Definitive Proof Dogs Are Better At Halloween Than People

Bow (wow) down.

Cat haters, dog lovers, cat lovers, and dog haters, it’s that cordial time of the year to put conditioned biases aside and appreciate the art that is dressing up pets for Halloween.

So for just a few minutes, forget the weight of all those perennial think pieces raising questions of morality over the sale and appropriation of certain eyebrow-raising costumes.

This is not a forum for that. This is a place to appreciate bitsy costumes for dogs ambivalent to the human joy they bring this time of the year.
