I’m not sure who is cuter on this holiday – dogs or kids! I’ve seen some pretty adorable pet costumes this year…we will have to see the adorable-ness the trick-or-treaters bring tonight. Just remember, not all dogs are fond of this loud, door bell ringing holiday. Don’t feel bad about confining a not-so-social pooch to a back room. You might hear some growls and barks, but I assure you they will be much less anxious away from the hoards of kiddos hyped up on chocolate.
The ASPCA has a great list of Halloween Safety Tips that are definitely worth a read before the festivities begin tonight. The Humane Society has also complied a great list of ways to Spare Your Pet the Spooks this Halloween. Remember, that while you surely wouldn’t feed your dog chocolate intentionally, you might be so distracted by the costumes and excitement, you miss your furbaby jumping up on a counter or sneaking candy from careless child. (Refresh your memory on why chocolate is so bad for our pups here.) Make sure to keep your bowl of candy high and in your sights the whole night.
But now…for the pictures you’ve all been waiting for…
