It was the first Halloween for Astrid, who was only nine or 10 weeks old. “So we thought he’d be, like, a Halloween sheriff,” said Figgins.

Astrid disliked the straps and collars. Luna, meanwhile, “just wants to jump over everyone because she likes people and dogs.”
Mazy, Stephanie Jacobson’s golden retriever, is modeling a Husker dress.
In the past, the two daughters of Jacobson had worn the clothes.

Jacobson, who lives on Grand Island, is a counselor at Hastings Middle School. Mazy, who frequents the school, is training to be a therapy dog.
