GRRR Halloween Party

Above, Bella and I are getting our costumes on, getting ready for the judging parade.

Today was party day!   Of course when you are a party hounds like Bella and I, almost every day is party day.   Today was a little bigger party, Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies hosted their annual Halloween Party.   Bella and I went as Duck Hunters.   We would have won if we had just entered as ourselves, but you know how humans are, they have to embellish greatness, but the costume would not stay on very well.  But you can see we had some very good competition.

Some enjoyed wearing costumes more than others.
Below, part of the parade line up.

If you wanted to buy something with a picture of a Golden Retriever on it, it was all there.  They had claw and nail trimming and all sorts of extra things to do.   Bella and I had our nails clipped and hair trimmed. 
Several of our former foster brothers and sisters were there.   Last year Rusty Muffin was adopted at the party, she came back to see us this year.   She says she is doing very well, she is happy with her new home and hopes that many more homeless dogs will find their homes like she has.   The best reunion was with Stella.   She had only been gone for 20 days, and she was excited to see us.   Of course, Stella is always excited to see anyone or do anything.   She is always excited.   She greeted Molly and Piper and their family.  She bounced around us a lot and it was great to see her doing so well.  

Below is Stella, at speed, greeting us with big, fast, circles.

The guards were kept busy at the food tent, keeping hungry Golden's at bay and out of the kitchen.
One of the newest fosters, Moose is well named.  He had a good time getting acquainted.  He made friends with everyone.   To help raise money for the rescue, we may adopt Moose out by the pound. 
 Nala did not take part in the costume part, but she had a good time exploring and making friends.  Many people said that Nala looks great, she is trim and her new coat is very pretty. 

A good time was had by all, sorry you could not be there, but we will see you next time.  

Mogley G. Retriever


  1. How wonderful Mogley! You and Bella look just great as duck hunters. And all the other costumes are so imaginative too. We are glad that everybody thinks Nala looks good -- she deserves it.

    Many thanks to the chauffeur for taking the pictures.
