We went to the DROH Halloweener party this afternoon. It was really a lot of fun with tons of dachshunds, a great silent auction and Cindy's usual great food. Yum!

Here are some of the costume pics.

This is a bit hard to see. One dog was dressed in a tropical outfit of a Hawaiian shirt complete with parrot and sunglasses ala Jimmy Buffet and the other was a pirate.

Well, they gave a bunch of specialty prizes and we got first place in the Group category. :scratch: They are a group. It was a lot of fun. We have an :angel: who donates heavily to DROH and has the Halloweener at her beautiful house every year. She does all the food (and it's great) and does a great silent auction. We had to keep Scooter away from the pool though. I was afraid he'd decide to take a 'dip' :shocked:

Sort of. I bought regular hats and made bigger brims for them. Then I added the feathers and hat bands and pinned the side up. I think they look very dashing in them. :hearts: :hearts:

You are living the dream.

Well, it may be my dream, but I don't think it was their dream. Trying to keep 3 hats on 3 dogs for any length of time was almost impossible. They hated those hats. :mad3:
