The Judging of Halloween Costumes
It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon and Tompkins Square Park was packed to the gills. The 2013 Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade did not disappoint and yet again truly raised the bar on doggie Halloween outfits. Kobi, dressed as Indiana Jones (sans hat as he hates hats) and masculine, was ready to check out the scene.
After taking the subway and walking over to the park, we could see the crowds - dogs and owners in costumes were lined up around the fence to the area where the judging was taking place. Kobi was having a ball meeting and sniffing all the other dogs, but was a bit concerned having to dodge all the humans that were around.
We saw loads of costumes outside the arena and then went into the inner part of the park where the judging is. This is just an amazing sight of dogs and owners, that have obviously spent a lot of time and thought into these costumes. Not to mention, it's absolutely hilarious! Once you're in the inner park, contestants for the Dog Halloween Costume Contest line up at least twice around the stage. We were there to check out the scene, not to win an award. Seeing all these costumes was award enough for us.
There was loads of press and as such we've included the photos here from other media outlets,which we think came out really well. As you can imagine, it's hard to take great photos when there's a huge crowd of people and dogs in a small space.

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
