Our Halloween Costumes!

I was sad to read that little Tink crossed over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. Her momma wrote the most wonderful tribute to her and told the whole story of how they found each other. You can read it by clicking here and please leave your good thoughts for her family.

Our Halloween costumes arrived like a whole month ago, but it is only now that we tried them on.

Pee-Wee is supposed to be a monkey, but I don't think he liked the hood too much.

Ha! I can see why! He looks like a total doofus.

His outfit came complete with a monkey tail.

I think he liked that part at least. Hehehe.

I thought he should wear it all the time to work off some of his labrasteam AND to provide me with entertainments.

And what of the Mango?

I got a most stunning custom made vampire outfit!

I am Count Mangula!

I tried on just the cape first. Made it kind of hard to drink.

What do you think? Check out the red lining. Just like a real vampire for sure.

For all you full sized doggies requiring special outfits, please visit Dawn at My Pet Haven and tell her Mango sent you. She has plenty of stuff for you off the rack guys and gals as well.

Once I had the whole outfit on, the Pee-Wee became most jelly of my large and much better costumed self.

Back off! I am Mangula!

Are you all shaking and quaking?

Yuh, I am a most scary sight with my ruffled cravat and what not.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

What great costumes..
We are so sorry to hear about Tink

Swampechaun said...

Sorry to hear about Tink. I'm heading over there to leave my condolences.

Love your Halloween costumes. Blue and Clemmie are putting their's on tonight for a little photo shoot so be sure to look for that post. Mango Man is quite dashing in a cape.

doyle and mollie said...

aw yes you are looking mighty fine! dont tell peewee cos he might go ape - arf arf arf

Aniemother said...

Great costumes! We're most impressed.


Honey the Great Dane said...

Wow - you get your own special Halloween costumes bought and sent to you? How cool! All of my costumes are usually made by my human clobbering something together from the $2 store...although she tells me that Halloween is a much bigger event in the faraway place called America where you live - we don't really celebrate it here, except that human pups sometimes come to the door asking for sweets (they usually run away screaming when they hear my deep bark after they knock on the door!! :-)

I bet Khount Mangola wants to make The Beastie one of his vikhtims!

Nice khostumes -

Of khourse, better woo than me!

PeeEssWoo: Just wait until woo read Mumsie's TerrorFun!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Mango, you look totally awesome in that last photo!

The Army of Four said...

You'd think since Pee-Wee already HAS a tail... well, OK, never mind.
Wowzers, you do make the scariest Count Mangula I've EVER seen! What a cool costume.
Play bows,

Wild Dingo said...

Mango Man! Oh Yeah! I'm shakin' in my paws. Please don't show your fangs, or I may have an accident...

Woodrow, Luna, MJ Campanella said...

great costumes - i think wood is going to be a bumble bee again - and sweetie is a princess - and i am leaning toward the skunk for the little man - but maybe a dinosaur - we have several from years and years just gotta pull out the box

Chloe and Libby said...

Yes, we read about Tink yesterday and was really sad. Her mommy is probably gonna be sad for a really long time.

Your costume is great Mango, you look so awesome in it! Yeah, the PeeWee doesn't look as debonair(sp?) as you though, but his is still cute!
Pei Ess- Yes, we hope the neighbor man keeps his doggie at home too!

Marjie said...

Mango, you look dashing in your cape. Thor will be smiling at the door to hand out treats to those brave enough to visit HIS estate. Everyone knows a full sized doggy owns this corner of the world.

Enjoy your rehearsal!

dewdana said...

Oh my goodness RH, how on earth did your momma capture that rediculous video of pee wee without cracking up in the back ground! I am guessing by your most laid back and bored look in the video that this is a regular occurrence at your estate. Most hilarious! Your costumes are awesome. I did not know about that site so am making Moose's myself which means he will be doubly embarrassed on the big night! I will have to check it out though.

1000 Goldens said...

Mango - I can't tell you how much I love your costume! Totally made me happy to see your handsome self :)

Benny and Lily said...

Thank goodness you told us it was you and not a real vampire!
Benny & Lily

BRUTUS said...

Such appropriate costumes for both of you!! Dexter just needs a banana, and you Manog... I don't think you need anything at all! Mom says my costume is very fitting for my personailty too - can't wait to show it to everyone soon!

Devilish Snorts-
Brutus the Frenchie

Agatha and Archie said...

He fainted straight out at the last picture of you...You do look a bit scary.I have to go get the smelling salts..Love A+A

Gus said...

Mango Man..only you could carry off the ruffles.


Oskar said...

We will go and send our condolences to the family of Tink.

I do think Dexter looks a little dorky in his costume, but don't tell him. I don't want to hurt his feelings!

