Best Seattle Doggie Halloween Parties & Parades

Dog Halloween costumes events Seattle Times

Seattle Times Doggie Halloween Gallery

I think dog Halloween parades, dog Halloween parties, and dog Halloween costumes are the bees knees. My dog Pipa, however, has tried to make me an opponent of doggie dress-up time. She has made it clear that under no circumstances will she be wearing the ridiculously super neato harem costume; apparently she won’t even be wearing a t-shirt. The only way I could enter a people/pooch costume contest is if I dressed like her. So basically, she insists on raining on my doggie Halloween parade…. but that doesn’t mean she has to rain on everyone else’s!!!

Here’s a list of the best dog Halloween parades and Dog-O-Ween parties taking place in Seattle this weekend. If anyone’s participating please send pics, I’d love to do a collage – maybe Pipa will take the hint.

My Top Pick

Cutest Halloween Dog Costumes This Season!

Cute Halloween Dog Costumes

Somehow this only got 1 star on Amazon. Presumably it was from the dog.

This is the time of year when dogs have to put on their game face and just accept the fact that humans are stupid.

There is not one reason on earth why your dog needs to dress up like a lobster, but it will happen so fido just has to suck it up and be happy they’re not dressed like a Whoopie Cushion…. Oh wait, the Whoopie cushion costume is totally on my list of this season’s cutest dog costumes!!!!

Clearly, a Frenchie or a Pug in ANYTHING is gonna look cute, but these picks for cutest dog halloween costumes of the season will make any dog look adorable/pissed off!

If someone out there goes with any of these costumes send me a pic!

[Note: Some of these cover a dog’s ears. This can be really disconcerting as they can’t hear properly. So if your dog has a problem with headgear, try cutting holes out so their ears will be exposed. They’ll still totally hate you for putting them in a costume, but at least their seething anger will be tamed to a smoldering dislike.]
