Adorable costumed K9s strutted their stuff at Dogtopia of Tysons on Sunday afternoon for our Howl-o-ween Party. Dogs and owners enjoyed goodies and mingling. Dogtopia owner Amy’s son Aiden was the official candy dispenser and took his job very seriously! The Dogtopia staff voted to determine the prize winners.
Bruno Dame edged out his siblings for Cutest in his pig costume, complete with hooves and curly tail. Bruno attends daycare every day with his sister, Emma, the purple monkey, and his foster sister, Jasmine, the jack-o-lantern.
Spookiest went to Wendy Schermerhorn, another daily daycare dog, in her devil dressed as a puggle, I mean puggle dressed as a devil costume.
Most Original was a unanimous decision, Princess Leia Noel the boxer as Pocahontas. Her human companion even dressed up to match!
Best Effort had to go to Lily Medina-Hamlin for bringing two costumes! Lily was adorable as a dinosaur and caveman. After her wardrobe change, she was so cute as Minnie Mouse. “Minnie” even got to play with Mickey, a happy shih-tzu who is a daycare regular and attended as Christmas Dog.
Several of the dogs had a little trouble keeping the head-gear parts of their costumes on as they romped around, but that just added to the silliness of it all! Click here to view all the adorable photos!
