Ah yes, Halloween; a time for young children to dress up in spooky costumes and come to your door for candy. And on a lesser note it is also time for childless couples everywhere to dress their pets in ridiculous costumes and take pictures while ooohing and aahhhing over them. Such is the case in our household.
After dinner last night we swung by the local Petsmart. We were really looking for a new doggie door for Abby and when I came across a whole rack of Halloween costumes for pooches I thought, what the heck. A girlfriend of mine has a chihuahua that loves to be dressed up. Abby may enjoy it, too. Boy was I wrong. Here are the pictures to prove it:
“Very funny. Now get me out of this!”
Yes, that is a lobster costume. Being from New England originally I only thought it appropriate.
“Can I take this off now? Please?”
While placing this on her, she turned over onto her back as if she had lost the will to live. My husband and I were in sheer hysterics! My mind kept going back to that scene in A Christmas Story where Ralphie has to dress up in the pink bunnie costume his aunt had sent. Abbie looked about as amused as that. Anybody in need of a dog-sized lobster costume? Drawn butter acoutrement not included. 😉
