|Halloween Giveaways Start Here|
We unpacked a few samples and Tanner gave me that look that said "They're all too small for me".
"Sorry Tanner. We do have large Star Wars items coming up next, so stay tuned." We'll be sure to include something for our full-sized Fidos there.
We took a quick inventory of the toys and apparel and decided we can offer 8 prizes. Whew! Here's the deal: Seven Fidos will get to score a magical Halloween with one or more of our costumes, apparel items, or toys. One large dog in the drawing will win a great toy for fetch. Tanner is secretly hoping that will be him, but I'll appease him with a trip to Petco to select something fun.
|Oliver Has a Knight Aboard|
A number of the costumes in my selection come in a size Small/Medium. With elastic, Velcro and other adjustments, they appear to have some give to allow for both sizes to find them workable. Petco recommends size Small/Medium for dogs with a neck to tailbone length of 11-15 inches.
Size Medium items are made to fit dogs with a neck to tailbone length of 13-15 inches. Other items are one size fits most. We easily discovered many Velcro attachments can be extended with an extra piece of Velcro from a craft store and elastic can be added to extend the size of many pieces that are worn around the middle or as headwear. These are all made quite lightweight so that your dog is less likely to put the brakes on and tear off the offending headgear.
The size small apparel (a darling dress and a Zombie hoodie) appear to be a reasonable fit for Oliver, a 10 pound Papillon. I hope all this input helps in your size decisions.
The cat prize includes a teaser toy with mice that dangle and dance and an adorable Sushi box filled with catnip toys--quite clever!
