I don't generally dress my dogs up. They're tough working dawgs after all... but my friend Tammy is having an APDT rally obedience trial this weekend down in Calgary and Bruce and I have decided to go. For once the Border Collies can stay home and keep Travis company. It's Halloween this weekend which happens to be my favourite holiday so I dug through my tickle trunk (of things I don't dress my dogs up in) today to see what I could come up with in the way of a costume for Brucie.

Here are our options.

The classic bat bandana

A cute little ghosty number?

Or the Superman costume I used to force his grandfather Mateo to wear. Kind of a family tradition of humiliation...

Before anyone says anything. Yes, I've noticed that there's a "wardrobe malfunction" here. The S on his breast plate is upside. Rest assured I won't make that mistake again.

Being an equal opportunity kind of girl I dragged Hope and Kate over and dressed them up too. Now they have even more incentive to remain great working dogs!

Trick or Treat, smell our feet, give us something good to eat.
Not too big, not too small, Just the size of Montreal!

That is the finest looking Superman I have ever seen!

Oh yeah, Superman all the way. It's the most humiliating and isn't that what dressing your pet up is all about?

That Superman costume is really timeless. Kind of a Hallowe'en dog version of the 'little black dress'.
