It didn’t need to be Halloween to find animals dressed in bathing suites, baby outfits, etc. in my house. I grew up in a household with tolerant and/or lazy pets who didn’t mind being dressed up. This was many years ago…I promise.
The story appears in today’s edition (October 31, 2007) of USA TODAY in the Money section. Here is the Photo Gallery with some of my photographs from the costume contest last weekend at Bloomingdale’s in Tyson’s Corner, VA to benefit The Humane Society.
