This is my dog in her new emu costume. It really drives the cats nuts.

<-thanks very much for all the comments and the ribbon->

Oh my. No. Sorry. Kidding. It's a real emu: Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_797512.jpg He lives on a farm near me and he loves to dance.

Some people do weird things to their pets.

I'm very happy for your ribbon!
On the other side of the world, without the benefit of your comment and that of the voters, I fail to see the humour.
All I see is a stuffed EMU giving me a scary stare.. Must be these "puppets/costumes" (from reading the comments) are common place in the US?
PS: I gave it a 6 for technical ability, composition, focus etc so I wasn't one of the 2 x 2's :P

This is really Something. And it looks at me everytime I log on. Beautifully hairdressered outfit and poached egg eyes from the dark side. Scram, it says. James Cagney to you.

I was looking for some kind of storybook animal in the "signature" challenge from you, and I couldn't find one. Now I know why! Great costume! I can't wait to see what your dog does for Easter :D

Congrats on the Red!!

I thought this had to be the funniest shot and the freakiest-looking, ugliest emu I have ever laid eyes on! Poor dog, is it in therapy now? And how about the cat? :-)

Oh yes and huge congrats on the ribbon! Woot!
