For dog owners (obviously)--how many times does your dog go out?
Saved 10/11/07 to Pop Pets

Do you dress up your pet for Halloween?


There is something tragicomic about a dog in a sombrero. Dogs have a natural way of telegraphing self-defeat with their dumb, mournful eyes, & the addition of a well-considered costume nicely punctuates that expression of exhausted surrender. Take a square look at this boston terrier & you’ll receive its psychic communication with crystal clarity: ‘I used to run wild, and rule the earth,’ its eyes insist. ‘I chased down anything smaller than me, and several things much larger. I was feared, free, murderous. So, how did I end up in a striped diaper?’ The psychological implications of a dog in costume might be horrible if they weren’t so completely adorable.

Will you dress your pet up in a costume? And, tell us below what he/she will be!

No, not this year..but if I did, I would get a lobster costume for Halo (I think it would be perfect here in FL. Plus, the fishing rodeo is going on all this month..like it does every October.) But, we don't have any trick-or-treaters..all the young couples with children don't live here..only the young without children and the people over 60 years old are here. :rotfl: It would be cool to go to a costume party..I could be Ariel (sp), from the Little Mermaid, Halo could be Sebastian and the hubby could be the Prince. :D Or, I could wear my Bo Peep costume and Halo could be a sheep. I'm thinking about this way too much. :oops:

I don't usually dress my yorkie up for Halloween but she does get tortured multiple times throughout the year when we make her wear dresses, sweaters, or shirts. :evil: ~*~*~*~TNgirl~*~*~*~

I think thats probably what the Boston Terrier believes in his mind, not the actual facts... I feel like thats how my pug thinks too... :?

:rotfl: That really is a great description. They should give that guy a raise. The image of Bug skulking around the woods looking for innocent trick-or-treaters is too awesome. :rotfl:

:rotfl: OMG!!! The mental image of a wild pack of Boston Terriers roaming the countryside and taking down live prey is freaking killing me. :rotfl: :rotfl: BA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! I was feared, free, murderous. Not written by the owner of a Boston Terrier. Too freaking funny. Ahem. I don't know whether or not we will. I saw a hilarious lobster costume at Target, but Bug absolutely hates wearing clothes. So, I don't think we'll actually get it. :( ___________________________________ :breastcancer:

Samson will be wearing his costume (a skeleton) whether he wants to or not. This is the first year I have had him at Halloween, so we'll see when I put it on him whether or not he will rip it to shreds. I'm predicting he will though.

Our dog park has a costume contest as well. This year, Basil is going to be a World War I flying ace, like Snoopy.

Our dog park has a costume contest every year. I'd love to dress them up as an angel & a devil and have them win themselves a prize, but my husband forbids it. I understand, but they're pretty nice prizes. Last year the winner dressed her poodle up as the bride of Frankenstein.

I think Yoshi is going to be a panda, but I don't know what the other dogs will be yet. Laz has a skeleton costume already, but I would like to make them all a theme!
