Easter in New Orleans

ABQDog on the Road - Easter in New Orleans

Easter in New Orleans

As far as I'm concerned, New Orleans is one of the greatest places on earth--at least for the cool part of the year--it's sultry, mysterious, exotic, laid-back, bursting at the seams, full of music, unbelievable food, happy people, and of course dogs. Since there are distinct neighborhoods in the Crescent City, you see a lot of people and pooches. Here are just a few from the French Quarter and Garden District...

New Orleans Collies
The broad porch ("gallery") on this elegant home is the perfect place for these collies to pose

New Orleans Pug
but the street is where this little guy wants to be

New Orleans Afghan
while this beauty is just above it all

Big New Orleans Dogs
There are lots of shady, tree-lined streets perfect for a walk,

friendly New Orleans dogs
or hop into a parade with other friendly dogs,

Molly at the Gulf of Mexico
or cool off in the Gulf.

New Orleans Bead Dog
The important thing to remember, though, is that even on a lazy Easter afternoon, in New Orleans the well-dressed dog needs to remember her beads!
