Dogs That Are Winning at Halloween


It isn’t enough to deck our halls with ghouls and Jack O’Lanterns, or put together the most imaginative and cute costumes for our kids; we want our pets in on the Halloween action. Because there’s nothing cuter than a chubby dog dressed as a fat wiener.

Pet stores and Pinteresters took note of the Halloween trend and now there’s an endless assortment of costume ideas to choose from, although seven out of ten dogs surveyed say they were never asked if they preferred Cinderuffa costumes over the overdone Pugs ‘n Boots costumes. As long as your pet is willing to play along—or tolerant while giving you side eye—look no further for some pupspookular inspiration. 


Katja loves to prepare delicious meals, but believes her children should be able to forage for themselves if she’s reading a good book. When she’s not reading, she’s juggling the kids’ sports, her business, volunteering, writing, and an active social life that includes eating a lot of cheese. 

There isn't a cheese drawer in her fridge, it's a cheese shelf, and she thinks cream and butter belong in most recipes. She comes from a long line of nomads who believed in the romance and adventure of travel and she’s trying to pass that on to her children. 

Katja's a freelance writer who writes about travel, culinary tourism, food, and family. She also writes Jack Straw Lane, a blog about life and trying to balance running, a bad case of travel itch, and the kids' homework.

Because she loves using photography to tell a story, you can often find Katja on Instagram
