Howl-o-Ween Parade a Howling Success

The ninth annual Howl-o-Ween dog parade, sponsored by Perfect Paws, with after-party presented by Vinegar Hill Veterinary Group, took place today on the Promenade under sunny skies, though with a fall nip in the air.Over fifty contestants showed up in a great variety of costumes, including Wellington (photo), held by owner Stacey Mankoff, and dressed as Chef Cora of Iron Chef. More photos and a video after the jump.

Moxie came as a groupie…

…and Lily as a punk rock star. These two should have gotten together.

BHB contributor Matthew (“Off with his head!” said the camera) Parker restrains “Napoleon” from attacking “Marie Antoinette.”

The 99% were represented…

…as were the 1%, both human…

…and canine.

A distinguished panel of judges considered each entrant carefully. And the first prize winner was…

…Matthew Parker’s “French Revolution” entry. Allons enfants…

    That Pan Am stewardess is cute. Coffee, tea or a bone?

    We had a great time (the couple with Ruby the “angel” golden retriever at the end of the video). All the dogs were winners because they were all so cute. The after party was pretty cool as well, good food and drink.
