Atticus Incognito — It’s Halloween!

It’s Halloween!  That glorious day when everyone (kids, toddlers, adults & dogs) likes to dress up and pretend to be someone or something else.  I’m good with being just being me, but I do enjoy wearing a nice costume for a short time.

Since I’ve been sick, I haven’t felt much like doing anything but rest and observe.  I’m a not big participant these days.  I have no doubt that I will recover with time (and drugs) and until then I just need to do what my body craves… and that’s rest.

As a special Halloween treat, I thought I’d share with you my album of Halloweens past.  Of course, I don’t require a holiday to go incognito so I’ve dressed up many more times than just this one day a year.

Enjoy your spooky day, friends!  Stay safe and try not to overindulge in the sugar-laden treats — tummy aches are no fun.

Atticus or Potapenko?


we're Timmy & Buster! Go Giants!


I pimp clowns??

I'm a knight in plastic armor!

may the force be with you


my spacesuit (in case of the rapture)

Yo -- Snoop Dog's got nothin on me!

"Luke, where are you?"

this is my princess getup

me as Ringo -- I dig it!

Wilbur is an adorable clown

I had to try on Wilbur's costume. do you think it's a tad small?

Happy (Hawaiian) Halloween, friends!



  1. Love ALL your many looks, Atticus and Wilbur. Faves have to be the pimp costume for Atti and the Yoda costume for Wilbur. Happy Halloween to you all.!

  2. I agree that Atti rocks the pimp costume and the Yoda costume seems as if it was made just for Wilbur. Wilbur tends to be quite the poser too!
    Happy Halloween to you all! Tybalt has decided to be Rick James tonight. No costume needed just wash and wear hair.

    Love Atticus as “Mama” in the tennis outfit – Game Set and Match and the force is strong with Wilbur as Yoda!

    Hope you are all feeling perkier. We have two more family members for you to play with now, two very BIG dogs the girls new horses: Raina/Reyna and Tor. Can’t wait to introduce Xander and Zhiva to them and see what they think.

  4. They are all hilarious! How funny, I had a good laugh :-)
    My favorite is the pimp clowns with both of you guys together, Wilbur and Atticus, hahaha!!!

    Get well my puppy,

  5. So many great ones – how can we have a favorite? Certainly Wilbur as Yoda has to be in the pick, and I find Atticus as a Sonic a bit eerie because he looks so…natural. Atticus as Mama the Tennis Player is also startling for its “normalcy”! Really, Atticus and Wilbur have to be the most patient pooches on the planet to so calmly model all these outfits.

    Truly enjoyed this–I have a big smile on my face. And I will be smiling even more when you are better, Atticus, and can show us some brand new get-ups.

  8. Atticus says:

    ha! of course, Tybalt is going as Rick James — he’s a natural!!

  9. Atticus says:

    I especially like wearing mama’s sweaty tennis clothes :)

    I hope you’ll post pictures of your new “pets”, Laine!

  10. Atticus says:

    so happy to give you a good laugh, Franziska! smiling & laughter are always good… :)

  11. Atticus says:

    Judy, don’t I look ridiculously tall in my sonics garb?? I stretched just for the picture.

    I trust that I will be better soon, Judy, so you can just go ahead and smile :)

  12. Atticus says:

    thanks Chris!

  14. Atticus says:

    I definitely love wearing mama’s sweaty tennis duds, June! :)

  15. I’m actually not a fan of animals dressed as humans, but this is hilarious and some of it is down right cute. There I said it! :)

    I hope you’re trick or treating was lots of fun!

    ha! a lot of people say that… that is, until they see me in my getups! appreciate the comment on a post you probably we’re too thrilled too read.

  17. Trish says:

    Such cute pictures! My fave has to be Wilbur in the Yoda outfit but also the two of them as bumblebees (with Bella looking on with disdain). I hope Atticus is back to his spunky self by now! :-)

    caregiving. family. advocacy.
