Saturday Pet Blogger Hop - Tis The Season To Be Jolly

Lexi, Nitro, Tallulah, Bailey, and I are excited to participate in this weeks Saturday Pet Blogger Hop. Special thanks goes out to our Pet Blog Hop hosts, Life With DogsTwo Little Cavaliers, and Confessions of the Plume! If you would like to read some entertaining pet blogger posts in the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop, just click on one of the host links above or click on the purple Pet Blogger Hop button on the right side of our homepage.

Since it is the season to be jolly I thought I would share just a few photos of our City of Salem Christmas Parade and our Doggy Christmas Open House with all of you. Everyone had a great time at both events.

I hope you aren't to stressed out this holiday season and are finding time to enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer. There is nothing like a good old fashioned hometown parade or photos with Santa to kick-off the holiday spirit. I hope you enjoy our memories. Merry Christmas!

 Our local coffee house...

They were selling hot chocolate and cookies outside at our local coffee house right before the start of the Salem Christmas Parade.

 All the little downtown Salem shops were all decorated for the holidays.

Here comes the start of the Salem Christmas Parade 2011.

The photos below are from Field of Dreams Dog Training and Doggy Day Care School Christmas Open House. My deaf white boxer Nitro getting his photo taken with Santa.

I saw a Dog Ornament tag like this at the PetSmart Holiday Sale so you might want to check there.
