While I was watching the Inauguration yesterday, I heard a commentator state there would be 200 animals in the Inaugural Parade. I was intrigued.
Granted, animals in parades is nothing new. Horses have been in parades for many years. But could it be possible that there would be some other animals in the parade as well?
I had to watch!
And I was thrilled to find that, halfway through the parade, there were…. dogs!
And not just any dogs, but dogs who help people with special needs!
