Mardi Gras Mambo: Krewe of Barkus CLOSED

Woof Woof!!
The Mystic Krewe of Barkus was envisioned and created in November 1992. This is an all dog parade that walks through the French Quater each year. The Queen is selected by secret ballot and announced only weeks before the parade, and is always a rescued/adopted female dog. The King ascends through the ranks, usually after being a Duke or Grand Marshall.
Every year the Krewe of Barkus donates the proceeds of the parade registration fees, merchandise sales, and ball profits to worthy animal welfare groups.

This year's theme is BatMutt:The Bark Night

To show our love of dogs and honor their parade, the great folks over at FunnyFur.com have offered to be our sponsors. They are giving TWO lucky winners a gift card valued at $25.00.


Funny Fur is the one stop pet shop online. They have everything you need from designer dog clothes, pet carriers, and collars, to furniture and spa products. Funny Fur even has a gift idea section, just in case you get invited to a dog shower. And, if you are a cat owner, don't feel left out, they even have a feline section.

They definitely have what it takes to make your pet feel like royalty. Now that you are ready to make your dog's day, just enter below.

We are going to select one winner from here and one from The Not So Blog, so be sure to register at both.

How to Enter:

Ok, I think after careful consideration Rocky(cairn/yorkie terrier) has decided. He really loves the Peace Camo Bed. He also loved the Capt. America Bed, and I think secretly he wants one of the Juicy Collars. He believes he is a King..
Thanks

The Krewe of Barkus! I'd love to see that parade.

I like the buddy belts... unfortunately Millie is not a small dog, and the price goes up quickly with size!

Millie would prefer the Real Brooklyn Pizza Treat Tin though!Or any of the other treats and chews...
