Happy Halloween!!!

Basil loves Halloween and he really can’t wait to put on his Spock costume and go trick or treating. A few of our neighbors even make home made dog treats and give them out to the cutest pups! I’ll post more photos and video as the day goes on. Make sure to keep everyone safe tonight and have a lot of fun! We would love to see your photos!

The many looks of Basil… Halloween Edition!

With Halloween just a few short days away you may still be looking for something fabulous to wear. Well, we are here to help! Basil and I pulled out our Halloween tub and put together some easy and super cute options for you or your four legged friends. All the looks below are put together with pieces from past Halloween costumes from Nate, Willow, Sebastian, Basil, and myself. You can find a lot of these looks and other cool pieces at your local Target or any Halloween shop. Make sure to let us know which look you like the most in the comments below!

B is for Barktoberfest!

October means fall. The changing of the colors, the wearing of boots, scarfs, and hats, and Oktoberfest! In every city across the US this month there is a event celebrating our love if beer! Lucky for us Charlotte, NC has just one of those events but better!
Barktoberfest was this last Saturday October 18th at the fabulous Triple C Brewing Company in the Southend neighborhood of Charlotte.
It had copious amounts of beer, dogs in silly adorable Halloween costumes and great friends. This event hosted by Triple C Brewing Company, and Canine Cafe featured a mile walk to support cancer in humans and dogs as well as a silent auction, and doggie costume contest.
We had an amazing time. Basil made a lot if new friends and ran into some old ones. Enjoy some photos below, even though a few are a bit blurry. It just shows how much fun was had by all!










Hope everyone is having a great week and getting ready for Halloween. Do you know what your fur babies are going to be yet? Tomorrow I’ll post some last minute ideas for costumes that are super cute and super easy!

It was the 3rd day of October and my hipster gave to me…

… A manly Boston terrier in a blue floral scarf!
Basil is secure in his masculinity and loves to add floral into his wardrobe. This blue scarf (made by Juicy Couture. Okay, it may be mine…) is in honor of Blue Friday where ever 12th man, woman, and dog wears blue to support our Seattle Seahawks.

What is everyone’s plans for the weekend? Is everyone enjoying the fall weather? Let us know in the comments below.

Day 2 of 31 days of Hipster Halloween!

Today’s scarf look is inspired by Josh Gates! If you don’t know who Josh Gates is he is a traveler, adventurer, and wearer of epic scarfs. Hit up Netflix and watch Destination Truth to witness it for yourself!

Happy Thursday all! Just remember… It’s almost the weekend!

31 Days of Hipster Halloween!

If you have been to this blog before you have heard me say that every hipster worth their salt has a least on bow tie. Well, that also goes for scarfs!

For the whole month of October, everyday, Basil will be sporting a different scarf to celebrate fall and the coming of Halloween. Today’s scarf is a bright yellow cotton number. Basil knows he is totally pulling this off!October 1st - Yellow ScarfHappy day 1 of 31 days of hipster halloween!
