Halloween Costumes

Hector Wheelie here and I've had a heck of a time getting the boys ready for Halloween. I had their costumes all planned out, but I guess they had other ideas.





First off, I thought Mango would look magestic as a wizard with a cape and magic party collar and everything, but he was clearly not thrilled with my choice...



For Dexter, I had this great bee outfit. Master helped him get into it.




But he kept wiggling all around and I just couldn't get it to stay on properly.Mango tried to explain to him what a perfect outfit it was. I mean, he can go to the party as a bee and Randi can be a flower... get it?Guess not... the little guy refused to cooperate. He thought it was just way over the top for him.Maybe something simple? But he didn't really like this either.You can't really argue with a labradude once he makes up his mind. Dexter insisted that this would be his costume. He wants to be a labrarabbit. Personally, I think its kind of a stretch, but if it makes him happy...Meanwhile, I wanted to go as the Mummy! This seemed like a good idea at the time, but its kind of hard to see where I'm going. Besides, I don't want to scare anybody, so...I'm going to be a poodle!Imagine my surprise when I found out that Mango had slipped into the bee outfit! So its settled, Dexter is a labrabunny, I'm a poodle, and Mango is (sigh) a bee. See you at the party!


Hector Wheelie! Over and out!

Wow, Hector, that was a lot of work! You did a great job on the costumes, even if the boys didn't cooperate.

A labrabunny, an oversized bee, and a poodle! What a great trio you make! (we especially love your costume, Hector!)

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

LOL! You all look great in our costumes for the party! I especially liked Mango's idea of going as a bee...*wink* Dexter is super cute too as a rabbit!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Ah, Hector poodle, you're so creative and fabulous.
I loved all the costume: Dexter will be a great labrabunny, Mango, if you were a bee then I'll try to be a butterfly.
Is the butterfly too girly?

Saint Lover said...

Absolutely love the costumes! Rufus and Apollo were butterflies last year and Brutus was a Devil. Zeus refused to participate as did Eris but Hera was a witch.

Can't wait to see party pix!

Sami & Baylee said...

I ve your custumes! You all look so CUTE! Mango your just HANDSOME. Me and Sami love the kitty and I like to just follow her around and well Sami thinks the kitty is her baby and cleans the kitty and plays gentle bitty face and the kitty even cleans Sami and chases her tail. I just like to observe the kitty before I play with her. We both love her, you should talk your mommy into getting you guys one. Love Baylee

Oh you doggies and wheelie have such cool halloween costumes

Great costumes!

Winterdark said...

Mango's coat marbeling could be passed as bee stripes. Now what would be really cool is if those wings acutally worked and Mango ended up FLYING to the party.

Hector, we love your Poodle suit! Our mom is on the floor with Mumsie and Khyra's mom! I'm not so sure about Mango as a bee...maybe a carpenter bee since they are almost big enough to ride on!

Abby said...

Hi, Hector...

Abby xxxooo

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Heehee...

It's nice to meet your family! I stumbled across your blog through Saint Lover's site, and I have laughed my way through the last year of entries!

I have two boys: Gus (2 year old Golden) and Waldo (6 mo. Great Dane). We look forward to reading more about you all!

Toffee said...

I totally did not recognize you in your poodle outfit - ooh la la!

Dexter is such a cutie in all of his outfits..

And, well, Mango makes a very handsome bee

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Of course! We would love to be friends with you! I'll add you to my RSS as well!

Mack said...

I think you've all made wonderful choices with your costumes!
I just hope Dexter doesn't have the urge to chase himself!

Moco said...

What an ordeal. That is quite the effort you put into getting all ready for the holiday. That mummy was one of the best, though the poodle is cute. Hopefully you did not glue those cotton balls onto yourself. Mango's bee needs to epand it's horizons.

MJ's doghouse said...

wow hector...it is a good thing you told me that Mango was going to be a bee, cuz otherwise I would never have been able to find him at the halloween party....I wonder if mom can find me a flower costume...hmmmmmmmand hector your are the cutest poodle i have ever seen

Lady Kaos said...

My mom is allergic to bees so she says she hopes she never meets a Mango Bumblebee! I think the bunny and the poodle costumes, too.

BenTheRotti said...

Those are great costume choices..

i have a question though..

Mango Dude, how in the name of doG did you get in that costume!! O_M_D I would have staked my annual treat rations that no way in dogdom was that gonna fit you! I PRAYED it wouldn't cos now Mum is saying..

"Hey, if you can get costumes to fit Mango then there must be a costume out there to fit you Ben"

AAARRRGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!

All I can say is Thank doG that they don't sell such costumes over here and her stupidity means she has left it too late to get one shipped from anywhere else.. for this year at least.. I AM SAFE!!
