So as you may or may not know, Halloween is next week. Now while personally I always try to come up with a homemade costume, sometimes the reality is there just aren’t enough hours in the day. So if you’re strapped for time, but still want your pup to look their best this Halloween, have no fear! I’ve rounded up 10 of my favorite store bought costumes to make dressing up your dog a cinch this year!
5. Miss Piggy
7. Scuba Diver
10. Pink Monster
So which one is your favorite?
With Halloween just around the corner I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my VERY FIRST Halloween with my family!
Trooper dressed up as a Pony (complete with western rider and saddle on his back) and I dressed up as a cute little Dinosaur.
Mom said it would of been more appropriate if I had dressed as a T-Rex (on account of my short stubby arms)…..I’m laughing real hard mom, real hard!
Apparently I missed the memo that Dinosaurs are supposed to be bigger and badder that ponies though, because Trooper seemed to keep trying to get a taste of Dinosaur meat.
You can check out some more photos from my very first Halloween with Trooper on the Painting Pony Blog.
What is your dog going to be this year for Halloween?
This time I was a seasoned pro on the school bus ride over to the grounds. I made sure to assure all the other dogs on the bus that we weren’t in fact headed for school (because who goes to school on a Sunday?).
My first stop on the grounds…..lunch! And with lots of choices to choose from I begged mom to get the steak sandwich wrap….mmmm…..steak.
Next I hit up the shopping tents – in which all the venders commented on how I was the best dressed dog there! (I do try my best)
Then it was time for the main event….Show Jumping! I spent the afternoon watching as Jennie Brannigan and her horse, Cambalda, took home the Gold!
By the end of the day I was exhausted from “riding every stride” with the competitors as I cheered them on!
Good news is I have an entire year to rest up for next year’s event!
It’s that time of year when the sun sets earlier, the leaves change a pretty color, and you have to bundle up a little more on the farm! Here’s a fun little collection of photos from my recent fall fun around the farm.
Don’t you just want to jump in a great big pile of leaves and sip hot chocolate now? (well in my case just burrow under my favorite warm blanket!)

These days, everywhere you turn things are able to be personalized and customized. And hey, who am I to complain when personalization is this fun!
My new friends over at Tags for Tails helped me create a custom ID tag for my collar.
I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to really showcase my namesake on this fun bullet shaped tag. Seriously, it had my name written all over it!
My tag from Tags for Tails also came stamped with my phone number on the back – should I ever need to contact my mom or dad in the case of an emergency.
Tags for Tails also has tons and tons of other fun designs in their shop, like these:
So many fun shapes I can hardly choose a favorite.
My “Ammo” tag totally suits me though. Now all the ladies can see what a tough guy I am.
Well, a tough guy with an inside made of gooey lovable puppiness!
You can fetch your dog their own personalized ID tag from Tags for Tails. And as a bonus you can use code t4tsave5now to save 5% off your next order!
And now for the best part….

You can fetch these fun prints and more at Pretty Fluffy.
Trooper and I have always been the kind of friends that love to wrestle. So for today’s throwback thursday I dug up this fun video of Trooper and I wrestling (in our patent wiggly way) back in 2011.
But don’t let our quiet little wrestling matches fool you…..we also thoroughly enjoy a game of chase!
How does your dog like to play?
Over the weekend mom and dad took me to pick out my Halloweenie pumpkins.
And oh boy where there pumpkins galore to choose from!
But not to worry, this nose is very experienced at picking out the very best carving pumpkins!
Just look at these beauties I sniffed out! I can’t wait to get to carving them, all I have to do is decide what to carve. Any suggestions?
And if you didn’t know, I’m also pretty awesome at carving pumpkins too, just like these sweet pumpkins from a few years back.
The end result landed a photo of me on MarthaStewart.com – pretty exciting!
The fact is though, mom took so many fun photos of Trooper and I enjoying our new Martha Stewart products – that we had to share all the others that didn’t make the cut!
Especially since they are the PERFECT thing to put everyone in the Halloweenie mood!
Honestly, what’s more Halloweenie than a dachshund dressed as a pumpkin?
Well perhaps a dachshund dressed as a pumpkin in a pile of hay!
Trooper totally had his eye on the Martha Stewart toys, and I bet he was thinking he’d get to take them home with him after our little photoshoot.
Sorry Trooper, I’ll share my Halloweenie collar with you, but these toys are mine….all mine!
What sort of things are you doing this fall to get into the Halloweenie mood?
Disclosure: I received products from Martha Stewart to photograph for their website, but decided to share the fun photos on my blog as well! All opinions are my own.

My new friends over at the Paw Street Barkery thought my tummy was looking a little hungry (isn’t is always) so they kindly sent me over some sweet treats from their organic dog treat line.
Of course when my pal Trooper caught wind of the fact that there were some yummy treats at my house – he jumped at the chance to help me taste test all of them – how thoughtful.
Paw Street Barkery sent over three yummy flavors for me to try. Mom’s favorite part about them was the limited ingredients, which are perfect for even the most sensitive of tummies.
Peanut Butter Pooch
All that talk about peanut butter, sweet potato, and chicken had Trooper and I drooling!
The good thing about reviewing cookies is that there’s lots of taste testing required.
Both Trooper and I agree, Paw Street Barkery makes a mean cookie….and we’re more than happy to vacuum up any and all crumbs should our services be needed to taste test again.
You can fetch these yummy treats and more from the Paw Street Barkery!
And now for the best part….
