MaggieMoose: Fat Tuesday Portrait
Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:
“It is dressing your dog in a costume….
Mardi Gras is the love of life. It is the harmonic convergence of our food, our music, our creativity, our eccentricity, our neighborhoods, and our joy of living. All at once.”
Maggie is ready for the Big Easy. WOOF WOOF! She’s wearing her authentic New Orleans costume complete with her Mardi Gras beads and the yard dog t-shirt. Fat Tuesday ready. I took her portrait to remember this special day of festivities. No, we’re not in New Orleans, but what we brought home from this past summer’s trip was the spirit of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. Maggie’s human sibling Julie and I went there last August. We blogged all about our trip in a week long series of posts about our Cajun Tails. I shared with Maggie all the wonder of such a magical place steeped in humidity. We loved everything about New Orleans and their outer regions; the people, the eccentricity, the creativity, the alligators, the music, but mostly the food. Today as our Jambalaya cooks on the stove I can tell Maggie is voting for the food! SNIFF SNIFF
I need to look for some sunglasses to put on Maggie. We’re going to recreate a California yard dog photo Big Easy style. Meanwhile, visions of King Cake with its colorful frosting and toy baby inside have us drooling. I’ll pull out the photo album for Maggie and I to reminisce over our NOLA photos. They’re plentiful with seafood images and more. I think we need to put some Zydeco music on too. Come on cher, let’s get our gator on and celebrate the joy of living!
