Would you rather be sitting in your house on a beautiful, sunshiny Sunday afternoon power pointing, or on your grape jelly colored bike heading to the French Quarter to meet friends and see the Barkus Parade for the first time? I tried those old sit-stay commands on myself, but it only took one from Eric..."Come", and I was on my way.
We began up on the balcony at Lafitte's in Exile, but let's face it...with so many pretty pooches you really have to be down in the crowds to take that thousand pictures that will get you a couple of great shots. I stopped counting but the pooches kept coming. It was hard to tell who was prettier (maybe "interesting" is more appropos) the pooches or their parents. Everyone is in costume. There are beads and of course...biscuits and bones!
So I leave you with a photo collage of the Barkus parade. If you are NOT Four-Legged Friendly, this is NOT where you want to be!
