McKinney Krewe of Barkus Parade!

As you already know, Valentine’s day was cold. Very, very, very cold. Despite that, I bundled up and headed up to the downtown McKinney area to check out the Krewe of Barkus parade. I found out about the parade thanks to Brigitte from the North Texas Cat Rescue. They had a booth at the event last year, and had one this year too. Unfortunately, this year it was way too cold for any kitties to make an appearance, but Brigitte and several volunteers braved the weather to pass out information.

There were tons of super adorable dogs there, and lots of great costumes. Check out the pictures!

I loved this too cool dog just hanging out before the parade.

My favorite costume had to be a group costume. It was Little Bo Peep with a flock of sheep. The sheep costumes were made of cotton balls. It was ridiculously cute.

I am such a sucker for a BIG DOG!

They had a band playing for the crowd, and I heard the bass player was only fourteen. Way to go, teenage bass player.

The parade got under way…

Even though I love big dogs, I think little ones are pretty darn cute too. Especially Pomeranians.

Don’t you just adore this guy’s floppy face?

This gorgeous redhead made my heart pitter patter. Absolutely beautiful.

The sheep made their way down the road.

Even if it was cold (painfully so), I enjoyed seeing all the dogs in their costumes. I think next year we will have to enter Dante into the parade, I think he would really enjoy it!
