Happy Mardi Gras!!!!

Bonjour everyone!!!!

I, Salinger The Pug want to wish each of you a very happy happy Mardi Gras!

In honor of the big day, mom was nice enough to let me stick my head in an almost empty can of her favorite Cafe Du Monde coffee from N'awlins
"Mmmm....can we get some beignets over here????"

She let me play with her voodoo doll
"Heh heh heh....WHO'S gonna get it today???"

I won't even TELL you the degrading things I had to do for these beads...
"Oh no...if the crew from Pugs Gone Wild shows up, I'm in trouble!"

Mom also wants to pass along a BIG "HAPPY PACZKI DAY" to all of her friends and family from the Detroit area! For those of you up there....have a prune paczki for her...they're her favorite!!!!

Never heard of the prune things, but they sure look good!

Harry Pugalicious said...

Happy Mardi Gras, S-Dog!!!! I managed to avoid being dressed in beads this year.

Pearl said...

hahah The bead picture and the voodoo doll pic are cracking me UP!!!

I am afraid to tell you this... but I have never heard of a paczki.. OR a beignet?!? What are these things?!??

Salinger The Pug said...

Paczkis are a giant donut eaten on Fat Tuesday...they're HUGE in the Polish Bakeries around the Detroit area and people wait around the block for them! They're FABULOUS!

Begnets are these little square pieces of fried dough (like a donut) that they serve down in New Orleans at this magical place called Cafe Du Monde. They're like little warm squares of heaven with powdered sugar all over them!

Salinger The Pug said...

Sorry...I spelled it wrong...
"beignets" (pronounced "Ben-YAYs")

Sandra y Coco said...

I am so lost! I don't know what a beignet is, or a paczki... and I haven't been in New Orleans either... but all sounds fun and yummy!

Clover said...

Happy Mardi Gras! So nice of your mommy to share all that fun stuff with you!! Now my mommy is hungry for some donut-like product.
Love Clover xo

Here in the UK we eat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday! Actually I made them yesterday, as today was pretty much taken up with Pepe getting spayed

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, you've had quite a week. We loved all the posts and photos. That cake looks delish. Too bad you didn't get any. But you did get some weiners.


Rosie said...

Those donuts sound like the funnel cake they make here on the board walk - fried dough with sugar - how could that not be yummy. Also known as Zeppelles (sp??) in some areas.

SassyDog said...

Happy fat Tuesday! prunes, yum! You are too cute in your beads!

Pearl and Daisy said...

Oh, Salinger! That picture of you and the voodoo doll is just way too adorable.

Happy Mardi Gras! Laissez les bons temps roulez! (that's New Orlean-eaze for "have fun" we think LOL)

Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy

Hi Salinger
Your photos are so cute- look at you being so adorable wearing those beads and all! Oh my goodness! What a celebration. We would like to try some of your goodies- mom thinks she can smell donuts cooking now.
Enjoy the rest of the celebration.
