Early Halloween Greetings From Her Highness Devil Dog Pepa

As a comedian from my childhood Flip Wilson used to say back in the days of Laugh In, "The Devil Made Me Do It!," so in anticipation of the upcoming holiday, Queen Pepa (approximately) reminded me that she wanted to make one more appearance here as her alter ego 'Devil Dog' just to reinforce how cute she is when she gets dressed up. So, here she is from Halloween 2006 showing off what a fetching bitch she can be when she puts on the horns and cape to greet Trick or Treaters. I'm sure she's happy to retire this particular costume in favor of her much more comfy fleecy skeleton hoodie, but I've always loved how devilishly cute she is when she puts on the horns and cape, and, believe it or not, there was a time (well in the past now) when she really did live up to being a Devil Dog! But for anyone who has ever owned a Terrier, that should come as no surprise, because in their younger years (when she acquired this, her first Halloween costume) they can really live up to the reputation!

As you can see here, she really rules the roost at Casa IVG, and will continue to do so as long as she's with us, which I hope will be for a good, long time to come!

I love it! She looks so cute & innocent, as if she's thinking, "What a great costume - it's so out of character." My mutt freaked out whenever I tried to put anything on her, so I was never able to do the dog costume thing.

Cute yes, innocent, well sometimes! She is a terrier ... She's never been fond of the horns, but tolerates them for the occasion! I thought you might like this shot, since you're a Pepa fan, lol.

I love this photo, I hope she gets lots of doggie treats trick or treating.

Hey B2,
I'm not sure her broomstick will get us as far as your house, but thanks for the sentiment! She'd love it though! We'll be having a party that night, so she'll likely be working the room for all its worth and charming her way into getting all sorts of things she shouldn't have. :-)

Glad you liked this one! She'll get plenty of treats, you can be sure. She even hands out a few to some of the neighborhood dogs who come by to visit!
