Want to see what happens when you cross cute dogs and Halloween?
Ipswich First went along to the Bad Wolf Boutique in Orion Springfield for a Hooowl-oween Party. The results are adorable.
Camilla Fowler-Lock is the owner of Bad Wolf Boutique, which she only started this year in June.
“The original idea was to have a dog shop for big dogs because most people have big dogs,” she says.
“My dog Buddy is a Malamute who is also a resuce. We have had him for almost two years. He inspired me to start the business.
“I paid $280 for a life jacket. It was the only one I could find in Australia to fit him.”
Camilla started at the markets and moved into her current location in Orion in September.
“There is nothing like this around here,” she said.
The unique store holds “doggie” discos, birthday parties, doggie daycare, dog café, dog boutique, dog training and puppy school.
“We have a charity event once a month and they are a lots of fun. You’ve got to give back to the community,” she said.
Police tips for trick or treaters
If you are heading out trick or treating this Halloween, Queensland Police have some tips to keep kids safe.
- Be accompanied by a mother or father monster at all times (or another responsible witch, ghost or vampire); Black cats love to slink around, but you should walk, not run, between houses and stick to the footpath rather than the road.
- Black cats don’t want to be seen, and for good reason, but if you wear black, it will reduce your visibility to passing motorists;
- Never enter a stranger’s house, even if they have invited you in after knocking on their door; and
- Consider joining your friends on your neighbourhood adventure – there is safety in numbers.”
