The other day I was watching the new episode of Doctor Who while sat on the sofa, and about half-way the episode I suddenly realised that my dog was sat upright watching it as well! But is it more of a case of the dog copying what I was doing, or are some dogs just naturally nerdy? Well, this lot certainly are…
10 – “Come at me with that X-wing fighter again and I will bite it!”
There was always going to be a few Star Wars themed dogs in this list. But this poor Pooch has a head cone on that its owner thought would look better with some Death Star decals on it. But needless to say the dog is not happy at all, but that might have more to do with the low quality of the drawing of its owner.
9 – A Link to the Tree
I think that I would have definitely have dressed up my dog if I had one during the time of playing Zelda. The image of this dog really seems to suit his costume. Brave, heroic and slightly medieval. And of course very nerdy indeed.
8 – Battle Pup
With an owner that can knit and a nerd Yorkie that is happy to go into battle with the best of them, you end up with a photo that is not only funny but also really cool as well. My dog is just lucky I can’t knit to save my life!
7 – Bulldog Power!
Strangely the most muscular legs of the Bulldog seems to pull this costume off rather nicely! But it is the mask that really finishes it off. A true cartoon nerd dog if ever I saw one. I bet he was a big fan of Turner and hooch back in its day as well.
6 – “For Gods sake Jim, I’m a Dog not a Spaceship!”
The face of this poor dog is utter bemusement! Maybe his real beef is with the low quality of the costume rather than the actual theme. I have to admit that I would laugh hard if I saw this mutt at my door come Halloween time.
5 – The Tree Dwellers
They might be small and love trees a lot, but they are always up for a fight. And then there are Ewoks. (See what I did there?) Anyway, these costumes are perfect and really suit that rough and wild style of fur that these breeds of dog seem to have.
4 – Don’t make him angry!
Looking just as muscular as the real hulk comes this bulk of a dog. If ever there was a personality of this dog to come out, it had to be the Hulk. But the ripped trousers all torn on the back of the dog is a real bonus. I just hope that green dye is animal-friendly.
3 – BATPUG!
It is the face of a pug that makes all the images of them in Batman and any other fancy dress costume images look so funny. It is as if they can’t work out what is going on around them all the time, and the look of bemusement and puzzlement on this ones face is priceless.
2 – Super Corgio
It is not often you see a Corgi dressed up as the favourite dog of the Queen herself can be quite nippy! So you don’t see people dress them up because they won’t let them. But for whatever exchange of treat or bribe, this one has gone along with it. Maybe he gets to rag about all those cool cushions afterwards, or maybe he really is a big fan of the Jumping Plumber!
1 – The Whovian Dogs
Now, this should put a smile on the face of most animal lovers or nerds. I just can’t decide who I love the most, is it TARDIS dog that fits those blue colours perfectly, or is it Doctor Dog who looks exactly like Colin Baker? Well, I can’t decide, but I think this photo proves that dogs can indeed be just as nerdy as their human owners.
