Decisions, Decisions…..

Sam's Cousin Toby for Halloween

My Cousin Toby's Mom made a Dracula costume for him one year.....for a Halloween pet parade!

Halloween costumes – it’s a popular subject this time of year as I’ve learned from other blogs Mom and I follow.  Made me remember this photo of my Cousin Toby and his Dracula outfit – way cool huh?  Not sure whether or not HE’s too happy about it though.   His sister, my Cousin Mollye was a ballerina but I can’t find the photo of her in her costume!  Too bad…it was kinda cute….her Mom had made a ballerina skirt out of pink netting and it was fastened to her leash/harness.  Humans can be SOOOO clever sometimes!

Some of my blog friends are sharing their ideas for costumes – like my friend Pedro who’s considering wearing a shark fin (tiger shark to be specific)…..and I got a suggestion that I consider wearing a baseball player’s outfit since I have a built-in mitt (a reference of course to my extra claws on my paws so I look like I have mittens on!).  So many things to think about…..and I’m sure I’ll come up with something more interesting than just wearing my Halloween scarf.  It’s kind of mind-boggling.

I know there are some humans out there who believe animals shouldn’t wear clothes.  Well, I agree to a certain point – I mean can you imagine having to choose an outfit every single day to wear?  A tiny little closet full of tiny little suits or dresses?  I don’t think so!  But for special occasions I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it….lets us flaunt our style – show off our purrsonality if you will…..lets us be creative and have some fun too! 

So, when I figure out what I’m gonna be for Halloween, I’ll be sure and share……how about you?  Pedro, any other “contenders” for Halloween costumes??

Halloween’s-A-Comin’ !!

Sam Wearing His Halloween Scarf

Me in my Halloween scarf....Booooo!

It’s never too early to begin thinking about upcoming “events” and Halloween will be here before you know it.   Some of the stuff about Halloween I’m not crazy about – like that doorbell ringing all night which sends me down to my safe zone in the basement every time.  BUT, sometimes I sit on the very top step of the basement stairs with the door open just enough I can peek, and when the kids are standing there saying “Trick or Treat!” I can see them!  I like all their wacky costumes.  My favorite is the teeny, tiny kids who can barely say “Trick or Treat” but look so cute in their pumpkin outfits or ghost get-ups. 

One of my most favorite things is that Mom and Dad carve a pumpkin that’s JUST FOR ME every Halloween.  Here’s last year’s and you can see why I like it so much!

Halloween pumpkins - including a "cat" pumpkin!

That little one is a CAT - just for me!

We’ve lived here long enough that all the kids in the neighborhood know we always have a cat pumpkin at our house…..they think it’s pretty cool (and so do I!).

One year we were really surprised when the doorbell rang on Halloween.  Mom opened the door and there were two girls on horses all dressed up.  They’d come over from one of the farms around here and were dressed up like princesses or ladies of the court or something…..they were trick-or-treating in reverse though because they were handing out candy – not asking for any treats!  How cool is that anyway?   Mom gave them some treats anyway and petted the horses then off the girls went to the next house.  They were also offering little rides around the yard to any kids living in the houses (I thought about asking if I could ride but changed my mind…..those horses were BIG!). 

So – anyway – I’m trying to decide what to be this year for Halloween.  Thinking it might be fun to be a dog….ARF.
