Forty-five Dogs in Cute Costumes

By

Canines of all sizes got dressed up this weekend to attend the Halloween Dog Parade and Costume Contest at the Tompkins Square dog run in NYC. In the event's 22nd year, Best in Show went to a beagle mix named Maddie who made a stunning E.T. with owners Bennet Leak as Elliot and Bret England as the Moon. Other highlights included Mama Biscuit, the bulldog, as Bjork in the Swan Dress, and our personal fave, another bulldog dressed as Mr. T. Click through our slideshow for the highlights — thankfully free of dogs in binders or other eye-rolling political references we're anticipating on humans come Oct 31.
