For the first day of Halloween, my dairy farm gave to me, a puppy dressed as sushi.

Houston-area humane dairy farm Blue Heron Farm is ringing in the spooky season with the most adorable frights, bringing the internet 31 days of precious, sleeping puppies dressed as everything under the sun—nigiri included.

Yes, it appears the farm has a litter of li’l angels birthed by their dog Harriet, and the owners’ first thought was: “Let’s give the internet some wholesome Halloween content for a change.”

Lisa Seger, one of the farm’s operators who is running to be a Texas state representative, actually named the puppies after other Texas legislature candidates when they were born on Sept. 29. Seger told the Daily Dot via email that she and her husband Christopher are big Halloween fans and are known for dressing up their goats. However, after accepting to foster Hattie, Seger thought dressing up the puppies would attract adopters.

So, she planned the first sushi costume but didn’t plan for the daily installment of Halloween puppy bliss until the posts began taking off on Facebook. She accepted the challenge, however, making costumes between her morning coffee and evening dinner, all the while running the dairy farm and her political campaign.

Just look at these plated sushi babies!

And this one, who seems pretty excited to be a multicolored-sock mermaid.

And this one who looks like they’re sleeping on the job as Superman.

There are also some bugs, bees, and bats in the mix, too.

And the bee even has its flower counterpart.

Too bad this tiny turtle isn’t exploring sewage tunnels and ravaging pizza.

You’re gonna hear them roar!

To be honest, looking at these puppies is part of a balanced breakfast.

OK, OK, I’m out of puppy puns. Please enjoy the rest of these puppy costumes.

Yes, the costumes are immensely cute, but they’re probably not going to last a full night of trick-or-treating; Seger says they’re “really poorly made, LOL” since they only have to last the 30 seconds it takes to get the puppy costume money shot. She only has eight more days to go, and she thinks she has it in her.

Besides, she’s hoping that the series raises awareness for pet overpopulation and fostering—the rescue they work with, 4 Paws Farm, runs solely on donations, and the amount of foster animals they can help is “directly controlled by people’s willingness to chip in.”

“I figure the world could use a little happiness now,” Seger said. “I’m hoping this newfound attention we are getting will remind people how important it is to spay and neuter their pets to help address our vast pet overpopulation issue.”
