"A park went to the dogs in a grand way on Saturday, hosting what was billed as the nation`s largest Halloween dog parade, with hundreds of canines submitted to their owners` fanciful desires to see them in costumes as superheroes, dinosaurs and the pope.
Thousands of spectators lapped it up, mingling with nearly 400 four-legged contestants around a stage in Manhattan`s Tompkins Square Park. Every imaginable breed was paraded one by one to preen before judges in the hopes of a Best in Show award at the 25th annual outing, which raises money for the park`s dog run."

It`s anathema to dress up your pooch, putting a sweater or a hat on man`s best friend robs him of his dignity and exposes him to ridicule from his canine buddies.
If you`re a 90-year-old lady with nothing better to do, perhaps you can be forgiven for putting clothes on your dog, but anybody else who humiliates his loyal pet in this fashion, should be tarred and feathered.
Halloween is the only time of the year when it`s OK to dress up your pooch; everybody gets freaky on this holiday, even canines.
But when Halloween is over make it up to your dog, by buying him the biggest bone in the pet store.
