It’s always a good choice to extend kindness and generosity to another person, especially if that person has recently experienced any kind of loss or feeling of hopelessness. It’s even a good idea to extend kindness and generosity just because you feel like it! That’s what happened recently when a community banded together to bring joy to two elderly neighbors in maybe the cutest way ever: by putting on a socially-distanced dachshund parade.
The neighbors are Chris, 97, and Carolyn, 96. The dachshund parade was organized by the “paw-rents” of Friday, a chipper little dachshund, and their friend, designer and artist Jacqueline Lemieux-Bokor.
Lani Nguyen, one of Friday’s owners, has noted that both Chris and Carolyn have owned dachshunds in the past and that she knew how much they missed their favorite friends. After she and Jacqueline bumped into one another in the neighborhood, they got to talking about how to bring a little light to Chris and Carolyn, and the idea of a dachshund parade was born.
