A Tale for All Hallows Eve (Well, Really a Brag for All Hallows Eve)

The Petco where Mumma has a part-time job was having their annual Halloween contest this past Saturday.   Since getting this part-time job I haven't been able to do any of the Saturday fun activities that I used to with the kids.  But I was determined to find a way to enter them in this contest.

Luckily Grammy agreed to be bribed into going to my house and picking up the hounds and bringing them to Petco so they could be entered.  As many of you may already have suspected, they were entered as a small flock of sheep thanks to the lovely costumes that we got from Etsy.

There were an awful lot of cute costumes in the contest including a family (mom, dad, kids and two dogs) all dressed as superheroes.  As they started announcing the winners, I was hopeful but nervous.  When most creative costume went to someone else, I thought that we'd missed out.  But then they announced the grand prize winner!

Was it us?  Did we win something edible?

And here's the loot (the well-chewed marrow bone was NOT part of our winnings)


  1. That is awesome! Congratulations! I seriously considered making Flattery a sheep costume this year, but ran out of time.

  2. A big shout out has to go to my partner in crime Charlie. He was a mess by the time we got the babies to their Mumma (made him go 35 mph and errmmm 'corrected'? his every move).

    A big ROOOOO to the grandbabies...they had them flocking in by the herds and it was shear pandemonium!! Yea...I did it and I'm proud of it!!

  3. So very cute!! Way to go Blue and Bettina! :-)


  4. Oh boy, u are cute sheep! :)

  5. Congratulations, a wonderful team effort with a suitable reward :) Love the costumes. We don't do Halloween here. Probably just as well as I'm too lazy to dress up my dogs!

  6. Congratulations!! What a great costume idea.
