This photo is a throwback to October of 2016 when Ted was chosen as a winner in the Abington Octoberfest doggy costume contest. Did I mention that his picture was in the local paper? Well, let me tell you then, his picture was featured in the local paper! There was also a picture of my daughter adjusting his little hat. She was upset that the photographer got her age wrong. He listed her as being 16 instead of 21. Oh how youth is wasted on the young!
“You’ll appreciate that one day,” I insisted.
Now, I’m not one to go around dressing up my dog for the fun of it, but he is just such a good sport. And the thing is, I did NOT take him out trick-or-treating like this. It was a FUNDRAISER to build an off-leash dog park, so naturally Ted and I had to support the cause. In case you didn’t believe me about him being in the paper, here is proof:
When I told Ted that the photographer labeled his breed as being a poodle, he said it wasn’t a problem and I shouldn’t bother calling the paper to retract their error because poodles are smart breeds. I thought about this, and then acquiesced with his request.
Of course Ted is smiling because this was taken AFTER he won a prize for best costume. Just because he is a dog doesn’t mean he doesn’t know EVERYTHING that’s going on!!!
One of my friends suggested that I send these pics to UPS, but I have no idea how to do that, or why we would. I suppose any business that uses Ted’s picture is bound to see an increase in profits, but how would it benefit Ted? Perhaps we could negotiate a modeling contract to be paid out in milk bones or bully sticks? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Staying pawsitively grateful,
Ted & Ted’s Mom
