May 5 event aims at breaking costumed dog record

April 18, 2012


— A Kansas City promoter is hoping to break a Guinness world record by parading at least 700 costumed dogs, mostly Chihuahuas, down a city street on Cinco de Mayo.

Promoter Mark Valentine says the parade will introduce Chihuahuas to their cultural heritage while helping The Pet Connection, a no-kill shelter on the Kansas side of the bi-state metro area.

Parade participants will pay a $5 entry fee to benefit the shelter.

Valentine says the world record for most costumed dogs doesn't specify a breed, and he thinks there will be more than enough entries to break it.

The parade starts at 11 a.m. May 5 in Kansas City's Crossroads Art District. All canine entrants must be leashed and in costume. Registrations will be accepted onsite.

Please leave the dogs alone! They love being naked!

I agree. This is just one reason other countries collectively scratch their heads or laugh at us. Chihuahuas make better food than companions.

most dogs love to please their owners and don't mind dressing up and playing silly to save their canine cousins!
