With Halloween just around the corner – Lennox has been asking if our pup Daisy Mae can go Trick or Treating with us. We are unsure how she will act – so we may bring her out for a block and then walk her back home – we will see! But either way, we all know she can’t have normal Halloween treats so when we were doing our weekly grocery shopping last week at Kroger, we picked up some new Halloween treats for Daisy!
We picked out three different types. Daisy is not picky when it comes to treats – she’ll eat pretty much anything, but Milk Bone has always been one of her favorites. We also picked up some Canine Carry-Outs (BACON!) and Milo’s Kitchen to try out.
I think she LOVED the Milo’s Kitchen Grilled Burger Bites since she ate it in about 1 second flat! Can you see her patiently (or impatiently) waiting for a treat?While at Kroger, we also saw an advertisement for a Halloween themed dog site that they have available. We went to the site (http://krogertrickortreatem.com) and checked out what it was all about. Lennox was able to take a fun little quiz about her dog, which resulted in a personality test saying that Daisy is a Trickster. Pretty much sums her up 😉
We were also able to upload Daisy’s Halloween costume picture, and make a fun printable frame. Lennox has printed out the picture and put it in her room! She just loves it.
Lastly, the site also had some great coupons to use next time we are picking up dog treats!
Before we had Lennox, we used to bring her to a Halloween dog costume contest at her Doggy Daycare each October or even Barktoberfest at the local dog park. She was lucky enough to win a few times too! Her winning costumes were Scooby Doo and Underdog! Both costumes were DIY style and so much fun!
To make a quick Scooby Doo costume – you just need to find a brown T-shirt, black craft foam to make spots, orange felt for a color and black and yellow craft foam to make a SD tag!
To make an Underdog Dog Costume, I used a longsleeve red adult size shirt, white felt to make a U and glue it on to the dogs chest (front of shirt). I then made a blue cape and tied it to her collar! Easy enough!
Since she’s a big dog, we have a hard time finding costumes that fit her. This year, we searched around and were able to find a costume that fit and that Lennox loved! She thought daisy looked so silly as a Witch!
Do you dress up your pets for Halloween? What is your favorite dog costume? What are your dogs favorite treats?
