Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade

It was a rainy, cold day at the Howl-O-Ween Dog Parade. A stark contrast from last year, when the weather was so beautiful. I took the dogs out in the morning, to run around the park for an hour, but they still seemed to have copious amounts of energy left, and they pulled me most of the way around the mall. Everyone seemed to enjoy the costumes, though some were confused as to what they were (I guess you can't tell what we are from the front, only from the side). The judges weren't confused, though....we got 2nd place!

A little disappointed that we weren't first, but the video gamers were well represented--Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi took 1st place overall. They were cute. Waldo and Gus were DEFINITELY the biggest pair there. There are sooooo many little dogs in our area, and it just makes Waldo and Gus seem that much bigger.

Here's hoping for better weather next year!

Congrats! I would have picked you guys for 1st. It is harder to manage big dogs in costumes IMO so you should get extra credit for that!

Hey! Great job! You should have gotten first place for walking around with your mom when she was all pac-man'd out.

What a great costume! Or set of costumes. Even our dad thought it was really funny!

brooke said...

I still think this is the cutest costume idea. But 2nd place isn't bad... I would've placed you first.
I think Darwin would've been freaked out if I walked her wearing that.
