Pet Costume Ideas?

Our Girl Scout troop has been working with local shelter dogs to participate in a dog show so they can find homes. One of the categories for competition is best costume and I'm wondering if any of you have ideas for CHEAP and EASY costumes for the girls and their dogs. Thanks!

  • Nurse and patient....

    The girl could wear scrubs and the dog a little hospital gown.

  • Dress the kid like a cowgirl and the dog in a little saddle. My parents have St. Bernards and I've ALWAYS wanted to do this with my son and one of their dogs! (No he wont ride the dog, I'm sure some wacko will be calling PETA).

  • We had our dog show this morning and we dressed all of the dogs like Girl Scouts by tying sashes on them and we had all of the girls wear doggie ears and used an eyebrow pencil to add whiskers to their faces. The girls and the dogs had matching bandanas. It was really cute. Thanks for the ideas, we have shared them with the shelter and will be using some of them next year. I especially like the underdog idea - I loved watching him as a kid!
