Dressing Up Just for Barks: Halloween Costume Contest for Canines


“Tricks & Treats: A Howl of a Good Time,” features costume contests for pets, sponsored by Barker & Meowsky: A Paw Firm. The event begins at 11 am, Sunday, October 25th at the Bridgeview Bank parking lot (Halsted St. and Armitage Ave.). It says in the press release, ‘Imagine your pet being introduced by celebrity judge Steve Dale.” hmmmm….that could be scarier than the costumes. For kids, there will also be face painting and spooooky stories. Also judging, Jill Cahr (Ian’s mom) and Billy Rafferty (dog groomer pro), co-authors of “Happy Dog: Caring for Your Dog’s Mind, Body and Spirit.”
