They say all good things must come to an end, and that's certainly true for my howl-o-wiener blog posts. Today is the final post of Halloween doxie costumes. If no one else has enjoyed these cute and unique costumes, I certainly have!

Before I forget, I probably won't be posting next week because (1) the grandchildren will be spending a few days with us (yay!), and (2) I must complete my manuscript of A DACHSHUND'S MERRY-GO-ROUND LIFE, Book 5. It is due to the publisher on Nov. 20 for the Nov. 30 release! Yikes!

I have two more chapters to write, then I must do edits and format the document for e-book publication. Enough. You aren't here to read about that--you're here to see doxie photos! So, without further ado, here they are:

Kangaroo, koala bears, and doxies, oh my!

Minion doxies

Skunk doxie

Per my usual custom, here's an extra howl-o-wiener doxie in honor of Friday:

Not sure what this one is--perhaps a celebrity incognito?
HAPPY HALLOWEEN and have a great weekend!

"No tricks--I'd just like treats, thank you very much!"

Wow! Halloween is this Saturday!  Are you ready?

These doxies certainly are:

Handyman ready for work:  "If I had a hammer . . ."

New sheriff in town: "Keep those guns holstered, cowboys"

Sherlock doxie: "Evidence, Watson, evidence"

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!

Happy Monday, doxie lovers (although maybe "happy" and "Monday" don't often go together, LOL!).

Halloween is quickly approaching--our grandchildren have some fabulous costumes beautifully crafted by a talented family friend.  I will happily post pictures of them after Halloween. Just call me "the doting grandma."

Here are today's doxie howl-o-wiener picks:

Retro dawg - wonder if she minds the poodle skirt??

Have you decided on a Halloween costume for your doxie yet?  As I've said, Duke will not tolerate any kind of clothing or hats, but he will wear his collar.  Oh well!

Here are today's cuties:

"Take two aspirin and call me in the morning"

"I'm a daredevil just like Evel"

My, October is marching along, isn't it?  Won't be long before the BIG day, so I'd better get some more of these doxie costumes posted! 

Hope you had a great weekend. Our town's fall festival was scheduled, but it got rained out.  The grandkids were disappointed, because a family friend had made them some terrific costumes for the costume contest . . . we had fun eating out and shopping, anyway. They'll get to wear those new costumes at other events.

Here are today's really cute howl-o-wiener doxie costumes:

Off to catch those bad guys!

The quintessential doxie hot dog: one of my favorites

Ketchup and mustard, anyone?

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em.  Enjoy!

It's amazing how many different types of doxie costumes there are.  I had no idea that doxie lovers were so serious about dressing their dawgs--not just for Halloween, but for everyday life: pajamas, birthdays, other holidays--you name it.

Here are today's Howl-o-wiener picks:

"Git a long, little doggie"

"Am I dragon, or am I draggin'?"

"Am I mouse or elf?  You be the judge"

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em.
