Anipal Photo Hunt #11: Trick or Treat!

Mom and dad fight sometimes. I wouldn't say it's a whole lot, but they do get mad. Fortunately in dog terms they more snarl at each other than actually fight. Sometimes the fighting is actually about me.

For instance, recently mom said the spikey he-man collar dad made me wear starting last year had to go or at least be replaced when I'm at home by something that won't scratch and dig into her when I hugged her. This one wasn't really much of a fight because they had been sparring over the issue since the collar first went on. I think dad just got tired of her whining about it. I now have a very handsome green hemp collar. We save the spikey one for whenever I might be around mad attack dogs that might try to put the bitey on my neck.

You may be wondering what this has to do with Trick or Treat. Well one of their Yoda related snarling fests was over dressing me up. In this fight I sided with dad. See last year mom bought me a Dogicula costume. It never made it on my body. Well, parts of it made it on my body but never the whole thing. Maybe mom should put it on eBay. So dad said mom was never to try to dress me up again. He did allow a t-shirt so mom got a little compromise going there.

So if you wonder why my Halloween costume is manufactured from faceinhole.com (couture for the stars or the costume-challenged), just know dad won that fight. He actually wins very few so I think it was more that mom knew better than trying to put another costume on me this year. Sometimes I worry when she longingly looks at some of my pal Bear's posts but I just remember that dad is on my side!

So, here is my Halloween picture for this year - it was really hard getting my head in the pumpkin. Took mom all of twenty minutes!

I wish everyone a Happy Halloween! Please join in the Anipal Photo Hunt Blog Hop. Just click on the button below!

ha ha - dat is so cute. Love your snout sticking out of the front. (shhh - I wouldn't like being dressed in a costume either) Having a costume designed in the virtual world is way better.

Fuzz was the same way as you when he arrived. But mom, now his forever mom also, doesnt take no when it comes to dress up. She was very patient with Fuzz. Then he actually started liking it (especially the times it involved cookies). I guess you just need to come and live with us for awhile to get the hang of dress up.
You do look very cute as a Pumpkin Head.

Yoda, thank goodness for Dad's, huh? ;-) If he only wins a few snarling matches then you're lucky he was on your side for this one..not that we're opposed to any puppies who want to be dressed up, but we don't do so well with it either, except for maybe a hoodie if it's really cold so we can relate! You are a very cute "Punkin' Head" though ;-)
God Bless~
