Dogs in Costumes — Howl-O-Ween in Park City, UT!

dogs in costumesDogs in costumes are pretty cute, right?  Park City, Utah has cuteness in spades at their annual doggie dress up event called “Howl-O-Ween!”

And let me tell you — you don’t know people that LOVE their dogs until you have been to a mountain town like Park City or Vail.  These people are serious about their four legged friends.  A halloween event for dogs?

And, yeah, the kids are invited too.

So funny to me.

I love that no matter where you go you get a sense of what people value almost immediately.  Don’t get me wrong, dogs are my favorite animal.  Before I had kids I signed our Christmas cards with our dog Paiges’ paw print and hand made her clothes out of fabric remnants.  Uh huh, don’t judge.

Paige got knocked down in the family ranking a bit as soon as E arrived.  It’s just how it goes.

We love her and she is an important part of our family but we have yet to throw an event in her honor.  So thank you Park City!

Did you know that you can travel in airplanes and stay in non-pet friendly hotels with your dog if you get a note from your doctor to do so.

Paige is actually an “emotional support animal ” and has the special vest and everything so when David went to take her out for a bathroom break on halloween everyone thought she was in costume!

He didn’t correct them.  Probably because he was by himself and when you tell someone you have an emotional support dog they look at you all sideways and try to figure out what is wrong with you.  When it’s the entire family, no one knows who’s got the issue!
