Captain 'n' Hammille

[Breaking News Bumper Music]

We interrupt the A & E Cold Case marathon to bring you this redonklous story of two costumed pets battling for the win over at the MSO/C.O. costume contest.



We now return you to regularly scheduled programming. In the meantime, the watchdogs will continue to keep score.

Oh! Those are Phantom Tollbooth watchdogs!

That being said? The baked ham with pineapple is KILLING the aviator.

I don't know Karen . . . I'm lovin' the aviator. It says sleek . . . it say sexy . . . it says sophisticated.

I am so in love with the Captain. The little helmet and scarf just slay me. Coffee, tea, or snorgle, Captain?

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 03:07 PM

That's no captain!

That's the Red Baron!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 03:08 PM

wait, is there really a Cold Case marathon? Because I can leave work..

the ham loaf is killing me.. and that's a weird way to die, so I'll probably end up a cold case...

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 03:11 PM

OK, the ham is cute, but the Red Baron ferret is KILLING ME. Why didn't I think of that when I had my kneesocks?

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 03:14 PM

Okay well the brown baron is adorable of course and the hamdog top notch but the oh so clever watchdogs really made me laugh

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 03:20 PM

The ham kills me, and I love the ferret aviator. I don't get the dogs. :(

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 03:35 PM

Haha, I love the watchdogs!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 03:46 PM

There's no Cold Case marathon. Bummer.

Red Baron? Huh. I totally saw the ferret as Amelia Earhart.

The watchdogs are keeling me! Espesh cause the yellow lab looks like he's laughing! The ham costume is great for originality, and the little aviator ferret, OMG so cute!! I can't stop looking at Martha's site... how many freaking pages of pets in costumes are there?!?!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:00 PM

Ok - the ferret wins the cute but the ham is def the most original! And I hate to admit it, but it took me a second to get the "watch dogs." I blame hunger.

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:06 PM

Ha! I love the "Tock" dogs!

For all you Phantom Tollbooth neophytes, this is Tock:

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:06 PM

The Tock puppies are so appropriate for this time of year (Tocktober)! I loved that book. I always wanted to eat my words like at the banquet or conduct a color orchestra.

That said, I'm really impressed at keeping the ferret's hat on his head. Plus that little scarf!

I'm definitely up for a slice of that ham too! How adorable!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:12 PM

The two dogs, when put together, are a 5 o'clock shadow :)

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:15 PM

Maybe it's reverse of hunger, or something, but I didn't see the "ham with pineapples" thing. The "ham" is flourescent pink on my screen and looks really unappetizing. I was trying to make it pineapple upside down cake, but that didn't work, either. I'll go for the Red Baron(ness?), though. Watchdogs would please the BF. He likes puns.

Oh man, love looking over the pets in costume. Cats are always my fave, they look all pissy!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:17 PM

The aviator is a good friend of mine, his official site is here:


There's an adorable baby picture of him there.

I totally thought the 'watch dogs' were 5 o'clock shadows!! sooo cute!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:22 PM

Ah, I see.. the watchdogs have clocks on their 'tocks!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:22 PM

The ferret looks like he's stepped right out of Wind in the Willows! I love it :D

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:23 PM

The ferret ties with the bun in the tux! But I love the devil-may-care look in the eyes of the ferret! He wears that costume well!

The hovers are now texted!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:40 PM

They are all very clever and cute, but I think the pineapple hat is the silliest :)

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:54 PM

Amelia Ferrhart!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 04:59 PM

The Phantom Tollbooth - I hadn't thought of that book in ages but it just came up yesterday! I was thinking about the character who was trying to solve a problem and scribbled and scribbled and then shouted "Seventeen!" Or something like that. Can anyone help me? I think of that sometimes in problem solving situations but I can't really remember the story. Guess I need to read the book again!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 05:13 PM

Amelia Ferrhart is a cute nickname, but this little cutie is a boy! His name is Tank!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 05:15 PM

Eyes glazing over? Perfect!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 05:39 PM

Pineapple ham all the way! How cute would it be if it was a HAMSTER as pineappple ham?! *Breaks out needles and felt for teeny hammie costume*

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 05:51 PM

Did you notice they're SYNCHRONIZED watch dogs? lol

It's hard to choose between those two costumes, but I guess I'll have to go with the ham loaf pooch. It's just such a weird idea for a costume, and it made me laugh.

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 06:55 PM

Amy J - Isn't that the Humbug? When they were in the city of numbers, and the Mathematician gave Milo, Tock, and the Humbug a complicated-looking formula to solve, and I think only Milo got it right. The Humbug, of course, is never right. :)

I love that book! Classic.

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 06:56 PM

Imagine little horns and a pointy tail on a hamster.

Deviled Ham...ster


 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 06:56 PM

Amelia Ferrhart! Hahahaha! Good one, dub1!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 07:23 PM

Ooh, ooh! I got the watchdogs right away! Love that book! A childhood favorite, read many times over.

The ham dog is a little creepy for me. But Amelia Ferrhart is certainly rockin' the cute!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 07:24 PM

"eyes glazing over" - lol - that's great.

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 07:44 PM

Thank Goodness those dogs are set for happy hour...its been a long week and its only Wednesday :(

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 08:04 PM

That poor ham-dog looks mortified.

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 08:37 PM

Thanks, Jen! The Humbug! I'm definitely inspired to grab a copy and read the book again.

Meanwhile, Hamdog is inspired, but Amelia "Tank" Ferrhart is completely adorable. Love the cocky grin!

 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 08:37 PM

So cute- great costumes! Have you seen this cute Obama dog- too funny.


 |  Oct 08, 2008 at 11:13 PM

Okay, I love Phantom Tollbooth, but... No one commented on the alt text! Tick tocks!

[To be fair, I didn't think of it first... - Ed.]

I realise this comment is going to upset a lot of people, but...I just LOATHE seeing animals in costume; it's not cute, it's disturbing and undignified and degrading and says a lot about us humans...

 |  Oct 09, 2008 at 01:10 AM

Ferret's pilot costume looks just about right - and I would have believed it if someone told me the ferret was a toy.

"glazing over" - ha!

Watchdogs, "Phantom Tollbooth" - loved that book. I like that the costume idea is simple but cute and clever.

The ferret takes it. The cold case 'cold cut' is cute, too, as are the 'watchdogs'- very clever!

 |  Oct 09, 2008 at 05:02 AM

And the winner is (or should be b/c of how freaking awesomely creative and wackadoodley)...ham dog!! Superb.

 |  Oct 09, 2008 at 05:42 AM


The pineapple slice on the head - I'm dyin' over here!

 |  Oct 09, 2008 at 05:54 AM

@nads-- A Hamster as a tiny ham? Single servings! Portion control!

 |  Oct 09, 2008 at 06:40 AM

Oh, fat little ham, I love you! You don't need the pineapple, you're already sweet enough.

 |  Oct 09, 2008 at 06:43 AM

Aaaaaaauggggghhhhh! Je cannot choose!

 |  Oct 09, 2008 at 07:03 AM

H'ok so . . . if little aviator ferret is a boy, then we could call him Emilio Ferrhart. All in favor say, "Ay, ay captain."
