Halloween Party

Above, Five of us are in the woods, hunting ducks.

I need your help.   The chauffeur is getting lazy.    You see, we have the Annual Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies Halloween Party coming up this weekend, Sunday the 24th.    Since all of the in crowd will be there, we will be attending in our best costume.   But the chauffeur has not made us a costume this year.   He says he does not have time, he says he is just going to put an orange hunting vest on Bella and I and let us go to the party as Duck Hunters.   Now I have to admit that we are good duck hunters, but I am sure someone has a better idea for our costumes.  Our cousins will be going with their togas on, now that is a real costume.    One year I went as a Golden Angel, they said the costume was fine buy my acting was not that good.   I wonder what they meant by that?

That is not to say that Bella and I are not good duck hunters, below is an older photo of us tearing a duck from limb to limb.
Below, I am fetching my Christmas duck, I always get a duck for Christmas.

So shall we go as Duck Hunters, or something else?

So who can help us come up with a better idea for a costume?

  1. We think duck hunters would be fine, or you could go as a duck.

  2. If I had more time, I khould send woo some Siberian Floof and woo khould go as ME!?!


  3. You could always go as Duck Hunter, secret undercover agent!!

  4. Certainly, you can go as something else, Mogley, you are a writer, so go as a writer. And Bella can go as your secretary.
    I do hope the chauffeur will take pictures. We are looking forward seeing them.

  5. Oh, Mogley, I wish I could be more help! I'm not into wearing stuff like costumes, I guess cause we don't get to do all the fun stuff you Goldens do. Here's something simple for Bella and Nalla at this link
    Then I found these neat collars that even I would wear...hint, hint...
    Sorry Mogley, they are just collars. Guess I'm not much help.
    Good luck and let me know how it all turns out!

  6. how about wire rim glasses and a diaper - GHANDI!

  7. I think duck hunters will be fine. You never want to dress up as something you're not comfortable as.

  8. You would be wonderful duck hunters. We are bad at costume ideas, since Farley won't wear clothes other than bandanas :)

  9. Duck hunter is good - I'm terrible at thinking up costumes. Go as you are - wonderful, beautiful Goldens!!

  10. ooo I always fail at getting the dogs costumes at our house


  11. I bet you would be the only duck hunters there! Don't worry, you are not the only ones - our girl hasn't made our costumes either!


  12. Those dogs must love ducks! They look so proud with their stuffed duck toy :D It is great to see working dogs that are so well looked after. Do you raw feed them or are they on dry dog food? I guess they get a bit of duck now and then. If you feed dry dog food take a look at my dog food coupons blog. I post coupons to help people save money. I just started it so let me know what you think

  13. Duck hunting is a most excellent adventure. We love it - live duck, stuffed duck, yellow plastic duck - just let it be duck.
