Close! It's a Samoyed, which is kind of a bigger version of an Eskie. :)

This is either the cutest cosplayer ever or the cutest form of animal cruelty ever? :)

Yep, we took good care of him, and he loves attention from people (and doesn't care about anything else).

He's pretty laid-back about wearing stuff. So long as he's getting attention/played with, he pretty much doesn't care about anything else. (Not even food, which makes him difficult to train. >_>)

Except I don't have a white or brown dog I have one that looks like a wolf but he is black. Hmmmm... I could dress him up like Blue although he is a boy!

Dunno who Blue is. You could probably swing Wolf Link, especially with an accompanying Midna. Or maybe a demonic Hellsing dog. :)

Blue is from Wolf's Rain but she is kind of...blueish Anyways yeah maybe he would probably hate me for it though lol

Cool. Well, probably don't do it if it'll make the dog unhappy... gotta take personality into account.

Awesome! But is this photoshop or did you actually do this to your dog?

volko-dav Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2011
It's an actual costume. The only photoshop is to remove things like the leash. Details on how the costume was made here: [link]
