Halloween Pawty!

Hi: Me and Teka are going to a Halloween Pawty
at the Tower of London, with Asta, Eric and Lacie,
and lots of other doggles.

I haven't thought much about my costume, but here is my latest candidate for Teka to consider!

I think she should go as Anne Boleyn.

And I have the picture and the music to help her out.

She wants to be a ballerina, or a bride, or a princess! (watch out William!)

I think this is much more interesting, and I have volunteered to help her re-create the "look" in an authentic, period correct manner.



Now to get the full flavor of this, and to see why I think it is so appropriate, you should play the music that I have provided.





See? I knew you would be on my side.

(Muzzer remembers having this song on a 78 rpm record, and says she used to sing along with this Stanley Holloway fellow! My muzzer! Sweet little old lady? I guess she got her wild streak out in her very young days.)

Ohmydog you're so brilliant, Gus! I love the costume and the music. I'd be her Henry VIII. I'm not trying to move in on William's territory, I just enjoy being a bit of a jerk from time to time.

That's a much more creative costume idea, Gus! Keep encouraging her off the beaten path!

Woooo... what a spooky song! Perfect for Howl-o-ween! Mom says she's never heard that song. Something went weird at the end of the song and it went even spookier!

EEEEEK!

I think that has Teka written all over it!

(Yes, we thought of Teka when we saw our new puppy the first time. Will she live up to Teka's reputation? Time will tell...)

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Love ya lots...

Lacie and Co.

Eric said...

Boo! Hoo! My silly pooter won't play the music....but the costume for Teka looksmost pawfect. Though will the chicken soup leak out of her neckie? Suppose thats a good way to diet....hmmm maybe the substantials could all be Anne Boleyns for the pawty, he,he,he!!

Wiry wags, Eric x
