Dear Abby - Vintage Halloween Dogs

Dear Friends,

Happy ALMOST Halloween!  Are you ready for Halloween?   I am looking forward to a quiet holiday, with extra treats and happy music when the trick or treaters come by.  I like children, but don't like loud noises at the door, so I stay in the bedroom all safe and comfy on Halloween night.

When I'm not playing, walking, snuggling, and blogging, I like to collect dog theme vintage cards, photos, postcards, and images.  I would love to share some vintage Halloween dogs with you today.

This Calling All Girls magazine features a girl dressed as a witch -- and her dachshund rides on the broom!

Betsy McCall paper dolls like this came in McCall's magazines back in the 1960's.  These Betsy McCall pictures feature Betsy's dachshund, Nosy, playing on Halloween.

This children's book, Fall is Here, has an illustration of two children carving a jack o'lantern with the help of their cocker spaniel.

A cute Scottish Terrier is pictured on this 1940's vintage greeting card.

A beagle finds his person - even in a costume! - on this Wee Wisdom magazine cover.

In this vintage photo, a Boston Terrier dog is dressed up as a sailor for Halloween.   I think the shadow in the foreground looks spooky!

A boy wears a Halloween advertising pattern costume, and his dog is dressed up too in this vintage photo.

Extra spooky!  A child is ready to trick or treat as their dog watches in this vintage photo.

This cute vintage photo features a little clown and his dog.

 A little girl is dressed up for Halloween, and waiting with her dog in this antique photo.

Aww!  I love this vintage photo.  I hope this sweet looking dog gets lots of treats.

In this vintage photo a cat and dog go trick or treating together.

 This vintage postcard features a boy and girl with their cat and dog. 

 A sweet little terrier dog helps his boy line up Jack O' Lanterns on this vintage postcard.

This vintage postcard has a black cat peeking out of a jack o' lantern and greeting a dog.

An owl and dog play near a big jack o' lantern on this Halloween postcard.

Two dogs are surprised when a cat peeks out of a jack o' lantern on this vintage postcard.

I hope these fun vintage postcards put you in a Halloween mood.  If you have cats or dogs, do they enjoy greeting trick or treaters?  Do your pets like to dress up for Halloween?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below!

Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween!

What a wonderful selection of vintage photos and post cards! You always find such treasures and we appreciate that you share them with us. We have never dressed our pets in costumes. Our two previous dachshunds would have no part of that, and would likely eat the costumes right off of their bodies. We always keep our pets safe and secure inside om Halloween night. You never know what might scare one of them and we don't take any chances!

These are so cute! This makes me feel less guilty about dressing up our labradoodle as a peacock this year. :)
