Meeting Smokey the Bear

Smokey the Bear

Hello Everyone and Happy Thursday!

While at the Grand Canyon I ran into the one and only Smokey the Bear. As some of you may remember I dressed up as Smokey for Halloween. I’m not as tall or regal as he is but I’m trying to bring awareness to fire prevention. And reminding other that “Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires.” View Post

Costumes Through the Years

Friday is taking forever to get here! This Friday is The Paws annual Halloween Party and all animals are welcomed to dress up and attend. Ever since they have started in 2008, I have been dressing up and participating in the costume contest portion of the party. First place brings home a $50 gift card, second place a $30 gift card, and third is a $20 gift card to the local pet store. I have been lucky to place most of the years, winning prizes along the way. Most people think I do it for the money, but actually, any prize money or gift cards won I donate to the local humane society. So, my humans try hard every year for the ultimate prize, paying it forward to those in need. 

Here are my past costume and place I made it in the costume contest:
2008 – Doctor (5th place)
2009 – Farmer (1st place)
2010 – Pizza Maker (1st place)
2011 – Scotsmen in a Kilt (1st place)
2012 – World War ll General (2nd place)
2013 – Benjamin Franklin (1st place)
2014 – Michelangelo (the artist) (2nd place)

I’m so excited to share with everyone on Friday what my 2015 costume is going to be! Stay tuned on Monday when I’m going to share my time at the Halloween Party! Until Friday, hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

Is your dog dressing up for Halloween? Is there any pet friendly Halloween parties you are going to attend ? Would love to hear what your costume is and what pet friendly party you will be attending!

Today I’m joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by BlogPaws.

Halloween Recap

 Another wonderful Halloween with lots of great memories made.

This year as most of you know I went as Michelangelo the artist. In the local Halloween costume contest I took home 2nd place.

What a eventful evening it was last night. We had a total of 170 trick -r- treaters and 10 of them were dressed up as Frozen characters. I also gave out 3 doggie bags.

All in all it has been a wonderful Halloween season. Now it is time to start planning next years costume. Now it is my morning nap time.
