My parents really enjoy this holiday, but I am not so crazy about it. Last year I placed in both the contests I was in. No prizes this year. My parents attibute this to me no longer being a puppy, me being kind of ugly, and a massive conspiracy. Lastly, my Seattle Times Dog Photo Contest ends on Tuesday, so get those last minute votes in for me!!!! Remember to vote for the bubble ABOVE my head, I do not want to have a redux of the Butterfly ballot.

I was a Pirate. My parents had this conversation amongst themselves that went: "You are going to be a pirate" and the other one exclaims "but I don't want to be a pirate!!!" and they both laugh. I swear that they are both certifiable.

This is me with my eyepatch. I wouldn't let them keep it on for long but it is not like it affects the vision in that eye or anything.

Here's my good buddy Oliver in a devil costume.

Here's Oliver without his costume, notice how much happier he is.

And here's Oliver being attacked by a four-legged pumpkin. Stay tuned for another post about pug-eating pumpkins later in the week.

Here's an action shot of me and my Daddy's new favorite pug, Rocco. He's five months old, and only about 6 pounds. He was dressed as a Seahawks player.

Here's my Daddy kissing Rocco.

Here I'm investigating a giant spider.

This is Darth Pug. He's a registered Republican.

This is Otis, also dressed as a Seahawks player, and wearing a birthday hat because he will be celebrating his 1st birthday on Tuesday.

This is Annabelle. I think she knows something that I don't (note the wink, she has two perfectly good eyes).

This is Tasmanian Devil Pug, aka Taz. She is not amused.

This is where I stayed most of the time. FYI- those are Daddy's shoes.
Snarf everydog later,

What?!? You didn't win any prizes at the Halloween costume contest? I would check to see if deposits have been made into the Swiss Bank accounts of the judges -- I smell a fix.

But I have voted for you multiple times in the Seattle dog photo contest; if you don't win that contest, I would give up and just move to Australia

Wooooow! A Halloweeeen Party!! Love it! You looked so cute in your costume! Now I'm going to vote 4 you in the Seattle dog photo contest!

Scruffy said...

You look great in your pirate costume. Looks like a great pawty too.

You should have won a prize Winston. You are certainly not ugly! You're a cutie pie pug dog! In a manly way, of course.

Oscar said...

If my parents dressed me up like that, I would have stayed between their legs too. Lucky for me, I'm reusing last years costume in order to make up for this, I get the pug's most awesome costume next year! Btw-we've voted for you a lot in that contest,. Good luck!

Lynn said...

You are toooooo cute AND your parents are weird. However, we will still come to see all three of you this week. Sadly Rollo and Parker must stay and guard the motherland, so they will not be coming along. Besides, your Daddy only wants to take unflattering pictures of Rollo to use as target practice for the rest of the squad.
Maybe we will kidnap you and bring you home to live with us. We are great fun!

Hey Winston - for real, you should have won something in the contest because you have such a great costume!!
And your favourite hangout is MY favourite hangout at pug meetups!! (Except I stand between my mom or dad's legs, not your dad's legs.)
Love Clover xo

Clover said...

oh yeah - I also wanted to point out that you are not ugly!! Silly boy, you are super cute, and don't forget it!
Love Clover xo

Suki Sumo said...

You and your friends are pug-larious. I actually like your costume. My tongue turned purple so mom and dad took my costume off, concerned I was overheating. I am a master of deception. Bwahahaha.

Suki & Joey said...

Well of course he's a registered republican! They are the only people/pugs truly capable of such evil.

Thanks for your comment, Winston. I appreciate the support :)

Puggy kisses

P.S. You are not ugly at all. You're even cuter now than you were when I first laid eyes on you!

Christine & Giggs said...

It looks like you and Rocco are Breakdance Fighting!

LMizzle said...

You should have won "Most Awesome dog" in the contest. Clearly a cat is running that operation!

Pugsley, Buster, Cricket & Daisy said...

You look pretty cool in your costume little pug. Did you bite your daddy for kissing Rocco? He be unfaithful you know.

You are not ugly. You costume was great. It is a conspiracy.


Paula said...

Winston, love your pirate costume. To cute!

We love pug costume parties too.

Melissa (Rocco's Mommy) said...

Thanks Winston! It was very nice to meet you this past weekend! I will have to look into this so-called "Breakdance Fighting", maybe we can go PRO and make tons of money for lots of treats and toys! Sorry about that picture with your daddy, I know he loves you more... he just can't resist my cute puppy-ness, NO ONE CAN! See you later! ~Rocco

Pug Mommy said...

Your pirate costume looked great, even if you didn't win. Maggie still thinks you are cute, even though you no longer have that puppy look to you!
