Happy Holly-ween (Part Two)!

Over the weekend, Holly and I decided to try our luck once more with our Fabulous Fifties Girl costumes, this time at Petco's "Most Boo-tiful Dog" Halloween party.

This contest was a much smaller scale than last weekend's, and thus allowed for extra fun perks such as pup-contestants getting the opportunity to pose on a small stage and have their photo taken (each pet parent was e-mailed a copy of their photo after!), and every entrant getting a prize of treats and a participation certificate.

Just because the pool was smaller did not mean the competition was not stiff. Holly and I signed in early so we were second to go, and had the opportunity to see the creativity that went into many of the costumes. We ended up coming in third (yay!), happily giving deserved credit to the second place winner (who dressed as "Sharknado" with her owner), and the grand prize champion (who was a gorgeous mermaid complete with foot long sequined tail and blonde wig!). Our third prize earned us a ribbon, doggie treats, and a tee from the contest's sponsor, Nature's Variety.

Holly thinks her ribbon and tee shirt are "boo-tiful" enough to eat!
After our win, we ventured across the street to Teavana so Holly's Godmother, who had joined us, could pick up a celebratory tea. As we waited outside (as is customary when we visit food establishments), an employee came over to say the store is in fact dog friendly, and we were more than welcome inside! Holly loved all the attention from the staff and patrons as well as the delicious tea smells, and I loved discovering a new spot I could hang with my pup now that the days are getting cooler.

Do you and your pup have any Halloween plans? What has been your favorite puppy & me costume?

Until Next Time, Darlings!
