Ahoy mateys! Pet portraits with a pirate

Portraits with the River Pirate

Portraits with the River Pirate   

So many things, so little time. However, Saturday, September 19 is a special day.

Nature’s Pet Salem is celebrating their 5th anniversary and we will be on hand to add some adventure. Richard the River Pirate will sail up the Willamette River and join in the fun as he poses with your pet for a fun and unique photo. All pets are welcome, he loves them all as much as we do.

Please join in the celebration and bring your pets in for a photo with the River Pirate.

And for an interesting side note, Saturday is “International Talk Like A Pirate Day!”

As I googled to find out more information about this un-official, official holiday, I discovered it was the brain drain of a couple of goofy guys playing racquetball. Their most brilliant of ideas was to bring Dave Barry into the mix and on Sept. 8, 2002 he published a column about it. Here is the link to the Miami Herald column

I’m sure it was at that point “International Talk Like A Pirate Day” became more official than unofficial.

Drink up me hearties and join us in the festivities. This may be the only appearance the River Pirate makes in Salem town, so let’s show him some love encourage his return.

  • Lori Holcomb - This was such an pawsome event and the River Pirate made it even more so… Thank you again for taking Piglet’s picture, I hope she gave you more than just one to work with… lol. I am also eager to see what you we’re able to capture as well… Thanks again!ReplyCancel
