Mardi Gras Chihuahua

My name is Boudreaux and I’m a Mardi Gras Chihuahua...
I live in Uptown New Orleans and I have friends all over the world...
They think that I am lucky to live in New Orleans...
Because the king cake is tasty and the Mardi Gras season seems to last forever...

My friends come to visit at the same time every year...
We like to wear costumes and dress up real crazy...
We look so cute and have our pictures taken by people...
We play so hard all day then at night we get very sleepy...

My little brother is Thibodaux and he loves to dress up, too...
He lives in the Marigny and he likes to dress up for his friends...
Sometime she looks silly in his sequins and pink tutu...
He often looks funny in his gold high-heeled shoes...

His friends love to visit and dance to Broadway show tunes...
Thibodaux and his buddies love to be in the parades...
Their costumes are so glitzy and sparkle in the flambeau lights...
They wear lots of boa feathers and even fishnet stockings...

But Thibodaux is my brother and I love him just the same...
Even when he tries to eat my food, he can be such a pain...
He loves Mardi Gras and to be with all his buddies...
Mardi Gras puts a smile on his face and a gleam in his eyes...

I have a sister named Lacey who lives in Mid City...
While I am a small Chihuahua, Lacey is really itty bitty...
She acts like a princess in her beautiful silk costume...
She always makes a grand entrance when arriving in any room...

She has dozens of Chihuahuas who lineup for her attention...
Lacey loves to be noticed and to be hugged by everyone...
She’s always very happy and loves to be held...
Mardi Gras is the time of the year Lacey loves the most...

All the Mardi Gras Chihuahuas get together on Mardi Gras day...
We can’t wait to wear our costumes and be in the Krewe of Barkus parade...
We walk along the parade route and all the people cheer...
The hand us doggy treats and tell us we look so cute...

Maybe this year I’ll meet some new friends...
And we can become best friends only like Chi doggies can be...
All of us will have on beautiful costumes with colors so bright...
We’ll have fun all Mardi Gras day and then go to sleep late at night...
