This Year's Best Halloween Costumes For Your Pet

Sure, dressing up for Halloween is fun -- but dressing up your pet is even better. There are countless ideas for making Fido festive on October 31st -- here are the most popular and the most creative ones.

Making your dog another animal is always a popular choice -- there's the bumble bee, the chicken or the cow. If you're into something a little spookier, you can always try a witch, a devil dog or even Dracula. If your dog is more like your hero why not make him one for Halloween? He can be Underdog or Spiderman -- or how about making your little girl into Wonder Woman. Perhaps your pup is a little sweeter and is more of an Angel or a dog that could rock some lederhosen?
