Royal Pooches Crowed in New Orleans

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS, LA -

Every dog has its day but this one belongs to somewhat of an odd couple....      

In all of their glory, King Dirk the Chihuahua and Queen Barbie the pit bull terrier have been crowned.

The dogs were dressed in their special royal attire for the event.

First was a champagne toast and after that came the eating of the royal pork chops.

The hosts for each canine says both were in bad shape when they were dropped off at the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter, but now they have been nursed back to good health.

Money raised from the event benefits animal shelters around the area.
