Joisey Adventures: The 21st Annual Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade

This past weekend was all about smiles and laughter. My work week was done -- time for some relaxation and fun! Who could not use a big dose of smiles and laughter? This was my mission and I accepted it with furvor!

On Saturday October 22nd with a crisp fall air, I trekked down to Tompkins Square Park for the 21st Annual Halloween Dog Parade. 500 dogs and 3,000 spectators gathered at the run for the competition. I did not want to stand along the gate as I wanted to be up close and personal with the dogs so I made a $5 dollar donation to First Run Friends and snapped away, talked to a lot of people, petted a lot of dogs, and made my own dogs jealous when I got home. You see I have two big dogs -- Hudson and Sweetums -- who are both rescues. Since they are not service animals I would have to put them into a cage on the train. I love my dogs but I am not that strong yet to cart over two hundred pounds of dog! This was also a great opportunity to gain some ideas for costumes for my dogs....and myself as well! Please enjoy the photos below!
