HAPPY PURRIDE, EVERYONE!
Okay, let's get this party started!
It's a jam-packed pawrade, so grab
a Pride Cock-a-tail or three
and settle in for a wild ride!
Our first participant is this cute little baby moose
who managed to find a Pride flag
in the middle of nowhere!
Submitted by Shauna --
And here's Zoey the cat and Mollie the dog
serving up some "come as you are" realness!
Their human is Missy George of This N That.
Kirk of Shadow of a Doubt used his Hollywood connections
to persuade everyone's favourite "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
movie star -- TOTO! -- to come and join our Purride Pawrade!
Next up -- an out 'n proud bunch
of rainbow-flag-waving critters!
Their human, David of
provides the introductions --
"Once the gang heard about the parade, they elected a delegation. Front row, is copy-cat hamster, and Travel Penguin, behind him is Shirley, our Platypus, Lucky the green Irish sheep, behind him is Edwin the Dodo (he is sensitive about being extinct - we adopted him at Oxford, we were staying at St Edmund Hall) and in the back Rex one of the newest flock members (he joined us on King Street.)"
And here's Lilith and Buster Bolfig Borghese,
both dolled up in their best Pride finery!
Their human, Mistress Maddie Borghese
(self-proclaimed "Vamp and Gin Connoisseur")
says that Lilith is channeling
Marsha P. Johnson,
the famous drag queen heroine
of the Stonewall Riots --
See the resemblance?
Next is a painting created especially for
the Pet Purride Pawrade by Stacy of MagicLoveCrow!
Crows are proud too!
Stacy says the painting
is called "Love" and --
"This crow is surrounding the world, which is under its beak. The crow has no gender, it represents all, spreading love and peace."
Direct from the Costa del Sol in Spain,
it's the Ale-Hop Store Cow being both
proud and Covid-compliant!
Thanks to Mitchell of Moving With Mitchell
for his photo-journalism!
But that's not all!
Mitchell also cajoled his cat Dudo
into posing for two artistic Pride portraits --
"Winged Dudo With Booties" and
"Rainbow Jumpsuit Dudo With Hat"
Look how proudly these next doggies
are wearing their rainbow neckerchiefs!
Their human, Suz of Busy Bee Suz, says --
"I was able to wrangle my trio of misfits for some Pride Pics! Max, Lillie and Callie are Allies to everyone! I take it back. Max and Lillie aren't very fond of other dogs, squirrels or rabbits. But EVERYONE else!"
Our next participant is a colourful cat GIF from the internet
provided by Linda of Yéyé Dolls because
her own cat Hailey "didn't feel like cooperating."
Good for you, Hailey!
Always let the humans know who's boss!
Clear a path and make way
for the Rainbow Love Pets who own
Bob of I Should Be Laughing --
Clockwise: Consuelo, MaxGoldberg, Tuxedo, and Ozzo the doggie!
strength of any community!
Bugs can be pets too!
This rainbow collection adorns
a celebratory chocolate cake made by
Jim of The Road to Parnassus --
And finally, this is Annie, Queen of Hearts,
who loves to give big sloppy kisses to everyone she meets
and will play fetch for as long as anyone
is willing to throw her ball!
Horribly abused as a puppy, she was rescued and
now has a happy life with Shauna!

YOWZA! What a wonderful Pawrade!
Thank you so much to everyone
who contributed to its success!
