Don't Mess With the Lucky Dog Man!

Not to be confused with this man.

Here is a heart-warming local interest story about a former-Marine Lucky Dog vendor who foiled a robbery of his hot dog cart in the French Quarter using his bare hands.

Lucky Dog vendors are an iconic part of the New Orleans scene, and they were immortalized by the posthumous Pulitzer-winning John Kennedy Toole in his comedic magnum opus, A Confederacy of Dunces.

Way to go, Roy! And kudos to the New Orleans Times Picayune for putting this on the front page. Thugs beware! Don't mess with the Lucky Dog man!

It's good to have a man like Mr. Gant in one's community. In protecting himself and his business, he also makes the community safer. I have a feeling his dogs will be more popular now as well. very cool.
