By now I'm sure you guessed I really love Halloween. I love to decorate, I love to have Halloween parties, I love to see the kids in their costumes.

I also love to see animals dressed up. Some people come up with the best costumes for their pets.

I think some animals really like dressing up. Well, maybe not. But they sure do make me laugh.

I thought I would share some of the great costumes I've found pets wearing.

I cracked up when I saw this dog or should I say turkey.

I think this dog enjoys being the new Sheriff in town!

This poor little dog looks like she saw herself in the mirror and now is scared to death.

I wonder if it's a sin dressing your dogs up as nuns. LOL

Now I know I've seen spiders this big before but no one believed me. Well now I have a picture to prove it.

Come on! Can anyone look at that picture and not laugh?

This one just makes me say Awwww!

This group looks like they are really having fun. I think they learned that if you ring the door bell when you are dressed up you get people food. YUM! Smart dogs!

Even cats like to get in the fun. This little kitty is no bigger then a New York rat! Sorry New York...I've heard you guys have some of the biggest rats around.

What cute flowers are growing out there.

Do you think this little one has a head ache?

I guess if your cat is missing an eye the best thing to do it turn him into a Pirate

Some animals refuse to wear a costume so you have to sneak up behind them and put one on them while they are not looking.

Even the little ones aren't safe from being dressed up.

I tiny guy smells a flower somewhere. Oh wait, he's just smelling himself.

Some people go to a lot of work on these pet costumes. I'm glad they do. They make me smile and that's always a good thing.

I hope you got a laugh or two as you looked at these photos.

So how about you? Do you dress up your pets? I dress up my dogs. But, you will have to wait to see their costumes later. They don't want to blow the surprise.

Cute costumes Joanne. I love the litte puppy the best. I have two kitties and now I don't dress them up. I tried putting red bows on them for a Xmas picture and I'm not too sure they liked it. Anna kind of freaked out and Bailey got really nervous.

LOL! You found such fantastic photos of animals in costumes, Joanne! The one of the painted cat butt always makes me laugh but I always wonder how that poor kitty allowed them to do that!

Ahh -- hmmmmmm-- NYC has rats? Since when? LOL!!

I have seen a few in dark alleys late at night, but I've seen bigger groundhogs,racoons, possum and armadillos, and other such wildlife elsewhere! We all have our "critters"! LOL!

I tagged you for a Photos Tag --hope you can join in!

Hugs, Pat

Hi Joanne
Those pictures were so FUNNY. Our favorites were the nuns and the awwwwwww one! We can't dress up our bird but he loves it when we have a Christmas tree because he likes to sit on the top!
I can't wait to see your dogs dressed up, especially my friend Elton.

The nun dogs just cracked me up. We have three dogs ... Lola is too busy patrolling the back yard to be bothered with costumes. Coco, who is part Corgi and thus has attitude and thinks she rules the world, won't put up with a costume. And then there's Max, a lovey-dovey little guy who is a Chihuahua/dacshund mix ... Max loves getting dressed up. We bought him a hot dog costume and, he hated it! We couldn't even keep it on him long enough for a picture. He likes his skull and cross bones sweater though. Haha.

I love the nuns and the ghost dogs with the pumpkins. About all Jake is doing is wearing his pumpkin sweater.
