Canines with Courage Float at the Rose Parade tomorrow!



This year’s float, “Canines with Courage,” will showcase an exact replica of the first-ever United States Military Working Dog Teams National Monument, and honor our four-legged heroes and their handlers for their services and sacrifices saving American lives since World War II. 


 
Lucca, a military hero dog that lost her leg from a roadside bomb in Afghanistan while saving a platoon of U.S. Marines, will join Natural Balance on the float and ride alongside Tillman, the World's Fastest Skateboarding Bulldog, who was recently inducted as an Honorary Marine as part of his work with the United States Military Working Dogs National Monument.



You can see more of Lucca’s story here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzcpInWjS7U, and below are also some facts about the “Canines with Courage” float.
·         The float will be lead by military working dog teams and their handlers.
·         The float will measure 55-feet long and 28-feet high, and be enabled to “fold” from a height of 28-feet down to 16-feet in order to pass underneath highway bridges and low wires along the parade route.
·         The float will feature an exact replica of the United States Military Working Dog Teams National Monument made from golden clover seeds and crushed white sweet rice.
·         The replicated monument will be surrounded by more than 35,000 roses, America’s national flower.
Natural Balance has also donated 400 Rose Parade grandstand tickets to locally assigned military personnel so they can be in attendance and enjoy the parade. Tune-in on January 1 to the Rose Parade on ABC, Hallmark Channel, HGTV or Univision to see the float and show their support for the U.S. Military Working Dog Team National Monument.
