It's almost Halloween! Have you carved your pumpkins yet? Have you carved your dog's pumpkin yet? Doug has been carving a Kirby pumpkin since his first Halloween four years ago so it is now an expected tradition for us.
Better Homes and Gardens has patterns for popular dogs (and cats) which you can see and download for free (with registration) here. But what if you have a mixed breed like Kirby? Combine patterns! We use the Yorkie face with the Jack Russell ears.
Once you have improved your carving skills with a pumpkin or two you may want to purchase a Funkin, synthetic pumpkins that are carefully crafted from high density foam and painted by hand to look just like real pumpkins. They are made hollow so there is no scooping of seeds and pumpkin guts necessary.
I would love to see you pup masterpieces!
