Halloween Costumes for Dogs: Cute or Ridiculous?
Halloween is right around the corner. All the kids are excited to put on their costume, go trick-or-treating and collect all the candy that they can. That is the tradition of Halloween. Adults dress up and usually consume too much of that liquid gold and make a fool of themselves. Halloween doesn’t stop there though: people have started to get their dogs in the Halloween festivities.
I was recently looking for a Halloween costume online. I was scrolling through all the pages and nothing looked interesting, so I clicked animal costumes on the side. I didn’t know what I got myself into to. This particular website had 12 pages worth of dog costumes. The dogs look completely miserable and ready to bite the next hand that tries to secure another velcro strap on its body.
Dressing your dog up can be cute, but I can’t get over how ridiculous the costumes are. It’s like the dogs know how silly they look. I did see a few pictures where the owner is dressed up as a character similar to a dog: an owner dressed as a storm trooper and the dog dressed as Yoda. I don’t understand that one, but hey it’s a free country and you can dress how you want with your dog, but that also means you are subject to a picture being taken and shared on social media.
