Halloween Contest!! This Dog Skeleton Needs a Name!

Bone dog skeleton

I admit it, I can be a bit of a Halloween junkie. We decorate the outside of our house, I sometimes wear a costume to hand out treats, and I always attend “Witches’ Night Out,” a festive, local event held every year that includes everything from a costume contest and discounted shopping to the Warlock’s Ball, complete with magical drinks and a live band at night. Since I also love anything dog related, I just had to have this Halloween dog skeleton to put on our front porch. He throws back his head and howls and his eyes glow bright red. On trick-or-treat night (which is not always October 31st in my area), this charming fellow will be greeting the trick-or-treaters with me! Do you have a favorite Halloween decoration that’s pet related? I’m taking suggestions for what to name my new pet. What would YOU name my bone dog skeleton? Just put your suggestion in the comments section, and if I choose your name suggestion, you’ll get some swag from The Contemporary Pet, including a coffee mug, mouse pad, Halloween treats and more!  Contest closes October 7, 2017.

    I love this little guy! Fun contest, I would name him “Doggie BONES”! We love Halloween at our house too. I bought a really cool skeleton swag to hang on our front door.
    Love & biscuits,

      Thanks for the name suggestion! It’s good to hear I’m not the only Halloween junkie. We even give out dog treats to all the animals who are out trick-or-treating with their families. Last year we got a Great Dane in ballet shoes, a tutu and tiara. She was adorable!

    How about Bone-Jangles (like Bo Jangles)?
