dogs in drag


Today at 1:30, Bill Haslam is taking time off from his gubernatorial campaign to announce an important event in Knoxville: The 2nd Annual Mardi Growl. What? Apparently, to spice up the doldrums of February, our fair city has decided to sponsor a parade. With dogs. Dogs dressed up in costumes.

It all happens on Feb. 21 at 11:00 am in the Old City. I'm thinking about entering my two dogs. Even if you don't have a dog, come by and watch all us dog owners preen over our pooches and fret about their sequined drag costumes.

It's sure to be ridiculous.

She's sure to earn some beads too.

My dog is a lush.

Bob would make an awesome entrant, no doubt.

i'll have to consult with Lucy. she gets a little agoraphobic, but like Bella she is a lush.

Despite his festive costume, that hound in the picture appears to be incredibly depressed. Poor guy.