But you Mango, you make the most amazing vampire I have ever seen. That Labradork better stay out of your way so you don't drink his blood!

Deefor said...

Count Mangula is a very scary dude-- in a sophisticated way. Nice for Dexter to have 2 tails to chase. That should keep him busy. Not sure I would have guessed he was a monkey...

Maggie and Mitch said...

You make one very handsome vampire, Count Mangula!
We were hysterical watching poor Pee-Wee chase his monkey tail! haha
We are very sorry to hear about your friend, Tink. We're off to pay our respects.

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Tosca the Lakeland Terrier said...

Haha, you look very impalerish in that last picture!

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Oh, Mango. We is scared of you and your big, teethy self! Will you drool on us, or take a healthy bite?

Gus and Waldo

p.s. Mommee is trying to get Gus to stop giggling at Dexter's video, but he just won't stop.

Chester said...

Hi Mango! Sorry to hear about your friend Tink. (((HUGS))) to the family.
You make a great Count Mangula-almost scared the brown right offa me.
Mom would like to order one of those suits with a tail 'cuz I have labrasteam (LUV that word-may I have it?) and it would save her from walkin' me every night and then some.
Now-go suck up some biscuits Count!
Chester ;0=)

TwoSpecialWires said...

We have a feeling that before the big night, we're gonna see your canines grow and blood start dripping. And, just to appease us, let's pretend that vampires don't bite monkeys. OK? We think Dexter looks quite the part, and two tails are always better than one.

(Love your sheen...)
Jake and Fergs

Stella said...

You look very handsome in your Count Chocula costume. PeeWee, unhh,he got short changed I think.

When my Mom adoptinated me she promised to take good care of me, to look after my health and to never make me wear Halloween costumes. That was the clincher!


Samantha said...

So sad about Tink. Thank you for letting us know - we'll go right over. PeeWee sure does wonders for that costume with his dextrous (heheh)labraspins - wowzers. But YOU - the RH - are magnifico in your Count outfit. Ve-ry elegant and a most perfect choice for the Mango! Gotta work on pix of my costuming!
Huggers xo

Pug(s) and Bugg said...

BOL Mango you are the BEST vampire!!!!

The Thundering Herd said...

Oh, Peewee, that was just, well, sad. Exactly how long did you chase monkey tail?

The OP Pack said...

Great costumes, especially fun to see a double-tailed labradude:) Count Mangula, just awesome!!!

So very sorry to hear about Tink, we visited her blog earlier and left a message.

Woos, the OP Pack

JRT Chick said...

What a gorgeous Mastiff! Love the Halloween costumes! Skyler and I are still deciding. We're pumpkin picking tomorrow. We are actually from Rochester, MA by the Cape. (In Pittsburgh now finishing up graduate school.)

So glad to find other dog lovers. Check out my blog for some of Skyler's silliness.

I'm looking forward to following Mango.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hmm...first of all did you see Peewee was a monk??? Oh my...I feel faint...What? I have water in my ears from the shower...you said he's a monkey? Why's he chasin' his tail to the point of exhaustion like a cat? Couldn't ya have at least caught if for him Mango?? Poor guy is going to wear himself out...

And you're a vampire? I think we have some garden stakes left...just sayin'...case Peewee needs em or something...

Frankly, Mango...YOU LOOK HOT...TOTALLY...

Kisses, Boyz...



Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

To Momma from Mumsie...

If you really want your terrier fix, I would gladly mail you Lacie in a box...stuffed.

You can have Scruffy too...I'll keep the Stanman...he doesn't shriek or "snack"....OR BITE


Sophie Brador said...

Mangula, bwa ha ha ha ha. You look so scary, but still, so handsome.


P.S. For the record, I was not touching the flapjack. He was touching ME.

Dory and the Mama said...

OMD....Very scary Mango....VERY SCARY....

Mama says that Dexter is a natural monkey!!


Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Heehee. Peewee as a monkey! Hah! I think your Mom might be having a laugh at his expense. (Just maybe!). But you? You Count Mangula, are Most Scary. I don't think I'd want to run into you on a dark night!

*kissey face* (in a non-blood sucking sort of way)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
For how long did he chase his monkey tail?? Haaaaa!
Count Mangula!! You look great!
Kisses and hugs

Sam said...

LOL! Excellent costumes. Love the picture of you telling PeeWee off. Priceless face, big man.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

So sorry to hear about Tink...your costumes are awesome! Too bad we don't celebrate Halloween here in Malaysia...it's so hard to get costumes! >.<"

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

Oh Mango you are simply dashing as a vampire puppy!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

behrrake said...

