Dog Halloween Photo Contest Winners 2016

Dog Halloween photo contest winners

The winners of the Sixth Annual Fidose of Reality Dog Halloween Photo Contest have been selected.  Bow wow, did you all ever up the bark and the bar for originality, creativity, and fun!  Your dogs tolerated the costumes, so now go take them for a romp outside, treat them to a fun play session, or maybe a long tummy rub. They are great sports for allowing everyone to do this.

Please be sure to come back for our Big Holiday Photo Contest which kicks off on November 16!

Thanks to all who entered, and you all deserve a huge round of a-paws. As you get ready to see the winners, be sure to check out Do’s and Dont’s for Dogs this Halloween. You can view all entries in the Dog Halloween Photo Contest here.
