OXFORD — The Oxford Hills Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade on Saturday is going to the dogs, and Lorraine Hill of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9787 auxiliary could not be happier.

Military veteran Christy Gardner of Oxford, who underwent multiple amputations following an accident while serving in South Korea, accepted Hill’s invitation to be the auxiliary’s guest of honor on its float, the first it’s ever entered.

Hill said the plan is to collect enough donations for Mission Working Dogs to fill the beds of two pickup trucks and be piled onto the float. Some of the dogs will ride on the float and others will march alongside with their handlers.