My mom laughed until she cried watching the labradude chase his monkey tail. You DID look thoroughly amused, didn't you. He's good to have around just for the entertainment, isn't he?

So, Count Mangula, just how high can you count anyhow?

Behr Behr :)

monica said...

Count Mangula :o)) you rule!! and make the dracula look dashing:o) Us mastiffs with our hanging lips -and that somewhat french gentleman expression, we tend to sometimes nickname Bundy : " Jean Pierre" said with strong french accent :o)

wally said...

Oh Count Mangula. You are alluring and scary all in one! Fantastic. And the labradork is, well, a dork.

Are you going trick or treating?

wally t.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

lmao count mangula

hero said...

I love your costume, Mango... specially made for both of you, wow. Count Mangula is definitely scary and monkey Dexter is cute too. Is mommy bringing you guys for trick or treating?

Licks, hero

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Mango Man!! That last picture of you would win any costume contest - it has our Mom ROFL.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Wow Mango, Menace will be most afraid of you in your vampire outfit!


Frankie Furter said...

Count Mangula you are truly a magnificent vamp. I laughed and laughed and laughed at PeeWee's video. It sounded like the River Dancers were lurking in the background.
The last pic is just grrrreat. You are such a handsome vampire.

Martha Basset said...

Such cool outfits!! We were dizzy watching Dexter chase his tail!
We hope you come visit us at halloween - you make a great vampire Mango!!
Martha & Bailey xxxx

Frankie Furter said...

Dear PeeWee, you have a real problem. You have TWO tails in a twitch. Poor guy.

achieve1dream said...

I love your costume Mango! You look very handsome!

And thanks for sharing the video of Dex. I needed a laugh. :)


Mack said...

Those are some great costumes!

I am kinda dizzy from watching Dex!

Tucker said...

Cool Costumes. Momma thinks she's funny and says that us doggies are on "Team Mango" instead of "Team Edward" - I don't get it.... something to do with nightime or Twilight... whatever.

Anyway, I'm suppose to be a cow for Halloween.

woof - Tucker

Anne-Kathrine said...

Awesome costumes but have to agree with you Mango, yours is the best by far!! So handsome!

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Mango, you look so handsome as Count Mangola but we must say that PeeWee is a cute, lil' monkey, too. We are wondering why your momma picked those costumes for you and your brofur - what is she trying to tell us, hehehe☺

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Looking most fearsome, Count Mangula! "I don't drink ....... water."

Ludo van Doggy said...

Wow!! Mango you look totally handsome and scary. Only you two has Mum wishing I didn't have such big furs cos she so wants to buy a costume from there. Look what you done!
~lickies, Ludo

Sierra Rose said...

Wow Count! Pee Wee looked most awesome too, in the monkey suit! Loved that you were so calm watching him chase his monkey tail in the vid. I might have a costume fitting myself here today or so....come by for a visit!!!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

brooke said...

great costumes! Poor Pee-Wee.... he doesn't look happy being a monkey! You do make a very convincing vampire! You could be in the doggy version of Twilight!

Eric said...

Crickey Mango. Get back inside and turn out the lights!! Double quick. You're only meant to be out at night time. And keep your peepers open for Pee Weep approaching with wooden stakes.

Worried...Eric xxx

Asta said...

chicamom85 said...

I am so sorry to read about Tink. Peewee you look silly and fun. Count Mangula, I am in a trance just looking at you. I cannot move for I am looking at the most handsome vampire in history. Count Mangula, please bitey me.
licks and sniffs, Sasha

p.s. The costumes are so cool. I love the Mango costume especially. The video of poor Peewee going nuts with Mango watching is priceless. Anne

Rosie said...

Mangul, You must tell the pee wee that you vant to vite his veck.
and stay away from the garlic.

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Great costumes guys!


Peewee is bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-s! Forget the toys.. he'll have hours of fun chasing himself.. mango man.. dude I bet you already sucked the blood out of that lil labradude oliver..

Amber and Nala said...

GREAT costume Mango...it so suits you!


Joe Stains said...

Dang dude you DO look good. Dex sort of looks like one of those flying monkeys from that Wizard of Oz movie.

Biggie-Z said...

That is a very regal and becoming costume, Mango. I'm not sure why Dexter needs an extra tail on his costume though. Maybe cuz it's not so curly?

I don't have a costume. Momma thought I could be a polar bear rug, but then she'd have to dress up like a hunter and stand with her foot on my head while I just lie there. It's not a very social or mobile costume.


ocmist said...

I didn't think you could get any more AWESOME than you already are, but (Wolf whistle) you've done made the females around here swoon! Mom says if she hadn't already done a pic, she'd do one of Count Mangula (and maybe even add some fangs...) BG
