Petsmart Howl-O-Ween Party 2009

Tuesday October 20, 2009 Petsmart hosted their yearly Howl-O-Ween party from 6pm to 8pm. We have attended since 2005.

When we arrived we headed to the picture center. This little pink butterfly was just about to have her picture taken.

While waiting in line I saw ***HER***
She was a 6 month old female poodle. She takes a wonderful picture doesn't she?

Then it was our turn to have our picture taken. Mollie was a flapper and I was a purple monkey.

After pictures we got a nummy nummy bag. It had a ton of coupons and treats inside.

What is that I spot over there...

It's a banana dog!

There was a princess...
...A pirate...

...and a BIG bear!

We also spotted a pink fairy...

...a football star...

A big bumble bee...

...a tiny bumble bee...
...and a very long bumble bee. This bumble bee we knew personally. She is the pup of grandma's coworker. Oh and her name is Molly (with a Y)...Small world huh?!? She posed with her bi-ped siblings.

~~~~~~Now here is where things get interesting~~~~~~

After pictures we all headed to the training area for the judging. Each dog or cat (there were two cats...momma couldn't get their pictures) entered the training ring and had their chance to show their stuff.

Here is Mollie Jo dancing and showing off the tassels on her dress.
There were alot great entries and alot of unique costumes. Guess who won 1st prize. Miss Mollie Jo as the flapper girl! She won a $20 gift card. Momma and grandma were so excited and shocked! Because ever since we have been going the same dog (a min pin named Elvis) wins every year and in the same costume (dressed as Elvis Presley).

This is Mollie's Victory shot with her goodie bag and gift card.
Everyone came up shook her paw and congratulated her on her win. They loved her outfit and painted nails.
Mollie was a good sport and congratulated the second place winner. Elvis the min pin dressed as Frankenstein (not dressed as Elvis Presley this year).

Once all the festivities were over she did a quick wardrobe change and went shopping with her gift card. She picked out a new Halloween loofa dog toy and 2 ziggies (one for her and one for me)....isn't that sweet of her?
Then...I got to meet ***HER***. I gave her the good ol' sniff and fell madly in love. As things turned out they wanted to see Mollie and congratulate her on her win and were off again before I could get her name and pee mail. So little girl if you are out there and reading my blog...please contact me. I feel we were meant to be together.
So after the party we went to Doggy Nanny's house to tell her of the nights events. I told the stories and Mollie played with her new loofa dog toy.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Pee Ess: Signed copies of Mollie the flapper will be available on Friday for $4 each or 2 for $6.


  1. Congrats on your big night and to Mollie for the big win!!! Ya'll were so cute in your costumes!!!

  2. What a great post and well done Mollie! We just loved all those pics. The second bumble bee looked like a basset too!!!
    We loved both Mollie Jo's flapper outfit and also your monkey outfit!
    We see you have fallen in love at Pet Smart too!
    Our mum would love it if we would allow ourselves to be dressed up but we keep acting as though something very bad is going to happen so she gave up!!!
    We have never known anyone famous like you before!
    love and kisses

  3. CONGRATS!!! What a pawesome day you both had!!! And that little 50s poodle girl in a poodle skirt (MOL, MOL, MOL!) was furry kyute!!! You totally deserve to W~I~N!!! And, that was furry nice of you to share your winnings!!!

  4. Wow, that was fun! I wish we were there with you. But best of all, I am so glad you finally won with your flapper contest, Mollie! Elvis was stealing the show for way too long. And I hope SHE gets in touch with you - she is cute. And your type, too! Maybe a little on the young side - Elvis the min pin may have been stealing the show, but you're robbing the cradle! Bobo looked adorable, too, btw! The two of you take a cute picture, as usual.

  5. Congrats on your win. We love the costumes.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  9. OH congratulations on your 1st place win. You def deserved it!!! What a cute outfit. Loved all the pics!!! I wished Nanuchy wasn't so grouchy and Sonja so skitish, I'd totally take them places. My next puppy I swear will have all kinds of fun adventures!

  10. Congratulations Mollie! You totally deserved the win. Your costume was great. Bobo, you looked so adorable as purple monkey! It looks like everyone had a good time. We missed the PetSmart Howl-o-ween thing this year because Mommy only has one good leg right now. But we are hoping to make up for it at the Hairy Winston Howl-o-ween event on the 31st.

    Chihuahua kisses,
    The Munchkins

  16. What wonderful costumes. And you wear them well too (unlike some spastic pee-wee's I know). So many cute doggies. That big bear dog didn't look too happy, though.


  17. Congratulatons Mollie! You are the cutest flapper girl we have ever seen. And that ain't no lie!

    All the doggies had terrific costumes!

    Bobo, I hope you can meet up with that little curly haired cutie again sometime.


  18. Mollie, you looked so great in your costume - congrats on your win, we think Bobo should have won something too. There were a lot of cute costumes there but our favorites (after you two of course) were the banana dog and the pirate.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  20. GREAT costumes - and congratulations to Mollie!!! Excellent pictures! (And Mom was oohing and ahhing over the little poodle princess, too.... Actually, Mom is oohing and ahhing over you guys, too - she thinks you two are just painfully cute!!! I agree, BTW!)

    *kissey face and Happy Early Howl-o-ween!*

  21. Wow those are great pictures - it sounds like you had so much fun! I am trying to get pics of the kitties in their costumes - it is pretty tough because they hate it - they are not good at costumes like you are!

  22. What a fun costume party, we never get to do stuff like that!!
