Dogs in Costumes Poll: Abhorrent or Adorable?

Darth Puppy

I’d encourage you to do something vegan to celebrate World Vegan Day, but you do everything vegan everyday anyway. However, while its not officially part of the philosophy, we all know that what vegans are really good at is arguing. So, it being right after Halloween: dogs in costumes. Cute, cruel, exploitative, charming, inappropriate, demeaning? What do you think?

If you just want to see more dogs in costumes, check out Gothamist’s coverage of Pups on Parade at Tompkins Square Park. If you have other favorite pics, post links in the comments.

The only dog I saw dressed up this year was at the Library (not actually a library) at 2am last night. A chihuahua dressed in leather to go with his leather daddy human. So not vegan. (If you can’t see the poll below, click here to vote.)

    Dogs, cats, ferrets, hamsters, and all other animals enjoy participating in our silly holiday tradition. If they can have extra food on Thanksgiving, then they can get to wear silly costumes on Halloween. Fair is fair. My Linus dressed himself up as Collette from Les Miz for Halloween.

    I once out a t-shirt on Fizz and felt guilty about it.

    I never liked dogs in costumes- until I adopted a little dog.. They are so adorable dressed up and get extra attention. So long as you let them be dogs and run around without fussy clothes on- dressing them up once a year is silly fun. It makes nearly everyone smile.
