  • Dog’s Name: Butter “We tend to not dress him up as extravagant things because he hates it, but he doesn’t have a lot of fur and he gets really cold in the winter especially because we rescued him from the south. So he refuses to go out on walks unless we put a sweater on him.” - Julia Tompkins '20

  • Dog’s Name: Willow “She’s dressed up as a lion mane on her head because we thought it was cute. [We did it because it was] marching band related. Our theme this year has to do with courage and lions and we thought she’d look kind of cute as a lion.” - Morgan Rollins '20

  • Dog’s Name: Georgia Rose “My sister and I started dressing Georgia up when we first got her because we were little and we thought it was fun to dress her up like a doll. Over the years we kept doing it because we’d find funny costumes. She hates [getting dressed up] so much, she shakes and won’t move with the costumes on. I have to bribe her with treats and food to get her stay. But she looks so funny dressed up that even if it’s only for a couple of minutes, it’s worth it.”
