Everyone . . . like your dogs? A quick Google search uncovered not one, not two, but hundreds of vampire-inspired slogans from the popular series printed on doggie-sized tees. I've picked this one out as my favorite, it's kinda tongue-in-cheek — or should I say teeth-in-throat? — do you have enough bloody love to share with your furry friends?
I wasn't the only one awed by those dog breed pumpkin patterns — Community Member Yogaforlife made two for herself! Checking out the magazine's choices for inspiration, she created stencils for her Australian Cattle Dog/Smooth Collie mixes, Maia (on the left) and Benny (on the right). Certainly gives me hope that I can carve out some time to create a North-inspired gourd myself!See something cool around town? Send it to our Spotted! group. Plan on dressing up a pet (or done so in the past)? Add it to the Dress Up Extravaganza. Simply have cute animals? There's always Pet of the Day for that
Nuremberg Zoo's Flocke, who turns two this December, departs Deutschland for France come early 2010. Along with Rasputin, the young male bear pal who joined her last year, they move to a zoo in Antibes so their old space in Germany can hold future bears. Don't worry about this matchup, the two bears "get along famously" already.

Pick out tulle fabric at a local craft store, or start with a child-sized skirt, and snip away to fit a tiny doggie waist. Cutting (or using) elastic will require more sewing skills but you can instead hot glue a velvety ribbon to the fabric and tie it under the tummy in a bow.
I was surprised by the number of shops selling a pet-sized tutu (who knew?) so, if you're not lil Miss DIY, buy custom-made dog tutus ($21 and up) for all shapes and sizes —it's "cut in underneath for ease in pottying" — but you're both on your own for the toe shoes.
