It's pretty bad when the dog steals the show on Halloween night. And it is also pretty bad when you are scrambling to make costumes for your children at 5:30 p.m. Halloween night, and your dog has had her costume for weeks.
Bubba was a Red LEGO with a little help from a moving box, solo cups and a can of red spray paint. Hannah was Sacagewea with a little help from the fabric stash, my brown belt and some make-up. And Chloe stole the show as Pooch-a-Hontas, complete with tomahawk and wig.
Don't get me wrong, I am NOT the "buy a costume for the dog" type. Nor do I baby my dog or carry her around in a bag or basket. She is a dog. A pet. Hannah bought her the costume at Petco for $5.00.
