So with Halloween fast approaching and adults and kids alike choosing what they are going to have as their Halloween costume, a lot of owners are also thinking of either making or buying a dog Halloween costume.

What could be cuter than going out at Halloween with your dog dressed up, either to match the rest of the family or in his or her own personal Halloween costume?

Some of these dog Halloween costumes will seriously make you laugh and will totally entertain your neighbors or friends.

      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)

      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!

      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 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!

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