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?
