Animals Get Fancy for Dress Up Your Pet Day

Local residents get in on the fun of the fifth-annual Dress Up Your Pet day.

Animals Get Fancy for Dress Up Your Pet Day
Written By Danielle Masterson

The relationship between pet and human is a strong one. They’re our best friends, our confidantes, our companions. And they love making us happy.

Which is where the fifth-annual Dress Up Your Pet Day comes in. The day, founded in 2009 by animal behaviorist Colleen Paige, encourages pet owners to have fun, but to keep their animal’s comfort and safety in mind.

“Make sure that your pet can see and hear properly and that they aren't wearing something that might overheat them or incorporate any parts that they may chew off and swallow,” said Paige.

We went on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter yesterday and asked you to put your pet in his or her finest duds and share your photo with us on Patch. With the help of the iPhone app CO Everywhere and Storify, we compiled some of your photos here. Scroll through and take a peek at your neighbors’ pets!
