Ghosts of Halloween Past

Happy Halloween!

After the success of the poop factory costume, I thought I would do a little recap of Halloween(s) past and show off my girls and their costumes. In going through the pictures I realized that we dress our dogs up a lot. A lot. For just about any occasion too, even the made up ones. I think we might be having too much fun.


This is our old dog Bailey, a dog who was up for anything. That skirt is four cheerleader pompoms looped together. There was even a coconut bra. I'm sure Bailey was glad that didn't make the shot.

She was also in our wedding. She wanted to be the bride but I said no dice.

This was supposed to be a zebra, but it looked a little too "Hannibal Lecter" for me so that idea was scrapped.

Everyone wants to be the bunny.

This was after a family party at the cottage. I think Chloe got into the liquor cabinet when no one was looking.

Mad cow. 
More like slightly disgruntled cow. Maybe because she's wearing a ladybug costume. 
Good thing she brought her sidekick along for moral support.

Even dog siblings have to wear hand-me-down costumes.

Sometimes you feel like plundering...

And sometimes you just want to kick back in your island jammies.

Dressing up as a Christmas tree never gets old.

Am I the horse or the cowboy?

And of course, the pièce de résistance, the poop factory, in case you've forgotten what it looks like after this seemingly endless stream of photos.

Do we have some easy-going dogs or what? I'd submit these to dog-shaming, but honestly, they don't look very ashamed, do they?

Do you dress up your pets for Halloween? I'd love to see the pictures - link up in the comments if you want to.

Please don't leave me feeling like I'm the only crazy one.

LOL, I am literally laughing out loud ... the tree skirt is too funny and the lady bug...does she have devil horns too?


I'm just getting back from vacation, so glad to be able to check in on what you've been up to. :)

Easy going would be an understatement and they are ALL adorable. We don't do the costume thing ourselves but those great shots of yours sure do make me smile!

Awww, thanks. They are really good dogs.

Well, she was supposed to be a ladybug but the feelers were too small, so I put horns on her and called her a mad cow.
