Dear Abby - Calling All Girls - Halloween Covers

 Dear Friends,

I just wanted to share some fun vintage magazine covers with you for Halloween.  Calling All Girls was a retro magazine for girls.  It eventually became YM magazine.   It was before my Momma's time, but we both love finding images from the magazine.  The reason?  There was usually a dachshund on the cover!   We found some great retro images to share with you here.  The picture above shows a girl dressed as a skeleton with her dachshund, from 1958.

Below, from 1959, a girl decorates a Jack O' Lantern with the help of her cute dachshund.


 On this 1960 cover, a dachshund helps her person dress up as a tiger.


Now I like this!  The dachshund gets into dress up fun with a Halloween costume here.  This cover is from 1965.


A little dachshund helps bob for apples on this Halloween cover.


I hope you've enjoyed this Halloween fun!  I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.  I'm looking for fun questions and topics for future Dear Abby posts.

Love and a happy weekend to you!

Something I find extremely interesting from past years is the originality they show in their products, publicity, etcetera, etcetera. One example are these amazing covers. I love it.

Those magazine covers are terrific! Clearly someone at that publication was a true dachshund lover :). I have never heard of the magazine before, but I always appreciate seeing vintage dachshund artwork. LOVE it!

Thanks, Barbara! I bet you are right about someone at the magazine being a dachshund person. Had to be!
