Mischief Monday - A blast from the past

Today's post isn't about the current dogs mischief, rather it is about a dog named after the Norse god of mischief, Loki, and our angel Gemini, and what I am sure they would have called mischief.

The following pictures were taken Loki's last Halloween - 2009. He died in May of 2010. At the time these pictures were taken, he was dying. (For those of you newer to the blog, Loki had immune mediated hepatitis that caused cirrhosis of the liver). Halloween would have been about 4 months after his diagnosis. To give us the extra time with him, he was on a crazy drug cocktail, that we adjusted every 2-4 weeks. Loki took all this like a champ (and for the record his suffering and discomfort were very, very low once he got diagnosed and we started treatment). He was a friendly, joyful, not obedient, pup. To reward this, I decided to dress him up for Halloween. His face (and Gemi's) show how they felt.

  2. OMD! Even when you're poorly, the peeps have to dress you up and take pictures...Sheesh! Hope they got some great treats for that!

  6. Those guys looked SO cute even when they were mad at you for making them dress up! :) Maybe they were just after some extra treats in return? :)

  8. OH what SWEET memories. That is WHY we allow THEM to do the thingys they do to us. PERFECT. Such CUTE pictures of the darling clawstooms.

  9. What adorable babies....and while they don't look too thrilled with the costumes - they do look cute all dressed up! They are so tolerant of our crazy antics - and secretly I think they just love to make us smile!

  11. Ah, so cute! But I have to agree with the idea that costumes should be prohibited on dogs. Now if I could just convince mom!
