Parade & Lights

I'm glad you're back so we can continue with our Christmas Village and parade story.
Me and Stanley are going to hide these &^$#@ hats!  But on with the story . . . 

As you recall, we looked for the REAL Santa Paws and did not find him (that's mom with us).  So we roamed around the cottages at Christmas Village.  And in our search, guess what we found??
Yup, a REAL train, on a track, giving rides to kids and in our case, pups!  It was great fun!
(All the time we were having fun our pawrents said they were exposing us to sights, sounds, and people as part of our training.  All we know is that we couldn't walk 20 feet without someone stopping us to pet us and tell us how cute we are!  One little boy even asked if I was a real dog or a stuffed animal!  Anyway, eventually it got dark and we watched the parade.)
It was hard to get pictures in the dark.
There were bands, horses, and floats!  And at the end of the parade, on a fire truck, was Santa Paws!  Unfortunately since there were 20,000 people there (literally) and we are so short, we did NOT see him!  So we told our pawrents, "We gotta find that fire truck!" 
By the time we found the fire truck, Santa Paws had left it.  But the fireman said since we were so popular with the crowds that he wanted his picture taken with us.  Of course we said yes.
Frosty was at the parade too.  We kept waiting for Santa Paws to turn on the lights but a human in the amphitheater kept yakking on and on about thanking the committee, the mayor, city council, yada, yada, yada so we decided to leave.  Our pawrents said we would come back to see the lights before Christmas when there was snow.  Then, just as we were pulling away . . .
Lights ON!
And that means Santa Paws was in his castle!
"Stop the truck Dad!!"
To which mom replied, "Relax boys, we have lots of time before Christmas."

 [Heavy sigh] So we're still searching . . .
