Over the weekend, I went to Petco for their annual Halloween Costume Contest! Jess tries to get me out as much as she can and this was a perfect opportunity. Our Petco isn’t in a big city like most so we usually don’t have a big turnout for events like this. Fortunately, a couple other doggies showed up for the event and there were enough of us to place 1st, 2nd & 3rd!
Now, on to the costumes, if you follow us on Instagram you can probably guess what mine was. I went dressed as an Old Western Sheriff! I had Jess as my Deputy and Amanda as my PRISONER!
Can you guess what happened when the first person saw me? They thought I was adorable and loved my outfit! There were the typical “awws” and “too cute” expressions. This is before I even got in the store! And of course, it continued once I was in the store.
My deputy, prisoner and I, hung around while we waited for the other doggies to show up for the contest and once they did, we all got acquainted while the judges got ready. The doggies names were Buttercup and Wendy. Buttercup and her human were both dressed as Angels and Wendy had a last minute costume as a character from the movie Frozen.
We then paraded through the store in our costumes for all the customers to see. When we got back over to the area from were we began, it was time for the judging to begin!
We thought Buttercup and her human had a great costume and we weren’t sure who was going to win! *Drum roll* In third place we have… Wendy! *Applause* And, our second place winner is………Buttercup!! *Applause* Alright, and our grand prize winner is Mini!! *Applause*
After the awards were handed out, I practice my tricks and while I did, there were people stopping and saying how cute I was. There were so many things to sniff and listen to, I didn’t do my tricks too well, everyone still loved them though! I think their favorites were “bang” (which I only did part way ;) ) and “Beg”.
After it was all over, I think the best part was making all the people laugh and smile.
I am also enjoying the prizes I won :D I got a handkerchief, a small bag of moist treats, a small bag of dry treats and a gift card! And with the gift card, I got a new glass bowl for me! I also love the 1st place ribbon that I get to add to my collection!
We had an absolute blast!
