This year’s Grand Marshall is Nacho Moreno, who embodies handsome like no other French Bulldog. The son of Helena Moreno, Nacho is accustomed to being at public appearances with his mom. But, he is looking forward to changing the narrative and having his time in the limelight. Being part of the Mystic Krewe of Barkus Royalty will be the perfect transition into this new role. It is his first foray as a Royal on this esteemed Royal Court, but Nacho knows he is ready and steady for it after participating in yoga avidly. It is something that keeps his mind and his body in balance, and his thoughts away from chewing his mom’s favorite shoes. He is aware that most dogs enjoy chasing squirrels or playing fetch, but he is a believer in in the benefits of yoga instead. Nacho plans to share stories about his experiences doing dog yoga and his personal adaptive techniques for dog yoga (with photos and diagrams) in his upcoming book called Nacho’s Yoga for NOLA Dogs. Nacho believes this could be a movement that will spread positive energy throughout the species faster than fleas in spring. It is sure to be an Amazon bestseller and possibly the start of a merchandising empire. On parade day, look for Grand Marshall Nacho on his Royal float throwing his signature throw, bags of nacho chips.
