I had made my Betty a pilgrim costume (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417134.msg4933793#msg4933793) for Thanksgiving last year and for Halloween this year I gave her a scarlet letter so she can be "Bester Prynne"!  She's not THAT kind of bad girl so the letter A wasn't quite right, but a scarlet B for the Sin of barking did seem right.



Something about her bonnet made her think she could feign deafness; had I known I might have made her a scarlet "FD."  Sigh.



And the little touch that means so much, the big brass buckles on her "boots"!  They actually have a Velcro closure in the back.



She's such a good sport and was rewarded handsomely with delicious treats.

I had to bribe her the WHOLE TIME! [shakes head]  I don't know what I was thinking going out there a) w/o a human assistant and b) w/o any treats in my pocket. Normally, B is a great sitter, but she was "FD" until I brought out some snacks.

Oooohhhh, the cuteness!

My cat said " Don't even think of it". Your dog seems very well behaved. You should take her to an Halloween costume contest.

That is a look of regret for all her sinning.

She's a good girl, but she isn't always "very well behaved" that is for sure. I bet she would not be a fan of hanging around a bunch of other dogs while her ears are trussed up.  Almost guaranteed she would commit the Sin of Jumping (J was a close runner up in the selection of scarlet letters).
