Costumes Through the Years

Friday is taking forever to get here! This Friday is The Paws annual Halloween Party and all animals are welcomed to dress up and attend. Ever since they have started in 2008, I have been dressing up and participating in the costume contest portion of the party. First place brings home a $50 gift card, second place a $30 gift card, and third is a $20 gift card to the local pet store. I have been lucky to place most of the years, winning prizes along the way. Most people think I do it for the money, but actually, any prize money or gift cards won I donate to the local humane society. So, my humans try hard every year for the ultimate prize, paying it forward to those in need. 

Here are my past costume and place I made it in the costume contest:
2008 - Doctor (5th place)
2009 - Farmer (1st place)
2010 - Pizza Maker (1st place)
2011 - Scotsmen in a Kilt (1st place)
2012 - World War ll General (2nd place)
2013 - Benjamin Franklin (1st place)
2014 - Michelangelo (the artist) (2nd place)

I'm so excited to share with everyone on Friday what my 2015 costume is going to be! Stay tuned on Monday when I'm going to share my time at the Halloween Party! Until Friday, hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

Is your dog dressing up for Halloween? Is there any pet friendly Halloween parties you are going to attend ? Would love to hear what your costume is and what pet friendly party you will be attending!

Today I'm joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by BlogPaws.

  2. Love them all. I would try and dress them up, but I think it would just stress Hailey out.

  3. Wow!! Your costumes are INCREDIBLE!!!! Dakota isn't the type of dog that likes to dress up, plus his long and thick fur makes it a little difficult. Have a blast!! DakotasDen

  4. So funny! You had some good costumes

  5. Love your costumes! Check out our Monday post for the outtakes from our Halloween photo shoot...and on Sat we'll be posting some of the good shots! :)

  6. Your costumes are too cool! Our pups are pretty tolerant of being dressed up, but they don't LOVE it the way some dogs seem to. Have a very happy Howl-o-ween!

  8. You really know how to rock a great costume! We only wear ours for photos then take them off. BOL!
