Halloween Dog Photo Costume Contest Winner is.....

I am excited to annouce the winner of the Halloween Dog Photo Contest and share their great entry.

Rubin!!  I also wanted to share the great story behind the winners costume.

"Captain Olivia and her Pirate pal, Scooby, have discovered the buried treasure! Olivia is a 9 year old, Chocolate Labrador Retriever. When not looting pirate ships for treats and toys, Olivia works hard as a Service Dog for her mom. She is loyal and devoted like most dogs, but is also attentive to my medical needs. 

Olivia's costume was handmade with love by her mom and grandmaw. Olivia's costume is lightweight and non-constricting. She is able to walk and sit in it. Olivia really enjoyed the process of creating this costume. Each time we had to tailor it to fit her body she received a small treat. She has really "grown" to love it. We started with a cardboard box, poly-fiber fill, contact paper, children's clothes from the local Good Will Store, a Scooby-Doo doll, and lots of embellishments from JoAnne Fabrics. The entire costume had to be altered to fit Olivia and her needs to be mobile. Scooby's arms were lengthened, clothes were cut and re-attached, and then altered again. It was an enjoyable and memorable experience my mom, Olivia and I will always have. We took it step by step and managed to not get stressed out. We just had fun creating what we feel is the funniest and cutest Halloween costume of 2012."

Thank you everyone for entering.
