St Patrick - The most celebrated Welshman in America?
So you thought the day belonged to the Irish Wolfhounds and the Irish Terriers? Did you know the St Patrick was born in Britain and some historians believe his actual birthplace was Wales?
Leprechauns the symbol of St Patty's day. I think not. The Mythical, Mischievious Welsh Dwarf Dog should accurately represent this Sainted Day.
The St. Patrick's Day custom arrived in America in 1737, that being the first year it was publicly celebrated in Boston. Most Americans, and other folk across the world, assume that Patrick was Irish: not so, many scholars believe he was Welshman!
Let's celebrate with a parade on the promenade along the Edmonds Waterfront. Starting at the Off-Leash Dog Park parking lot we will strut our stuff along the marina and Sunset avenue. We will have a leash walk for about an hour and then those wanting to can hit the dog beach for playtime. Low tide is at 11:51 so you should have plenty of room to romp.
