My Photos from the Rose Parade
above: Watching dawn break at the parade route in Pasadena
above: The Natural Balance Pet Food float- certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's Biggest Parade Float in history! It was massive,
above: the Natural Balance float approaches, in the front are Dick Van Patten and his son Jimmy Van Patten.
above: a close up of the Van Patten's. Jimmy is holding the new bulldog puppy, named "Sully" in honor of Captain Chesley Sullenberger who landed that airplane in the Hudson River last year and saved all those peoples lives.
above: Tillman prepares to go down the slope on his snowboard. The top of the ski slope was 16' high.
above: Tillman in action, snowboarding down on the float!
above: Another great shot of Tillman in action as the crowd cheered on. Snowboarding bulldogs were the hit of the parade! In fact there has been so much interest, Natural Balance actually now has Tillman Dog treats, and a plush dog toy of both Tillman and Rose (see below):
above: I bought the toys for my nieces who loved playing with them! Tillman even has a Fan Shop on my company's website. (sorry for sounding commercial there)
