This isn't actually an entry in the contest, but since I recently managed to get all of my old photos downloaded to the laptop, I couldn't resist showing this picture of Gus. It was taken on Halloween 2007 when he was masquerading as Billy Bob.

Murphy is a five year old Lab/Chessie cross. He was hit by a car on 10/29/12 and became a Tripawd on 11/24/12. On 2/5/13, he had a total hip replacement on his remaining back leg. He has absolutely no idea that he has only three legs!

UPDATE: Murphy lived his life to the fullest, right up until an aggressive bone lesion took him across the Rainbow Bridge on April 9, 2015 and he gained his membership in the April Angels. Run free, my love. You deserve it!

We called in a favor and Grandma made Sebastian a custom pirate costume (we had to do it at least once).  It's pretty grainy but that's because there was a lot of bribery, angry outlashes and quick snapping of the camera involved.

I know I'm breaking the rules by posting more than one picture, but trying to get Milo to sit still with his hood on was virtually impossible!! On that note, I give you Count Dracula and Frankenstein. Happy Halloween!!

Alright here's Domino's Halloween costume! Pro Surfer turned shark bait 🙂 His big brother is a shark, but his costume isn't quite finished yet. I'll post a couple pics of Domino because I can't pick just one lol.

 

(I apologize if anyone see's or takes this as being in bad taste, it is most definiely 100% not intended that way. So if anyone feels offended I apologize in advance)

Cassie and Domino

Domino had his left front leg amputate on May 13th 2014 after being hit by a car. He's now living a happy healthy life on three legs :)

Alright here's Domino's brother Finn, the scary great white shark!!! They don't make shark costumes big enough to fit him, so we had to get creative!
