Blog has Gone to the Dogs...

Yesterday was another day at home with my son and he's driven me to the dogs... he enjoyed Target's Treasures for Less Pet Collection 2008... costumes for pets... and I thought it would be fun to match them up with Pottery Barn's kid costumes... dress up your kids like your dog...
My son's favorite was the hot dog...
I'm partial to the bee...

Speaking of dogs... do you have a favorite dog? book? movie? song?

I think my favorite dog is Snoopy. Favorite dog book "Harry the Dirty Dog." Favorite dog movie "Lady and the Tramp." Favorite dog song Donny Osmond singing "Puppy Love."

Too cute for words - I cant imagine trying to dress up our enormous old girl, Nellie!

bmommy said...

I love the hot dog outfits! I used to have a little Terrior who would lay flat on her back streatching her legs out when you told her to do the hotdog. Dogs really are remarkably smart creatures :)

Mojito Maven said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!! Yep, those are all mojitos in my header...mojitos can come in any flavor you can imagine, but the progonal is rum, lime, and mint.

Also, seeing as though my husband and I are going as ketchup and mustard for Halloween, I like the hot dog :)

That Girl Designs said...

What a fun post! Love your painting of the little pup watching out the window for his master.

MIMILEE said...

OH, Fifi, you do have a way to delight! Great post today! Loved it all!............

Jude said...

Norman Alexander is of course my favorite real life dog. But I too hold Snoopy close to my heart. I have my original snoopy stuffed animal to this day. I am not a collector and I hate clutter but this is one stuffed animal I can't let go off. For my bday I was so happy to receive the Schultz biography,very interesting man.

Janet said...

Hope your son is feeling better.

I forgot about Harry the Dirty Dog, that was one of my daughters favorites when she was little.

"Puppy Love", too funny, much more mellow than the "Who Let The Dogs Out" that was popular when my daughter was listening to pop music.

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

oh how funny with the costumes. Our neighbor buys sweaters and coats for their Whippet as she gets soooo cold.
I LOVE this painting. I love my Dog, Annie, who is a red and white boarder collie. She's so smart it is scary.
How about the song by Patty Paige .. How much is that doggy in the window.? :))

Cute costumes, Fifi.

My favorite dog is Molly, our black labrador retriever. My favorite movie dog is Asta, from The Thin Man series.

A Day That Is Dessert said...

hahaha - very funny! If I had a dog I'd dress him for halloween. Sadly our cat would come unglued if we tried it. Love the PBK costumes - just got my 4 year old the shark costume there.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog yesterday - please come again!

Fun post. Super cute costumes.

Tracey said...

CUTE post!!

Millie said...

This is scary stuff Fifi - the matching outfits I mean!!

As a lover of the giant breeds my favourite dog movie has to be Beethoven. Shocking movie, but the big, drooling St. Bernard doggie star won my heart.

Sandra Ree said...

I'll have to show my daughter this post, she will just love it! And my fave doggy is Snoopy too of course!

Mrs. Buck said...

I love the matching dog/kid costumes! I dont have either to dress up at this point - so I'll have to store these ideas away for a few years from now!

nikkicrumpet said...

OH MY GOSH...I gotta get that "hot dog" outfit for Crumpet....WAY TOO CUTE! It's amazing the things we do for and to our furry friends.
I just did a post about this...but I had to come and thank you here too. I got my note cards and book mark..and the sweet extra bookmark you so kindly included. Fifi...I AM SO THRILLED with everything. They are even more beautiful in person! I just feel stupid for waiting so long to finally order them. I know for sure I couldn't possible write in anything that gorgeous...so I'll be shopping for the perfect frames. But I can't wait to go out in public and read my book with my oooh so chic bookmark out for everyone to drool over! Thanks again!

Bella Casa said...

I love Snoopy, too! Grew up with his holiday cartoons :)

There are some "Fergus" books out and he is just the cutest dog. We have the book and a stuffed Fergus dog, heart them!

Never saw a dog movie I didn't like :)

And for a song, I'd have to go with Who Let The Dogs Out? lol ;)

Saw you on An Insprired Room.

Hooked on Houses said...

Too funny! Love the dog and kid costume match-ups. My daughter loves those doggy costumes so much she was begging me to buy one, even though we don't HAVE a dog. She thinks it would be perfectly reasonable to then buy a dog to go with the Halloween costume. :-)

All-time favorite Disney movie: "Lady and the Tramp"! Now my daughter loves it, too. -Julia

Lori Lynn said...

Too Cute! I have two Boston Terriers (like the ones in these photos) always dressing them up, especially for Halloween. Love these pics.

Alfie would be first dog love, movie would be Old Yeller(a throwback!). Alfie is so fearful I am going to put him in a costume. Heh, Heh, Heh.
