There’s something about Halloween that just makes us feel alive. Whether it be dressing up in costume, going trick-or-treating with friends and family, or getting together to watch scary movies under blankets – we love this time of year!
And while some people may think only humans celebrate “All Hallows Eve,” there is no doubt our dogs have fun too – as proven by these adorable photos online showing them decked out from head (and tail) to toe like their favorite characters, movie themes, and superheroes/supervillains… alongside owners who aren’t afraid share their photos giving the rest of us plenty of opportunities for laughter and enjoyment.
We have put together a list of our favorite pet and owner Halloween costumes to give you some ideas for your costumes this year and ensure that you have a spooktacular Halloween. Trick or Treat!
