On Saturday, I attended the annual Howl O Ween party at my local dog park. This was the coolest event I've been to. There were so MANY dogs there! I'd say well over half were in costume, and what costumes there were!
I tried to eat the scarecrow costume Mom got me, so I went nekkid, but there were so many doggies in costume! Mom counted over 65 dogs in attendance, WOW!

Before the big costume contest began, I did some strutting to check out who else was there.
Since I tried to eat my scarecrow costume, Mom didn't want to get another costume, so instead I sported this Halloween scrunchy. It has little bats all around it. I was very surprised no doggies tried to eat it.
There were so many cool costumes. Mom tried to get photos of all our favorites, but sometimes the dogs wouldn't cooperate. This little cutie won a prize. She is a picnic table. See that carrot on her side, I did some helpful removing once the contest was over. Her parents were not happy with me. I couldn't help it, it was a squeaky carrot. I love those!
This cutie reminded me of Bogarts pawsonal trainer Heidi. She was not too happy to be dressed up and quickly removed her tiara.
This being Chicago and all, there were several Cubs and Bears costumes. This little guy was Alfonso Soriano, and I tried to steal the ball off his neck. He he!
This little spider won a prize too.
After the costume contest, I found my neighbor Scarlett. We couldn't resist some wrestling.
I think a good time was had by all doggie attendees!
Best part of the pawty? Chowing down on my goodie bag once I got home. MMMmmmm pumpkin treats, now we're talking!
'Till next time,

Hey Kirby,
How come you ate your costume?? Shame, shame, maybe you could have won a big prize?? At least you got some punkin treats. We love punkin & we even get it on our supper each night. Have a Happy Halloween!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Wow those are some serious costumes! I bet the doog with all the food hanging off him was very popular. I myownself would have spend a LOT of time with him.

Bogart said...


Looks like fun - the spider costume is hilarious! - and I'm happy that you only had to wear a Halloween scrunchie, I'm not a big fan of costumes on me either.


jaffeboy said...

Wow, looks like so much fun!!! I wish we have something like that where we are...

That boxer with the tutu is way cute.

Oh, I would so chew off the carrots & bread from the pinic table costume!!! Good on you Kirby!

Jackson said...

OOoo, there were some great costumes there.Loved the spider! Don't blame you for helping yourself to the carrot, it was kind of asking for it! J x

erin said...

What a cool event! I think you would have made a great scarecrow, Kirby!

Stanley said...

Kirby Boy!

You were sooo stylin' in your howl-o-weenie scrunchy! More dogs should do the scrunchy thing. Maybe you'll start a trend.

You look like you had a blast at the pawty. You didn't need a costume to have fun ~ looks like there were plenty of other costumes to eat or play with!

Goober love,

Mojo said...

65 dogs?! Heaven! That really looks like a hilarious day. That spider costume is a standout - totally brilliant. Which sets me thinking... Mum hates spiders... hmmm...
