My dog revels in all things doggy, but one night a year it’s fun (for me, at least) to give her a chance to show another side, her froggy side, for instance or perhaps that she’s a little banana. This Halloween PetSmart has an assortment of adorable, fun Pet Halloween Dog Costumes by Top Paw for your canine compadre that fasten around the neck and body with two easy Velcro closures and instantaneously transform your dog into an adorable ladybug or creature of your choice. While Fido’s transformation is a fun trick, undoubtedly your furry friend will still appreciate a Halloween treat for being such a good sport!
Available online and in-store at PetSmart – http://www.petsmart.com for locations.
And what better place to show off Fido’s finery than the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade? Last year, there were dogs dressed as Lady Gaga, a peacock and an A train (complete with a stuffed rat). Enterprising owners stand to win prizes if their pooch is selected Best in Show, so start planning Fido’s outfit now. Donations of $5 are recommended. Trot down to Tompkins Square Park on Saturday at Ave A (between 7th & 10th Streets)
