Lauren @ What Lauren Likes October 21, 2011 at 7:17 pm

Bahaha!! This made my night!! Love the fast food team!

Felicia (Natural + Balanced) October 21, 2011 at 7:38 pm

i love the 3 headed monster and scuba dog hahaha

This is the funniest thing EVER! I love when the dogs look like they have human legs.

Franzi October 21, 2011 at 7:47 pm

I love all of those!! I always say I wish I had a cute little dog to dress up for Halloween. I planned to be a Zombie this year, but after finding an awesome witch dress for only $5, I changed my mind and now I’m gonna be a witch! I love dressing up for Halloween!

Kerryne October 21, 2011 at 8:46 pm

OMG… those are freaking adorable. I can’t even pick my favorite. I think I said oh that’s the cutest… on every single one ;) I probably won’t dress up. I am lame like that.

sarah@spinach&spice October 21, 2011 at 8:49 pm

Oh my!! This made my not-so-good night a whole lot better :) These are all adorable! Lol I love the Elf one!

lynn @ the actor's diet October 21, 2011 at 8:49 pm

here’s julius as a fire hydrant:

we’ve recycled the costume…b/c he only wears it for like 5 min!

Lindsay @ Lindsay's List October 21, 2011 at 9:53 pm

oh…I love it!! Great idea, Lynn!
My fave is the headless horseman one.

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 21, 2011 at 9:02 pm

Thanks for making me LOL :)

I love the Fast Food Crowd, especially the Krispie Kreme collie on the far left. Dogs in costume are hilarious, they just don’t even care that they look ridiculous.

Maren October 21, 2011 at 9:38 pm

oh my gosh for funny!!! Scuba dog cracked me up! And the lion pit bull looked JUST like my sister’s pit bull Mia! Who, by the way, is the absolute nicest and most well-behaved dog I’ve ever been around in my life. She’s just a doll :) We love her! I immediately sent that picture to my sis! Are you dressing up the pups this year?!

Emily October 21, 2011 at 10:57 pm

I love the 3 headed dog! Mostly because the real pup looks so pitiful in the pic… “I don’t want to be an evil monster, I was just born this way!”

I’m going as a cat for halloween. By that, I mean I’m going to wear way too much makeup, huge fake eyelashes, paint my nails purple, and wear funky striped tights… and top it off with black cat ears and pretend it’s a costume. How many chances do I have to wear stripey tights and the fake eyelashes? Not many. So I’ll take advantage of the opportunity.

I ROARED with laughter reading this post! (get it!?)

Jessy (squeezetheday) October 22, 2011 at 3:37 am

Omg, these are hilarious and with some I had to double check what’s real and what’s part of the dress up, haha! I have a dog, but I don’t dress him up. (Sometimes I feel sorry for pets whose owners do that.) Only occasionally during winter I put him a sweater, if it’s very cold and the snow sticks too much to his hair.

cookie October 22, 2011 at 5:26 am

I’m not a fun of dressing up animals for any reason. I make an exception for putting rugs on a horse when it’s cold outside though.

cookie October 22, 2011 at 5:27 am

and by fun I mean fan…

Susan October 22, 2011 at 9:20 am

I like the ferocious lion the best!! Although Santa’s little helper made me crack up.

As cute as I think Buster would be in a costume, I am trying my hardest not to give in this year. I just don’t know if I’m okay with being one of those people who dresses their dog in costume. It’s bad enough I make him wear booties when we go for walks!

Liz October 22, 2011 at 10:17 am

Um, I totally have friends that I met through dog breed groups.

And I just put fairy wings and a tutu on my pit bull last night.

… you mean other people don’t do this to their dogs?

Huh. Imagine that.

Tiffany October 22, 2011 at 11:52 am

Love this! Of course I dress up the Linx–last yr he was Jack Sparrow but I dont know what he is going to be this year, I will have to fins or think of something creative! I never dress up though, never was much into the costume aspect of Halloween….only the candy :)

cameo October 22, 2011 at 4:05 pm

HAHA! I love a dog in costume. I took my dog to a doggie costume contest one year. She was Dorothy. It was not anywhere near as cool as the costumes pictured, though. I love the 3-headed monster. And HOW did they get all 4 legs in that Tiger Costume? Amazing!

mcintosh October 22, 2011 at 7:53 pm

All were pretty pretty amazing though oddly disturbing and disconcerting (:

My vote is for the fast food dream team Santa’s little helper.

I might have some freakish dreams tonight though….

mcintosh October 22, 2011 at 7:54 pm

OOps that’s supposed to be “…or Santa’s little helper”

Kelsey October 23, 2011 at 1:42 pm

I vote alligator!

Bernadette October 23, 2011 at 3:14 pm

I absolutely love the three headed dog Halloween costume! I have three dogs and I want to dress them up. Thanks for the ideas.

Betty October 23, 2011 at 7:02 pm

Yay! Love that I could be inspiration for a post!! And foreals, who doesn’t have friends because of their dogs?!

Anyways, the tiger is my fav and we’ve already decided that’s what yogi is gonna be next year!

Scout will be the sheriff, but this is the first time I have ever dressed up my animals. (my mom is the crazy lady with the dog attached to her arm who has more outfits than I do)

So clearly I’m behind on my Google Reader feed because there’s no way I would have missed commenting on this post right away!

BWAHAHAHAHAH – seriously it made my night! :D

Brittany October 24, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I saw this the other day! Hilarious. I love them all!

Megan November 13, 2011 at 8:03 pm

Okay, I hope you get notified when people comment because I am so late in writing this, but my sister (Maren, formerly of Omaha now in Minnesota) sent me a picture of the top dog up there – the ferocious lion – because she looks EXACTLY like my dog. The face is undoubtably the same. I just showed my roommates, including Mia’s former mama, and they are freaked out too. Ahh! Anyhoo I was going to link a picture of Mia but I don’t know how so maybe I will just email it to you? I can always do that I suppose.

To answer your question, Mia dressed up as a hotdog this year, and I was a bottle of mustard. Exactly zero kids came to our door. Alas.

Megan November 13, 2011 at 8:06 pm

P.S. I didn’t read the comments first…so I missed Mar’s post. Hehe

Janetha November 14, 2011 at 11:06 am
