I am Gus. I am a Chihuahuas dogg, I am not an Irish Wolfhound dogg. But, I too like Saint Patrick’s Day ‘cause I gets to dress up like a leprechaun. I wonder if Irish Wolfhounds dress up like leprechauns? That would be a big leprechauns dogg!
Here in Savannah, Georgia we have a big, big St. Patrick’s Day celebration that sometimes lasts a week. We have soldiers marching, important peoples waving from borrowed cars and bagpipers piping. I too like bagpipes.
They remind me of family singing when I was a puppy in my litter. We would make the same noises. Likes I said, I too like bagpipes, but I too don’t like drums. Nope! I really don’t like drums.
The St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Savannah started a long time ago in 1813 when Irish Protestants walked around town. Now everybody who is Irish marches in the parade… but I don’t think many Irish Wolfhounds have pranced along the route.
Now the parade starts at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and then goes to the parade beginning place on another street. Lots of families walks along and has fun waving at the other peoples. Some groups of firemen and policemen walk too. Sometimes in their kilts. I too wish I had a kilt. I think it might make me look taller.
This year the Vice President of our country, Mr. Pence, is walking part of the route. So, part of the route is closed off to many things including alcohol stuff like beer and whisky. Jims says that his Irish friends will be at another part of the parade and only his Baptist and a few Methodist friends will see the Vice President. I wonder why?
My research on doggcestry.com says that even though I am of Chihuahuas Mexican breed descent, there could be Irish Wolfhound somewhere way, way back in my lineage. I guess that’s why they say that everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, kind of a little like legal voters in Chicago on voting day.
Many big peoples don’t know that many Irish peoples moved from Ireland to Mexico 150 years ago and longer when lots of Irish moved to America. There was a Governor of Spanish Texas named Hugo Oconor and other Irish-Mexican peoples, John Patrick O’Riley, Juan O’Gorman and the movie actor named Anthony Quinn. Even Jims has relatives named Baskin, O’Neill and Donohoe.
So, I gives the St. Patrick’s Day parade three paws, “cause I haven’t seen one yet. I am only four months old, but I hears that it is great!
So… That’s all I have to say about St. Patrick’s Day. I give it three paws.
If you are a little kid you can send me a drawing and I will put it up over my bed… or even if you are a big peoples… and maybe I can put your drawing on my dogg blogg.
Thank you. Please like and subscribe to my dogg blogg and I will give you licks and wags when I see you.
