Uncle Sam Dog Costume - Ruffie
by Vicky Kilger
Ruffie II in his Uncle Sam's costume
After 911 I decided that Ruffie had to show our patriotic side that Halloween so my mother(Ruffie gramma) made the dog costume from my pattern. It was a real hit and he loved parading around in it. Ruffie love to get dressed up and he poses for photos all the time. It's like look at me!!!! Ruffie will be 11 this November and has had some rough times. At 3 he tore his acl and had to have it repaired. He has bad teeth even though we take him to the vet all the time. He has very few left. But we love him to death and will miss him very much when he is gone. I am hoping this doesn't happen for a long time yet. Even though we have 2 more little dogs. Ruffie is very special to us.
