Good morning. Im Linda Wertheimer. A New Mexico man went to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, leaving his Labrador behind. And the dog went missing. A couple on vacation found the pup, but couldn't find a vet to scan his microchip. They drove him all the way back to their home, which happened to be New Orleans. There they did ID the pooch and reunite him with his owner in time for the carnival pet parade. They marched with the Krewe of Barkus.
