Halloween 2020

Due to the pandemic, the North Star Havanese Club isn't having our annual Halloween party. We don't want to encourage Trick or Treaters this year, so our front light will be off. (We did ask the parents of the kids we know in our immediate neighborhood to stop by nonetheless.) All that to say, Shama doesn't really have a reason to have a Halloween costume this year.

But then, in our intermediate tricks class, our instructor said she wants to get a picture of all the students (the canine ones) in ghost costumes, ideally holding the little Halloween pails she gave them in their mouths so they'll look like Trick or Treaters. So she handed out sheets (in our case, a pillowcase), and off we went.

Yesterday, DH and I worked on Shama's ghost costume. Here is a photo of the first version. We did have to cut away a lot of the front to allow her to walk (!), and I realized she tolerated the costume better if I put it on over her Halloween dress (that says WICKED CUTE). I will post a photo of the final version later this week. I'm not holding my breath about her being able hold the pail, however. (Take note, puppy owners! Training your dog to hold - and release - an item is a good thing to work on!)

Please post pictures of your dogs' 2020 Halloween costumes in this thread.

Here is the thread that shows Shama in her 2015 and 2016 Halloween costumes. Here's 2017.

Hmm ... Here's another thread from 2016 ...

Here's the 2018 thread.

Here's the 2019 thread.

I love it!

Do you think the Halloween dress holds the ghost costume away from her body?

This Halloween happens to coincide with the year we decided our kids are too old for trick or treating. Actually, I thought they were a while ago but apparently kids trick or treat longer here than they did where I grew up, and they arenít obnoxious about it so I went with it. Anyway, we thought it would be really fun to do a doggie Halloween this year. A really fun costume and a little family party with doggie activities and treats. But it turns out we have a conflict for Halloween anyway. Maybe weíll try to do it a few days early so we can take some fun pictures!

I always love the Molly and Max cards! Yes, I think she tolerates the feeling of her Halloween dress, and it prevents the ghost costume from lying on her.

Here are three showing that there was still snow on our deck this morning. (I love windblown photos of Shama!) Temperatures finally rose to the high 50s today, so the snow did melt. And here are two pictures of the final ghost costume (with front cut out to allow for walking ...) She did not manage to hold the pail, BTW. (I have a goal for Halloween 2021!)
