For those that like to dress up their dog (and for those dogs who truly like to wear clothes), Halloween is a fun time of year.
And it seems that nobody likes to dress up their dog more than wiener dog owners.
Most cities will have at least one dog-themed Halloween event where there may be competitions, games, costume judging contests.
Here are a few of my favorites around Seattle.
