So, it's not exactly the Halloween time of year, but it will be soon. 

My pup Nikita has always been a little crazy and hard to handle, so I call her "Devil Dog."  Of course, that meant I had to make her a devil costume for Halloween.

It started out as a supercheap doggie shirt like this (it could be plain, color coordinated, whatever):



and I added devil horns and tail similar to these

If you keep your eyes out, you can find child-sized horns/tails for $1 at Target, Kmart, etc. 

Then remove the plastic headband from the horns (just snip a hole in one end and pull the headband out).  This can be tied or velcro-ed under your pup's chin. 

Then I stitched the tail to the base of the doggie t-shirt.

Now I have a real little Devil Dog



Oh yeah, since it's a toddler/child costume, everything is pretty much doggie safe.  The dyes are non-toxic, no small parts, etc.  Nikita is willing to wear it for a whole evening and even falls asleep in her t-shirt.

There is not many things that make me laugh as hard as a dog in clothing. And a 'Devil Dog' costume is even more hilarious...for some reason when you said Devil Dog I imagined those chocolate and white icing ding-dong type of things and that made me laugh even harder to imagine a little dog all dressed up as a confection..ha!

Ooh, don't think I haven't thought about doing a Hostess (or is it Little Debbie?) Devil Dog costume!!! 

I've also thought about doing a bat costume for her.  C'mon, with those ears?  She'll be a natural!
