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.

Melinda

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....

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.

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.

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

BeagleMum
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

ancientgirl
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!

Melinda
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

LOL....Sailor Bud doesn't look too thrilled at all. :D

happycats
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.

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

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... )

ancientgirl
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.

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

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.

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:

ancientgirl
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:
