Most of my pet costume photos come from other people. That’s because my own attempts are dismal. Once in a while someone gets inspired and we end up with a few good ones. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Drama 45 | Carl Sagan, Birthday Boy
Hey Carl! Come over here! Let’s do an 8th Birthday photo shoot! We don’t know the exact day, but you were born around Halloween.
Okay, we can wait a couple minutes. I’ll get the camera set up.
Very cute, but I had something fancier in mind. I do appreciate that you picked out a nice orange t-shirt to match the pumpkins.
Ha ha, nice. But everyone has already seen that costume. Don’t you have something else?
Ah, yes. The hat I brought you from Venice. You make a very cute gondolier!
And here’s the sombrero I brought you from Zihuatanejo, Mexico! That is a great color on you, Carl.
Where did you find that lei from Hawaii? I don’t think that belongs to you. You’re right, though. It’s way too small for Dobby.
Now we’re talking! Sheriff Carl Sagan and his horse. Wait a minute, is that Capycoppy?
Taking your dog for a walk down to the mailbox? Looks like you dodged the rain.
The best costume of all is actually being a cute guinea pig, isn’t it Carl? Those friends of yours certainly have better manners than Stevie Ray and Fred!
That’s right, Carl. You are INNOCENT! Happy Birthday!
[Carl absolutely LOVED the attention, but not all guinea pigs tolerate costumes. I also had an experienced volunteer on hand for the wrangling. Use good judgment if you decide to dress up your pet. Make sure it is fun for everyone involved.]
Daily Drama 44 | Happy Halloween!
Something funny is happening around here. I think the guinea pigs are getting bigger!
This is me, Dobby, in my Halloween costume from a few years ago, I think it was 2011. It’s a pumpkin, and it fits me pretty well, I think.
You can see from this photograph that I’m very, very big. About the size of a train. So I’m not just any pumpkin, I’m one of those honkin’ huge squash that they put in the newspaper.
So you tell me, please, what in heck is going on with these guinea pigs? That’s my costume! THOSE ARE SOME HONKIN’ BIG GUINEA PIGS!
And what the HECK is that thing over there? A guinea pig version of The Wrong Trousers or something?
It isn’t just Stevie Ray, either. Look at Fred! He’s huge, too!
Easily as big as a train, wouldn’t you say?
Here’s our Birthday Boy, Carl! He just turned 8 years old!
Carl, how does it feel to be an eight year old codger?
Have a deliriously delightful halloween!
