Let’s celebrate our costumed pets this Halloween. Send us a photo of your pet dressed in whatever getup you saw fit and we’ll post them here for all to see and admire.
Nakita (Little Bo Peep) and Mojo (her sheep) from Buxton looking pretty fantastic. Maryrose Alvarado-Therrien photo.
Bzzzzz. Oh that's just Baxter the Bee from Portland. Rachel Withers sent this photo in.
This is 7 month old Argos dressed as a chia pet. Argos and his family live on Highland Lake in Windham where Argos loves swimming after ducks (to no avail). Christi Holmes, who sent us this photos, said she gave him lots of hot dogs while she was designing the costume, so he doesn't mind wearing it.
This is Rina from San Diego giving a fine nod to "Tails of Mother Goose." Judy Fridono was kind enough to share the photo.
This is Freddie dressed up as RuPaul. Freddie lives in Portland with Stephanie Daggett, who shared this photo. "He puts up with my crazy ideas and costumes and is such a good boy!"
This is Piper the lobster from Portland. Christina Gillies shared this photo with us.
Meet Simon the Spider Dog. He is from Brunswick, Maine. Owner Darcey Leighton says he looks just like a crawling spider when he walks in this costume. Photo courtesy Darcey Leighton
Never fear, Batman and Robin are here. This Atticus (Batman) and Radley (Robin). Karen Reisler and David Ballon of NYC gave us permission to share this photo. You can check out some of their Maine adventures in a recent post about dog-friendly Inn By The Sea on The Maine Wag.
Many of us have done it. Maybe we started small by tying a bandana around a dog’s collar. Maybe that bandana quickly grew into a T-shirt. Maybe we just happened to see a dog-shaped Sherlock Holmes costume hanging on the rack when we accidentally went shopping for dog costumes. It happens.
Let’s celebrate our costumed pets this Halloween. Send us a photo (see the form below) and we’ll add it to the gallery!
Note: Our Halloween contest for one lucky dog has come to a close. Little Bo Peep and her lost sheep (aka Nakita and Mojo) won a HappyMe collar and leash AND a short profile on The Maine Wag, thanks to Deb Collins, HappyME owner and author of The Maine Wag here on mainetoday.com. Congrats!
