The Best of St. Croix
Krewe de Barkus Dog Parade 2008
This year's Krewe de Barkus Dog Parade put on by the Krewe de Croix on
the Christiansted Boardwalk is one of the first events put on by the group
leading up to the Mardi Croix Parade. Canines of all sizes and decor
strutted their stuff on the dogwalk.
Sadie's Pet Boutique
was open for the pet
who needed that last
item to make his/her
outfit smashing.
Happy pets leave the
store on their way to
the parade.
Registration was
underway when we
arrived on the
Boardwalk.
Well now, are you an
Irish doggie?
Greetings!
Even the handicapped
were allowed to do
their patriotic best.
A meeting of the minds.
And here we have a
poodle dressed as a
firehouse Dalmatian.
This feisty pooch
wasn't letting any
bigger dogs get the
better of him.
And here comes
Sadie in her pink
detailed blue jeans.
Watch out for that
pirate!
What are cats doing
at this parade?
Puppy love?
The French Maid and
her Poodle.
Some have chosen
to arrive by sea.
The judges table was
set up along the
narrow end of the
Boardwalk.
The Judges.
And so the parade
begins.
And then the parade
slowed. There
seemed to be a
bottleneck at the
judges table.
The delay caused
some to overheat.
An absolute halt.
Finally the line began
to move and the
parade continued into
Strand Street.
