In the pumpkin patch
But when I was innocently walking down a main aisle of Target on a quest for toilet paper and pet costumes are displayed on an end cap *on sale*, I kind of lost control of the situation and decided I needed matching costumes for the pair of beagles.
The costumes were put to good use. I had the beagles on their tie-outs in the yard as I handed out candy to our trick-or-treaters last Sunday. They were great yard decorations and the kids loved them. The beagles, especially Marvin, loved the whole idea as well because of the extra attention and petting they got. There was only a momentary disruption when Marvin realized Diesel looked like a plush toy and started gnawing on his costume, causing me to separate them for a bit.
Since I had taken these photos for the blog, I dropped a copy off at a local pet store holding a photo costume contest. The chance to win a $75 gift certificate was incentive enough to enter. When I looked at the previously entered photos I realized that Diesel and Marvin were Pumpkins Number 4 and 5. Okay, perhaps not the most original costume around but I do have a matching pair. We'll see what happens.
Boo to you today!
