Shelby's Halloween Costume

Presenting Yoda pug!

Shelby was excellent during the photo shoot. She sat patiently waiting for us to finish taking the photos. This was particularly good considering that she was wary of the pumpkin, no thanks to Steven. He teased her by pretending that the jack-o-lantern was biting his hand earlier in the day.

I ordered this costume at buycostume.com, but it's was a bit big, so I had to alter it a bit. Shelby was a tad short for the costume. But the results are great! And with the magic of Photoshop, Steven gave her a light saber.

Oh my gosh! I've seen some cute pug costumes, but Shelby as Yoda is the best by far. I wish I could get Mushu to dress up, but just getting his harness on is a major feat.

Wow, Winnie - Great Job in selecting this
Yoda costume for Shelby! She looks very
convincing as Yoda--wisdom with the wrinkles and all! Thanks for a memorable
Halloween photo!

Must be something about pugs and costumes ..... Click on my name to go to a TV station website that has a slideshow and video of a pug costume contest in Burbank, California. .... The crowd fave was .... "Pug-Vader".... OH NO, our sweet Shelby's nemesis! ..... (Hmmmm, if clicking on my name doesn't work. here's the full address below....) )

Is the costume contest I linked to in my earlier post the same one Shelby went to? Wow! Why isn't Shelby in the slide show? Darn it! Yoda Pug and Pug Vader should have stolen the show. Winnie, did Shelby get to meet her rival?

Shelby's costume is great!
Yes, I think there is something about pugs and costumes... these are my pictures from the Green Mountain Pug Rescue (Vermont), including some of costumes - and it wasn't even Halloween!

Wow! That is adorable! And adding the light saber is clearly pure genius on your husband's part. That photo is a real winner!

Posted by: rebekah | Nov 1, 2005 6:05:43 AM

My Lord!!!! How cute is that? Put her in the movies! We need to make a movie staring only pugs in costumes. PugVader, Pugzilla, PugYoda, Pugga-the-hutt etc....wouldn't that be a hoot!!!

There isn't a local costume contest, so Shelby usually gets dressed up to go for a walk on Halloween night and meet people. Darth Pug is fantastic! I wish they could've met!

Posted by: Winnie | Nov 1, 2005 7:52:20 AM

That is the best costume I've seen, pug or otherwise! Wicked choice!

Shelby looks just like my little boy pug, Toby. We always call him "Yoda," too. Darn, I just sold my Princess Leia costume at a yard sale!!! I've gotta get that costume for my Toby for next year. Great picture, great site. I've been making gibberish cooing noises at the pictures for 5 mins with my co-workers.

Adorable outfit on an adorable pup! My
pugs' name actually is Yoda due to the
uncanny resemblance when he was little. I've
had many dogs, pugs are the greatest! Thanks
for this site, I check it every day. Give
Shelby a hug for me, I'm sure she will let

You has stolen my name!

Posted by: Shelby | Nov 2, 2005 11:32:51 AM

That pic is just priceless!! Thanks for sharing! :)

I just saw Shelby's picture on the Pamperedpuppy website! You do understand why she didn't win 1st place don't you? Since Princess Merry is a pug they can't have other pugs winning the contests; otherwise they'll be accused of "pugotism". That's okay because we pug owners know who the true winner is.

Thats Awsome....

Here's our Winston as Yoda


Pug Rule!
