Costuming Your Dog for Howl’oween..As I See It 10.28.11
Pet Parents here’s the truth as I see it. And I will state for the sake of 100% transparency, for those who haven’t been reading this blog – I am an Authorized Vendor at a HUGE Howl’oween Costume Dog Parade/Vendor Fair & Adoption Fair this weekend. I will have closeouts of Dog Halloween accessories for sale. I’ve had 2 costumes this year. A Clown( sold) & a Rocker Girl Skeleton Embossed Tutu. I don’t care for the idea of full costumes on dogs, but I have no problem with hats, collars, bandanas, ties, accessories.
For the most part, dogs are not dolls. They are not here for us to dress up any way we feel like it for as long as we feel like it. Now don’t get me wrong. Chazz has a couple of t-shirts, a hoodie, a coat, bandana, even a bathrobe. I use these things on him when I think the situation warrants it.
Dressing your pet in costume (this goes for cats, ferrets, whatever you’ve got) is a once a year activity…for a limited amount of time.
Here he is with his prize, The Angel Dog Costume:
For the record, he appeared fine with the wings, wasn’t crazy about the halo. As soon as two photos were taken the costume came off of him.

Well, here’s hoping you & your pets have a Happy Howl’oween; Safe & Fun for all 4-legged & 2-legged creatures. Skeery, Woo!
