Google Image Search: Word & Picture #196

Today's Word:
pug costume

Today's Picture:

Why do people who own pugs go crazy? Before we got PugPuggy, I was a perfectly well adjusted human being. Now, I am crazy. Here is proof:

Yes, I dressed my dog in a dinosaur costume. Then we took her to the Austin Pug Club's annual Halloween costume contest. We did not compete, but I saw a couple of costumes I loved, including this four-legged guy:

... yes, a pug in a Michael Jackson costume. Complete with one sparkly glove over a paw. So awesome. At least I was not the craziest person there.

Originally, we were going to dress PugPuggy up like a banana. Here is a picture of her original costume...

... but something was weird about this costume...

... something was very weird about this costume.

At first, we could not put our finger on what it was. Then we figured it out. PugPuggy looked like a Klu Klux Klansman. Take another look:

PugPuggy is thinking, "white power" in this costume.


Yes, sorry, PugPuggy. I know.

So we returned the banana costume and dressed PugPuggy up like a dinosaur. My bad.


In Summary: I am crazy, PugPuggy's dad was a black pug, klansmen wear banana costumes.

Confession: I never got the whole pug thing... until I got pugged. Now I have pug with a blog and am one of *those* pug people.

I also bought my pug a banana costume for Halloween. Thought it made him look like a garden gnome (or, as you observed, a klansman!) so we exchanged it for a lobster :)
