Cape Cod dogs prepare to welcome Bo Obama

The dogs of Martha’s Vineyard are readying to welcome Bo Obama. The First Pup will be honored Sunday evening by dozens of canines and their families at the inaugural Martha’s Vineyard Dog Parade — whether he’s there or not.

People are invited to bring their dogs to walk in the parade, according to organizer Kerry Scott, owner of Good Dog Goods and a selectwoman in Oak Bluffs.

The idea for a dog parade was first hatched a few months ago by resident Calvin Paris as a way to celebrate the island’s dog-friendliness, the Cape Cod Times reports.

The tie-in with Bo came after it was announced that President Obama and his family are expected to arrive Sunday for a week-long island vacation with their Portuguese water dog.

Scott didn’t know whether the Obama family will attend the dog parade.

“If Bo wants to come out and play, he’s more than welcome,” Scott said.

How cool is that? The First Family vacations with the family dog. Bo’s sure to enjoy the surf.
I just blogged about some rather nice vacation inspired collars and leads. Visit blog.caninekingdom.com/
