Ready for Trick-or-Treat!


The time is finally here to unveil the halloween costume!  It wasn't what we originally planned for (the Darth Vadar costume didn't fit), but what we ended up with is priceless!  Presenting my little devil, Brutus!!



After all, he is always into something, up to no good. 
What more fitting costume could there be?

Where's my pitchfork?? I thought I left it up here....

And the horns are eerily realistic, no?


Brutus was so tolerant of the costume that I just kept snapping photos, but eventually he got a little bored:

Could you at least fix my ear??  It's sorta stuck under the hat...

Geez, mom - aren't we done yet???


Mason doesn't get into halloween, but I bribed him into a few pictures with some liver treats:
It's tough to look distinguished when you are sporting bat antennae!


My husband will revoke my blogging rights if I post any more photos of his Mason like that... SOOO, moving on...

Here's Brutus, modeling his after-party outfit.  He is especially excited about his new Halloween collar which arrived today from Liz at CollarMania (along with a few other seasonal ones for the next few months!)

The shirt was on sale at PetSmart.  Don't tell Brutus, but it's actually a cat shirt!!  Be that as it may, it fits better than any other shirt I've bought him!

Such a cheeseball!!  He's even got a pumpkin ID tag that Paul bought him.  This is one pup that is ready for Trick-or-Treating!


With that, we'll leave you with a parting shot - literally

Did I hear the doorbell???  Candy, here I come!!

Brutus! You are a perfect little devil. I think that outfit must feel right on you, especially the horns. Those labradogs have no sense of adventure when it comes to dressing up.

Slobbers,

Hi Mason, I think you look quite charming with your bobbing bats.
Oh Brutus, I am soooo loving your costume. No one will recognize you. They'll never think that YOU would be dressed as your polar opposite??? Smart move Bud. You're gonna snag some major treats.

Martine said...

LOVE your costume Brutus... maybe next year the kiddlets will cooperate!

Your new collar is fantastic! Once Candy gets full grown we will get her a custome collar!!

Happpy Halloween Brutus!

Brutus,
The devil costume fits you so well. I suppose being black, and having a costume with black horns is just a coincidence. You look cute, and you are ready for Halloween.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Most excellent costume. (That IS a costume, and not just your daily work attire, right?!?) Heehee!

Happy Halloween from those of us who don't dress up!

ocmist said...

Wow! I don't think you could have FOUND anything better! Your coloration and expressions with that costume are just perfect!!! You are the greatest little actor! BG

chicamom85 said...

Brutus, you look very fetching in your costume. Poor Mason, he does not look very happy with his bat ears. Maybe you could wear that costume when the Dyson monster comes out and then it would be too scared of you and run away.

licks and sniff, Sasha

MAX said...

OMD! OMD! OMD! You guys are excellent!!! Brutus is sooooo funny and soooo cute! Those horns really suit him - he looks a bit like a Tazmanian devil:) hehehe!
...and the colours on Mason are incredible (mom's eyes were starting to de-focus...causing a spell of excessive blinking!)
Eish, you guys are good! I think we are really missing out on the fun here in South Africa. I really wish we were there with you all to see all those awesome costumes.
Enjoy it all! WOW!

OMD Brutus! You look GREAT! I wish I had a devil costume.. that would be so much better than a lion. On the other hand we won't actually celebrate Halloween so I can leave it at home and travel up to the lake.

The OP Pack said...

Brutus,you sure know how to make a devil look good. You look fantastic in your costume AND in your new shirt. But poor Mason, we understand your Dad's feelings - why do humans do this to us?

Happy Halloween to all, the OP Pack

Mack said...

He makes quite a handsome little devil!

Since mom never could find the Mack Daddy outfit in my size, she's given up on finding me a costume!

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Brutus you are one handsome devil! BOL! We love your costume and your cool new shirt and collar. You are definitely ready for Howl-o-ween! Mason was very cute too in his spidey antennas!

Chihuahua kisses,

Mica said...

I love this! Brutus is the best Halloween devil ever!

Devilishly handsome, Brutus. Mason's very tolerant of his antennae too.

Have a great Howloween!

Tobi said...

Brutus you are very handsome in red satin. Love Mason's bat headband - bats are big here in Austin. I also love your Creature of the Night photo shoot - especially the pic of you looking over your shoulder... there isn't a more adorable French Bulldog around.

Deborah said...

Great photo's.. The cat outfit is a so cute and don't worry, we won't tell him!

Santa and Minnie said...

Brutus looks great in that outfit! As for Mason, sorry Mason but he looks so funny with that antennae. The way he looks makes us laugh...hahaha!...sorry Mason that we laughed.

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

You're the cutest little devil we've ever seen, Brutus!! Great Howl-O-Ween pictures! They're PAWESOME!!!

dw said...

OMG what a cute little devil!! I must say the black Frenchie and the red devil outfit.... it's a match made in .... er..... well, you get my point! I love the bat antennae, though poor Mason looks like he could do without the bat antennae!

Dory and the Mama said...

Lavane001 said...

Hi Brutus!

A quick intro: I'm a friend of your buddies Oakley and Swisher. I'm Aunt V. =)

I have to say, you look ADORABLE! I'm sure your Vader costume was going to be a nice fit, but OMD(as u might say), you make a great lil' devil! I've checked out your blog a few times. You're a cute lil' fellow. But I couldn't let the holiday go by without expression how handsome you look.

I wish you a very Happy Halloween! Hope you can get your paws on some candy from those trick-or-treaters!

Great Blog! =)

Oakley and Swisher said...

Wow Brutus buddy what a COOOOOOL costume. We love it! We can't believe you let your mom put stuff on your head. We won't so mom had a heck of a time finding us costumes where we didn't have a head piece. She hasn't put up our costume post yet because she is stuck at work late.
Your brother was a good sport too! Great Howloween spirit we hope you two get lots of great treats.

Lots of Licks--
Oak and Swish

Sam said...

(BTW, I e-mailed you last night, I hope it went to the right place!)

SEDONA said...

You devil you, Brutus! Hee-hee! Did you get to go around your neighbor so people could ooh and aah? I did, come check me out!
I just met an 8 week-old Frenchie who lives on my daily walk route...sooooooo cute! His coloring is like a Boston Terrier. His name is Oliver and I'll tell my human to take a pic of him soon.
Your pal,
Sedona
