Happy Howl-O-Ween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Earlier this afternoon, the boy, Hazel and I headed to the park for the inaugural Howl-O-Ween Pooch Parade & Pet Expo, benefiting Pet Stop Rescue. When I heard about it, I knew I had to take Hazel out for a day of Halloween fun. Dogs can dress up, too! Late last night, I ran out to my local PetSmart to find a costume and I picked up a sweet little Cinderella dress for just 5 bucks in the clearance section. See, it pays to procrastinate sometimes!

Anyway, Hazel looked adorable, of course, if I do say so myself. She wasn't so happy about the costume this morning, she had her sad face on, but once we got to the park she lit up and started running around, showing off and saying hi to everybody-- dogs and people alike. We actually saw another Cinderella prancing around, but Hazel was cutest, for sure. (I'm a mom! I'm allowed to be biased.)

We ended up not actually "marching" in the parade-- the boy's back was really bothering him today and he needed to go into work still-- but we walked around the park for a little while and after the boy left, Hazel and I stayed to watch the parade-goers return. It was a fun time and just like with little kids on Halloween, Hazel ate tons of treats! In fact, as I type this she is passed out on the floor, in a treat-coma. What a life, huh?

Hope your Halloween is just as good!

Hazel looks so happy :)

We did last minute shopping too for a costume for Bodhi... it's really tough to find costumes for big dogs, though, and we ended up getting a sports jersey for him.

She's so cute and she always looks so happy! My dog Brodie was a bumble bee but I couldn't get him to look as happy as Hazel!
