How cute! Too bad my dogs would eat the costumes instead of wearing them.

Thanks Karry and anj - for sure these dog costumes are so cute! I'm sure there must be some dogs who would fight you when you tried to get them on though!

Adorable. I am planning to incorporate my dog with mine and my boyfriends costumes. If we are pirates, she will be our parrot, if we are Dorthy and the Lion she will Todo. We are also considering Adam and Eve, and in that case I am not sure what she will be, God? Great Hub. Looking forward too more. Voted up.

Thanks for the comments - yes, I have a few friends in the US who will be dressing up their dogs for Halloween! I think they look so great but yes, like you say jenubouka, I'm not sure what the dogs would think if they could talk!

I have a friend who dresses her little min-pin up each year for an annual Halloween party and get together. He seems to love the extra attention this brings him. :o)
