    Each year Art Andrews and I come up with a costume for my girl Chubbs. She, I must say, is an incredibly good sport about it. We had been planning to do an AT-AT for a year and a half after getting the idea from a Sheldon comic and would have done it last year but already had Freddy Pugger planned. So we had started working on it when pictures of the Greyhound in the AT-AT came out. I was pretty crushed needless to say. We finally decided to scrap that idea and come up with something new quick. We had an idea but couldn't find the right color of fur and when we saw the all white fur at the store, Art said "Wampa" and that was it! We started this Wednesday or Thursday and just finished it last night. You thought your biggest fear on Hoth was the Wampa, but now you will fear...the WAMPUG!

    I already 'liked' it on FB and shared one of the pics with my friends because that's such an awesome idea for a costume. Very clever, and that pic with upside-down Luke is FTW.

    You guys did a great job !

    We almost decided not to do them and let her own claws showed. Glad I decided to add them as they really made the costume look complete.

    Oh man.... I can't wait until my kids get up to see that.


    Many times when I see dogs in costumes I feel sorry for them because they have this look like:

    But your pooch just looks as pleased as anything to be a Wampa and to see a happy wampa is just HYSTERICAL!!

    That is so true. She seriously is such a trooper and puts up with so much from Art and I. I shot the video of her walking as she was coming out of her photoshoot with Art and she was happy as can be.

    OK, next year the contest needs to open up the Kids category to include pets. Otherwise, it discriminates against the childless...

    Yep. I love Pugs (will probably get one when we decide to get a dog) but Chubbs is one of those Pugs that if I saw you walking her on the street, I'd come over and ask if I could pet her (which would end up with me scooping her up and letting her slobber on me!).

    Error- she used to hate it but has had to wear so many costumes over the years and suffer through pictures that she has just learned to sit pretty and look awesome :lol

    Hahaha! And she totally would! Feeling the :love:love:love for The Chubbs!

    That's awesome! I sent it to my aunt they have two Pugs. We could never get our dog to keep any kind of costume on. He was a Chow/Black Lab/German Shepherd mix and he would run around bucking like a bull and do barrel rolls on the floor to get it off. :lol

    I never met a Pug I didn't like. They're affectionate little guys, ain't they?

    Just stumbled across this and your pug is very cute.I was just thinking that a Tauntaun or even a Bantha costume would be killer also.(y)thumbsup
