halloween pupdate





About a month or so ago, I got really excited about the prospect of dressing Calvin up for Halloween. You see, I'm not really "that" kind of person, but after six years with Seamus, who is so big and such a strange size that no doggie outfits could or would ever fit him, the chance to get Calvin a costume was too good to pass up. So off to Amazon I went, ordering an adorable skeleton outfit for my pup. I got a size medium, seeing as he is just over six months old and surely that would be large enough.

Well. When I tried to put his costume on yesterday, I realized it was too small. And not just a-little-tight-around-the-middle small. Not just I-need-to-unbutton-my-pants-after-dinner small. No, this costume most definitely did not fit, not even a little. Even though I could only get it around his head and even though he didn't like the hood, I still managed to get a few photos. I was disappointed, but got over it quickly enough. Calvin, I'm afraid, has been scarred for life. Oh, well. Maybe we'll try again next Halloween.
