Marching

I got an email before Christmas saying Canine Companions for Independence had a spot in the inaugural parade and I could apply for a spot. I thought that would be awesome, but it would likely be cold, a really long day and a longer walk than I wanted to put Claren through. So I let the deadline pass.

Then after New Year's, I got another email, this one from a friend saying there were spots still open and she hoped I would apply. I did, thinking i did not want CCI to look undermanned with just 15 people. Turns out that there are 135. How were they short?

I am still pretty excited, and it'll be good.

I hope so but we all are going to get the same coats and hats so we might not stand out. Maybe my new Uggs will set me apart.

Y0U DEFINITELY SHOULD DO IT. YOU CAN BAIL AT A METRO STOP IF IT IS COLS OR RAINY.
