Howl-o-Ween on the Promenade!

Wrigley, an English Bulldog

When no fewer than 40 dogs gather with their owners on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade clad in outfits as wide-ranging as a hula dancer, a shark, a peacock, and something that looked like a robot, it kind of makes you wish everyday was Halloween (or, in this case, the day before Halloween).

Tom, in costume, obviously

Perfect Paws owner and Howl-o-ween honcho Tom, dressed as a quinceanera princess and/or pinata, said the judges were looking for originality of costume, above all. “No one’s from the neighborhood, nobody here owns dogs,” he said of  the judges, among them Real Housewife of New Jersey Dina Manzo. BHB Contributor and Howl-o-Ween organizer Matthew Parker will provide winner information later, but for now, enjoy some snapshots from yesterday’s festivities!
