Happy Halloween

Polo would like to wish my blog readers a very Happy Halloween! He told me this morning just how sad he was not to have a costume like all his other dog friends, so I ran out and bought him what could very well be the worst costume ever created. Really.


Reason number 8,492 why I should be banned from motherhood. If left to my own devices, I might buy my future child a suit that would cause blindness. I rock.

Amanda Lachapelle - Hey Jasmine - I should post the photo of Freddie - my Golden Retriever dressed up as a court jester - He was quite cute but very upset that the children collecting candy wouldn't let him jump on them :)  11.04.08 - 7:16am
Korey - Well I don't dress up my dog, mainly because he's big, but I can be found telling people things that he tells me. In fact, I don't dress him up because he told me he doesn't like it. :)  11.03.08 - 2:35pm
