Halloween has gone to the dogs this year amid much jocularity. At the annual Tompkins Square Park canine costume competition, lions were the trending look, with the dog-as-cat scenario a popular crossbreed choice. Dog-as-lunch was also on the menu, one as a lobster and another as a turkey – and a very cute hot-dog stand stood in line dreaming of winning tickets to the musical Mathilda… One dog was so cool he just hung out with his shades, unperturbed, while many suffered the indignity of wigs and ruffles for the chance of top spot. But the most noticeable addition this year was the duo look, the owner / pet combo that saw best friends in complimentary costumes. His and her silver flairs were my favorite – or maybe that should be dog and damsel….lass and lassie….pet and partner…?!
