I must admit, I’m one of those adults that love to still get dressed up on Halloween. I also look forward to dressing up my dog in a costume too! It’s not an easy task trying to find a costume for a 75lb boxer, but some how every year, I manage to do it.
There’s nothing sweeter than watching the trick or treaters walk onto my porch, ring the doorbell and be greeted by myself as a witch or even a Hershey’s Kiss and then have my dog peek out between my legs and appear in costume as spider dog.
I actually think the little ghosts and goblins in my neighborhood get a bigger kick out of my dog than the candy I give! I have read in many places that one in every 10 adults dress up their pets for Halloween.
Here at Blair Candy our company is filled with many employees that have all kinds of pets, but dogs do prevail. We spend a lot of time reminding pet owners this time of year to be careful with those bags full of candy barsand Halloween candy treats. Remember they also smell and look just as good to your k9 friends. Your faithful friends aren’t as lucky as some of us who do over eat these chocolate treats. We may get a stomach ache or gain a few pounds, but these same sweet treats could be fatal for our dogs or cats.
This Halloween season, we hope everyone gets bags and bags of all their favorite nostalgic candy treats. If you don’t want your spider dog to feel left out, I suggest getting them their own bag full of dog treats!
Happy Safe Halloween To Everyone!
