Happy Halloween


Polo would like to wish my blog readers a very Happy Halloween! He told me this morning just how sad he was not to have a costume like all his other dog friends, so I ran out and bought him what could very well be the worst costume ever created. Really.

Reason number 8,492 why I should be banned from motherhood. If left to my own devices, I might buy my future child a suit that would cause blindness. I rock.

    @Melissa: I don’t even know what the costume is?! JD asked me the same question, and I think Polo is a SpiderBat…or something. Poor Dog. Can’t wait to see you and Handsome Jackson at B&B Wedding next month…be sure to look extra hot so I can snap more photos of you two! 😉 xoxo…

    Poor Polo! How could he see?! It’s like he has an octopus/spider leeching on his head.

    as i don’t think polo’s gonna go blind from this costume, he will probably run into many, many objects thru his halloween day 🙂

    Poor Hauggy? Poor Polo!

    That’s it. I’m coming to rescue Polo. 😉 I stuffed Louie into a freakish cowboy costume one year and he was upset with me for a good week.

    Well Strider feels VERY left out because despite all the creative costumes I’ve seen on everyone’s blogs he didn’t get one this year 🙁 But Polo looks pretty darn cute!

    I LOVE the spider costume. We saw something like it at Target but opted to get our cockapoo a simple black hoodie that looks like a skeleton. Happy Halloween!

    This is just the short of thing that melts my heart and makes me dissolve into a girly mess. Too dang cute for words. All dogs should have moms who dress them so well! LOL Chris always threatens about banning me from motherhood when I talk about putting sweaters on our cats, so let’s just say he REALLY loved this photo….. 🙂

    I LOOOOOVE it! Has Polo forgiven you yet? Our pup Mace Windu is going live soon too. He is Yoda and sooooo thrilled about it. At least Polo looks happy 😉

    October 31st, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    Polo is toooooo cute! But I have to ask…..why would they make this with the fangs exactly where a pups eyes would be!? lol on brother. Polo totally pulls off the fang to the eye look though! 😉 I soooo wish my husband would me me buy the dogs costumes!

  32. Paul Kremer

    October 31st, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    Ha! The first thing I thought when I saw this picture is that the spider is sucking on his head! You didn’t buy Polo a costume, you bought a brain-sucking spider! hehe! 🙂

    Reason 9,000 why you should be a Mom….to torture your kids, slightly. My son Ean was a chicken for Halloween, just slightly before the age of 6 months….When else are we suppose to be in control!

    Well I don’t dress up my dog, mainly because he’s big, but I can be found telling people things that he tells me. In fact, I don’t dress him up because he told me he doesn’t like it. 🙂

    Hey Jasmine – I should post the photo of Freddie – my Golden Retriever dressed up as a court jester – He was quite cute but very upset that the children collecting candy wouldn’t let him jump on them 🙂
