My Halloween Costume

     Hi, everyone! Yesterday Mom took me and Phoenix to PetsMart for some socializing and to get weighed. Phee was a little nervous around people, but did okay. I did very well, but there was one women who I really didn't like (I barked a bit). I do that; some people just trigger me and I hate them. There's no rhyme or reason to it; I just do not like certain people. The funny thing is, it's almost always people who give Mom the creeps/weird vibes that I have a problem with. Maybe I sense something (I am a highly sensitive and emotional dog) about them, who knows.
Phoenix (she's around 4 months, give or take a few weeks) was 4lbs 7oz and I was 7lbs 9ozs. A combination of me being so sick last week and getting more exercise made me go from 8lbs 5-9ozs to 7lbs 9ozs. Dachshund Mommy: I'm a nazi about Nola's weight, but this is too low. A healthy weight for her is anywhere from 7lbs 12oz to 8lbs 5oz. Doesn't seem like much of a difference, but ounces on a small dog are pounds on a big one. 

     I've decided on my Halloweenie costume! It's...A DEVIL! Mom says it's perfectly fitting, but I beg to differ. What do y'all think?

Don't forget about my costume contest! Find the details here, but basically:

  • Email me at nolabuggy AT gmail DOT com with your picture, name, blog addy and what you're dressed as
  • The deadline is November 1st
  • The winner gets a $25 dollar Target gift card

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola


  1. Our Lady loves it. We hate costumes. Hope you have a clothing free day! Hailey and Zaphod

  2. Hey Nola!
    Wow, I bet that shopping was a lot of fun! I think your costume is really great. Sometimes it's nice to have one that's the opposite of your personality! BOL
    BTW: I'll get your contest added to the BCCalendar.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  3. A DEVIL?? Now Dachshund Mommy, just WHAT were you thinking! We think Nola should be dressed like a princess.

    (Butt, she does look really cute as a devil...)

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  4. I'm not sure about a devil... Maybe a little impish at times!


  5. You should be a unicorn or a princess! The Minions Three should be in the devil suits!

  6. Oh Nola, you would look good in anything you wear!
    Ms. Wilma

  7. Ernie and I have devil clawstooms too!!! BUTT you look PRETTY in YOURS.. we just look like a couple doofuses.

  8. You look really cool in your devil outfit....butt, how can an angel like you be a devil????

  9. I love it! They didn't have an angel costume you could wear?!?

  10. You guys look so sweet. We will email you out entry today
    Benny & Lily

  11. You make the cutest little devil I have ever seen.

  12. Woof! Woof! Very CUTE! doing a photo shoot of my costume but not doing well for me ... Happy MM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  13. We will have to find a costume for me! I think you are way too sweet to be a devil! Now Puddles would be a good devil....


  14. I think a princess costume would be more fitting.

    Millie & Cindy

  15. You make any costume look great, Nola.


  16. I think you should be dressed as an angel. But that's just me. :)

  17. Oh you little devil you! Maybe I can give you some of the weight Freddie is supposed to lose. :)

  18. Oh I want one for my Molly. I bet it fits her wicked barky butt personality better. You're too much of an angel ween in my book! :)

    Sarah & le Weens

  19. Hehehe.....hate to say it about such a lovely, beautiful pup such as yourself, but I LOVE IT!! It is so you Nola!!!



  20. You make a VERY sweet devil....we don't believe that it has anything to do with your character.

    You're probably right about some people!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  21. Nola....
    My first Beautifully Unique mutt, Shadow, used to love every person.... Except for our next-door neighbor!! Sweet man. He would lend you the shirt off his back. But, for whatever reason, Shadow's fur stood up whenever she saw him. Shadow would growl, and bark, too!! Dogs!! ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  22. What a great costume and what a cool contest idea

  23. Oh my Dog, you look adorable (you little devil!)

  24. Fantastic costume Nola! I think it fits you, perfectly! ;-) What are the minions wearing? Make sure you eat really well and soon the ounces will start appearing!

  25. We think you look cute, what a little devil, somehow we get the idea it's most fitting.

    Your Furiends
    Susie & Bites

  26. I didn't think you could be a devil, but that looks really good!

  27. I think your mom meant 'little devil' like the term of endearment. At least that's sort of how I mean it when I use the words on Bella. ;)

    FTR, I believe the expression "never trust a person your dog doesn't like" has a fair bit of merit to it.

    Good luck getting that weight back on.

  28. YOu look smashing in your costume...but I know you're really an angel :)

  29.'re a cute little devil (tee hee).

  30. You look so cute in your costume, Nola!!

    I bet you are sensing something about them, Nola. Dogs are very good at that! If there is someone Lassie doesn't like, I never linger around them for too long, because Lassie loves everyone, so when he doesn't like someone, it must be (and sometimes I later find out that it definitely was) for a very good reason.

  31. Nola, you are the cutest little devil I've ever seen! Have fun on Howl-o-weenie!

  32. Momma says, "Always trust a dog's instincts when it comes to people!" The devil costume is very cute, Nola, but you are more the "Devil in the Blue Dress..."

  33. CUUUUTE! love the second picture. what does the body part of the costume look like?
    mom and dad are still working on my costume - but we have a couple of ideas.


  34. Nola,

    You Devil! We love the costume! It makes me wag.
