She's finished...and I just couldn't wait!!!

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

First there was Wonder Ruby because of my lightening speed...

Then there was the Yarn Dog because of my mad skillz with knitting...

And today, for 2008, I give you...

The Dragon Fly!!!!


 When Mom told me we would base this year's costume on my adventures with a dragon fly, I actually had something else in mind!!!! Like maybe a pith helmet and a net??? How embarrassing!!!! What do you pups think??? Oh well, there is always next year's costume, right?  I like Beckett's idea of dressing up like Bob...hee hee hee!

Anyhowl, now on to the real important stuff...our winners!!!

The winning pup in the drawing for just leaving a guess is....

I think the last line of the Haiku must have given it away - BOL!!! There were 10 pups who guessed correctly!!! Nice work, you pups know me well. So the winning pup out of all who guessed correctly is...

And since I really enjoyed this contest I'm awarding a special prize to the pup who guessed my costume first (don't you just love how I keep changing the rules - BOL!!!)...

Congratulations to our winners!!! - W00t!!!

Please send me an email at 'r u b y . b l e u @ y a h o o . c o m' (no spaces of course) with your name and address and you'll recieve a special Halloweenie Prezzie in the mail.

Thanks everypup for playing!!!
Happy (almost half way to) Halloween!!!!

Looking good, Ruby! I'm pretty impressed with the costume making skills, too! But I'm still not sure if I'm sorry we don't have Halloween or not.. Perhaps I'm better off without costumes..

Dexter said... 2:00 PM

Your mom put a lot of work into that costume. It is a winner for sure.
I can't believe that I won a the contest. It took us two guesses. The mom is a wimp part gave it away. Screaming like a girl. Wait, we are girls.

Huskee and Hershey said... 8:52 PM

Hi Ruby,
Your new costume beat all the other ones paws down!! I was gonna say red is your color, but looks like you look good in green too!
Btw, are the air stewardess on Aire Ruby gonna be dressed like that? I think it'd be a cool look!!

Deefor said... 8:58 PM

You look a little sad but I think it's a great costume. Your wings are amazing. Can you fly?


Scottie the 'Cutie' said... 11:41 PM

Hi Ruby!

Wow...that's a really PAWSOME costume you got there! I'll bet you're all set for Halloween now! *grins* Congrats to all the winners of the contest!

BTW,I wanted to make a reservation for the Halloween party at Aire Ruby (Asta directed me here),but I'm not sure how...Mom is a doofus, so she's clueless too! LOL! Could you help me out?


Mack said... 6:38 AM

Now I'm a little concerned. That "Daisy Flower" costume that my Mom bought me from the dollar store just isn't going to cut it! Can I come live with you, Ruby? Your costume is fantastic!!


Amber-Mae said... 8:54 AM

Now how come I couldn't guess it right? Congrats to the winners & I like your new Halloween costume! I can't believe I still haven't got kine. Hmm... Maybe I'll just wear the same one I wore last year. Keke!

Petra said... 9:14 AM

Ruby, you look gorgeous! I think green is your color, too.

Could your mom come to my house and make me a costume? I think Motch might throw a sheet over my head. She's not very creative or talented.

Poppy said... 10:46 AM

Wow, that is an awesome costume!!! You mom is really talented!


Unknown said... 11:49 AM

wally said... 12:49 PM

Ruby!@ That costume is so cool. Your mom is really creative and talented! W00T! Our local SPCA is promoting this contest on their website, you can raise money for your local shelter via a costume contest. I thought you might be interested since you always have the greatest costumes!

Unknown said... 7:03 PM
