Carnival Time, Part II

More photos of the CAAWS' Mystic Krewe of Mutts Parade. What a blast!
I don't know why, but whenever I go to a public place with my camera, there is always a little boy tugging on my sleeve
begging to have his photo taken. I loved the way the dog jumped up to sniff his face and the expression on his little brother's face. It certainly appears the taller boy had been eating something good by the looks of his shirt. :)

Dyed and doodied-up poodles


Blues Brotha

This was the only dog there that did not seem to enjoy being dressed up and pulled along the route.


Dorothy and Toto

This one didn't care for the Mardi Gras theme, insisting on a Hawaiian costume instead. 
Breed a pointer with an Irish Setter, you get a Pointsetter. A traditional Christmas pet!

Love 'em all....LOVE the M*A*S*H. Looks a bit like Klinger with the long nose. [okay, I'm kidding!!!]

The lady in the mobile wheel chair had it really decorated.

The Mardi Gras colors are wonderful too by the way.

This post definitely made me smile, starting with that wonderful first image. That one is priceless. Maybe the pooch was sniffing out whatever delicious treat was all over the front of the boy's shirt.

What an awesome and fun job of getting the pooches all dolled up!! That little pup was sad because he would have rather be dressed in red and black for Ga. Dawgs :-}}
Great shot of the cute boys and dog!! FUN TIME!!

The brother on the left and his precious eyes...and then the dog, right up in the face of the taller boy! And hey...the dirty shirt makes it all real! Excellent photo Gail..

LOL! Yeah, the little one in the yellow doesn't look too pleased!

These are so cute. I would have enjoyed them better had I not just spent the last week sleeping with 3 dogs and a cat, and corralling a second cat. :)
