The Canine Promenade culminated in a walk around the Esplanade where the dogs showed off their costumes to the judges. Led in this photo by the third-place winner, dressed as a Hoover vacuum, the dogs strutted with confidence in their Halloween attire. (Photos by Margaret Burdge)

Dog Halloween Photo Contest 2016 Edition - Fidose of Reality
The winners of the Fifth Annual Fidose of Reality Dog Halloween Photo Contest are in. This was one of our most popular contests to date, and you all outdid yourselves. From adorable chefs to monsters galore and from Ewoks to Minions, you all are super creative. One thing is for sure: Your dogs tolerated the costumes, so now go take them for a romp outside, treat them to a fun play session, or maybe a long tummy rub. They are great sports.
Are These Photos of Dogs in Halloween Costumes Cute or Sad?
DogWatch asked for the best Halloween photos of your dog in costume, and you delivered! We received over 400 entries, featuring some of the spookiest, funniest, cutest and most creative dog costumes we’ve every seen! The DogWatch team had a blast going through all of the amazing entries and voting for our favorites. With so many fantastic candidates to choose from, it was VERY difficult to pick the winners. The votes are in, and we are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2016 DogWatch Halloween Photo Contest! Witches, zombies, ghosts, ghouls and…hot dogs? Whatever spooky or silly costume your pet will be sporting this Halloween, we want to see it! Starting today, share a photo of your dog in his or her costume or using the hashtag . (Cats and other pet photos are welcome too.) Please also include your pet’s name and breed. The DogWatch team will select their favorites, and share the photos on our Facebook page and here on Dog Tails.Every year, New York’s dog owners get together at Tompkins Square Park for a different kind of Halloween parade—instead of humans wearing costumes, this one is all about the best-dressed pooch. But if you think it’s all about the “aww,” hold on a second, because these photos may be more sad than cute. We’d like to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this year’s DogWatch Halloween Photo Contest! And if you don’t already, follow us on and to see the rest of the Halloween photo contest entries!
