Pug-O-Ween complications

My friends, the ministry is facing a crisis. Despite mother's best efforts, Wendell's Pug-O-Ween headwear will not stay in place. In fact, Wendell will not even stay in place. As I type this, my brother is racing in circles as mother attempts to corral him on the living-room rug, pug hat in hand. It has become apparent that Wendell may not be able to wear his full costume to tomorrow's holiday gathering -- the social event of the season for North Texas pugs. This could make it impossible for us to claim a prize in the group pug costume contest.

Pray for us, my flock. Pray that mother is able to find some means, any means, to get Wendell's costume to stay in place. Velcro, a chin strap, hot glue -- whatever it takes.

May I suggest a tranquilizer ?

Goodluck and I hope your clan wins the coveted price ...

I am praying fervently! Please don't say mother is considering a staple gun!

Good ideas, Z and Sarah S. We hadn't considered a tranquilizer or staple gun. Or, come to think of it, a nail gun ...

We look forward to more updates! Have a good time, even without a complete costume for Wendell.

Thank you, Rabbi Jake. We must get you to Pug-O-Ween someday. Just imagine the sheer joy you feel in the presence of young Wendell, and multiply that by 500.

Some double-sided sticky tape with the foam board in the middle, perhaps? Just an idea... We too are in the same quandary with our French Bulldogs... Our left-wing blogger will be sporting a wig (as Agatha Hufflepooch), plus The Grudge Report's right-wing blogger will be sporting a fedora hat.

Have a happy halloween, oh wise one.

Your faithful flock -
Agatha and Gunther
