Did you see Theo in the parade? My son was walking him while I was handing out dog food. Many people were concerned about Theo as they are not used to seeing a dog walk with a kind of limp. It's actually a "tick" caused by neurological damage from a virus he had as a pup. I didn't think twice about having him in the parade since he walks 5 miles everyday and still has energy to chase Kinsey, our Weim. I was concerned with the heat though. He hitched a ride mid parade and my other two bowed out early for some shade.
