I haven't actually consulted my dog yet, but I'm already planning in my head what she's going to be for Halloween. Forget that she has no concept of holidays and I've never even attempted to put her in any sort of outfit — Haddie the black lab will be sporting some cute bat wings come Oct. 31.
Unsurprisingly, I'm not the only one planning ahead for my pup's Halloween.
Pet care website Rover asked hundreds of pet parents to see if they had any Halloween plans for their furry friends. Turns out, 51% plan to put their pooch in costume for the holiday.
Rover also found that 52% of pet parents said they or a member of the family will dress up with their dog, and 51% will include their dog in trick-or-treating or handing out candy on Halloween. Perhaps keep some treats handy if a dog comes to your door on Halloween.
I don't even have a costume planned for myself this year, but I'd rather everyone look at my dog instead anyway. "Batty" Haddie is ready.
