We’ve always had a thing for Halloween, especially all the costumes and well, my little one and her pup are seriously just the best of friends. So one day back in August while she was playing dress up, she put one of her crowns on Doc (her pup) and he just sat there and was so patient with her while they played. It was in that moment that the idea hit me! I told my husband, we should dress them up together as characters for 31 days of Halloween! He just laughed because well, another crazy idea from me ;) BUT hey, here we are!

We’ve been sharing their costumes everyday on Instagram and Facebook (@positivelyoakes) with the hashtag #BlakeXDoc and it’s been a hit! I’ve been working on this since August, ordering costumes, pieces, finding the perfect accessories and even DIYing a lot of it, especially for Doc. She has had a blast.

A lot of people have asked — how in the world do you get them to sit still and take the picture?! And honestly, she LOVES it and they’re the best of friends so he just hangs out. Obviously every picture hasn’t been easy, but I don’t force em’ to do anything they’re not into, example — her Cinderella picture, she was running away and Doc wanted to play with the other dogs he could see in the park. We just roll with it and it’s been a blast! Everyday she wakes up now and says – “MAMA, is it time for Doc and I to play dres up!?”
