The Dog Eared Great Costume Contest

Every year we look forward to the Halloween holiday! We love dressing up and thinking about all the treats we will recieve and all the parties we will attend. Since this is our first year celebrating Halloween with our blog friends we are hosting a costume contest. Any dog, cat, horse, or goat can enter as long as they enjoy the dressing up and posing. (That part was added for you Sasha...BOL) Please submit your photo(s) via the Pee Mail link on the right tool bar. You may start sending in your photos now and they will be accepted until midnight October 24th 2009. On Monday October 26 we will post all of the entries and then on October 31 2009 we will post the winners, hand out awards, and prizes will be mailed. There will be 2 winners chosen one for most original/unique costume and one for best set up (use of props and background). We cannot wait to see what our fabulous blog friends can come up with!

We are including some of our old photo shoots for inspiration.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo


  1. OMD guys, you have the greatest photo shoots!!!!! We're going to have to kick Mom's butt in gear to get us some costumes, BOL!!

    Waggles and kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

  2. you guys are too cute dressing up and sitting nice for photo shoots. and you have such wonderful props! we are excited about halloween this year at our house too!!

  3. You are so cute!! Carrleigh might let Mom dress her up, but the rest of us will be in our dog suits.

  4. Great pictures guys. We love the picture of Bobo driving the tractor.
    This will be a fun contest. Mom still has to make our costumes. She has the fabric, she just has to find the time to sew.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  5. Awww, we love your costumes of past and present! If we weren't such total spazoids, maybe mom could "try" to get a costume of sorts on us! We'll see...

  6. Hi Mollie,

    Last year I was a witch for Halloween. I don't know if mom will get me and Banjo new costumes this year but if she does I will enter your contest. It sounds like lots of fun!

    Wags & wiggles,

  7. Okay. I'm inspired. I wonder if I could make Tango a costume too. I think he needs to join the dog world along with Maddie and Annabelle!

    Your photos are so cute!

  8. This is adorable. I liked the old shots, too. Great idea! I may not be participating because Halloween is my mother's birthday and I have so much to do for that, it's hard to dress up the dog too!

    But I will definitely be checking out the contestants and maybe will come up with something last minute.

  9. Great costumes! Unfortunately I don't like clothes, so I think I'm immediately disqualified, but I can't wait to see the entries!

    *kissey face*

  10. Love all the pics! I had a pic of Patachou (angel rottie) wearing a skunk outfit but for some or other reason that pic has disappeared. He looked so cute. He loved to wear cloths!

  11. We are no use at dressing up - both of us hate it!
    We loved seeing your pics though - you look very cute.
    We will enjoy seeing your competition entries.

  12. Wow this sounds like fun. The only dress up pictures I have of the kitties are for Christmas last year (and I don't have one of all of them, since one was not born yet). I had been thinking it could be fun to try for Halloween - now I have an even better reason to try it out!!

  13. Furry furry khute!

    I khan't wait to see the entrants!


  14. You two do such a great job with both the costumes AND the setup. We will have to see if we have any ideas for us.

  15. Do bandana's count??? BOL I'm not really one to 'dress-up'... BOL


    Do know I have been reading all your posts! It's just so hard to find good help these days...

  16. Oh I feel sick. Mommy is already pulling out my costumes and getting (gulp) props ready for me. Help me please, boo-hoo. Mommy loves Halloween and fall so I am in trouble.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha( in hiding until November)

    Thank you for hosting this wonderful contest. Sasha will give in, she always does.


  17. I am all over that action! Momma is having a costume custom made for me by the nice lady who made my hoodie. I can't wait!


  18. Hi Molly and BoBo!

    Epic and I just did a Halloween photoshoot so we could enter a picture for your contest, but I can't seem to get your pee mail link to work! Could I trouble you to send us the address? Thanks a bunch!

    Epic refused to wear his vampire outfit, so we're just going to pretend he's a terrier-ist!

  19. Autumn in general and Halloween in particular was always my favorite part of the year when we lived back in New York!

  20. fun, fun, FUN!!! Now to get on Mama to make me a costume!!!



We are wagging with excitement that you stopped by our blog!
