1. The more intimidating the costume, the less intimidating the pup. Which makes the costume way better.
Like little Nola who showed up as the least intimidating spider you’ve ever seen.
Or this teacup poodle who showed up as a shark (which in hindsight might have been a little too ambitious).
Seriously, we’re gonna need a smaller boat for these sharks.
If this is what the devil actually looked like, we would all be knocking down the door to Hell.
2. There were more Bob Ross’s than you would expect.
I guess Halloween really brings out your true colors.
And sometimes those true colors are Bob Ross.
3. WE FOUND WALDO!
He was WAY cuter than I remember from those books when I was a kid.
4. Pumpkins were PSYCHED.
“ERMAGERD I’M THE CUTEST PUMPKIN AT THIS PARADE GIMME ALL THE BELLY SCRATCHES PLZ.”
Or Hobie Wan Kenobi who was just really really excited about life. Of course his name is a pun. Look at that face.
5. Lobsters were…not psyched.
“Um, did anyone order this lobster with an extra side of SASS?”
6. The pups at this parade knew how to #treatyoself. Literally.
Like Monty The Doodle who managed to kill it as a Hostess snack. The two pieces of hay dangling from his mouth were just icing on the pupcake.
Or this DELICIOUS Corgi.
Or this fuzz face. Why yes, we WOULD love some fries with that tail shake.
Or Eames the Bulldog who is a master of all things canine cuisine.
Speaking of cuisine, Noodles appropriately went as a College Freshman Meal Plan (aka Cup O Noodles)
And then I saw THE HAPPIEST PUPPIN HOT DOG THAT HAS EVER EXISTED. (Guess he hasn’t heard about that human D.N.A. thing yet).
7. Even the royal pups made an appearance.
“I am King Malcolm. Bow wow down.”
8. The pugs REALLY nailed it this year.
Doug The Pug made a great Harry Pawtter.
Not sure if he was a king, or a pimp, so we’re gonna go ahead and call him the King of Pimps. (Note to self: Always bring a refill of Courvoisier).
9. Things got a little sexy at one point.
Watch out Playboy Bunnies, @queenbillieburg is coming to steal yo man.
And if you ever wondered what puppy cleavage looks like, here you go.
10. If you are a poodle or a doodle, you are basically just a living teddy bear.
Case in point: Teddy Roosevelt aka @teddygramnyc
Dogs or beanie babies I really can’t tell.
11. I officially found my spirit animal.
A WHOOPIE CUSHION. I am in ruv.
12. You can’t go wrong when you dress a dog as another animal.
TURTALLY nailed it.
“What do you mean I have WINGS but I CAN’T fly?”
13. Pit Bulls will always melt your heart.
This adorable duo went as my Facebook newsfeed!
14. When in doubt, bring out the sombrero.
Honestly that’s just a great motto for life in general.
15. Pups don’t care what they are for Howloween, as long as they get to be with their hoomans.
Sometimes you just gotta get a little cheesy.
