In this month of February, when we celebrate love, we also host all things Mardi Gras! So it is quite fitting that we are privileged to feature a family with New Orleans roots. The story began in November of 2015, when Mary Margaret found Krewe at a Pearl River County SPCA. At 3 months old, he was the smallest of his pack but sported the biggest personality. Needless to say, she fell in love immediately. When choosing a name for Krewe, Mary wanted to pay homage to both her Nola roots and his magnetic and lively personality. Therefore; he was given his name with Mardi Gras Krewes in mind, which hosts parades in the city. He is fun, unique and fabulous time so it was a perfect fit! Ironically, many people think his name is actually “Crew” because he appears to be wearing crew socks based on his coat patterns. Double entendre!
Flash forward to today, where you can find Mary Margaret focusing on her studies with the best “Krewe” in tow. He has faithfully remained by her side and has watched her successfully embrace her third year of UM Law School. During long nights and exam weeks, Krewe often assists Mary Margaret in baking cookies… and is a very talented taste-tester! Upon cleanup, he keeps excellent track of her dish rags by lining them up in the floor, along with his toys. If only he could learn how to tackle the dishes next
We had the lovely opportunity to meet The Gagnet Family when Krewe joined the Spaw club a few years ago. After his first pampering session, he was hooked! Now when he arrives for his appointment, he comes dancing through the gate. Krewe never misses the chance to freshen up his looks, so he can sport them around town. He leaves the Spaw prancing like a dressage horse, proud and in-step! On a good day, he often tries to leave with a new toy he found in his room but who can blame him!
Krewe has such a large and bestowing personality… he is always so happy and gracious. This makes him the perfect companion for strolling around town and meeting new people, which just happens to be a favorite pastime of theirs. The Gagnet family is very gregarious and has made the most of Oxford living. I think we all agree that what makes this small-town great is the amazing people residing within it and the Gagnets are no exception to that rule.
