The Clever Dogs Who Won At Halloween

No matter how busy we are during the Halloween weekend, we always make a point of stopping by NYC's Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade, because, well, dogs in costumes, that's why.
After all, four legs are better than two, and wigs paired with wrinkly, wet noses have the tendency to make our hearts swell. Go figure. So, since we're all for sharing our Halloween treats, we've rounded up our favorite costumed canines of the day. Elvis, Superman, King Kong — the gang's all here. And, they came with tails a-waggin'.
