Yesterday's Chinese New Year Parade brought out revelers of all colors - and species. As you can see from various photographs, dogs were celebrated, this being their year and all. While Gothamist loved seeing dogs wearing traditional Chinese dress (just $25.99!), we wonder if dogs really like to wear dresses and jackets like this. If any dog owners have put a qi pao on their dog, let us know, because it seems difficult.

And Triumph the Insult Comic Dog was on hand, being pulled in a rickshaw complete with camera. Expect to see footage tomorrow night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien - we predict jokes about Chinese people eating dogs!
