Wag-O-Ween, Savannah

Last year when Tim and I were in Savannah, we noticed that there were a lot of dogs dressed in costumes. We asked about it and found out it was Wag-O-Ween, dog trick or treating. It was a lot of fun to see what people came up with (my favorite was a tiny dog dressed as an elephant) and when we adopted Otis a month later we knew we had to start planning his costume. We came up with a lot of ideas, but our favorite was the one-armed drummer for Def Leppard, Rick Allen.

I sewed a Def Leppard tee-shirt to fit and made back stage passes.

He was the star of the show!

Keith and Theresa also came to Savannah with Otis' BFF, Wilbur. Wilbur went as Super Dog.

We didn't just go to Savannah for Wag-O-Ween. Tim and Keith also had a cyclocross race that night. It was fun to see how many other people came to Savannah for the race and also brought their dogs for Wag-O-Ween! My favorite costume this year (other than Otis' and Wilbur's) was a big black dog dressed as a skunk. I thought it was creative.

We also had to take our photo next to the Forsyth Park Fountain. Check out Otis' tongue!

When we got back to the hotel, Otis curled up on the bed and slept until the next morning. We spent Sunday morning walking around Savannah again. Otis and Wilbur kept stopping at the stores expecting treats. It was pretty cute.

We were there and saw your awesome pup! My boyfriend and I drove all the way from Bradenton, Florida. We have to say seeing a 3 legged dog in a Def Leppard shirt is probably the coolest story we brought back with us!
