Toad The French Bulldog Dresses Up As Different Character Every Day

Toad The French Bulldog Dresses Up As Different Character Every Day

Dog lovers, this one's for you. Meet Toad the French bulldog, who is dressing up as a different famous character every day in October for a Halloween series.

Toad, from Dallas, Texas takes his dressing up very seriously. In fact, he's already appeared as Sebastian from the Little Mermaid, Elton John, MC Hammer, Napoleon Dynamite and Dwight Shrute from The Office.

Toad's owner, Amy Herrington, 30, says: "My favourite one is the LaFawnduh one from Napoleon Dynamite.

"The way he looked down in the photo really captured Kip from the movie. We use silly characters from our favourite movies," Amy, an attorney, said.

"A lot of the clothes we buy are kids' clothing. We don't buy them as costumes."

Amy said she got Toad back in February, right before coronavirus lockdown happened.

Over their time stuck inside together, she bonded with the pup, and it wasn't long before she'd made him his own social media pages, so friends could check in on him.

"We got into making a fun little page while we stuck inside, trying the TikTok thing and Instagram.

"My husband isn't as into it as me, but it takes two people. Someone has to hold onto a treat while we take the photos," she said.

Other costumes that Amy and her partner are considering are Mrs Doubtfire, a garden gnome and a Chia pet.

"My husband likes Lord of the Rings, so maybe we'll dress Toad up as Frodo as well," she laughed.

What started off as a fun project has now turned into pretty successful influencer career for little Toad, should he ever wish to be a doggy blogger.

As a result of Amy's costuming and Toad's modelling expertise, Toad's fledgling Instagram page has already amassed over 13 thousand followers.

"Honestly, it's been really fun to see the Instagram grow," Amy mused. "I don't know if any of our posts could be considered viral, but we've had a few that got hundreds of thousands of views."
