K9s considering costumes

Dear Molly,

As it appears that little Bella will not get her butt out is now a fixture in my household, I am considering matching Halloween costumes for this year. Like twins. It’s a time for pretend, not reality.

A snapshot is being sent for your perusal and comments.

Sadly, the young one didn’t understand we were to be class scholars not class clowns.

When her demeanor was snorted at, she chortled something about clowns being this season’s terror. She should not be allowed to watch TV or listen to political discussions.

I see your dilemma between a Flower Child (so easy with the drive-thru bushes in your yard) and punk rocker (Indeed, Mohawks are quite the a show stopper).

Decisions. Decisions. Luckily, we have time to dig up something really good. (To clarify, not talking squirrels here.)

Speaking of rodents, while your efforts to convince RC Cat you could be BFFs are admirable, I do not think the “Hello Kitty” dog costume would really be enough to convince HRH to play.

Please do not send any more costume links this way.

Bella is whining about that Rasta Dog outfit. I’d humourously suggest the pinata pup costume, but she might not get the joke and insist on it, then be so sad when small children stated poking her for candy.

We shall look forward to see what you finally choose.

Yes, organic is cooler – and can serve as a snack if you get bored.

Personally I’ve always found cotton and wool so much more digestible than man-made poly or synthetic fabrics. As far as fringe and rugs anyway.

As for me, if I had my way, I’d imitate a Tornado Drill Participant and simply sit in the bathtub all Holler-Ring night. But as RC Canine of a Realm, one must watch over their charges, even if it is unsettling.

Yours in fur,

The German

    Good to hear from the German and Bella. Matching costumes are in order.

      Bella will always be the little sister, but good food and security has let her fill out with a lovely coat now….that and as vets always say,”The German is a BIG girl” – meant in the nicest genetic way. Nice when stories end well. Thanks for dressing up a comment to leave

        My larger cat Hazel prefers the term fluffy although she has very short hair and the only thing fluffy are her fat cells.

          Fluffy tails count! The German is from the large military grade gene pool, while Bella is actually average for a GS these days…after such a rough puppyhood, Bella is pleased to have a substantial companion…we don’t tell anyone The German is proactive about storms that have any hint of tornadoes.
          RC Cat insists it’s all ruff and fluff, too…if you say something with enough confidence often enough…

          RC Cat sounds so….ummm….political.

          She is pondering a write-in candidacy. She says she has credentials: she does know a rat when she sees one.

    I go nekked, I ate my vampire cape :O) I like the flower power costume, with some mudd it would be a pawfect woodstock-tribute :o)

      Mud would make it authentic. great idea – and so easily added.Especially since Molly has found all the spots where the grass died from lack of water or trampling and has decided these are made-for-her places for intense digging. We blame the cat for telling her pirates buried treasure…
      Thanks for adding some costumed thoughts!

    oh yes, scholars! or um, Nobel winning scientists, with white lab coats? wait that would look too much like veterinarians, never mind! :/

      If the white coats get ya’ entry into meat markets, Bella is all paws in. Thanks for dressing up a comment to leave
