Yappy Hour and Costume Contest at Evens Coffee Co.

These first photos are of us trying on some of our costumes at home. The Yappy Hour also had a costume contest so we wanted to come prepared.

This soccer ball cap is Hootie's and they thought it was fun to have me try it on. Why do they get such laughs out of these things??

The folks decided this Bono vest fit me best, so this is what I wore to the costume party.

Actually this vest was pretty cool. Once I got used to it. At first I tried to roll it off!

Here's Hootie wearing one of the outfits that Mommy rejected. He loves his sailor hat. Can you tell?

This was another outfit that Mom rejected. Daddy said Paddington Bear wears a yellow raincoat.

The Bassets didn't dress up for the occasion. They decided to go to the party as dogs.

This Golden guys name was Elvis. Cool cape!

Here I am socializing...This was before I discovered the dog biscuit lady.

This big white guy's name was Dieter. Doesn't sound very French to me! He was a nice fellow.
I could hardly believe this is a devil dog. Way too sweet for that.

Hootie got some excellent butt sniffing time in when Dad left him off his leash. Poodle butt. Nice!

Isn't she a cute little ladybug? Can't remember her name, but her Momma was nice.

The butterfly is Miss Bella, Dr. Dre's girlfriend. She is part Airedale, so I'll call her sister Bella.

The Panhandle Animal Shelter benefited from the hoomans imbibing in wine and beer. Great!

Bella got caught in the gate and our daddy helped rescue her ~ that's his cute hooman butt!!

Dr. Dre was the one who told us about this party and we were so happy to see him again.

I, Baby Rocket Dog, didn't really have a costume. Mom said I was Sonny of Sonny & Cher, but I didn't have a wig to go with my vest, so no one knew who I was supposed to be. I spent most of my time hanging around the wine lady, 'cuz she had dog biscuits and if I sat and stared at her she'd give me some.

Here's a good shot of Hootie in his prison garb. The red, lighted collar was a last minute addition.

Here is the winners circle: The Oreos (2 black Labs and a yellow Lab) dressed as a singing group from the 80's won "Most Creative". Dr. Dre won for "Best Dressed". And Hootie won for "Best Bling"!! The prize for each was a nice bag of coffee beans. Do you think we'll ever see them?? I think not.

And here is Dr. Dre and Hootie basking in the lime light. I must say they were pretty cute.

Sure hope you all enjoyed the night at the Yappy Hour as much as we did! Have a great week end.

Smooches from pooches,

Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie

What a great party and congrats on the prize winning! Looks like everyone had a great time - I too would hang around the dog biscuits lady. I love the photo of you using mind control staring techniques to get treats - all humans succumb to this...

Lots of licks

We love your Bono vest, Baby Rocket! It's really sharp and Hootie looks adorable as a sailor! What great costumes everyone has!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Martha and Bailey said...

What great pics of your Yappy Hour!
We loved seeing everyone dress up but we with those other bassets - we mean what is this about!
Humans are so easily amused!!!
Hootie does look sweet as a sailor mind you - we think it is the jaunty little hat that just sets him off to perfection!
You really suited the Bono outfit!!! Very cool.
Maybe next year we will try dressing up but this year it all seemed way too stressful.
Have a great weekend.
love and kisses

I liked sailor Hootie! So many interesting costumes. Looks like a great time. But let's just say I am glad those things don't come in my size.

We're not sure who was having more fun! The dogs or their people. It looks like everyone had a great time! AND it looks like Panhandle Animal Shelter benefited too! All the better!

Happy Halloween, Jailbird and Bono!

Hey Baby Rocket and Hootie!!

Nice to meet you both. Poor you guys, you got dressed up too..... but at least you guys look good dressed up!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh the things we must endure..We feel your pain there Hootie...Love and kisses A+A


I like the sailor look best.. but who am i to judge. Why didn't mom tell the truth. The reason you sat by the wine lady wasn't for the biscuits.. ahem.
Fun times.

Sherry said...

We vote for the sailor costume, too; but the Rocket Vest is waaaay cool. All you need is a pair of goggles and you could be a pilot.

Doctor Dre said...

I'll post some of the picture dad took in a next day or 2.

Eric said...

Wow, wish we had Yappy hours like yours. Hold the costumes for me though please. You two looked pawsome all dressed up. But Hootie got a bag of COFFEE BEANS as a prize? Geez. With his perfect prison get up he should of got a "get out of jail free" card at least.

Wiry wags n kisses Eric xxx
