So, in the park this week I saw a sausage dog in a parka.

And this got me thinking. If dog owners dress their dogs up in coats, what else do they dress them up in? A brief look on the internet proved that my question should have been what don’t they dress them up in…And it seems that this time of year – Halloween – is peak time for dog fancy-dressers. Especially in America. In fact, I’m not sure where I’ve been for the last few years (clearly living in a box) but the fact that New York has a huge, annual Halloween Dog Parade seems to have passed me by. New Yorkers go wild dressing their dogs up in all sorts of ghoulish (and just plain weird) garb. Its fascinating to watch, but a bit like a karaoke bar, should be observed from a safe distance.

And so, because I’m feeling a little lazy this week, I thought I’d bring you a few of my favourite dog halloween costumes. …

This is a brilliant. Maybe because my parents have a Golden Retriever I’ve got a real soft spot for these dogs, but whatever who couldn’t resist giving these lovelies a treat?

I love the expression on this dog’s face, in that tiny brain, he really is Superman.

And, er, that’s it. Told you I was feeling lazy.
