Halloween Costumes...


Typically, I don't dress my dogs up in anything. I know they don't like it, and I don't like to force them into doing things they don't like. When I rescued Lex, she came with a shopping bag filled with doggie clothes from her previous owner. The first thing I did was donate all the doggie clothes to my local SPCA, along with the bag of awful dog food there were feeding the poor thing.

But this weekend my nephews thought it would be funny to put Halloween costumes on the dogs. The one on the left without a costume is mine, the one dressed as a leprechaun is my mother's dog, Emma. And if you knew Emma, you'd know how much she hates this sort of thing. She is the female version of "Marley," in the book and movie, "Marley and Me," and there's nothing dainty or delicate about her.

Lol! Dude I agree with you 100% I also have a rescue dog that is part Cairn Terrier and we think a little yorky - looks a lot like Emma. He would never go for anything like that.

Thanks for sharing bro - hope all is well!

I'm not a proponent of dressing real dogs in costumes either. I do a feature every Oct with animals in costumes. Which reminds me...I'd better get to that one. Dressing up animals is sort of like how many of the food and pet products are just geared to the human owner. It's not like the pet is going to decide a food tastes better because we like it better...

Eirik - I felt bad for poor Emma. She's got a good nature.

VE - My dogs will eat anything as long as the bowl is filled :)
