Nimrod

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

Nimrod is a silly cat, her tail will go across her back & if you pet it, it actually springs back like a meerkat...when excited she bounces around like a little monkey, but she loves to cuddle so I made her this SOCK MONKEY costume all by hand, no sewing machines or patterns.

Jack

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

Meet Jack.  He goes by many names but handsome seems to fit him the best.  He looks pretty good for an 11 year old.  Jack is definitely the "Hot Dog" in our house!

Trouble

Meet Trouble.  Yes, she has that name for a reason.  Though she's 10 years old, Trouble acts like a kitten running around the house.  Since she like to dart around my bed, I figured a race car would be the purrect costume for her!

Fefi

Fefi is a little rascal Farmer! He loves to chase squirells and eat tortilla chips. He is super friendly and sweet with kids. He was found roaming around my old neighborhood, he had no chip and since we instantly clicked he became part of our little family right away.

Yee Haa!!!!!!

Lola

Meet Lola. She is a 2 1/2 year old Boxer. She is so spoiled. She loves dressing up & taking pictures. This fall picture was taken last as a surprise for her daddy. This is one of our favorite pictures of her because her coat looks so pretty with the fall colors. 

 

Echo

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

This is Echo, our Boston Terrier, dressed as a Chia Pet! Echo is well known for her seasonal costumes and loved by many. She is the sweetest little girl. Echo began dressing up in homemade costumes in 2006. Her costume here is made of floral foliage on chicken wire. Underneath it is lined with felt for her comfort. The pants are made out of terra cotta colored fabric. 

 

Rudger

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

My inspiration for the costume was the champion Triple Crown winning racehorse, American Pharoah. We live in horse country, and naturally, watching American Pharoah capture the crown was a very exciting event. Rudger is a mixed breed elderly hound who was rescued. He has had a late start in life on developing his social skills. He has always been very friendly, but painstakingly shy. He has blossomed into a super star. My hope for entering Rudger in your contest is so that he might serve as an ambassador for elderly dogs who need good homes. I wish that people would more often choose an older dog over a cute little puppy. Just because they are older doesn't mean that they don't have value. He has enriched my life immeasurably. He is loyal, kind, sweet, and smart. Aged dogs are awesome, and I want the world to know it! #TeamRudger!
 

P.S. He isn't sad looking from the costume! He is quite happy and proud of himself. He just has those big sad hound eyes!

Oreo

He is a sailor cause he made it through the  storm!! I adopted him from a shelter, he was only 7 lbs his ears and tail matted onto his body. But now he is 15lbs healthy and happy.

Meet Tommy Tucker!  He a 15 year old cat.  Tommy Tucker is the nice the sweetest pirate you'll ever meet!

Kitty

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

Kitty is our 8 year old "baby" boy and so laid back and loves to play with the birds outside. We figured Tinkerbell was the way to go for this laid back cat and as you can see by his tongue hanging out, he loves to prance around in these wings. This is the 2nd year he's had them and no other costume will do.

Peeka & BooBoo

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

Peeka is the brindle and BooBoo is the fawn.

 

They love riding in their two seat stroller going to Halloween contests. Hope you enjoy the pic's and Happy Halloween. My wife and her parents were natives of Prospect Heights and lived there for 55 years until we moved to Harvard IL.

Gracie & Goose

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

They are brother and sister Old English Sheepdog puppies. They love to wrestle and cuddle! Micky and Minnies nose’s is what inspired me.

Ella & Eve

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

Ella and Eve r the perfect duo which is why i think we went with a superhero theme. Ella the golden is a huge cuddler and Eve the doodle is a complete clown. They each cheer us up in their own special ways and are our super heroes. They were great sports for the pic and all they ever ask for is a treat and a good belly rub;)

Gracie

All entries must be received to us by 5 PM October 28th, 2015

This is Gracie.  She was rescued from a puppy mill in southern Illinois, where she spent the first five months of her life in a cage. The cage was so small she couldn't sit up or stand.  When my wife Kirstin saw Gracie for the first time, she could not use her back legs.  It didn't take long for her to regain the use of them, and now she's quite the runner and jumper.  

 

The inspiration for the sailor is from me being in the US Coast Guard Reserves (it's a WW2 uniform).  Whenever I have to travel for my drill weekends (4 to 5 days), she stares at the front door waiting for me to come home, and sleeps on my pillow.  She's a lil fireball.  Always getting into mischief, but makes us laugh every day.
