Krewe of Barkus!

I have a ton of great photographs to share with you from Sunday's Krewe of Barkus!

I wish I could say that this lovely lab was Pepper and that she was amazingly well behaved...

Or that this guy was Pepper, though this one's sister, also a black lab, did manage to wiggle out of her dress during the parade which is more in line with what I would expect from Pepper, but...

Pepper did not get to go to the Krewe of Barkus because every new dog she meets is so exciting that she bounces around barking and acting like a general moron.  I figured several hundred dogs would either result in her pulling my arm off or it would be so much new dog overload that she would behave, though I was not willing to bet on the later.

So sadly, Pepper did not get to see the Dixie land band...
