Dog Halloween 2011: Bring It

I just have to say there was a time in the not-too-distant past when my mother and father made me feel like I was the family freak, just because I like to dress up my dog Sadie and take her trick-or-treating once a year.



Last year, their dear Lena's first Halloween, was so much fun. Lena and Sadie went as matching squirrels and got good feedback at our traditonal Dog Halloween event I will call LG. This year, I was excited to let Lena know in advance that Sadie would be going as a turtle (confidential stamp), hoping to coordinate our mass-produced dog costumes.


I should have known something was up when my father recited a list of dog halloween events I had never heard of at kid pickup tonight. Oh, OK . . . I guess we don't have to go to LG. And then the clincher - Lena will not be doing a Target costume this year. Lena will be shopping for her costume at the dog boutique everyone else is talking about in my parents' community dog people group.



Oh, Dog Halloween 2011 is ON. Sadie is going to be an amazing turtle. And I don't want to give too much away, but there might be glitter involved. Crossing my fingers I'm not working through the whole thing.
