10 dog-inspired pumpkins for Halloween

October 14th, 2020

It’s that time of the year again when things get spooky, the leaves start falling, and the pumpkins get carved. The old Jack’O Lantern is the iconic symbol for Halloween, and with each new Halloween, people find more and more ways to put their own spins on Jack’O Lanterns.

Here, we’re taking a look at pumpkins with carvings of good boys on them. Everyone loves dogs, and everyone loves Halloween. So it’s a perfect combination if you ask me.

1. “You think this is funny?”

I’d say whoever made this one did a fantastic job capturing the likeness. The pumpkin’s sides are about as flat as an actual Pug’s face so that probably helped.

2. “Look, it’s me!”

Golden Retrievers are angels in dog form, and people love them so much that they’ll make Golden Retriever-themed everything. Not that anyone has any problems with it. A pumpkin bearing a Retriever’s golden smile should put a smile on the faces of even the scariest ghouls and monsters.

3. Almost looks more real than the actual dog.

The carver for this one is clearly no mere amateur. That form and detail is astounding, and it almost feels like a waste to just have this on a Halloween front porch. This seems more at home in an art gallery than on the lawn. I’m sure the Pomeranian thinks so too.

4. The softest looking pumpkin.

Dogs are many things, and soft is one of their stand-out qualities. There’s nothing like a snuggle from a soft, warm doggo to take your stress away. So being able to capture that softness on a pumpkin warrants some mighty praise and credit.

5. Pumpkins with a side of sausage.

That’s what I call capturing the essence of the subject right there. Keeping it simple, but recognizable. The subject doesn’t look so keen on being photographed next to his portrait, though.

6. It’s a Cor-ghoul!

As far as smaller breeds go, Corgis are about as popular as they get. Not in a million years would you ever find a Corgi scary, but that might change with that eerily smiling Corgi pumpkin with the glowing eyes. Maybe it’s true to life and the real one on the left just hasn’t transformed yet.

7. Pumpkins and Shepherds.

German Shepherds will protect you from just about everything, and I’m betting good money that they won’t hesitate to take on any scary monsters and ghouls for you too. That’s as loving and protective as they get, and capturing their loyal, loving likeness on a pumpkin is as cute as it gets.

8. A pumpkin with many folds.

English Bulldogs aren’t exactly known for the lengths of their snouts. The brachycephalic breed has one of the flattest faces of all dogs, which makes it perfect to recreate on the side of a pumpkin.

9. His wrinkliness for all to see.

On the topic of wrinkliness and folds, the only breed that can give a Bulldog a run for its money is the Shar Pei. This breed has more folds than a wrinkly shirt. Seems like capturing all those folds on a pumpkin carving was the challenge someone was looking for.

10. She got your nose right.

Labradors and Golden Retrievers are the most calm, loving and friendly breeds of all. Almost nothing will make them lose their temper, but I’m not sure if they’re immune to insecurity from having their faces captured on photos or pumpkins.

With some practice, you could totally make your own Dogg’o Lanterns too. Just visit those links and find some inspiration. Besides, it’s not like your pooch cares if you get their face wrong.
