St. Patty’s weekend dog-friendly fun

Were you SO bummed that the Old Town Alexandria Fun Dog Show and St. Patrick’s Day parade was cancelled when Winter Storm Riley blew into town? Well, everyone has the luck of the Irish this time, the parade’s been rescheduled to this Sunday, March 18.


A day late of the actual holiday, but never a dollar short, this parade is chock full of pipe and drum corps, classic cars, Irish dancing and dog breed groups. It all begins at 11:30 am at Market Square with a fun dog show, then the parade kicks off at 1:30 pm.

Take note, the parade route has been revised, so don’t be the only person standing on a corner wondering where the bagpipes are!

More dog-friendly fun is at the Super Pet Expo at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly March 16-18. This is one event that the weather can’t wreck, since it’s indoors. Bring your pup along for demonstrations and play areas, but best of all, SHOPPING! There’s dog and dog-lover gear galore.

My best SPE purchase was really cool LED night collars from Lumi Pet that don’t need batteries, you can charge them in a USB port, right next to your iPhone! So now when I’m standing at the back door hissing at Chatham to come inside RIGHT NOW because it’s freezing, at least I know where she’s lounging in the yard, pretending not to hear me.

Happy weekend, and happy dog life!
