Happy Mardi Gras!

It's Fat Tuesday, y'all! Time to fatten up and eat our fill before the season of Lent comes to restrict our diets. :) I don't really participate, but it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement since we're inundated with parades, king cakes, and parties right now. Below are more photos from the CAAWS Mystic Krewe of Mutts parade in downtown Baton Rouge.



This image cracked me up.
Looks like the dog is reading the sign and is none too pleased about it! LOL



This is totally not sexual. I have no idea what is going on.
Seems the white dog just wants to protect the brown dog, keep close tabs, or show who's boss.

That boxer is a handsome fella! I'd like to do Mardi Gras once...but not in Nawlins! The Mutt parade looks perfect to me.

The first picture is so perfect. It could be a poster for this event. Love the hot dog shot and the one of white dog sitting on brown dog. So funny.

Adorable dogs and such fun costumes. I tend to forget about Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday being here in Nebraska -- thanks for the shots! xo

Love the wire haired pooch with the Mardi Gras color tutu and the fuer de lis pattern on the top coat.

They're all so adorable. I think the white hound is just using the other brown one as a settee. LOL

Michelle said...

They all look so festive.

Shug said...

All of these photos are cracking me up.... Happy Fat Tuesday! I miss coming to Louisiana every year during the Mardi Gras season. For over 20 years, Sam and I made a trip down to Youngsville to pick up fig cuttings... Lots of celebrating goes on. Hope this ice doesn't come your way. Beautiful photos and beautiful colors of purples and green!
Hugs.... Shug

Wish I looked that good when I doll up!

Karen said...

Awwww, so cute! I love the hotdog! I'm fat enough already Gail LOL!

Kathy said...

I hope the dogs were having as much fun as the people were!

LC said...

These parade pooches were charming and your photos captured the moment wonderfully. I am still grinning about the first 2. The middle ones looked happy to be compliant with their humans' need to party and parade.

The boxer, though, looked puzzled, as if questioning his owner's good sense in thinking that a handful of water compensated for the insult to a pedigreed boxer's dignity.

Buttons said...

That looks like all kinds of fun. Doggy costumes I love it.hugB

Kerry said...

Oh. My. Goodness. Doggie Mardi Gras!! This is so funny! Thanks for sharing. You have some prize-winning canine portraits here...did you think of giving a business card to any of the owners?
