While the horror of the ongoing government shutdown continues, the Halloween season is underway--just go to any store, it might as well already be 31 October. My rabbits will be grateful for the likelihood that their mom will not succumb to the temptation to dress them up for Halloween this year, given the tight financial situation she finds herself in from being laid off. It has always been a moral dilemma for me, to dress up the rabbits or not, and yet who can resist cooing over their cute little faces peering out from their little costumes?
2010 - Cinnamon as a pumpkin
Admit it--doesn't my Cinnamon look so cute in her pumpkin outfit? When I took a walk up to my Dunkin Donuts the other day, I could see in the window of the PETCO Unleashed store next door a whole rack of costumes for little dogs. For a fleeting moment, I contemplated going in, just to look around, or so I always tell myself. Luckily I did not have either checkbook or credit card with me, only the cash for the coffee, so I resisted. But I feel I should do something for my sweet fur kids this Halloween to make it special--I know, as if they would really care. Face it, we do these cutesy wutsey things for us, not for our rabbits. That is only human. I just feel an urge to make this All Hallow's Eve a special one for Cinnamon and Benjamin.
