Coco the dog, left, and Abbie, a Chihuahua-poodle mix, try to decide whether friendship is an option for them while the pets’ owners, Tucker Flatt, 10, of Round Rock, at left, and Kate Hogan, of Mexia, wait patiently. The animals were part of the Boomin’ on the Fourth Pet Parade at Mexia City Park Friday, July 4. Abbie won first place overall.
