Pet Costume Contestant No. 10

Ubu is a six year old Cocker Spaniel. His photos where submitted by his owner, Tina of Beansie Babbles. Ubu is dressed as Frankenstein, albeit he's anything but a monster. Thank you so much for letting Ubu play along in my Pet Costume Contest. "Franken-pooch" I was told they did not own, nor name him as a puppy, but the family got him when he was already three years old. He came from an abusive home and his name is from the TV show that ends with: "Sit Ubu, Sit." Tina continues to say: "...that when Ubu came to us, he was clearly confused, and we did not have the hearts to go changing his name too. So he goes by Ubu, Boo-Boo, and various other nicknames we have all come up with! He will be six years old this November, and he is a pure-bred Cocker Spaniel*. He is VERY good natured, very excitable, but a very good-hearted dog. He has been a wonderful addition to our family!" Don't you just love happy endings? I do! Good dog, Ubu, good dog! *The Cocker Spaniel: Although still called an effective hunter's helper, the Cocker certainly makes more vocation of companionship and showmanship than field work. His outstanding attributes are intelligence and affection. (The Mini-Atlas of Dog Breeds by A. DePrisco and J.B. Johnson)

Doris I love the fish costume.

Your blog always cheers me up, love doggies.

I miss my dog something terrible.

Dori thank u for offering to make a few square and one of each would be wonderful. No rush, I don't need the blanket until Spring, I just thought I would start early, you know by the time you get the squares, put it together, not to mention all the other project we having in the works.

Take care and happy hooking.
