Bob Richardson: This mutt is miffed about dog parade
Hi. My name is Bob Richardson. I am a 6-year-old Turkish Kangal and I weigh 130 pounds. I have won best dressed in the dog parade at the Winter Park Winter Carnival for the last two years. I may be as afraid of flies and bees, but I am miffed that I couldn’t defend my best-dressed title in the Winter Park Winter Carnival parade this year. It wasn’t even an event this year.
My dog-mom, Stephanie, thinks all this winning has gone to my head. But I think she loves the fact that her pride and joy has won two years in a row; once in 2009 as a hunter, and as a cowboy in 2010. I’ve won blankets and Frisbees, and I have several medals to my credit.
Bring back the dog contest.
Editor’s note: For the record, Winter Carnival organizers stated there was a lack of interest in continuing the dog contest when calls were made to Pet Pals and other animal organizations.
