celebrations in the streets, this entire weekend was filled with Halloween-happenings allover Chicago. You could barely turn the corner without bumping into a Where's Waldo or Miley Cyrus like-alike.
The pups tested out their Couples Costumes, Thing 1 and Thing 2, as we headed out to a new-to-us event: Dog trick-or-treating by Be Fido's Friend dog rescue. The pups' were able to wear their wigs the whole time, but with the wind sometimes it became a bit more of a Flock of Seagulls look:
Then, the pups actually got to go trick-or-treating. Nearly 30 local restaurants, bars and shops participated in dog-trick-or treating. Dogs were invited into their stores where the were handing out dog treats and often people treats and samples.
It included a lot of petting and handing out of treats where ever they went. It was Miss M's dream come true.
The sponsors were beyond nice as they welcomed the pups into their stores. Some of the restaurants even had mulled wine, lemonade, falafel and pizza for the people. We are excited to go back to support them. The event was really well done and the organizers did an amazing job.
The pooches got quite a lot of treats; enough to fill up 2 treat jars. We asked Miss M if she would like to donate her treats to dogs at the shelter who might not have gotten any treats for Halloween. Can you guess what she said?
What plans does everyone have for with their pups?
How we made their costumes (and wigs!)
