October 1st, 2008, 09:00 AM
I promise...last one..*L* sorry they are so big , I don't know how to make them smaller!!

this is soooo last year...and I'm still not amused

October 2nd, 2008, 02:10 AM
Melinda love the pics they're all too cute :cloud9: Brina's such is a good sport :highfive: The Crown is purrfect :lovestruck: and I love the Batman or is that BatDog :D w/the boots :laughing:

October 2nd, 2008, 02:18 AM
Melinda, what cute the "tiara" one. :cloud9:

October 2nd, 2008, 04:35 AM
my late grams would have loved to see Brina in her good "rhinestones", Brina was a favorite visitor at the nursing home, and she loves being dressed up. thanks guys!

October 2nd, 2008, 07:12 AM
What a good sport Brina is :lovestruck::cloud9:

October 2nd, 2008, 08:33 AM
Great pictures Melinda :thumbs up

October 2nd, 2008, 02:17 PM
Great pics! :laughing::thumbs up

October 2nd, 2008, 10:15 PM
Cute pics Brina Pup! What a good sport you are! Love the clown one!
Melinda - check out those "rhinestones". You may be surprised if they are older pieces how valuable they may be. They have become quite the collector item lately.

October 3rd, 2008, 06:30 AM
ummm seriously? I'm 50 and I remember playing with them as a wee child....thats why they were left to me, so they are least 48+ years old....

October 3rd, 2008, 06:52 AM
This is all I have on my computer at work. This was Spencer & Sydney from last year.


October 3rd, 2008, 07:18 AM
OMG those pictures are soooooo cute!!
This is Buddy's first Halloween, I am still deciding what he will be!

I did see the CUTEST costume, but it was for a much smaller dog.
it was a little cowboy, saddle and all that sits on the dog!! So it looks like the cowboy is riding the dog LOL.

October 3rd, 2008, 07:27 AM
I saw one like that at Walmart Happycats, check there, they had large sizes at mine I think. I had gotten Peter Pan and Tinkerbell but decided to return them because I didn't quite like them enough fo rthe price I paid for them. I am still looking for the perfect costumes for this year.

October 3rd, 2008, 08:12 AM
ohhhh there is the dynamic duo!!! great pics of sydney and spencer!!! they don't look impressed either

October 3rd, 2008, 09:55 AM
LOL, Spencer actually fell asleep with those horns on when I was taking their pictures. Sydney just stands there like a statue until I take them off of her. LOL

October 3rd, 2008, 10:05 AM
Great pix! Both of Brina & of Spencer/Sydney!

Sadly most costumes will not fit either of the newfs, and getting a costume on Lexi would be like trying to nail jello to a tree. Guess Malone would have to be my costume model. LOL

October 3rd, 2008, 12:46 PM
I just saw this, thanks to the newsletter. I've got to get my butt in gear and get my gang into some costumes!

I loved the Brina pictures. LOL, the Batman one is great. And Spencer and Sydney look wonderful too!

October 3rd, 2008, 01:13 PM
brina's batman costume is up for grabs if anyone would like to use it.....just pm me, its a size large, brina is lab/shepherd if that tells you the size

October 4th, 2008, 12:41 AM
Cute pic of Sydney & Spencer - love the horns :laughing:

October 4th, 2008, 11:49 PM
Beaglemum, Sydney and Spencer are just too cute in their costumes :lovestruck: ......although Sydney definitely is not too impressed. :laughing:

October 4th, 2008, 11:59 PM
Here is one of Deco!Look at how enthusiastic a player he is.:laughing:

October 5th, 2008, 12:02 AM
Aww Deco looks about to fall asleep :sleepy:, the ball will make a nice pillow :dog:

October 5th, 2008, 12:40 AM
LOL.....Deco is very cute :lovestruck: but definitely not the athletic type. :laughing:

October 5th, 2008, 07:53 PM
say hi to Sailor Bud!!

October 5th, 2008, 08:00 PM
He looks great!

October 5th, 2008, 09:30 PM
:laughing: Buddy doesn't look to sure about the hat, cute though :cloud9:

October 6th, 2008, 06:06 AM
*L* oh my gawd, Deco cracked me up *L* he is NOT impressed at all *L* great pic

Liz....awwww Buddy looks so sweet *L* I love the he looks long in the sailer shirt!! *L* doesn't look like he minded it too much either!

October 9th, 2008, 04:00 AM
LOL....Sailor Bud doesn't look too thrilled at all. :D

October 9th, 2008, 05:58 AM
Sailor Bud was not to happy, but I think it's more the camera then his outfit, he's afraid/unsure of the camera, and always looks sad when I try to take his picture.

October 9th, 2008, 12:55 PM

Doesn't giving him a treat afterwards help? :D

October 9th, 2008, 01:28 PM
Doesn't giving him a treat afterwards help? :D

:lightbulb: I haven't tried that yet, thanks :)

October 11th, 2008, 02:29 AM
:lightbulb: I haven't tried that yet, thanks :)

Well, hopefully it will make Buddy think of the camera as a good thing and then we'll get lots more pics. :D

October 11th, 2008, 07:11 AM
around here if you turn on a camera, Brina comes running and poses *L* daughter complains I have more pics of Brina than her and her brother!!

