Total Basset Case: For Halloween Floyd was...

Nov 1, 2012

For Halloween Floyd was...

Eeyore!
 By unanimous vote (and his mama's favorite choice), Eeyore was the obvious winner.

The costume was very easy to make and he actually tolerated it very well.
 I purchased a kids tank top and shorts from the thrift store.
It was quite funny to stand in the store and think to myself, 'will this tank top and these shorts fit my basset hound?'
  I went with the tank top because I felt like last year the t shirt really impeded his elbows.
Just like last year, I measured and cut a hole for his tail (quite possibly the funniest part).
 I then took a hair tie and some pink ribbon I had to make the bow.
I bought the black hair at Hobby Lobby and hot glued it to the bow.
For the head pieces I used a sweat band (like you wear when running) and hot glued hair to the band as well.
I wrapped one side around his ear and it stayed pretty well. 
Overall, it was a SUPER easy costume to make and I really do think he liked it! 

Besides Eeyore, I really think that Maddie (and Kait) knocked it out of the park.
I mean, could she be cuter? And that tutu, just get out of town!! 

Hope you and your family had a great Halloween!
We still have far too much candy left over...I am happy to get rid of it if anyone needs some!

GET OUT OF HERE!! You are so sweet! I am dying of cuteness here over our pups. Could we be any luckier? PS, Floyd's costume has been my favorite so far and I have shared it with nearly every member of my family (who loves dogs as much as I do).

Your pup is adorable!! I'm obsessed with hounds, especially of the squishy Bassett variety {I have a Beagle-Lab mix, but her paws and ears aren't nearly as awesome as Floyd's!}

Your basset hound is so adorable! I just got my first basset hound (and puppy ever!) three weeks ago. She's now 11 weeks old and I was wondering if you had any advice about raising a basset hound in particular :) I'd appreciate it!
