Im sure this topic has been brought up before, but it's my first Halloween with a Tripawd! I know I'm a couple months early, but it's never to early to start planning. I really want to make Domino very unique for Halloween. I've thought of the obvious ones... a tripod, a tricycle, a pirate... But does anyone have anymore suggestions? Thanks so much!

Halloween / costumes was mine and Shelby's thing so I probably won't do much w/Jasper (especially since she can go as "Batman")

 

But I do love the idea of Domino as a pirate w/a bird on his shoulder! 🙂 

Shelby Lynne; Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. Proud member of the April Angels of 2014.

October 15, 2000 to April 8, 2014

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Haha, which is funny, because the family consensus seems to be a pirate with a hook hand lol. I've found some very cute pirate costumes and it'd be fairly easy to fix a hook to some elastic. So who knows!

I was most definately going to give Ty a peg leg. Captain Hook maybe. Guess that would be the pirate theme.the tricycle sounds cute though can you make him a tripod, you know like for a camera? ! Lori and Ty

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 5 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 15 and 1/2, Lucy, a Corgi who is 7, 2 minis, 2 horses, and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she was at least 16. She is going strong although she is now completely blind. She is now close to 20 and her hobbies are eating and sleeping in front of her personal heater.

My mom had to custom make the tail, but it is so worth it, we used this costume for the SPCA 3K Petwalk and Costume Contest. We wont 3rd place which is fitting for my tripawd girl. I wanted a costume that would be happy! I felt that the tripod (camera stand) costume and pirate poked fun at her. But the mermaid tail brought SO MANY SMILES! We got such great feedback for our costumes! Have fun everyone!

I did indeed see Hank in Maggie's blog.....grinned ear to ear then...and still am now! Those eyes....that look....the costume just wouldn't be nearly as effective on any other dog!!

And the Mermaid....creative....incredibly creative! She was robbed of first place last year! Robbed!!!!

Thanks for sharing!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!
