I’m feeling pretty good as I’ve been behind on my posts, but I am however getting this up before Halloween, so this is progress! A few weekends back, I think it was the same weekend as the Greek Festival, we finally got the opportunity to take Chunk to Howl-O-Weenie!
Last year we were out-of-town for a wedding, so Chunk went without us, and the year before that I think we may have actually had another wedding. So we were so excited to be able to check out the festivities!
They had all kinds of great contests, starting of course with the costume contest. While we were certainly proud of Chunk’s banana costume, it was no match for all of these other creative doxie owners! We didn’t even try to compete!
But there were definitely a lot of cool costumes, and it wasn’t just the doxies dressing up, but they were duos with their owners! Check out the Wicked Witch and Dorothy!
I couldn’t resist including this little guy! He’s a ferocious lion and while you can’t see his owner… they were dressed as the Circus Lion Tamer!
But my personal Best in Show were these three! The Bus and Crosswalk Lady comes in third, The Doxie Jockie duo come in second, and finally the Allpotraz Convicts come in first! There were so many creative costumes… it was a very cool event!
After the costume contest, they had the licking contest which Paul was a judge for, then it was onto bobbing for weenies (which Chunk would have been great at – but he was a little out of his element!).
And I can’t forget to thank Paul’s cousin Lori, her husband Larry, and their adorable girls Lexi and Lena for coming out to the festivities! They have a big dog, so this was a new experience for them! And Lexi and Lena loved holding Chunk! Paul got this great picture of them, so I just had to include it!!!
