Just because we don't know enough people to have a Halloween party doesn't mean we* aren't dressing up these dogs!

I modified Betty's Thanksgiving Pilgrim costume to a more literary character.  Like Hester Prynne in Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, Bester Prynne has been ordered to wear her shame on her chest.  Unlike Hester, Bester is not that kind of bad girl.  Bester's letter is "B" for the Sin of Barking. Also considered were J for Jumping and W for Whining.

Those little "shoe" buckles just kill me!

Delia's jester collar is something I picked up a few years ago from a thrift store.  She's not nearly such a good sport about costumes as her sister, and all the pictures show it.

"Phooey on your dumb costume!"  In the rest of the photos she's making her when-did-you-start-hating-me-mama-because-I-still-love-you-so-much face.  Ouch. She wore it all of 3 minutes.  Sigh.

*And by "we" I mean, "I".  I do believe that Eric does approve of the dog costumes or has accepted the inevitable.

    1. I think Delia may have entered a fun deficit, but has since moved back into the fun credit area.
