The next Mystic Krewe of Barkus Parade is Sunday, February 23rd, 2025

Grand Duchess


Grand Duchess Velvet was once a rescue who was so terrified of people that they considered her near-feral.  At 7 months old, she was brought to a Chow-Chow rescue organization in Canada called Merlin's Hope, and a few months later found her fur-ever home with Howie and Lori Turoff who love her more than anything in the world.  She is affectionate (for a Chow) and happy and loves living in the Marigny where spends every waking hour obsessing over the neighborhood cats.  She is 7 years old and this is her 6th Barkus parade.  Velvet pledges to never to miss one for the rest of what promises to be a long, happy, healthy life. 

Hail Barkus and Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler.

All Hail Grand Duchess Velvet!
