Mad about plaid + win tickets to the Winnipeg Pet Show!

title Pumpkin spice lattes, chunky sweaters, and plaid. Three things that just scream fall to me.

I’m not going to lie, I absolutely love plaid. There’s something about that checkered pattern that is so iconically fall and Canadian that I could wear it day in and day out. When I saw this plaid Halloween shirt (it’s technically a lumberjack costume) for dogs at HomeSense I just had to buy it for Ziggy.

Like mother, like son, so I pulled out my buffalo-check plaid last weekend. This shirt is actually a men’s dress shirt from H&M that I got a few years ago that I love wearing overtop of black tights and a black tank top for a casual fall look. You can also pair it with a fur vest if it gets chilly outside, or with a belt to dress it up a little bit. To make the outfit super seasonal appropriate, pair the outfit with a neutral eye and a berry lip that just screams autumn.


Every year I buy Ziggy a new Halloween costume and if you love dressing up your dog, make sure you check out the Winnipeg Pet Show, happening next weekend, October 15-16, 2016 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg. The show is presented by the Winnipeg Veterinary Care Group and is a weekend dedicated to people who love their pets.  Although there will be tons of pet-related products and fun, family entertainment, including a pet fashion show (I *cannot* wait), CKC Breeders Showcase and X-Treme Dogs, plus Play Zone, Adoption & Rescue Haven, Kitty Corner, Fish & Bird World, Critter Corner and Reptile Island. Tickets are $12, kids 12 and under are free. You can find out more info at their official site.

If you are in the Winnipeg area and are obsessed with animals like me, you’re in luck! I’m giving away four pairs of tickets to some lucky winners! All you have to do is either leave me a comment below with what your favourite animal is, retweet this message, comment on my Facebook post, or leave me a comment on Instagram. I’ll pick the winners on October 13 and you must be following me on social media so I can contact you.

If you don’t win tickets, they also have some pretty fetch ticket offers. Donate $2 to adoption and rescue groups and $2 from every ticket of this type will be donated to Winnipeg local rescue and adoption organizations. There is also a Me+3 4-pack ticket offer. Unfortunately you can’t bring your pets to the show, but I’m sure those sweet angels will be so excited to see what you get them (they’ll be wagging their little tails at the door).

Let me know if you are planning on attending the Winnipeg Pet Show this year! Also, anyone else dressing their dog up for Halloween?
