Okay, until I figure out how the heck to “clear my cahces”, please add five stars to the veteran of many Holloween costumes BOSCH ,the CHUNKY PUMPKIN….. SNICKERS the TIGER..and she is a really pretty tiger….JAZZ the cutest LADY BUG ever (clearly she is NOT enjoying this)……..ADDY, the po’d CAT….ADDY getting eaten by a spider…..ADDY….as Alison would say..”BAT SH*T CRAZY”!!

Karma, you really need to keep your medicine cabinet under lock and key. I’m pretty sure Addy is on some drugs that you don’t buy “over the counter”! THOSE EYES!!!!way-cool

FIVE STARS FOR ALL!!! Thanks for the smiles!!!

Sally,
I always look forward to your posts! You make us all feel good and you crack me up.

You might be on to something regarding Addy and the medicine cabinet. Lately, she has definitely been bat crazy. I’m going to have to hit the med cabinet just to deal with her.
My favorite Miss Hannah will always be the pouting Minnie Mouse. ❤️

Sally,

Myrtle is hysterical, I love that outfit and her expression is priceless. Okay here is Blink in her Headless Horseman outfit. I again bought it at Petsmart for 50% off but I did have to separate the head piece from the rest of it because it wasn’t long enough. And notice my  pumpkin (with the hatchet in the head) eyes and mouth are dog bones, they are very abundant around here. This really is fun!!

I had to share the present day Halloween picture…   

He’s not Franklin.. but he also suits the clown costume…   I need to expand my costume supply….

Franklin, he was the Happiest Dog on Three Legs! Diagnosed 09/26/2012 with Osteosarcoma, amputated 12/4/2012.  Had a wonderful 5 1/2 months painfree until he ran for the Bridge on 5/15/2013.  Always in my heart, and always a guardian angel of my pack...   You can follow his Tripawd Adventures, before and after, in my blog, Frank'n'Farter!
