Always a great visual for dog lovers, Paws on Parade is this Saturday. Always a great visual except last year of course, but let’s move on.

Paws on Parade is a benefit for the Bangor Humane Society. It will be at Husson University, Saturday between 9 a.m. and noon. They are calling it Woofstock. Woofstock is also the special sandwich of the month from our friends at Harvest Moon Deli, and the purchase of that sandwich also benefits Bangor Humane Society.

The event has many merchants with booths or tables of merchandise and that includes Bangor Humane Society items.  As an aside, I got a great leash there years ago, and it still gets comments.

Also, there will be raffle tickets for sale so you could go home with an amazing prize, plus a dog.

Now if you’ll call your dog over and show him or her your screen.
