A Howl-o-ween Party

by Meghann on October 20, 2009

Happy Howl-O-ween!


My local PetSmart hosted a doggie halloween party tonight and I couldn’t resist a chance to dress little Maddie up and have her burn some energy playing with other pups.


Can you tell what her costume is?


She’s a FSU Football player! Lame I know, but I couldn’t afford to spend $$ on a new costume at the moment. Plus if we’re not going to support our Noles, then who else it? ๐Ÿ˜‰


I’m no fair weather fan, Noles are #1 no matter how they’re playing.


The store was pretty full of dogs decked out in some creative costumes.





As part of the festivities Maddie and I partook in a game of ‘Musical Sits’


‘Musical Sits’ resembles musical chairs. You walk in a circle with your pup and when the music stops you have to tell your pup to sit. The last one to sit gets booted from the game.

I thought it was a cute game and guess what? WE WON!!!!

Maddie is an awesome sitter and every time the music stopped she would sit right on cue.

We earned a frisbee as our prize.


We also received a goodie bag full of treats, samples and coupons.


It contained a couple human treats as well.


I ate the lollipop while Maddie played. ๐Ÿ™‚

And last, not least Maddie and I had our photo taken and got this cute frame.


After the party Maddie immediately passed out and I made a delicious, yet odd dinner.


I really needed to eat the rest of my sushi from yesterday, but I also wanted veggies with marinutta sauce.


The combination looks odd together, but really worked. I guess it helps that I was craving both in the first place.


After dinner I nibbled on the rest of the ‘human treats’ from the goodie bag.


This afternoon i snacked on a left over Pumpkin Falafel Ball.


Vote for Me…

THANK YOU!! for all the votes today. I can’t believe in just a couple of hours I already have over 600!!!! Eekkk!!!

PLEASE help me keep it up and if you’re at another computer then please vote again and don’t forget to vote every day until Oct. 30th!

I hope I don’t get too annoying with all the begging, but I really want to be the Good Mood Blogger! I promise I will be the best good mood blogger there ever was! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Your marinutta combination doesn’t look odd at all; I was actually thinking it looked pretty delish!

I went to Petsmart the other day and saw a sign for the doggie halloween pictures. I also saw the sign for the doggie snuggie. Don’t dogs already have a snuggie? It’s called fur!

12 Tracey @ tropicalhappiness October 20, 2009 at 10:06 pm

I think MUSICAL SITS is the cutest game I have ever heard of!!! Love it! I also think it’s great that you took her to the “party” because it’s so great to tired them out!! Yay!

13 meyergirl October 20, 2009 at 10:17 pm

23 Stacey October 21, 2009 at 8:03 am

Hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ I love seeing dogs dressed up. My dog has a sweater and a rain jacket, but no costumes….There was a cute ballerina costume I saw in Petsmart last week though ๐Ÿ™‚
Yay for Maddie, hehe! And glad you got some goodies too

24 Anne P October 21, 2009 at 8:11 am

25 Angie (Losing It and Loving It) October 21, 2009 at 8:18 am

Voted! Hope you win.

Maddie looks adorable. What a fun time it looks like you both had. Love the picture of the two of you in that adorable frame.

26 Christy October 21, 2009 at 8:28 am

yeahh!! go noles!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

27 Mica October 21, 2009 at 9:00 am

Bah, this post totally made me want my doggy friend NOW! What a fun time. (Though what cruel person put ugly, pink booties on a dog?!?)

I’m sure FSU would be proud to know that Maddie dressed up as one of their illustrious football players, despite how the season is going. Maybe you should send a picture to F-ball marketing and ask for some free tickets. ๐Ÿ™‚

28 Tina October 21, 2009 at 9:40 am

Haha that party looked fun! My dog probably wouldn’t enjoy that.

I reaaally want to try those pumpkin falafel balls. Falafel is my life!

29 Mellissa October 21, 2009 at 9:41 am

How cute was that party! Maddie looked adorable as always! My dog would have been out of musical sits right away! He hardly ever sits, it’s very strange!

Hi there,

I have a question for you. I’d love to have a dog but I’m not sure if I can balance being a pet owner with working and exercising. How do you do it? Thanks for your insight!
