Halloween 2017: Dog Lovers, Feast Your Eyes On These Pics From A 'Howl'oween Parade

31 Oct 2017
The Haute Dog Howl'oween Parade took place in Long Beach, California on Sunday and saw more than 500 costumed canines show off their creative costumes with their humans. The winner of the parade received dog food for a year. Lucky dog! But it wasn't all fun and games, the organisers used the "pup"rade to raise money for animal welfare programs. Here are seven adorable dogs dressed to the (ca)nines for Halloween.

Chulo the dog made the cutest "beast." Chulo's human put on a pretty yellow gown to dress up as "Belle" from the popular Disney classic Beauty and the Beast. Take a closer look at the picture and you'll spot Lumiere and Cogsworth as well.

And finally, the winners of the parade were Lucy, a boston terrier dressed as Cat in the Hat, and her owner dressed as Thing 1 - characters from the very popular children's book The Cat in the Hat, written and illustrated by Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr Seuss.
