Happy Howl-oween!

Trick or treat?

Dozer was all dressed up with nowhere to go this year. My mom had given me these two costumes for Jackson, knowing that I used to dress Rosie up for a local feedstore's pet costume contest each year. The costumes were too small and silly for an elegant (looking, not acting!) Aussie but fit Dozer, and I picked up a blue kid's baseball mitt at a thrift shop for a buck for Dozer to carry in his mouth (I thought the baseball jacket was cuter than the policeman's uniform). Alas, corporate decided to cancel the contest this year, so the dogs have been reduced to begging at the door naked, so to speak.

Someone sent me these wonderful photos of dogs and their portraits in pumpkin. Someone's got talent - like MollyBee! (Click on her name to see the great job she did at pumpkin portraiture.) Enjoy!

Hope you are all having a great weekend; we're off to a barn party tonight.

Happy Reformation Day from . . .

Those are incredible! And the last two feature two of my very favorite breeds: German Shepherd Dogs and American bulls. I have longed to own both of those breeds but never had the opportunity.

Maybe someday...

I'm sure Jackson is happy to have Dozer around, so he doesn't have to worry about being dressed up :)

Those pumpkins are amazing!!! Thanks for sharing.

Dozer looked very cute and those pumpkin carvings are great. I can barely carve the required eyes, nose and mouth lol.
