Dog O'Lanterns

Jack O'Lanterns For Dog Lovers!

The scary aspects of Halloween are really not to my taste, but I do enjoy celebrating the holiday in a cute, fun way. So when I received an email full of these adorable Dog O'Lanterns, I thought they would be perfect for my first SquidBoo lens. Having a carving of my smiling dog on the porch is more my style than a creepy faced carving. One year my daughter's artist boyfriend carved her dogs face on her pumpkin and it made her Halloween!

If you are a dog lover like me you should enjoy these carvings even if your preferences lean more toward the creepy and ghoulish! If you are an artist this might inspire you to try your hand at dog pumpkin carvings.

I sincerely wish I knew who to give credit to for these pictures that are circling the internet, but since I don't I give my thanks to cyberspace!

Sooooo cute! And fun. I'm reading this on the 4th of July as I listen to fireworks outside. It's been so hot today, it's nice to think of the cooler times of autumn. I'll have to show this to my granddogs mom and see if she wants to try this in a few months. :)
