Last week, the boy and I took the beagle to our local big box pet store for their annual Halloween party and parade. We walked the 5 blocks. He was wearing his father's Halloween costume from 1992 and I, well, I wore a pair of really comfortable shoes.

The boy's father with his sister on Halloween in 1992. He is wearing a costume made by his grandmother.
The boy met a chocolate lab who was going to the party. She was dressed as an out-of-work college student from Notre Dame.
There were lots of treats, for dogs, cats and kids.
Another boy was interested in the treats.
This greyhound happily wore the pirate hat for the entire party.
Greyhounds always remind me of deer.
Is there a doctor in the house?
Cute little devil!
The beage barked for 2 hours. I'm surprised they didn't kick us out.
Patriotism was a big theme this year.
This little patriotic princess was escorted by an owner dressed head-to-toe in "Hello Kitty."
She also brought a cat.
Really cute puppy.
Another cute puppy.
This one just got a new collar.
This dog was so tolerant--note the little legs.
He was miserable.
The great pumpkin.
Are those goggles?
She loved her grass skirt!
