Halloween Costumes

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.

Kiska - what do you think
So, Kiska, I was thinking that my Halloween costume should be a wolf. What do you think?

And, of course, a Q-Tip.

    I miss Kiska. She looked so much like our girl we lost this past July. Same “shaggy” coat. I think we’ll still be finding fur for years. 💔

      We’re so glad that post helped. We’ve received lots of comments about it over the years.

      So sorry for your loss.

    Kiska is a favorite of mine. Q just can’t look scary.

    He did so well with you after a very rough start in life.

    (Sylv’s comment from back then really nailed it.)

    Q-tip, you’re such a handsome boy!

    How about a sheep in wolf’s clothing?
