Bah Humbug- I'm Scrooge When It Comes To Halloween!
I will admit I saw this great post from our Friends at Dog Milk
In fact, you should read the blog- it's adorable, all these petite little dogs in petite little costumes. They look endearing enough- a couple of the pooches even have smiles on their faces.
I'm going out on a limb here and just want to say...
"I have an undeniable problem with Halloween costumes for dogs and cats."
Halloween just isn't my cup of cider. I can't handle the excitement and consequently either can my dogs! Yes, I hear you... You probably want to fly off this blog post quicker than a witch hunter seeking vengeance . How can anyone even say that about pets and Halloween? I've heard every complaint and criticism under the dark, spooky moon and back, including but certainly not limited to these: "But, they look so adorable!" "You're a major tedious, Fuddy Duddy!" "Get over yourself and relax about it!"
Now, don't get me wrong, I heart a pup in a cute scarf --- I even have a sweet ribbon collar I put on my girls for the big day. There's just something about dressing a pet up in a large scale, all encompassing, incredibly uncomfortable outfit that really disturbs me. Do you honestly think your dog enjoys being dressed up and confined in an outfit that pinches and pulls on parts not intended to be pinched and pulled? Like I mentioned above; I need to get over it. Get a life. To each his own. Retail stores are making a killing. So I know it's good for the economy. In fact, $330 MILLION
dollars were spent on costumes for pets last year. Yes, I said million. It's only one day night. Whatever... The taco costume is kinda cute, but I prefer Aidan in his handsome necklace! I'm sure I have a minority viewpoint on the topic of Halloween costumes and pets. What do you think? Do you dress your pet up for Halloween? I would love to hear a "yes" or "no" in the comments below. I'm sure I'm not the only: Bah Humbug- I'm Scruge When It Comes to Halloween
