To us (and most of you, apparently) dressing up your pet is the most natural thing in the world. One the best things about having a pet is being able to dress him with feathers and baggy clothes and not have him drag you into his therapist's office 20 years later....
We held a Halloween event at both shelters today, in Oakland and Dublin, to give a chance for pet owners and adopters to show off their finest costumes. Our Hallo-WOOF-een! costume contest was judged by Carolyn McArdle (from KKIQ) in the Tri-Valley and Sherry Brown (from KOIT) in Oakland.
We had a bunch of winners (not all of whom are shown below) and here are a few of our visitors:
A Tired Busy Bee...
Poor OllieDog. Barely anyone wanted to take a pic of his face; they all wanted the cute jeans' butt with the tail sticking out.
We were privileged to receive the Famous Hugh Hefner, with the his bunny, Charlotte. Smashing, both of them. We were concerned that Charlotte was being exploited but she assured me she enjoyed her bunny ears.
You probably can't tell from the photo, but Nacho was dressed as Curious George. Easily one of my favorite costumes, but unfortunately, with the stiff little dog competition, Nacho went home empty handed except for all his Trick-or-Treating toys.
