Most dogs despise being dressed up in costumes in order to amuse their human companions. What our canine friends tolerate from us deserves ample treats and affection.
Our dog Cowboy is an exception. As you can see from the above photo taken a couple of years ago at Halloween, he loves to be dressed up in costumes…Halloween, Christmas…whatever the season he’s eager to be festooned with festive apparel. Why? Because costumes mean attention, and the only thing more important to Cowboy than being the center of human attention is ensuring that no other pet in the house receives a moment of the attention that rightly belongs only to him.
We’ve come to discover that Cowboy is not alone in his costume fetish. In fact, his breed, the Fox Terrier (Winner of 13 Best in Show titles at the Westminster Dog Show…Cowboy would have you know that is far more than any other breed, thank you!), seems to be particularly fond of wearing silly clothing. Check out the video link below of another Fox Terrier in costume. I hope it makes you laugh as much as it made us laugh.
Happy Halloween, Samhain, All Saints Day, All Souls Day, Reformation Day and Dia de los Muertos!
