In early October, we had our normal weekend meetups. But the most exciting event was when we went to Dog-O-Ween held at Magnolia Manor Park. I had never heard of this park before, let alone taken the dogs there. It was quite a nice area. They're working on developing the park and adding an off-leash area. It might be a new place for meetups!
Since it was October in Seattle, it rained the entire morning (surprise, surprise). I arrived a little early, so the boys and I waited in the car until we saw some friends. It gave me a chance to put the boys in their costumes and to observe some of the other dressed-up doggies. Some people got very creative, and some people had store-bought costumes like us. We finally braved the weather when our buddies, Janis, Lindsay, Jessica, and Deb showed up.
There were some booths set up, so we wandered around a bit. And then we turned around and went back the other way. And then we visited the booths again. It got a little boring. There was a little mix-up with the time of the costume contest, so we had to wait a few hours. It did give me time to take lots of pictures, though!

Our friends, Tag and Amber, won Funniest Costume. They were dressed up as Hugh Hefner and a Playboy Bunny. Tag was Hugh in a smoking jacket and pipe, while Amber strutted her stuff in a bunny costume, complete with fake boobs! A shout-out to Lindsay for making the costumes by hand!

I felt really bad for the dogs to be out in the rain, but we made it up to them! (Can you find all 4 doxies in the stroller?!)
