DOGGY DRESS UP
Halloween is a day away, but that didn’t stop hundreds of New York City dogs from participating in a pet Halloween costume party.
The seventh annual event was sponsored by Animal Fair Magazine which often features dog friendly celebrities on its cover.
Dogs arrived with their owners dressed in costumes such as Superman, Miss New York and a farmer.
“We’ve got the whole cast of ‘Wizard of Oz.’ We’ve got everything from Superman to Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick,” Wendy Diamond who is the editorial director for the magazine said. “We have dogs dressed as cats. We have transvestite dogs. We have Little Red Ridinghood dogs. We have basketball players, soccer players, football players. We’ve got every kind of dog dressed up in every kind of outfit.”
The event wasn’t just for entertainment. All of the proceeds benefited the Mayor’s Alliance of New York City.
A Michael Jackson impersonator took to the stage to entertain the dogs and their owners.
Following the performance, some of the dogs strutted their four paws on the runway while some of the other pooches watched from the audience.
Meanwhile the audience were encouraged to cheer the pets on and clap as loudly as possible.
Some of the costumes were traditional, but some owners and their pets stretched their imaginations.
Costumes that garnered the loudest applause included a doggie Britney Spears, a pimp with his working lady, and a dog dressed as a drug mule.
