Aby-a-Day – October 20: Howl-o-Ween at Petsmart

Today Jacoby and I went to Petsmart to check out their “Howl-o-Ween” costume event. I mean, how could we resist?

I usually go to Petco, rather than Petsmart – nothing for or against either chain, it’s just that Petcos seem to have more urban-accessible stores (like the one in Manhattan) while Petsmarts seem to be found in more suburban stripmalls. There’s also one about 5 blocks from my mom’s house in Davis, too… So going to Petsmart is a bit like going to a different country: it’s similar, but excitingly different.

Jake went as Jacoby…It took me a little while to decide on his costume, but I ended up with his Red Sox uniform; that hat never fails to impress.

Thanks to a little misunderstanding with Siri, we just missed the in-store contest. But we did get there in time to get a Halloween photo taken. And Petsmart is having a big online costume contest, and I need to enter Angel in that, since she’s really not an in-store kind of girl.

I wasn’t in a costume, so I didn’t want to be in the photo with him, so Jake sat on the posing stool while the Petsmart people snapped his pic.

He actually sat on that stool for about ten minutes, while we waited for the photo to be printed and framed and I chatted with the staff. That’s my little posable action figure!

Next weekend, Petco is having their Halloween costume event…and you know we’ll be there, too.
