What will your pet transform into this Halloween?

It’s a bit of a toss-up about which part of Halloween is more fun…the candy or the costumes. Fortunately, as humans, we can indulge in both! Pets, though, have to keep their paws away from all that sugar. It can just be a bad idea. There’s still ways they can be involved: costumes. Of course you could just go out and buy one from the pet store, but what if you want to indulge a little DIY project?

Here’s one that’s easy enough. Just wrap your pup or cat in a snug blanket and re-enact the bike scene from ET: The Extraterrestrial!


Another good use for a blanket or old shirt. A few eye-holes and you’ve got Ghost Dog!


These next two are a bit fancier, but if you’ve a deft hand with clippers and access to a little non-toxic hairspray, you can turn your pup into a whole other creature! Apparently these pup-paintings are popular in China. Don’t worry, it doesn’t bother them at all, though your dog might suddenly look in the mirror and wonder why there’s a tiger in the house!
