Happy Howl-oween! We’re just a few days away from the sounds of happiness and exuberant yelling of “Trick or Treat” as little ones go door-to-door for tasty Halloween treats. You’re also sure to see some four-legged friends out and about with their families trick or treating or helping greet the ghosts, goblins, princesses, and superheroes when they come to the door, and chances are those four-legged friends will be dressed up.
Did you know over $370 million dollars is spent each year in North American on Halloween costumes for pets? It’s true … and I can totally see it because I have contributed a lot to that total over the years (much to the chagrin of my dog Gucci).
Want to dress up your pet but not sure what to dress them up as?
