Picking out the right costume for our pups is never easy for me. I am personally attracted to costumes that emphasize the elongated bodies of the dachshund – like a skunk or caterpillar. However, Rufus won two Halloween costume contest events wearing his Mexican bandito outfit. It was actually one of the very first costumes I bought Rufus. I also think it was one of the best $30 investments I made since I’ve gotten a lot of wear from it. I use it for Cinco de Mayo events as well. So naturally Emily had to carry on the tradition (see below).
Final share today. Rufus was born on Aug 21. 2004; but we brought our baby boy home on Saturday night, Oct. 30, 2004. Rufus has been in our lives and care for 8 wonderful years. Rufus is my favorite Halloween present of all time. I’m not big on celebrating Halloween generally and this year we’re planning to keep it low-key. Nonetheless, Halloween will forever be a special time of year for me. While the occasion is often associated with candy, ghost stories and costumes; it reminds me of the day my life changed forever. It will always be the first day of mine and Rufus’ journey together. Happy Halloween!!!
