Mardi Gras Mambo Day 7: Krewe of Barkus CONTEST CLOSED

Woof Woof!!

The Mystic Krewe of Barkus was envisioned and created in November 1992. This is an all dog krewe that parades on foot through the French Quarter 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 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 What Mommies Need, so be sure to register at both.

  57. Storm, The Psychotic Housewife says:

    I follow you on Twitter! (@psychotichouse)

  58. Storm, The Psychotic Housewife says:

    Pudgy Princess is a rescue – her former owner decided she didn’t want her anymore and dropped her off to be put down 🙁 She ended up on our laps because they knew I was a corgi lover and our other corgi had just passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. I know this is horrible, but I hope the woman gets random outbreaks of hives all the time.

    Actually, all of our pets are rescues or off death row from the shelter.
