Ahhh Howl-o-ween…where the adogable dogs and animals get dressed in their spookiest costumes to get their pumpkins filled with dog treats and win prizes for the best dressed costumes.  This weekend might as well be Halloween proper for pets as it is probably one of the busiest Pet Events weekend I have ever seen here!

For those of you who missed our Pet Events Newsletter this week, GASP, here is the run down of events.  Oh and please don’t dress up your dog if he or she doesn’t like it!
