Pet fun on Halloween

Remember the dangers and hide the chocolate

by Dr. Kristel Weaver

These days our pets are considered our children. On Halloween, nothing is cuter than a dachshund in a hotdog costume or a bulldog pirate. I love dressing up my dogs on Halloween and get quite a laugh when they parade around as a superhero, princess or clown.

It is fun to include our dogs and cats in this playful holiday.
