Halloween Happenings 2011

It’s almost Halloween!  That means lots of fun pet “pawties” and adorable dogs in costume – like this cutie, one of my favorites from 2010.

In the Los Angeles area, there are plenty of pet happenings to choose from, like the Urban Pet Halloween Carnival on Sunday, October 23 at 6 pm, featuring Complimentary Valet, Doggie Fun Maze, Paw Printing, Furtographs, Bobbing for Tennis Balls, Moon Shine Facials, Trick or Trick bags, Costume Contest, Drinks, and even a Doggie Disco.  For more details or to RSVP, check out the invite here.

The Healthy Spot is holding its annual Howl-o-ween Bash on Thursday October 27 at 7 pm in Hollywood, and Friday, October 28 at 7 pm at their Santa Monica Store.  I attended last year’s event and loved it!  There will be a pet parade, plenty of refreshments for two-legged and four-legged attendees, plus vendors and dog goodies on hand.

Sunday, October 30 is also the 11th Annual Haute Dog Howl’oween Parade in Long Beach, California.  The parade starts at 2:30.  Enter your dog into the parade, or just stop by to watch!  Organizers expect 500 dogs in costume.

If you don’t have time for a party or parade, both Centinela Feed and the new “Unleashed by Petco” stores will be offering special treats to visiting dogs in costume.

And finally, I want to invite The Daily Toki readers (that means you!) to send in photos of your pets in costume.  For Halloween, we’d like to feature your favorite costumed pets on the blog!  You can email your photos to The Daily Toki at furfilled(at)gmail.com.

  1. i love this costume! it’s pretty original considering the costumes i’ve been going through at all the stores. yuki and rocket are going to be a knight and princess-rocket doesn’t mind dressing up, but yuki thinks it’s a torture device! i might just email a picture to you if they cooperate in taking a picture with their costumes on. 🙂

      I was very impressed too! The best part was that the dog seemed very comfortable hanging out in it. And that’s no small feat, judging from my experiences trying to dress Toki in costume…
