Halloween Costumes for Dogs

Now that September has arrived, it’s time to start thinking about Halloween costumes for dogs!  Yes, I am one of “those” people…I just can’t help it though.  And it’s not just me.  Actually, my neighbors look forward to seeing our dog, Rosie dressed up when she trick or treats with us.  Who am I to disappoint them?!

Here are a few costumes our dog, Rosie has worn in the past…

Last year we went with the majestic lion mane costume.

She was not happy with that one.  Maybe she knew that only male lions have a mane…who knows.  If you need a good laugh, head over to that post – October…Out Like A…Lion? to see how she handled her costume.

Come to think of it, Rosie has never been very happy with her costumes..,

Pumpkin Costume for dogs

For Rosie’s 1st Halloween, we dressed her up as a pumpkin.  Unfortunately, she spent most of the time trying to bite it off!

I can’t even find a picture of her in the NY Giants Jersey

Just like her mommy, she’s not really a football fan so I am guessing she refused to wear it.

Then there was the costume that was way too small…

Wonder Woman Costume for dogs

Not quite what you would picture for Wonder Woman, is it?  She went on a diet after this picture was taken.  Don’t tell her I showed you this – she will kill me!

I had to buy her a new costume that year but that one ended up being too large!…

Nemo Costume for dogs

Maybe this Nemo costume would have fit her better!

It kept spinning around on her when she walked.  Needless to say, that was a bad year for trick or treating!

I haven’t decided on her costume for this year yet.  Maybe I will have better luck if I let her choose!  I know, I know…crazy dog person…

I could always dress her up as a golfer this year…

    I have a little collection – this year will be my first year at home on Halloween in 3 years. The dog and I will be a witch and he will wear a witch hat.

    OMG… have you seen the ad for Amazon where the Dad dresses the dog up as a lion so the baby would like the dog. Toooo cute. Great post. My Chili has tried to bite my head off when I tried to put a costume on her. Have a great week.