October 11th, 2008, 11:15 AM
I made this cape for Vlad last year. Just to give you an idea how much smaller Maks is, last October Vlad was 8 months old and this fit him perfectly. Maks is just a little over a year, and this is very loose around his neck.

He's still handsome though.

Count Maksimilian

The Count and his little sis :D

October 13th, 2008, 05:07 PM
:laughing: Maks looks more terrified than terrifying!!! :lovestruck::laughing:

Here are my two roosters:lovestruck: (the only ones that had it on long enough for pics!!!:rolleyes::laughing: - the whole photo shoot will be in the pic forum... )

October 13th, 2008, 07:45 PM
LOL, he was pretty scared. He kept chewing on it. Your guys look cute! I think I may need to go via headgear this Halloween. It was hard enough making costumes last year with just two, now with 5 I'll be too nervous one might swallow a needle.

October 13th, 2008, 07:52 PM
I promise...last one..*L* sorry they are so big , I don't know how to make them smaller!!

this is soooo last year...and I'm still not amused

OMG!!! That is just too funny. Gonna have to show this to a few animal lover friends of mine.

October 13th, 2008, 08:28 PM
The Count and his little sis :D

:laughing: Kiska is looking at Maks like: What are you doing & why are you wearing that? :rolleyes:

The black cape goes great w/ his colouring - purrfect for Howl 'o 'ween :D

krdahmer cute lil roosters you have there :D

October 14th, 2008, 01:14 AM
AG, cute pics and you did a great job of the cape. :thumbs up

krd, love your little roosters. :lovestruck:

October 14th, 2008, 05:46 AM
oh I love the cape pics *L* supper kitties!

the roosters are just too funny, they do NOT look amused....I think the one is planning revenge on col. sanders....*L*

October 16th, 2008, 01:15 AM
Hi I'm new here! I saw this thread and couldn't resist posting last year pic of my baby :laughing:
She wasn't amused to say the least! I did the costume myself...

October 16th, 2008, 01:20 AM
CClover that's just purrfect :laughing: great costume :highfive:

October 16th, 2008, 01:34 AM
Heeheehee Great pics everyone :laughing:.

October 16th, 2008, 07:41 AM
CClover, no she does not look amused. :laughing: You did a great job on that costume.

October 16th, 2008, 11:12 AM
Here is Tripods Halloween costume:

He doesn't mind it of course. It was only 4.99$ at target so I couldn't pass it up.

Oh, and don't mind the shredded napkins. I think I may have already told everyone but Mr Sniffles is going threw a phase and insists on ripping up tissues, napkins, papertowels, toilet paper etc. It's cute :lovestruck: Mom hates it though.

October 16th, 2008, 11:14 AM
What a cute little pumpkin!

October 16th, 2008, 05:45 PM
Well my camera is being sent away tommrow, so i thought i would get some pictures of me and keely in our halloween costumes! we are matching bumble bees! (FYI-I am not as big as i look in the pictures, i was wearing my brother ski-doo fleecy and it was waaaaay to big on me!:o)

October 16th, 2008, 06:30 PM

October 16th, 2008, 08:54 PM

October 19th, 2008, 01:09 PM
Well, not sure wheather Buster will be a little devil/vampire or a little angel this year.

What amazed me was that my normal "zoomie" dog never moved while I put the costumes on and stayed for the pictures. I think he was just wishing it to be over quickly:laughing:

October 19th, 2008, 01:22 PM
Hmm...let's see, I'm no doggy psychiatrist, but it's interesting he's smiling with the vampire/devil costume and he's serious with the angel costume. :laughing:

October 19th, 2008, 01:50 PM
Great pics everyone ! :thumbs up

Babymomma , love the matching outfits :laughing: :thumbs up

October 19th, 2008, 02:30 PM

Cute pics everyone. :lovestruck:

Meg, I think that Peach's moustache is in need of a little trim. :laughing:

October 20th, 2008, 02:04 AM
Kathryn tripod looks great :lovestruck: cute lil punkin :D

Babymomma WTG w/the matching outfits - too cute! :D

Megs What a handsome boy Peaches is :lovestruck:, personally I prefer the Hat over the moustache ;) :laughing:

BusterBoo I also think Buster prefers the :evil: costume better :laughing:

October 21st, 2008, 06:06 PM

October 24th, 2008, 12:18 AM
Here's Lucy looking pretty for Halloween. She wouldn't stay still long enough to keep her new crown on. I was lucky to get this shot. HAPPY HALLOWEEN:D

October 24th, 2008, 12:24 AM
BTW, everyone's Halloweeen pets look so cute. Great pics. Happy Halloween again.

October 26th, 2008, 09:21 PM
I'm not sure what Molly thinks about being BATDOG :laughing: but I am pretty sure her expression says it all! :frustrated:

October 28th, 2008, 06:43 PM
Actually, Den-Den needs Buster's angel costume to pair with Corky's devil. Then I'd have a photo to show their true natures. :angel::evil:

October 31st, 2008, 02:56 AM
