Never one to miss out on the Mardi Gras festivities, New Orleans' legendary Mystic Krewe of Barkus threw their own parade in the French Quarter last week. The crew celebrated their King, a goldendoodle named Wally, and their Queen, a golden Lab named Maggie.

The annual tradition continued this year with the theme Mission: Impossible – Canine Protocol Armstrong Bark.
