Krewe of Barkus & Meoux Parade!

We have been members of the Krewe of Barkus & Meoux for a few years now, and this is our 4th annual parade that we have gone to in Shreveport. Every year they come up with a new theme, (Be Mine Fur-Ever was this years with Valentine's Day and all) and you get to dress up along with your animals and go down to the Riverwalk to be in the parade. Shelby came up with the Frog Prince, for the romantic love theme and she was his princess. It is the Animal Krewe's largest fundraiser every year, they help educate and promote programs to benefit neglected and homeless animals, as well as supporting spay/neuter programs. The turn out gets bigger and bigger every year, there were well over 1000+ at the parade this year. It is a wonderful cause that we support and an enjoyable family event that we all look forward to every year. Last year Buster was in the Royal Court as Duke of Loyalty, this year he got to enjoy the scenery and meet a lot of new friends. He got lots of pictures taken, he is a celebrity and a darn cute one at that. He loves all of the attention, but he is also getting a little older now, by the end of the parade he had had enough! I ended up having to carry the spoiled prince the rest of the way, because he just gave out towards the end of the parade. He wouldn't budge, so over the shoulder he went, and let me remind you, he is no little dog, over 60 #'s I believe. It was worth it though, he got some cold water and treats from some kids at the end and was back up and ready to meet and greet in no time. Below are some pics from the parade, enjoy!!
