Halloween is only a week away! Seriously, where has October gone?!
While most pets that hang out at the Embrace offices are rarely found sporting clothing, we definitely don't shy away from a good canine/feline Halloween costume. That's why we love our friends at PetSmart! They're always eager to show us the newest in spook-tacular Halloween costumes for our pets. In previous years, we've had Cooper the Lobster, Dracula Guizmo and more!
This year, our lucky costume tester was Ginger the Pom-a-Nauze (Pomeranian Schnauzer mix for those not up to speed on the hybrid lingo!). Her dad, Embracer Rich, selected an adorable pink skeleton costume from PetSmart's Martha Stewart Pets™ line. We were a little worried about sizing - Ginger is short and fluffy with a barrel chest - but hit our mark with a medium.
Can we please take a moment to notice just how cute this costume is?! There's a purple bow on the skeleton's head! The stretchy pink fabric fit Ginger like a glove and the quality is exceptional. Only down side? Like many dogs, Ginger is not a fan of wearing a hood. Luckily, the costume looks cute with or without the hood up.
So, will you be dressing up your furry best friend this Halloween? Whether headed to a Halloween fundraiser for your favorite local rescue or just passing out candy, a festive doggie dragon or cowboy cat is sure to bring a smile to friends' faces. Just be sure to keep your pets safe! Costumes should not be too big (tripping hazard!) or too small (cutting off circulation) and should never be worn when you aren't available to supervise your pet (the last thing you want is a Halloween trip to the emergency vet because a pair of Batman ears ended up in your Beagle's belly!).
We hope you have a happy Halloween!
