Luke, I Am Your Poodle

The Hairy Sith Lord Pokes Its Toungue At You.

Is there anything a dog won't do for the people it loves? This is standard poodle Delta, playing a dark Sith lieutenant to my nephew Grayson's Darth Vader. She adored trick-or-treating, and marched politely up to everyone's door by Grayson's side. Her only error was that the intended Dark Sith Death-Dog image was kind of marred by the tongue-lolling grin and the constantly-wagging tail sticking out from under her cape.

And this is our precious coonhound friend (and adopted family, through complicated poodle-relations) Fiona, in her fairy-princess outfit. I thought she loooked rather indignant, but was assured by her mom that she enjoyed being the belle of the ball. Anyone else have fun pet costumes to share?


  1. Oh, Belinda, this post made my day. What great dogs!

  2. I was hoping you would post a photo of Darth Maul Dog. Excellent! There is nothing funnier than a dog (or cat) in costume. They look so ridiculous. I'm addicted, as you know. I've still got a ton of photos I didn't post on my site. There's always next year!

  3. I'd definitely rather be Darth Dog than fairy dog.

  4. Sweet Fiona is a Fairy Princess because her story has a Fairy Tale ending!

    She went from being a lost, unwanted hunting dog on her last day at the city shelter to a new life as a spoiled, pampered house dog.

  5. That poodle is too cute - what a faithful dog!

  6. She is the BEST. Didn't work out as a breeding/show prospect, but I wouldn't trade her for a million. Besides, she is hopelessly devoted to Alex.

    Delta was actually the first thing Bella pulled up on, to stand. She's quite wonderful.

  7. It's hard to find anything purple for a large dog so guess I'll keep looking.

    Thanks, and have a great day!
