Halloween Costumes…..for pets

A lot of folks will be spending money on candy and costumes for Halloween this year, but apparently humans aren’t the only ones who’ll be dressing up in costume to celebrate the occasion.  I won’t lie and say I’ve never tried it, but I personally have never had a dog that appreciates being dressed up in anything.  I have a lot more fun dressing kids.  But if your kids are 4 legged, it’s probably a lot of fun for you and according to a recent survey, 16% of folks plan to dress up their animals this Halloween, despite the fact that you know those pets probably hate it. Overall, a pumpkin seems to be the most popular Halloween costume for dogs and cats, with a hot dog costume also pretty popular. Surprisingly, also making the Top Ten is a cat costume, which seems to be a pretty mean thing to do to a dog.

I have to say though, I love all the pictures I see on facebook of dogs that are dressed up for halloween.  There are some really creative people!!  Just make sure if you give the dogs a treat it’s not chocolate.
