Halloween Giveaway


Buddy:  Hey, friends, before we begin today's post and get to the giveaway, I ... we - Merci, Sam and I - would like to say we're innocent of everything except having fun picking on Jan. 

Sam:  It all started when Jan ordered us each a Halloween costume.  She knows we do NOT EVER let her dress us if we have to dress by lifting our legs.  She was careful to order costumes with velvro, never dreaming there would be leg holes instead of velcro leg straps.  She thought the costumes would be like my thundershirt - all velcro tabs. Surprise!

Merci:  Well, we're about to show you the photo bomb session of the century.  Buddy, Sam and I weren't the only uncooperative elements of the photo shoot, the sun refused to shine through the tree branches.  Enough said.  Let's take a look.

Sweet Pea Sam


Sam:  Hey, look at me. I'm Sweet Pea, all in green.  From this angle I look more like a court jester, but let's take a look at the rest of the costume. 

Sweet Pea Sam
Sam:  This is not how the costume should look.  It should fit.  Notice the leg hole to the right?  My ears go through the slits okay, but I refuse to let Jan put my feet through the leg holes. 

Sweet Pea Sam
Sam:  It doesn't look so bad from this angle because the leg holes don't show.. It's a  nice one piece costume. Thick, soft material and accented with 3 large poly-filled peas. It even has a leash hole.  We're not sure if this is machine washable.

Sweet Pea Sam
Sam:  Don't look at me like that, Jan.  I need a break from modeling... This is an XL Sweet Pea costume.and you can get a much better idea of how is is supposed to look when the model actually puts his legs through the leg holes by clicking here.

Pirate Captain Buddy
Buddy:  And I'm the swashbuckling Captain Buddy.  Don't I look fierce?


Pirate Captain Buddy

Buddy: Hey, Sam, I didn't laugh when you tried on the Sweet Pea costume.  This has a buckle (which brilliant Jan buckled underneath my belly instead of across the back, a sash and a cutlas so I can threaten the kitties with walking the plank.  (Just kidding.  I love the Funny Farmer Felines.) It is machine washable.

Pirate Captain Buddy
Buddy:  What do you mean, I have to stand up so readers can see the costume?  I'm a senior pirate.  I sit down between sea voyages.

Pirate Captain Buddy
Buddy:  Yes, I know the arm holes stick out, but I will NOT let Jan put my legs through.  Use some imagination.  You can see how this costume should fit by clicking here.

Clown Merci
Merci:  This costume that doesn't have leg holes, just velcro.  I'm even more senior than Buddy, so I get the privilege of sitting as I model too. This is an easy on, easy off two-piece costume. It is machine washable.

Clown Merci
Merci:  Here is a side and back of the head view.

Clown Merci
Merci:  Don't I look cute?  Very festive.  Don't you love the colors?

Clown Merci
Merci:  Are we done with the pictures yet?

Clown Merci
Merci: Al dressed up and ready for Halloween.  Hey, I don't have to keep this on until then, do I?  Whew, I get to take it off before then.

Clown Merci
Merci:  You can find this clown costume here. I wear a medium.

Buddy in pirate hat
Buddy:  Jan thinks I look cute in the pirate hat.  Back view.

Buddy in pirate hat, Merci & Sam
Buddy:  Captain Buddy reporting for plundering.  Merci and Sam will assist.

Sam in pirate hat, Merci standing guard
Sam: Hey, I look handsome in this hat.  Do you think any girl woofies will think I'm a catch?

Sam in pirate hat
Sam: Or do you think my head is too big and I look more like a cowboy in this hat?  Hats are fun.

Merci:  We did enjoy trying on the costumes, even if the guys are against wearing anything over their legs. Jan said she wishes she had dressed us up when we were young so we we'd be accustomed to it now.

Buddy: The nice folks at Entirely Pets said we could do a giveaway of our favorite costume,  but there are so many neat ones, we'd like to let the winner choose his or her own favorite costume.  The costumes are made for dogs, but it's possible the smaller sizes, especially the hats, could fit a cat, so cats are not excluded from winning.  We do advise cats check the size measurements before entering, though, to be sure it comes in your size.  The available costumes can be found here.

Sam:  Who can enter? Any furry from the US, UK and Canada. Just leave a comment on this post TELLING us you'd like to enter!  Be sure to leave some way we can contact you. We'll leave the giveaway open until midnight Saturday, September 28 and announce the winner chosen by Random.com on Monday, Sept. 30.

If you are unable to leave a comment to enter for some reason, email  your entry comment to us and we will post it for you.  In you do, be sure to include your name and your blog address, if you have one.  jansfunny farm AT gmail DOT com. 

Entirely Pets provided the costumes but we were not paid for this review and any opinions expressed are our own.

  10. Oh I would love to dress up for Halloween and I will put my legs through leg holes I am a good girl like that. Tell Jan starting young doesn't make a difference, Mommy tried with Fenris when he was a pup and he wouldn't let her then. He hates to have anyone mess with his legs. I was already one when I come to live with her and I'll let her do pretty much anything she wants. Although I am learning a few bad habits from Fenris. ~Tuiren

    We thinks all of you looked really CUTE, the rest of us don't care to dress up. Thank Cod and Dog Mommy has Tui to dress up. She leaves the rest of us alone.

  28. You are all very good sports for wearing those costumes, even if you didn't put your legs through the holes. Mom was just checking out the costumes and thinks I would make a good dogosaurus. I'm not so sure!
