Someone is ready for Halloween.

Basil’s favorite holiday is the same as mine… and this year he wanted to be…  A Sub Pup.

I know it appears as if he is not all that happy in the above photo. Trust me, he loves it. After he stopped turning and trying to bite the periscope, sprinting around the house and yard…  He Loves It.

DO your pets dress up for Halloween?  :)

Oooh my gosh, Basil is adorable!
We saw a cape that said “Count Barkula” on it and we wanted to get it for our puppy so badly!

Where did you get that costume?????? It’s awesome!


4 spabettie September 13, 2010 at 7:41 am

Target !! they have SO many awesome costumes, Jason and I were laughing so hard, holding them up and picturing Basil in them… you need to go find something for Clyde!! I may have to go back and get another. :)

Yes! That’s where we get ours, too. However, I work with this company on occasion, and they just sent me some of these images http://www.californiacostumes.com/catalog/costumes/pet-costumes

It’s not right, but I love it.

Yes! That’s where we get our costumes, too! However, I work with this company on occasion, and they just sent me some of these images

It’s not right, but I love it anyway 😉

13 Aimee September 13, 2010 at 6:21 am

Super cute! It’s our favorite holiday too, and the pup loves her costumes. She has several. LOL!


14 Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty September 13, 2010 at 6:33 am

aaaaaaaaaahahaha :) cute.


15 Jill September 13, 2010 at 8:27 am

This is so cute, I almost fainted. I WISH my cat would tolerate costumes of any kind. I’d dress him up everyday if so.
Basil is going to totally score when he goes kibble trick or treating!


16 lindsay September 13, 2010 at 8:36 am

too stinkin cute! I love dressing up our lab. She hates it but she looks pretty adorable.


17 Joslyn @ missfitbliss September 13, 2010 at 10:39 am

A – DOR – ABLE. I’ve never dress up Clint, but that’s because he’s so huge, nothing fits him.


18 LiveForTheRun September 13, 2010 at 11:10 am

SHUT UP!!!!! ADORABLE!!! That is precious:)


19 Yum Yucky September 13, 2010 at 11:21 am

We don’t have a dog (yet?). My husband is trying to talk me into it. :)


20 mercade September 13, 2010 at 3:54 pm

I love it! How unique! Basil is so cute in his Halloween costume! He’ll be the envy of every party!


21 Briana September 13, 2010 at 5:29 pm

I l o v e i t ! ! ! : )


22 hbobier September 16, 2010 at 10:04 am

YES. I think Sheldon wants to be a sub too. Or a doctor, I just think that one’s hilarious.

Basil looks so cute as a sub though!!


23 spabettie September 16, 2010 at 10:16 pm

YES I first picked doc for Sheldog (Sheldoc?), but now I want him to be twinz with Basil. :) get the sub!! :)

I couldn’t find the doctor costume, but OH MY STARS there are SO MANY FUN ones… have you been yet? They have a gladiator with the chariot thing wrapping around the dog body, they have a cowboy riding the dog body, I saw the grapes (they were out of size small) SO MANY.

Super fun. I may have to get another.


24 bitt September 16, 2010 at 10:16 pm

25 spabettie September 16, 2010 at 10:17 pm

awesome!! what are you doing?? :) if you don’t want to say yet, you’ll have to show photos later :)


26 Elizabeth September 18, 2010 at 2:59 pm

O your dog is so cute! I don’t have a dog myself, but we always dress up my mom’s dogs. Susie hates her disney princess outfits, but the kids that trick or treat love it. And Buster loves his football outfit.


27 spabettie September 18, 2010 at 5:05 pm

oh, Thank You !! :) Basil says thank you… he loves his spabettie blog fans. Did you see his page on my blog, and his five minutes of celebrity recently ? 😀


28 Shirley @ gfe September 19, 2010 at 4:06 pm

OMG, Basil’s too too cute! Our collies would never tolerate dressing up, although I did stick the costume headbands on them from time to time, like the ones for witches, lions, etc. … for all of 2 seconds, until they shook them off. 😉



29 Theresa @ActiveEggplant September 19, 2010 at 4:17 pm

Dottie would never cuddle with me again if I put her in a costume! Basil looks absolutely adorable as a submarine!


30 Erika October 5, 2010 at 6:12 pm

I LOVE THIS!!!! This is just… beyond awesome. LOL!


31 spabettie October 5, 2010 at 6:13 pm

:) GOOD ! …maybe makes you like Halloween, just a little bit?


32 Kath (My Funny Little Life) September 13, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Waaaaaahaaaahaaaaa! 😀 😀 😀 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_cwWP5Qf1k


33 spabettie September 14, 2011 at 4:40 pm

tee hee… exactly.


34 Shirley @ gfe September 13, 2011 at 5:02 pm

OMG, Basil as a sub pup rules! He looks good in yellow. 😉



35 spabettie September 14, 2011 at 4:40 pm

thanks, Shirley!! 😀 it just makes me smile.


36 Abby September 13, 2011 at 5:16 pm

Oh yes. Chauncey was a lobster last year and I volunteer every Halloween at the Howl N Boo. Plus, one of my magazines deals with party stores and obviously Halloween is a huge part of that industry. I get pet costume images sent to me all the time, everything from puppy submarines to sexy schoolgirls (school dogs?)

I don’t care what time of the year it is, a dog dressed like food will always make me smile!


37 spabettie September 14, 2011 at 4:39 pm

school dogs – ha! 😉 Jason wanted the lobster costume for Basil last year – we couldn’t find it… perhaps I’ll find one this year! I love seeing dogs dressed in ANYTHING, actually! :) I’m still on the fence as to whether I’d dress Basil in one of those hot dog costumes…


38 poop September 15, 2011 at 10:21 am

wow you are a boring old lady


39 spabettie September 15, 2011 at 10:26 am

haaa this made me laugh.

thanks, I guess, Mr or Ms Passive Aggressive!


40 Eden September 15, 2011 at 3:32 pm

LOVE your name!


41 Moe September 15, 2011 at 11:43 am

“We all live in a yellow subma-Weenie!”


42 spabettie September 15, 2011 at 4:48 pm

YES !! 😀
