Howl-o-ween Party Too Cute For Words!

Friday, October 31st, 2008

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!

We had a great time at our Halloween party here at Dogtopia of Tysons! Stay tuned to read all about it and see the cute photos we snapped!

Now that our Halloween party is behind us, it’s time to focus on Dogtopia’s nation-wide costume contest! Dogtopias across the country were faced with tough decisions this year as so many of you submitted wonderfully creative photos for this year’s contest!

But ultimately a top dog had to be chosen from each store and the online voting is officially open in the 2008 Dogtopia Howl-O-Ween Costumer Contest! Representing Dogtopia of Tysons Corner is Penelope as “Animal” from the Muppets!


It’s all in your hands (or paws), so cast your vote now and be sure to pass the contest along to your friends!

A 5-Day Daycare Pass to Dogtopia is up for grabs – not to mention bragging rights for the next year!

Good luck to all our great contestants!
