Halloween is fast approaching. Last year, after Halloween was over Mom and I went to TJMaxx and they happened to be clearancing out all of their Halloween costumes for dogs. I was beyond excited. So I picked up a pig costume for Hank and another costume for Boomer though I can’t remember for the life of me what it was.
When we got to the checkout, the lady said that the pig costume was on clearance but not the other costume. Because you know, dogs wear costumes all the time for like, no reason. Whatever, crazy lady.
So, I bought the pig costume only and figured I would deal with Boomers costume this year. Anyway, I put the pig costume on Hank to try it out recently and let’s be honest, he hated it.
I would show you a picture of him in the costume but he would probably bite me. The hate is real. So I kept asking the dogs what kind of costumes do you want? Just give me an idea. Anything? But they just kept staring outside at our pets.
I tried on some of their old costumes and they didn’t mind them but they didn’t get excited. They just kept looking out the door and gazing off into the front lawn. I was at a loss. And then Charles P Cock came up to the door.
And it occurred to me that the answer was right in front of me. They want to be one of the guys!
The dogs love their costumes. (MacGyver might be a hard sell.) We’re all gonna be peacocks this year. Every damn one of us, even the woodpecker.
Happy Friday y’all!
