BARC Shelter’s 18th Annual Dog Parade & Show


After getting breakfast at Enid’s in Greenpoint/Williamsburg this past Sunday I walked through McCarren Park to get home. To my surprise there was this INSANE dog event happening on the northside of the lawn to benefit the BARC animal shelter. There were tons of pups in all these awesome costumes. I could have sat there all day watching pug in chaps, and depressed basset hounds sporting cowboy hats. Still trying to figure out why Meow Mix was there since this was a dog exclusive event.

    Damn, you beat me to posting a pic of the Meow Mix truck. I see that thing all the time in Alphabet City and it always makes me laugh.

    Cheers, one of the insane attendees of this event posting [blonde girl, long braids, chaps, three dogs all with gun belts, bandanas and sheriff pins] wondering if you took more pics of this event??

    Only a few more… I was embarrassed to be shoving my camera in all those dogs faces. I don’t think I have any of you… sorry

    I admit it. I brought my dog to the festivities in a pair of chaps (see above). Is it possible to get a higher quality version of the above. I do recognize the ridiculousness of it all but it’s SUCH a great cause. If there’s anyway…. puginchaps@littlesilverbox.com

    The BARC Dog Parade is one of the greatest events in Brooklyn!
    I tried to get my best friend’s dog to kiss me and my godson (a cheap ploy to win, yes) but our pooch got stage fright and off we exited stage right.
    The pug in chaps should have won best butt!
    Hi to the woman with three dogs and blond ponies in chaps. You are always the life of the partay.
