Happy Mardi Gras pooches!!!

Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler!!!  Woo hoo!!!  It is Fat Tuesday, pooches!!!

Excitement filled the air in our den this morning as we hopped out of bed on this Mardi Gras day.  Yesterday’s all-day rain that had canceled our excursion was just a memory.  The sun shone brightly and illuminated the trees that had been coated by a layer of ice when the temperature dropped below freezing in the evening while it was still raining.  The temperatures had continued to drop during the night and the combination of ice and cold dissuaded my manservant from attempting his walk/run.  Instead, we busied ourselves decorating for our Mardi Gras celebration today!

At excursion time the temperature outside was still below freezing and my manservant let us know in no uncertain terms that Mardi Gras or no Mardi Gras he was not going to venture outside of our den because of the frigid weather.  Starlight and I took the decision in stride and decided not to let it dampen our spirits.  Instead, we gathered around the dining room table and enjoyed a festive meal Senegalese Chicken with orange-cranberry scones for dessert (pooches, we normally don’t have dessert but today IS Mardi Gras).

Our celebration will continue this afternoon and into the evening until tonight’s Fat Tuesday banquet of Seafood Gumbo will be served!

Party hard today, pooches!  Lent starts tomorrow.  Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler!!!
