It’s more fun to answer the ringing doorbell on Halloween when your pet is dressed in a fun Halloween costume. Waiting eagerly to greet happy trick-or-treaters, your dog has no idea how cute he is, and of course ,the cat doesn’t care.
Little kids squeal with surprise and parents laugh hysterically as the door opens to find a canine pirate or ballerina, tiny cat clown or barking shark, miniature Pope, or even a dog in a Luke Skywalker or Chewbacca costume.
Which look does your pet prefer? Glamorous, humorous, silly or scary? You can’t go wrong when your kitty is dolled up in a Red Riding Hood costume or your puppy is decked out in a Michael Jackson wig. If scary is the look you want, check out the monster costumes or Tyrannosaurus Rex.
There are hundreds of different costume choices and ideas no matter how big or small your pet. If you’ve got a finicky animal, you might try something light like a scarf or set of moose ears. If your pet loves the idea of strutting her stuff, you can’t go wrong with a full set of jewelry and a tiara. And if your dog is the man of the house, send him to the door to delight the kids fully dressed in a doggie tuxedo, complete with bow tie collar.
If your pet doesn’t mind and won’t be insulted, try a food suit. How about a taco, hot dog, or banana split?
And don’t forget, you and your pet can wear fun and fabulous matching costumes to Halloween parties and to delight your neighborhood trick-or-treaters.
