I Love a Parade! Especially a Doggy Parade

Hi! Happy Halloween to all my friends here! Welcome to the neighborhood annual Halloween Doggy Parade.

Mo was the star! He is Captain Jack Sparrow, from Pirates of the Caribbean.

Mo greeted all his little friends then decided to lead the way. Unfortunately for The Plan, Mo led everyone out to his favorite bench, instead of around the block and down the street.

He was hilarious. He got everyone out there then presided over the festivities from his bench.

After awhile he got a little sleepy!

Later we did stroll around a bit. It was so funny and so fun.

I wish the sun had not been so bright and glaring. My pictures didn't come out too great. Some costumes were wonderful. My neighbor's  shy little chug was exceptional---big real feather Victoria's Secret angel wings...in black! Plus little ankle bracelets, all lace and feathers, and a sign saying she had been a rescue dog.

Mo's costume needed a LOT of  alterations, LOL. I said I'm afraid Mo needs a chubette or husky size. I added about 5" to the neck, and shortened the pants almost 2" The package [size Large] said sized for a Boxer or medium to large sized dog! Huh. Maybe a Boxer puppy.

We practiced all last week to learn to wear the costume. The fake arms were distracting , as was the hat. But Mo will do anything for a treat!

"Noooo! Don' wanna, mommy!"

"I'm too tired!"

My friends went with us. This is their back steps. I love the driftwood pumpkins and mums in stoneware crocks.

And my front door....

Hope you get treats tonight! No tricks.

PS Speaking of tricks, Mo's walker has taught him a new trick; ''Touchdown!''  Mo sits up and throws his arms in the air, like a ref saying Touchdown.
 Do you dress up your dogs or cats? Do you teach them tricks?  Always makes me laugh..
