Friday, July 6, 2012 Reviews Doggie Costumes for 4th of July

As avid dog lovers we include our canine companions in everything we can, and chances are many of us dress them up whenever we can get away with it. Luckily, the 4th of July is the perfect opportunity to do both! reviews went prowling for some past Independence Day costumes to help inspire you this year, and here are a few suggestions to help you get started.
1.       Anything with the stars and stripes or anything red, white and blue: The great thing about sticking to the stars and stripes or the nation’s colors is that you’re allowed you to play around and be as creative as you want.  This is even better if you sew or love crafting things because you can create unique costumes for your pooch and yourself (matching perhaps) to help the two of you stand out.

2.       Hats, bonnets, and bandanas: these are often made to reflect a certain era in history, pay homage to a certain character or invoke a role that was important to the period (e.g. an army general’s hat etc). The best part is they can be historically accurate or fun and quirky.

3.       Dresses and Tuxedos: if you are a History buff then you can dress your pooch like a lady or gent of the times. You can also portray important figures in history or channel the early forefathers with pilgrim outfits.

4.       Uniforms: these can be army outfits from either sides of the battle.

5.       Sunglasses: these are for the “cool” factor and the best part is, finding quirky and decorative ones made specifically for the holiday should be easy.
The thing that reviews loves the most about preparing for 4th of July is the tendency to look back at the nation’s history more deeply than the average person does on a day-today basis. Historically correct costumes or those that are inspired by specific events or people allow owners to delve into their history and will no doubt lead to photo ops that will make memory lane fun to revisit. Best of all, the pooches always look so cute! The entire Purebred Breeders team wishes you a Happy Independence Day!
