Mr. Kippers here-


I’m certain that all of you, like I, were waiting for “Shock and Awe” to happen today when “Kirby the Terrible” went to his first Mardi Gras parade.
⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️BUT⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️
It is with great pride that I relay the news that Master Kirby represented Classic Kippers with great aplomb!


The SHOCK & AWE is happening to my parents and their friends who have only seen Master Kirby’s “out of control, no excuse” behavior in public, but today saw something else!

A little background:
The Highland parade is held during the day and is touted as “The Family Parade”. It’s NOT one of the big night parades! Mom and Dad went to a friend’s son’s home which is at the beginning of the parade route. That’s a plus!
People are everywhere! Some are set up on their lawns for family gatherings and some more like frat parties. It is definitely a smorgasbord of venues up and down the streets.

Every weekend they take Kirby to Lowe’s, Pet Smart, a coffee shop, etc. to work on his socialization. And every time they come home looking bewildered and bemused. First I thought it was the dementia on their part, (they are getting long in tooth)  but upon retrospect, I have decided that it’s “Kirbyitus”.
That being said, I heard Mom talking to Dad about immersion courses. You know, when a parent sends a child to a foreign country to learn the language? Surely they didn’t think it was necessary for Kirby to learn Russian Wolfhound, French Poodle or German Shepherd, because his English, being an English Bull Terrier, is still lacking!
As it turned out, Mom felt that he was still too wild on his weekend outings, so she thought that a Mardi Gras immersion -with lots of people, children, bands, loud music – you know, you’re basic bedlam , might just be the ticket! Evidently it was the right call because a good time was had by ALL- not just Kirby. Even Auntie Susan was there to validate!

So was it immersion or the MAGIC of Mardi Gras?

You decide!
Love, licks and woofs!
Mr Kippers
