To Absurdity… and Beyond!

Mission log, stardate 5295.2: Have encountered a bizarre race of creatures who all wear distinctive outer garments, despite already owning built-in fur coats.

Taken by Melissa S. at Chicago’s 2009 Spooky Pooch Parade.



  1. Mary (the first) says:

    Beam him up!

  2. CUTE!

  3. i’ve come to the conclusion that animal costumes are the best part of halloween 🙂

    p.s. felt crappy this morning as i have to start getting up earlier and didn’t get enough sleep last night – but then i peeled away the page on my co calendar and saw that super cute nose and i realized it is now nosevember and it totally brightened my day 😀

  4. Sending the Rover on a mission to Sirius?

  5. Andi from NC says:

    The helmet totally makes it….

  6. 260Oakley says:

    Nope, I think this astronut is on a direct course for Uranus.
    (he is a dog, after all)

  7. I’m from Europe and we don’t celebrate Halloween, but it seems to be a lot of fun!!!!

  8. Take me to your leader of the pack Earthling!

  9. Ground control to Major Dog….

    doggeh is not the only alien who finds Earthlings to be …well…

  10. Hope the pup knows Klingon 😀

  11. Commander Heel Armstrong prepares for launch.

  12. Check out the wheels of the stroller behind him. Someone needs to watch where they’re going!

  13. YUCKY!

  14. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice doggie subtextS, there 🙂

  15. Ahhh…you two are bad. Bad, bad, bad. (And, I love it!!!) 😀

  17. 260Oakley says:

    Ground control to Major Nom

  18. Oh dear! (helpless laughter)

  19. 260Oakley says:

    Good thing I didn’t submit the one about searching for black holes…

  20. bob drummond says:

    first dog on the moon ,maybe?

  21. I admire that dog. Not many dogs would be so cooperative in the wearing of that elaborate costume!! The dog is really cute, great costume.

  22. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!!! says:

    yeah, it IS good, that you chose not to do so, huh? 😉

  23. rolling helplessly on the floor, clutching my belly, which is aching from laughing, guffawing, chuckling, and just plain snorting….

  24. I think they need to start enforcing poop and scoop laws **cough*STROLLER WHEELS*cough**

    hmmm, oakley and malinki’s comments remind me of a joke i heard many years ago (in high school):
    q: how is toilet paper like the starship enterprise?
    a: they both circle uranus looking for klingons

    happy howl-o-ween! (belated!)

  26. Looking at Buzz Lightpaws here, I wonder what I always wonder about astronauts: “How does he go to the bathroom?”

  27. Depends 😀

  28. ROFLMAO…:D
