Dressing up for Halloween is something that Sasha Hobson and her family love to do. However, this comes with challenges, mainly because seven dogs are included in their family.
Sasha said that wearing costumes during this season is something that they do every year. After getting all dressed, they have pictorial too. Their dogs have become used to it that when they hear the word “photoshoot,” they all jump to attention. That’s because they expect to get some treats after.
There are different breeds of dogs in the family. The smallest one is a Chihuahua mix, while the biggest is black Labrador, who between six to twelve years old.
Because Sasha’s family is such a diverse group, they often find it hard to come up with costumes that match the personality of each dog. Then, suddenly, Sasha found the perfect inspiration.
This is the first year that the family is celebrating Halloween with all seven pups, so they want to ensure to incorporate them all. At first, they thought of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” characters. Then, Sasha remembered “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

Sasha found clothes that resembled the dress of Snow White. Then, she bought fabric to make handmade costumes for her pups. Sasha’s mother-in-law helped her in designing and sewing the dogs’ clothes. They matched the pooches’ character to those that they’re portraying.
The only part that Sasha had some challenges was sewing and ensuring that they all fit. She said that the dogs are already used to doing costume fittings. So, as long as they see some treats, they don’t have a problem sitting still.
Some people might think that they’re crazy to have seven dogs. However, Sasha said that they love having them and wouldn’t trade them for anything. She considers them the most spoiled kids on their block.
