A Tail Wagging Costume Parade

Updated on September 16, 2014

Hey People! See How Cute Us Dogs Are In Our Fancy Dress!

This cool Blues Dog is here at the annual Tompkins Square Costume Parade in New York City, ready to groove with a few of my canine friends. Going to get the lowdown on what they are thinking on a variety of issues. Stick with me and get a handle on what being a dog is really all about!

I'd like to first give a big wag of my tail to istolethetv over on flickr for taking all these fine pics of me and my hairy friends. Make sure you stop by and see even more of his stuff.

Now let's go meet some good dogs!

      What fun costumes! Of course, they do require one to have a dog who'd be willing to actually wear a costume ;-). (I dressed up my dog as a monster for his first Halloween and he managed to get out of the costume and shred it within about 10 minutes. Fitting, at least.)

      This is one of the funniest and most cleverly created lenses I've seen in awhile, well-done! The hippie & the wonderdog are two of my favorites.
