Normally I’m very much opposed to people dressing up their pets. The animals look miserable and I pity both them and their human parents who are obviously missing some kind of nutrient in their diets that turns them into crazy people who spend tons of money on clothes for animals who don’t need or want to wear clothes.
I don’t care what you say. I repeat. Animals. do. not. want. to. wear. clothes.
That being said, there’s a time and a place for everything. For example, my friend Hayden dressed his dog Pebbles up in some Hanukkah garb to have some professional portraits taken a few years ago. I’ll admit it, it’s ridiculously adorable. Plus, Hayden doesn’t make a habbit of dressing up Pebbles so it’s ok.
Also, my best friend Bia dresses up her dog Dominic in a costume (usually Superman) for Halloween every year.
This brings me to the ONE day of the year that it’s ok to dress up your dog. Halloween. Because if I have to strap on an uncomfortable costume, why shouldn’t Dominic have to too?
So, here is a list of the Halloween costumes for your pet that have my approval.
Y’all know I’m a big fan of the military so here’s Operation Flying Doggy
