(Springfield, Virginia) – Nearly 40 dogs "paw"ticipated in this year's Holiday Pet Parade at Greenspring retirement community in Springfield. The dogs, who pranced along the runway donning their most festive holiday fashions, were those of residents, staff members, and special invited guests.
Each year, the Holiday Pet Parade is sponsored by the Dogs of Greenspring, a resident-run and resident-coordinated social group on campus. Greenspring is a pet-friendly community featuring miles of walking paths and its very own "Bark Park" supporting dog (and owner!) socialization. The very first pet parade was held at Greenspring in 2003.
