Over the weekend, I took off to find my nearest Petco here in SF to check out their Halloween costume photo extravaganza taking place at stores nationwide. Furry friends of all kinds were invited to come dressed in costume, and have a fun piccy taken to remember the fun forever. The photographs were totally inexpensive ($5 plus tax), and came with a cute pumpkin frame to boot. I didn't want to chance taking North along, since he's usually the rowdy one in the bunch and, let's face it, a rowdy pooch while other dogs are trying to sit and stay for the camera doesn't really make sense! Check out some of the costumed pets I found at my local shop in this slideshow.
Huge sunglasses . . . check. Messy hair . . . check. London . . . check. Hmm, but what's this I see?! A cute, stripey top (on the dog). After some searching, and much zoom-in examining, I was shocked to find the Houndstooth Striped Sweater by DC at Petco on sale 'til 1/31 for $7.50 (originally $14.99). I'm wondering if Brit picked it up waaaay back when she also bought a goldfish at that shop . . . and a bit curious about the serious downgrading from the Kwigy-bo carrier and Little Lily dress we've spotted in the past. I couldn't bear to let lil' London wear something so basic, so see the more paps-worthy version (at twice the price) I've picked when you read more
