Dog Day at Chicago White Sox Baseball Game 2013

I always look forward to the Chicago White Sox's Dog Day.  Dogs of all types get to enjoy a day at the park with their pawrents.  They have a few giveaways, vendors, hot dogs and even a doggie 'go' area.  Each year, they give a limited number of families passes to go on the doggy parade.  The Parade Pass allows the dogs to walk the perimeter of the baseball field prior to the game.  Usually, the baseball players are practicing before the game and will  take time to stop and talk to those in the parade.   People and their dogs can also appear on television and on the giant screen in the park.   It is quite fun!  A lot of people dress up their dogs in funny outfits like giant glasses and wigs or baseball player t-shirts.  I did receive a Parade Pass this year, but we met a couple with a Great Dane who were upset because each year they come, they never receive parade tickets.  Their big white Great Dane was dressed in a pink tutu.  I offered them my Parade Pass and the woman began to cry because of all the games they had been to, they had never received the  parade tickets before.  They were extremely thankful and gracious and they told us it meant a lot to them.  Seeing their happy faces made it all worthwhile.  As for me, I've received Parade Passes before, so I felt quite comfortable with my decision.    This year we got there a little earlier so that we could have a better selection of seats in the bleachers section.  The bleachers section is open and one can sit anywhere.  So we picked our seats closer to the exit (for my daddy's 'treat' runs) and waited for the game to begin.  Check out the photos from my adventure. 
Who Says Chihuahuas don't like baseball?
I still say half a hot dog is not enough for a chihuahua!

  1. Piranha, we think you are the most generous woofie we've ever met. Just wish you'd gotten a photo of the Great Dane in the tutu. That had to be a sight to see. You look so cute in your baseball outfit. Sorry you only got half a hot dog.

    1. Thank you - it was a little self serving, really - because though they were happy to receive them, we were quite happy to give it to them. :)

  6. You really look the part in your baseball gear. I'm glad you had a good time. I think you deserved a whole hotdog for being so generous and giving away your Parade Pass! You must have made their day!
