if your dog knows basic commands and how to heel, you should think about joining. It's a fun and positive way to learn new things and work in partnership with your pup. Contact Jenn for details at

Getting Ready for the Chapel Hill Holiday Parade

Here's a great group picture of the Paws4Ever Drill Team during practice. We're getting ready to march in the holiday parades and had two outdoor practices in Carrboro. This coming Saturday will be my first time in the Chapel Hill Holiday Parade and I am so excited. We'll be doing routines and tricks as we march from the Planetarium on UNC's campus down past Akai Hana in Carrboro. Please come out and cheer us on!
