Proof Mardi Gras has gone to the Dogs

This is the nicer family side of Mardi Gras. Pawdi Gras is a parade which has gone to the dogs. The parade is led by animals up for adoption, dogs, donkeys, goats, and at least one pig this year. If you would like to parade your pet you pay a fee which helps to support the local shelters. My 12 year son took the attached pictures.

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras day and the skies are blue with the temperatures starting out in the sixties and rising to the low seventies. It is my sons 13th birthday turning 13 on Mardi Gras may be an adventure he may never forget.

Enjoy the dogs.

Wonderful, wonderful photos! Great job and happy 13th to your son. What is his name? A great cause, and he deserves kudos for his photography skills...
And hooray for the New Orleans spirit

Justin

Janet thanks for asking. His name is Justin and he loves dogs. We have a Miniature Schnauzer, not the one pictured which he can’t get enough of. One reason we have an Air Stream is when we have to evacuate for a Hurricane we can take our family and pets with us. For Katrina we had Freddie our Schnauzer,and Buddy my mother-in-law’s mix, oh yea we also took Mother-in-law.

Thanks Jim

Happy 13th to your son. like the pictures.

Your posts speak of you fondness of New Orleans and help me understand why people stay there after all the destruction. Not just a place to live, but a whole way of life. My neighbors and I get to enjoy jambalaya because of you!

Wow Jim that's so nice of you to post those photos! Hope to see more of Mardi Gras on this thread. I wonder what the Krewe du Vieux is up to this year ? I read somewhere that James Gandolfini (Sopranos) is in a krewe too. Have a great celebration! Are you all gonna dance in the second line?
