Which Halloween Costume Should I Buy For My Dog?

BuyroneBuyroneTyrone is a majestic 11-year-old Yorkie who deserves internet fame. Until then, his mom needs your help picking out what things to buy in order to spoil him.

Did you know I have a dog named Tyrone and I am very obsessed with him? If you didn’t, well, now you do. I convinced my boss to let me write about Tyrone, once again, this time, asking for help in buying him a Halloween costume. I know, it’s a bit early, but we need time to narrow down our options.

Some dogs don’t like to wear clothing, but Tyrone loves to wear t-shirts, because he only weighs eight pounds, so they help him stay warm. I can confirm he looks very handsome and adorable when he is wearing clothing, but he did poop on some pajamas I bought him once, so I don’t buy him anything that goes near his tail now.

Now, similar to our Co-op and Buy Committee posts, I am writing this article with the intention of getting some feedback from our readers. Unlike those two series, I am going to provide all of the options I’m currently considering (but feel free to shout out a costume if you think Tyrone will look cute in it).

Let’s get this out of the way now, Tyrone would look so damn cute as a teddy bear, it might actually be illegal. Please confirm or deny these thoughts.

Tyrone has seen all of the Jurassic Park movies, sans Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom since that was an awful movie. If he can’t dress up Jeff Goldblum shirtless, being a raptor for Halloween is the 2nd best option.


Rubie’s Giraffe Dog Costume

I want this costume because it looks like the giraffe is eating the dog’s head. I need to laugh at this in person.

Tyrone, Tyrone, Tyrone. Just practicing in case this costume wins. I’ll practice my moves so we can nail the “Banana Boat Song (Day-O)” scene.

One year for Halloween, I was Tommy Pickles (yes, I wore a diaper). I feel that means Tyrone should dress up at Tommy’s favorite dinosaur, Reptar.


Frisco Lobster Dog & Cat Costume

This Frisco Lobster Dog & Cat Costume is an option solely so I can say “bring in the dancing lobsters” before I introduce Tyrone to everyone on Halloween.


Ghostbusters Movie Pet Costume

Now, Tyrone is 11 years old, so he is technically a senior, but his only experience with Ghostbusters is when the kids on Stranger Things all dressed up for Halloween. He would look 10/10 cute in this, though.


Rubie’s Cheeseburger Dog & Cat Costume

Previously, Tyrone has been a hot dog for Halloween. That was a so-so costume. Cheeseburgers are better, therefore, I imagine this costume is better too.


Stock Show Pet Costume

Now, normally, I’d never buy anything from Amazon without any reviews. Then again, I did buy the Thanos swimsuit and that worked out fine. I have seen this chicken head costume no less than 20 times and I cackle every single time I see it. It had to be a contender.
