The theme of the 125th Rose Parade was “Dreams Come True.” Who can show that better than rescue dogs and police dogs? Three of the parade’s 45 floats did that stunningly.
The Lucy Pet Foundation, which won the Craftsman Award, featured the miraculous beagle Daniel that survived being gassed in an Alabama shelter when all of the 16 other dogs with him died. Other dogs featured on the float wowed spectators with their tricks. All of them were rescued from shelters.
