Pet Costumes: A Trick or A Treat?

Dressing up your furry friends for Halloween is not only fun, but also trendy and easy. With such a vast array of options, from Superman to Snooki to devils and dinosaurs, the possibilities are endless. Pet costumes, especially for dogs, are gaining popularity and for a multitude of reasons. The costumes are inexpensive and can even be handmade, people can coordinate costumes to match their pets, and the costumes are cute and funny.

This year, I am dressing up my six-month-old Yorkshire terrier as a princess. This will be her first time experiencing the holiday of treats; the trick for me will be keeping the costume on her all night.
