We won!!

Roxie and I won first place in the Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest. Yep. The judges were quite impressed that we wore matching costumes, and who doesn't love the 80s?

(in case you're wondering, I made her legwarmers out of the fingers of gloves!)

The event went really well - and there is still time to bid on a dog house, the auction ends at 5pm this Saturday (the 23rd). You can check out photos and current bids here.

It's been awhile!

But instead of telling you what's been going on for the past few months, I'm gonna tell you about what's happening tonight!

Camp Barkeley HOWL-O-WEEN tonight from 6-8pm at the Mall of Abilene. We'll have photos from 6-8pm and a costume contest at 7pm. Roxie and I are SUPER pumped. All proceeds go to Camp Barkeley. I haven't talked much about the dog park here on the 'ol blog, but it's been a long hard year of fundraising. We started this project in August of last year, and I just can't believe how far we've come in such a short time!! Our Grand Opening will be November 20th at 10am. Can.Not.WAIT.

I decided that I'd dress up in Flashdance style, but I wasn't sure what Roxie was going to go as - and then I thought, surely it wouldn't be too hard to dress her in 80s stripper/welder attire as well, so....

I made her a little grey sweatshirt out of a pair of girl's sweatpants, and (since she's super tiny after her trip to the salon yesterday) her legwarmers are made from the fingers of gloves! I cannot wait to show you how she looks!! But for now, a photo of the outfit will have to suffice:

And here's mine - and imagine big curly hair - and yes that's an IKEA mirror that I have still yet to put up on the wall, seriously. I will one of these days, OK?

If you aren't busy tonight, bring your pups and come out and support Camp Barkeley Dog Park!
