It’s Almost Time for Trick-or-Treating! Is Your Pup Prepared?

Our Halloween
Boo-tique
is filled with costumes to suit all canine personalities! Your
four-legged friend could be a golfer, monkey, flapper, or even a tootsie roll,
to name a few. Halloween is just over a month away, and some styles are selling
fast, so act fast for the best selection. Costumes aren’t all we have in our boo-tique,
we also carry funny and festive toys, adorable accessories, and darling
Halloween dresses!

Halloween Bou-tique
The Halloween Treats Dog Dress was designed
specially for those furry fashionistas who are always looking fabulous! Featuring
an extra fluffy ruffled double layered underskirt, decorative trim and polka
dot ribbon details, it’s a sure head-turner. The equally adorable, festive and
feminine Ribbon Pumpkin Dog Dress is
also a great choice for furry fashionistas with a striped ruffled skirt,
puffed sleeves, embroidered pumpkins and ribbon details. Both are cute costume alternatives!

For the
male pups, or females that don’t want to wear a dress, we have the Jolly Roger Dog Sweater with a skull
and cross bones on the back, a trendy choice that can be worn again when
Halloween is over! The Halloween Argyle
Dog Bowtie
is also a cute choice for dapper doggies. And probably the
easiest, fun way to let your pup get dressed up for the holiday would be with our
Candy Corn and Dots or Bats Dog Bandanas, both reversible!

Pupperazzi: The Doggie Gaga Project

Screen shot 2010-03-24 at 4.07.44 PM 

Puh-Puh-Puh Pupper Face 

Armed with a Polaroid camera, plenty of dog treats, miniaturized Lady Gaga costumes and a healthy dose of humor, San Francisco bay-area photographer Jesse Freidin has gone where no photographer has gone before and become an overnight internet sensation with his Doggie Gaga Project.

Freidin and a small team of stylists created and photographed miniaturized Lady Gaga-esque ensembles on a host of pooches – including a Boston Terrier, a Mexican hairless, a Shiba Inu and two Pit Bulls. The resulting collection is nothing short of ridonkulous. 

While some might see a whole lotta wrong with these photos –  Friedin states in his press release that "no animals were harmed during the photo shoot ….or even irritated."  Despite being a big Lady Gaga fan, something tells me that my dog Zazou would not be down with Gaga's infamous lacy red VMA ensemble …though he might be willing to chill with the hat on for a spell.

Would your dog sit still for something like this?

Flower dog costume

Muttropolis Caterpillar Dog Costume

How completely REE-diculous is this!? Gerber Daisies have always been a favorite of mine, but on this delightfully goofy dog, 'Chewy,' it looks more like a Goober Daisy.

Looking for creative costume ideas for your pets or two legged goblins this Halloween? Why not dress your dog as this darling Gerber Daisy and your kids and/or other dogs as little bugs or in this case, a caterpillar.

This Flower Dog Costume is made from soft, warm fleece and designed a little looser for a more comfortable fit and easy movement. The separate petal head piece has an adjustable Velcro closure for a perfect fit. The Caterpillar Dog Costume features adjustable velcro closures, a comfy padded back and full coverage for optimal Spooky-ness!

Starting at $36, you can find the Caterpillar Dog Costume and Flower Dog Costume at Muttropolis.com.
