We asked you to share photos of your furry friends, and once again, you overwhelmed us with adorableness. Here are some of the standouts from the dozens of entries in our Coast Cutest Pets Contest 2023:
KREWE OF BARKLOXI ROYALTY
Jimmy Suckow and Bella Pappas reign as the 2023 king and queen of the Krewe of Barkloxi.
Jimmy, a.k.a. Ivan Drago, is a 3-year-old puppy who came to the Humane Society of South Mississippi as a stray last April. He found his forever home over the summer with his new family. Bella is a 7-year-old Maltese who is described as a “little lover at heart with a big bark.”
These special pups were crowned on Feb. 12 in front of thousands of their constituents at the seventh annual PAWrade in Biloxi.
