Examining the Possibilities

As you know, mom and I are arguing over me wearing a Halloween costume.  I am willing to wear one for the Howl-o-ween Ball but nothing more!  So I agreed to try some one.  I already showed you the Bee but will show it again in case anyone missed it.

Mom thought it looked really cute on me but I don't think it captured my machoness and I want my date Lily to think I'm sort of macho as opposed to the cuddly love bug that mom says I really am.  Again, I hate wearing clothes.  I hate the feel of something on my back.  And when I said that to mom, she did this . . .

Yup, can you believe she did that to me???  I had to get that off fast!  But mom doesn't give up easily.

And of course Stanley, being the clown that he is, doesn't really care.

But mom always likes us to match . . . like we're twins or something . . .

How will I survive this?

Murphy & Stanley


  1. You will suwvive and yoow machoness shines thwoo even when you look like a dawling cuddly bug..I love all of them
    smoochie kisses

  2. You look super cute, I mean macho, in that cow costume.

  3. We feel your pain doods. Worse thing is after Halloween they will be digging out those blooming antlers again. BOL be afraid be very afraid. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. I'm with you Murphy...I don[[t like clothes either and I put my paw down this clothes for me...I'm handsome enough in my furs...I do let Momz do the photofun thing cause it makes her happy so I will be decked out for the Ball

  5. You are surviving much better than I am, my friend! How did you manage to try all those on? You good sport, you look mighty fine in them all.

  6. We are laying on ours backs kicking our feet laughing really hard. One time when our grandmonster boy was 2 he also had to wear a bee costume and mom has a picture of him looking really mad. WE thinks they are all really cute. Gussie suggests tho for impressing the girls yu may want to change into a ninja master.

  7. Oh Dood, I feel your pain, at least it'z not a nurses outfit like my Humom stuck me in Bawahwhhahhwha xxooxxxx
    pe-ez That wood bee'z funny though Bawahwhhahhwhaaaa

  9. Wow that was like a costume fashion show!!!! We kinda like the monkey one
    Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  10. We're SO not into the costume thing! Luckily Dad supports our view, so we aren't forced to endre the costume thing! But we think you both look, uh, totally macho. Yep. That's it. Totally macho! ;-)

  11. WE think you look TOTALLY MACHO in ALL the Clawstooms... You GOTTA be MACHO to pull off the WEARING of the CLAWSTOOMS every year. Girrrrrrl dawgs don't KNOW how lucky THEY are ... they can Wear ANYTHINGY and look... GRRRRRRReat.
    Just Count your blessings that you didn't have to wear... A TUBE STEAK and BUN clawstoom like WE did.

  12. Yeesh....there's a WHOLE 'nuther week to go! We hate wearing ANYTHING on us. We will wear a bandanna sometimes. Don't let them make you wear anything on your weekly run!!!

    We do like the cow. Stanley looks like he's being eaten by a penguin!!! Bwahaahaa!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  13. Oh I feel for you. Why last year I was a donkey and now this year a pumpkin. When will I ever get to be the super hero dog. But I honestly like the cow, why you could go around say eat more tree rats.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  14. Murphy, you make that cow look good, but Stanley you need something bigger, how about a horse, then Dad can go with you guys as Old MacDonald, EiEiOh, Barharhar

  16. So which one did you pick out? My mom is making me a bumble bee costume and she already finished Millie's Halloween ball dress.


  17. Our Lady doesn't give us a choice . . . you are lucky that you get that. Lee and Phod

  18. Just be thankful it is only one day and in another week will almost be over. Today hubbs and I were in HomeGoods and I saw a headband with Reindeer antlers on it-I remarked we could get it for Hunter for his Christmas Card. Well, hubby thought that idea was ridiculous. I think you are both so handsome-no matter what you are wearing.

  19. You guys look PAWsome!!!! It's like looking in the mirror!!! :)

  20. I always dress Rocco as a football player, because he likes to punt his football!

  21. Murphy, I know this because I'm dating your brother but Moo is not what you are really saying in that photo. I know this is a G rated blog so you couldn't really put up what was coming out. I can't wait until the Howloweenie ball!

  22. Yah, I go through the same stuffs here. I may luck out and not have too much cuz Mom is gonna be in Texas over Halloween!! Whew!!


  23. Too right Murphy, NONE of those costumes match you machines. Naked is the only viable option, for sure. That or perhaps you would like to come and visit my household for the next couple of weeks - we have (unofficially) declared a Halloween free zone...
    Toodle pip!

    1. Drat autocorrect. Macho-ness NOT machines!

  24. Squeeeeeee you looks so cute! I love the Cow! I have had the same problem with my Pawrents, they like to dress me up, it can be both embarassing and so much fun! Such a mix of emotions! Love and Licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxx

  25. Halloween costumes are never an issue for me. While my mom person would love to dress up me & the cats, my dad person has a "no costumes on the animals" rule. It's a relief. I'm sorry about the costume, but I know Lily will love you no matter what.
