ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A slight warm-up and no rain was just what the doctor ordered for a large turnout at Sunday’s Mardi Gras Pet Parade in Soulard.
“Bob” brought his golden retriever and german shepherd, “They’re enjoying it. There’s a lot of excitement for these dogs. Mine look to me and see I’m staying calm, so they stay calm. Everything’s great. We’re having a good time.”
St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Jason Brown had his trusty sidekick with him, “It’s our family mascot Bear (the dog). He’s dressed as a big yellow duck. I hope duck season is over and there’s no hunters out here trying to bag a trophy duck.”
Brown — and Bear — served as grand marshals for the Soulard Pet Parade.
Beforehand they took part in a world record attempt for the Guinness Book of World Records. Brown says the Soulard dogs tried to break the world record for a group bark. They mustered up a 110 decibel bark. The world record was 124. Brown said they’d try again next year.
The Soulard Mardi Gras Grand Parade steps off Saturday March 5 at 11am.
