Registered Tripawds Members can vote by clicking the stars next to each costume contest post to rank that photo. Click the star relating to the number of votes you want to give each photo. (Click the first star to give a photo one vote, the third star for three votes, etc.)

Each user may only rank each post once.

You cannot vote for your own post/photo.

Submit as many photos as you like, but only add one per post so members can vote for each photo.

Who Wins? Each star rating is added to the current star total for that post. The post rating score displayed is the star sum divided by the number of votes.

The one photo/post in the forum topic that gets the highest star rating will win the grand prize: a Custom Tripawds Goodie Basket filled with hand-picked items from Wyatt Ray and his pack. In the event of a tie, Wyatt will pick one winner at random.

Post costume photos and vote for favorites here!

OMG …. this is awesome!!!! I’ll dig up some old photos of Miss Shelby … In fact … here is one! (french maid 2011)

Image Enlarger

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

ALISON!!! PENNY!!! OMD!!!!

Shelby as a Flapper? Priceless!! Stylin’ her stilettos like a little fashion Diva…and she is!!
Don’t think she’s quite as happy as a French Maid….afterall,she IS a Princess! She has “her people” do her maid work!

PENNY! Your time of year indeed! BLINK!!!! That look!! The thought bubble…cannot even imagine what is going on in that head! Then again, there may be a thought bubble st all.Blink looks like he’s just a tad stoned!! That face…the expression..priceless!

And, od course, our”Holy One” is just delightful as a “man of the cloth”.

And then we n have sweet Maggie looking so prim and proper in her cheering outfit! This is such a beautiful pocture of her. The way her ears frame her face..so pretty.

You have an incredible creative mind…and quite a sewing talent!!!
