The Mystic Krewe of Barkus was first created in November 1992 at a meeting at Good Friends Bar. Thomas Wood brought his dog "Jo Jo McWood," but people complained about the dog's neurotic ways while in the meeting. Thomas decided to make Jo Jo McWood the Queen of her own parade and captain-for-life, as a way to get back at them. Thus, the Krewe of Barkus was born!
