Thoughtless Thursday: The "Eve" of #Howloween Eve

It's a bird...

It's a plane...



We've been trying out some silly outfits the past few days- Petsmart had a great clearance on their Halloween "get-ups" and so we thought we could spring for a few.

How did Bosses to get me to stay so still, and keep the silly hats on?

  1. Patience. Getting a 1-year-old crazy dog to sit still is an art within itself.  A crazy 1-year-old dog with a foreign hat on its head?  Even more tricky.  There were plenty of outtakes for these photos, I promise!
  2. Lots of T-R-E-A-T-S.  I don't work for free. Bosses had to make sure the little green bag with the goodies inside was full, and flowing freely!
  3. Practice! Bosses have been trying to teach me that it's perfectly okay to be wearing something silly on my head.  I really wasn't a fan of the party hat from my birthday, either.  However, once the hat started dispensing TREATS from it, it became a little less freaky.  And...everytime I wear a silly hat, I get even more treats!  If I keep it on for more than 1 minute, more treats.  So on and so forth.  Maybe this hat business isn't a bad thing after all!
How do you get your fluffy friends to wear costumes and other things?  What's the best costume you or your fluffy friend has ever worn?  Discuss!

  1. Costumes = lots of treats! BOL! LOVE your collar, so cute!!

    1. You bet! The more goofy I look, the more T-R-E-A-T-S I get! It's a pretty sweet deal! And thank you- I'm loving the collar, too! We snagged it on clearance at Petsmart the other day- we couldn't resist, especially for $2! :)


Thanks for stopping by! You're "paw"some. I do my best to respond to my "fan mail" within 24 hours of it being received, but please be patient- my paws are pretty clumsy at the keyboard! :)
