Here's Zoey, all dolled up as Cleopatra in a hurriedly put together Halloween costume. Zoey, as you may remember is one of Yogi's (my grand-dog) girlfriends.
Not to be outdone, here's Tilley, Zoey's housemate, trying on her Wonder Woman costume from last year. Thank heavens it still fits! We just need to find the little crown that goes with it.
I'm not sure if most people have snacks on hand for dogs and cats that are out trick or treating. And I don't know if there will be any in my neighborhood, but maybe I'll lay in a selection of dog and cat treats just in case.
No, my own fur-babies won't be dressing up for Halloween. I asked Damian what he thought about the idea and he gave me a "You've-got-to-be-kidding" look.
Some pets really take to the idea and seem to enjoy the attention. Dogs more than cats, I'd guess.
How about you? Do you have any thoughts of dressing dogs and cats up in costumes to celebrate Halloween?
