It was our first time to join a show like this one. My husband hesitated at first but since we had no other plans for Halloween, he eventually gave me a "Yes". I was really excited that we started our preparation for Mhershey's costume 2 weeks before the event.
We agreed on making our sweet golden retriever a "rotting-dog-zombie".
Every detail was made from scratch. A lot of newspapers, wires, typewriting papers, glues, paints, food colors, coffee powder, and gummy worms were used to achieve Mhershey's "rotting-dog-zombie look". We even bought a toy dagger to complete the "bloody look" on her head.
The day of the dog event came. My husband wasn't able to sleep because he had to give Mhershey a bath at 3am (it would always take him 2 to 3 hours to bath and groom her). Her complete look and costume also took hours to complete. The event was scheduled to start at 10:30 in the morning, we got there at exactly 10:15 am.
The show started and there were like 9 to 10 participants. My favorite participant, who eventually became one of my closest friends, and his Chinese-Crested got the 1st prize.
Hey, we also got a special award! :)
All in all, we had a lot of fun. It was also our chance to meet a few other dog owners in Tarlac. I'm sure Mhershey, who suddenly had an unusual stage fright, had a good time as well.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
