Dog Halloween Costume Contest: Holly As Little Red Riding Hood

Posted: Oct 26 2012

Our dog's name is Holly.  We adopted her from Animal Friends, a no kill shelter in Pittsburgh, about 8 years ago.  As far as they can tell she is a Gordon Setter/Shephard Mix.  Since then she has pretty much become our "little girl."  :)  She is a very calm and loving dog.  Every night when I come home she greets me with one of her babies in her mouth (a stuffed animal), and wags her tail like it's been forever since she's seen me and she missed me SO MUCH!  :)   
She has a fear of other dogs, but we try to take her to a few events throughout the year to get her a little more comfortable around other dogs.  She loves, loves, loves people, and loves the attention she gets.  We decided to dress this year in a theme, but we weren't sure what exactly until we saw a costume of Little Red Riding Hood, and that got our heads spinning.    So we ended up with Little Red Riding Hood, with Grandma and the Big Bad Wolf.  
Thanks for your time, and we hope to hear from you soon!!
Happy Halloween!!  :)

    There’s no doubt who the cutest dog is for Halloween! “Little Red Riding Hood
    You sure are looking good!! You’re everything that a big bad wolf could want”. But that wolf in the picture doesn’t look so fierce so not to worry…stick with gramma! I hear she throws a mean ball!
