Mardi Paws 2013

Yappy Mardi Paws!!
Happy Mardi Gras!!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!!  Let the good times roll!!
We are in a dog parade!!   We used our strollers for our floats.
Baron is riding with me in my stroller, and the "puppy" cousins are riding in Baron's stroller.  Amanda and Bailey are a year old this month, I guess I should stop calling them puppies.  BOL!!

I'll have a drink of water while I am waiting for the parade to roll.
It was very windy on parade day.  Mom!  The decoration is attacking me!
 I am dressed in my Celebration tutu from Spoiled Pup Boutique.

 All of the proceeds raised by the parade are to benefit Alaqua Animal Refuge.

Brodie is "driving" his float!

 There is a golf cart under all that cardboard.  BOL!!
Love the dog bowl he has tailgating.  This year the parade theme was football.

We are lined up and ready to start! 

Here we goooooo!!!!  
 Hurry up and throw beads at those people!

People are all over the place!  They are even on restaurant porches.
 Uh-oh!  I think we are out of beads to throw at them!  We threw over 300 beads.  We will need to get more next year, I wonder if 500 will be enough, or maybe we need 1000! 
I think we should rent a golf cart to carry all the beads we will need to throw.  They are heavy!  BOL!  

 Have you ever been to a dog parade?  
Do you celebrate Mardi Gras?
Have you ever been in a parade?

  4. Wow Pepper you look great and I bet those beads were having between the beads and baron and all the decorations you must have been squeezed like a ball.
