El Rey Fido 2016 court members from left to right: Abby, Duchess of the Fire Hydrant; Sheila, Princess of the Food Bowl; Scout, El Rey Fido XIV; Snow White, Duchess of the Chew Toy; and Braille, Knight of the Royal Court.
In spite of the weather, this year’s El Rey Fido XIV & Royal Court graced the stage with their royal paws and were honored for their awesome fundraising efforts during this year’s El Rey Fido Coronation.
This year’s El Rey Fido XIV is Scout, a 10-year-old Labrador Retriever mix. His royal court consists of Princess Sheila, a 3-year-old Chinese Shar-Pei/Pit Bull Terrier mix; Duchess Snow White, a 6-year-old Shetland Sheepdog; Duchess Abby, a 1 1/2-year-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix; and Knight of the Royal Court, Braille, a 6-year-old Dalmatian mix. Together, they helped raise over $35,000 for the pets at the San Antonio Humane Society!
Although the doggie bowls have been emptied and the dancers have left the stage, El Rey Fido XIV and his Royal Court will continue their reign over San Antonio throughout the rest of Fiesta® and through the remainder of the year. Catch these champions of animal advocacy at the Texas Cavalier’s River Parade Monday night and walking the Fiesta Pooch Parade Saturday, April 23.
