DailyECPR: The Animals Prepare for Halloween

It is a 20151025_164712wonderful time of the year! The air is crisp, the trees are full of red and orange leaves and Halloween is just around the corner! Soon, the ghouls, ghosts and goblins will go wild, cackling away on All Hallows Eve! But here at ECPR, we embrace the spooky yet fun-loving spirit of Halloween.

Our amazing Administration Assistant Chandra has got the creative spark! She has decorated Emerald City Pet Rescue’s headquarters with an array of beautiful and creepy decorations.

But at Emerald City Pet Rescue, it is not just the humans that embrace the Halloween spirit, our doggie friends are ready to celebrate!

Here is our lovely Sweetie Pie. Sweetie Pie, with her gentle demeanor and love for play has charmed the heart of everyone she has ever met. Here she is dressed as a cute little caterpillar. Sweetie Pie spends all her life as beautiful as a butterfly, so it is no surprise that she would want to dress as a caterpillar.

If you were to ask Fiona, she would say she is not dressed up for Halloween. She is dressed how she should be adorned every day, in a fancy shawl! Here she is with her personal stylist, Jess. The two make quite the cute pair!


Little Cocoa is dressed as a fuzzy gray unicorn. Just kidding, he’s an elephant! Elephants are known for their adorableness and kind hearts. It is no surprise sweet Cocoa would identify with the noble elephant. With his good-natured personality, he would easily fit into any elephant herd, despite his tiny size.


The ECPR playroom is full of little princes and princesses…. Or at least that is the way we strive to treat all our doggie friends. Little Tikki is no exception. Here she is, adorned in a the fashion of her people… the pink princess dress! Tikki is a kind-hearted and good princess who rules her kingdom with love and compassion.


Shark attack! There is no cuter shark in all the great seas then beautiful Vicki Lee. Vicki spends most of her time as a tiny and adorable Chihuahua. For Halloween, she wanted to experience what it would be like to be an intimidating creature such as a shark! I hate to break it to little Vicki, but she is just as cute as a shark! If you see her all dolled up in her shark outfit, pretend you are really scared!


Roarrrr!!!!! Candy Lou is a dinosaur! Just like Vicky Lee, Candy Lou spends her entire existence as a sweet, little and adorable pooch. She was ready to try out being something ferocious! Part of the fun of Halloween is getting to be someone or something different for a little bit. Can’t you just imagine little Candy roaming around the prehistoric days of yore? All around her, thundering steps of mighty dinosaurs, as Candy Lou roams the vast expanse of giant fern covered landscapes. If you’d ask Candy Lou what she would do in prehistoric times, she would probably tell you that she’d befriend a pterodactyl who would agree to give her a ride through the prehistoric skies. That Candy Lou- a little dog with big dreams!

Here is Mara. She is pouting. She didn’t want to be a lion for Halloween! She wanted to be a wolf, or even a coyote- at least something dog related. Certainly she had not planned on being something as ridiculous as a big cat! But Mara’s a good sport. She agreed to dress in the lion outfit for just a short time, so I could get a picture of her. She let me snap the picture, but she refused to pretend she actually enjoyed being dressed as a cat!


We like to encourage our animal friends to monkey around. Playful fun is good for the soul. Little Lupe took our encouragement a bit too literally. Here he is as a banana loving monkey! Normally, Lupe reminds me of a lion. He has a yellow fringe around his cute face like a miniature lions mane. But Lupe was ready to embrace the joyful spirit of the monkey. He may have lion hair, but his heart is that of a playful monkey!


On Halloween, when the witches go zooming through the sky on their crooked brooms and the monsters slink around every corner, our little troupe of dogs will be ready. The Emerald City Pet Rescue animals say “Halloween, here we come!”
