The Scottish Terrier Club of Greater Washington will be participating in the Scottish Christmas Walk to be held Saturday, December 3, in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Other participants will include pipe bands, dancers, sports teams and all of the Scottish dog breeds. People come from all over the world to march in this parade. Our club has participated in the Christmas Walk ever since I joined in 1988 and a long time before that. When I first joined STCGW, I was overwhelmed by this fun and boisterous parade, but I marched that year and thought it was the most fun thing I had ever done with my dog.
If you want to join us, know that the weather is usually nice enough to wear just a light coat. The parade route is one mile and the happy crowds love the dogs. Lately, I have been the only club member in attendance. It’s a fun event for you and your dog, plus it supports the club and people can see how well mannered and beautiful our Scotties are. My Scotties like to walk along the side of the street so they can be petted by the giggling kids. I’m asking fellow club members to consider joining us this year. You will have a ball!
