STL Pet Expo Costume Contest Pt. 5/6

Well now we get to the most exciting portion of the STL Pet Expo. The Costume Contest!!!

By 5pm Bobo was getting tired and when he gets tired he get kinda grumpy so he took a ring side seat with momma.

First up was the pet and pawrent portion.

OOOH Cruella and a Dalmation (although we have a sneaking suspicion its a great dane).

Chia mom and Chia Pup

The circus trainer and cheetah pup

There was a senorita and a taco! Complete with maracas!!!

And the cutest of all a Baby Monkey and Banana Dog.

The superhero set.

A football and football player.

The Mad Hatter and Cheshire cat.

In the ring.

Pups without dressed pawrents entered the ring.

There was a lovely Cocker with a mop top (and yes I do have curl envy!) He was an ice cream sunday and looked nommy!


A rain cloud complete with rain drops and a lightning bolt.

A pretty fairy.

A Bewitching Dog!

A whole team of football players.

A lion.

A cowboy.

HEY Thats NO Doggie! Thats a horse dressed as a cowboy. OH MY Thats pretty good!

Look at this costume-less doggie trying to sneak into the ring.

Another pretty puffy fairy!

OOOH A scarecrow just like on mommas farmville. BOL

This costume was quite popular. The owner said this dog is a puppy mill survivor too! Her mom is awfully creative!!!

A pretty pumpkin.

A western cowdog.

Ah Ha Thats why that poor poodle was getting dyed orange...He is a pumpkin for Howl-o-ween!

A punk rocker.

A sweet pea.

And a Jumping reindeer!

And last but NOT least I entered the ring! I twirled all the way in and the crowd loved me!!!

The judges deliberated and it came out in a tie between me and the Prop B dog.

So they had a clap-off to determine the winner! I twirled once more so they could see the tassels fly.

And by a ROAR of applause I won! I must say The Prop B dog had my vote (as a former breeder dog myself) but I won the hearts of the audience. Can you believe me a little country dog winning the hearts of a whole city as big as St. Louis, MO?!?!?!

Cruella and the Dalmation won the Pup and Pawrent category. Congrats!

So after the costume competition we made one last pass through the booths and such. Once we hopped out of our buggies and into the car we instantly fell asleep.

Then we took a quick pee break and headed to our room. I went straight to bed and didn't get up till 8am the next morning.

Well with this win I am an official 5 week trick winner and 1 week costume winner! I am quite excited that everyone loved my twirls.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo
