You might have already read my story about the Krewe of Barkus last month...they are mentioned in my new book BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS (ISBN 1402729677)and you can find a whole page on http://www.blessingoftheanimals.com
dedicated to animals who participate in Mardi Gras...check it out you will love it and most links have great photos of Mardi Paws animals.
On another not so uplifting note, pet loss is a hard road to travel and so is a good part of BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS. More and more pet services are operating to help pet owners and this article talks about Dignified Pet Services in Oregon.
Let me know if you have any articles or sites that are appropriate to add to the resources.
