Halloween Parade 2010

Last year I marched in the annual Halloween Doggy parade put together by Fetch, my favorite pet store. Last year Mommy dressed me up as a beautiful fairly princess. Butchy and Angel Snickers Mommy made the costume for me.




















I took second prize and received a basket of cheer with all kinds of treats and toys.

















The bar was now set for this year. Mom was determined to get first place. Preparations were underway. There were costume fittings...




















And then there was grooming...















Grooming sucks...

Saturday was the big day. We arrived early to checkout the festivities.

Mommy and I had matching pirate costumes, complete with parrots.

















While walking through Port Jefferson village I met some new friends.
















I received many compliments on my new costume.





























Imagine my surprise when I ran into my best friend Winston. He was a bagpipe player.













It was time to march, there were hundreds of doggies participating.

































When the parade was over Mommy and I got to pose for a picture with the mayor.



















Cablevision News interviewed Mommy. I hope she told them to turn on Fox 5 so Daddy can watch the playoffs... HeHeHe...
















Then they wanted my opinion but I was too shy.


















My human sissy Melissa came to see the festivities with baby Lilly.

































Well the parade judges rendered their decision. I took third place. The prize was a gift certificate to Fetch and a doggy basket of cheer. There were all kinds of treats, chewy things, and some stuffies.

I don't know what Mom has planned for me next year. Competition is tough.

Happy Halloween and Luna Licks,

Lunatic

We wish we'd've been the judges. Then you would've been awarded first place! Those were fabulous pirates you were! And totally in character.

Congratulations! And hugs to the little duckie.

Hey! We're back! With some VeryImportantNews!

OK. We're gonna admit. Straightaway. No bones about it. We're taking the easy peasy way out. We want to get around to EVERYONE on our blog roll to remind you about the Second Annual Worldwide Moment coming up on Sunday 14 Nov 10. Were you there last year? Do you remember? Or are you new to it this year? Wondering what that Countdown Clock is on blogs that you visit? Whatever. We want you and everyone you know to have a chance to participate in the Silent Minute, the Candle Lighting and the Shout Out! Come visit. We've got a new banner for you, HTML for an (accurate, now that the word UNTIL is in red) Countdown Clock and a link to figure out what time 11:00 PM GMT is in your neck of the woods.

So. You're getting this 'cause we've been friends in the blogging world and we want you to know.

Please forgive the "stock" comment, but we told Moma we've never done this before and we'll not do it again (at least until next year.)

Loads of wirey love and lots of encouragment to join in (and to pass the word)
Jake and Fergi (and OurMoma and OurCollegeGirl)
