Happy Halloween!

To kick start the Halloween season I stumbled across a Halloween costume contest on Twitter that a company called Furry Twang was having and decided to try our luck and send in my favorite picture of Red sporting his Underdog costume.

And wouldn't you know it, he won!!! He won a new Halloween themed collar from Furry Twang!!! Not long after I found out he won, the new collar arrived in the mail, and you know what this meant...photoshoot!!

Yes, you are reading that right, his new collar says, "Trick or Treat I Lick Feet," and it is just perfect for him!

(And if you haven't already, you need to check out Furry Twang's site to see all their wonderfully hilarious southern sayings inspired dog gear! I am definitely seeing an "I eat grits" collar in Red's future! Haha!)
It appears though that Red, always the comedian, took his new collar's wise words to heart, and quite literally.

The poor guy suffers from seasonal allergies where he licks his feet until they're almost bare. It's probably the worst they've ever been, but with the help of stinging nettles and the occasional Benadryl he seems to have moved past the worst of it. Now we start the long process of regrowing all that hair on his little feetsies.

Of course it wouldn't be a Big Red photo shoot without some bloopers, so I leave you all with the silly outtakes and wish all of you guys a safe and Happy Halloween!!

::sniff sniff::

Is I detect a hint of...yes, it is! I smell cookies!

Quit holding out! Just insert those cookies right here and no one gets hurt!

 I tried to tell Red that dogs who get busted for digging big holes in the backyard while in search of grubs do not get cookies, but he wasn't buying it! Ha!

Yeah, right lady! Just fork over the cookies, mmmkay!

This whole conversation really made me reconsider how smart it was to teach Red the speak command, he's just too smart for his own good and is officially using his training against me! Hahaha!
