One of the really great things about my job is the chance to preview new products before they make it to stores. Usually it’s a candle or pillow but every now and again it’s something unexpected but totally fun — like these pet costumes from Target!

While I don’t exactly plan on taking my pups trick-or-treating, I couldn’t resist dressing them up for fun. Target’s expanded their already (super!) adorable selection for 2012 so if you haven’t considered decking out your dog before – this may be the year.

Here’s my little girl, Sophie, modeling one of the new costumes that just hit the shelves. She’s a 3-year old Schnoodle (Schnauzer/Poodle) and, as you can tell, she’s pretty jazzed to be mommy’s little piggy:Sophie in her pig Halloween costume

 Not to be outdone, Madeline, my 9-year-old Bichon Frise, strutted her stuff as a cheerleader: Madeline in cheerleader costume

 

If you’ve got a little stinker you could dress him up like a, well, a little stinker:

 Or saddle up your buckeroo: Target 2012 Cowboy Halloween Pet Costume

And, what would Halloween be without treats? The nice folks at Target even included these cute pumpkin-shaped rawhides as a reward for being such great models: Sophie with Halloween rawhide

 Where do you fall on the pets in costumes divide? Will you dress up your pup this year?

    I, most definitely will be dressing up my dog. She is a 7 year old shih tzu and a Touch Therapy Dog, named Jazzy. The people we visit, one is a hospital and the other a nursing home, get such a kick out of whatever she is wearing. It is a real conversation starter!
