Its coming up on my favorite holiday of the year…Halloween! When I think about Halloween I think of kids trick or treating, parties and girls dressed up in a “Sexy/Slutty” version of _________ (Fill in the Blank)
What I don’t think about is Pets in Costume, wanna know why? Because by and large I think that dressing Mr. Snickerdoodles the cat or Elvis your pet chihuahua in a costume is cruel and unusual punishment not to mention its just lame. Don’t get me wrong I’m not some PETA freak who is going to beat you with a bat if I saw this, it just reminds me of how some people anthropomorphize their pets and think of them as their kids…they are NOT. Your pet is an animal and should be treated as such. If you want children have them the old fashioned way or adopt!
Anyway, I thought that dressing your pets in a costumes was pretty lame until I saw THIS little number:
Don’t get me wrong, there is an internal struggle being waged inside my empty little head over how lame I think dressing animals in costumes is VS. the Geek in me that is thinking “…thats *&^%ing AWESOME!”
I have come to terms with the fact that if you HAD to dress your dog up in a Halloween costume…then let it be this AT-AT costume! Of course, the ONLY way I would ever do this is if I was dressed as a Stormtrooper, talk about the ultimate accessory to your Stormtrooper costume. How dope would it be to walk into a party dressed as a Stormtrooper with a little AT-AT on a leash?! Hmmmmm….thats a thought.
<shakes head> What the hell am I thinking?!
At least its not as bad as THIS poor slob, you can see the shame in his eyes:
If you love your pets, leave them with a shred of dignity don’t dress them up in costumes!
