The folks at Wayfair.com sent along this lobster dog costume, and whoo boy! Let me just say: A costume THIS cute for big dogs! I never thought I’d see the day!
It fit Lucas (80 lbs) and Emmett (65 lbs with a big old barrel chest)!
Here’s a little bit of the fun we had with the costume.
Lucas from the side. (Interestingly, I snapped this one with my cell phone to post to Instagram, and the color came out truer than it did with our regular camera. This costume is definitely red like a lobster, not orange. Of course, it didn’t help that the walls and floor of this room are orange…)
Here’s the back view of Emmett. I had to get this pic because I just ADORE the little flipper on the bottom.
And Emmett posing for the side view. How cute is that claw?!
FYI – Emmett will be wearing this one for the big day! While Lucas is a good sport about costumes (costumes = cheese, so he’s a very happy boy for short spurts), Emmett loves costumes. They bring him treats and tons more attention than he usually gets. So he will have the pleasure of being a Halloween lobster.
Thanks to Wayfair.com for sending us this lobster and proving that big dogs CAN get cute costumes!
Tell me: Does your dog enjoy dressing up? Do you have a costume lined up for the holiday? What will your pup be?
