Halloween Night Terrors
Michele Carlin, 43, of Ferndale loves dressing her dogs up in cute costumes. This year, her 2-year-old Yorkshire terrier, Ruby, will don a poodle skirt with a pony tail for Halloween and her 12-year-old schnauzer, Bubbles, will be disguised as a sorceress.
"They're like my kids, except there's no adolescence," Carlin said. "I can dress them up and they don't complain."
Don't do it. I'm warnin' you. You think we don't complain? Maybe not in words, or even barks. But did ya' ever wonder why we have bowel problems at inconvenient times and suddenly need to go out two or three times a night? Or why the water bowl is suddenly upset all over the kitchen floor? Or why our favorite toy is left right in the doorway to the bathroom for you to trip over in the middle of the night?
No way do we canines want to look like this.

Trickie would never let me get away with dressing him up, though he does wear a belt in the house since he tends to mark stuff to prove it's his.
Maya might suffer through it, but she would look so pitiful and pathetic that we'd have to take the costume off again to salve our consciences.
Lovey and Emeril would be scared and squeak a lot while they ran around trying to GET THAT THING OFF!!!
