Sally, I had to get a bit imaginative. I crocheted 2 hats for my Granddaughters in the2 weeks before Halloween” 1 Olaf and 1 Elsa. So my costume ideas for my dogs went out the window. When I saw the picture of Daryl twisted around on his back with all those teeth showing and those green looking eyes, I knew I had to share him for Halloween on here. The bedspread joke is just a small sample of the pathetic, silly humor my family puts up with daily. Hey, Lucy has her belly shaved form her spay surgery, she could have gone as a toupe. 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.

Too late for the contest but I convinced Hank to wear Maggie’s princess costume and I think he pulls it off rather well. Besides he needed to get in touch with his feminine sideclownHank-Halloween-trim.jpgImage Enlarger
