“Dear PoP,

I heard there’s a pet costume contest/parade in Petworth this coming Wednesday.  Do you have any details? My dog and I are ready to show off our costumes!”

Following is the info from the organizer.  I’ll be there as a guest judge so if in anyone wants to bribe me, I’ve been dreaming of some pumpkin pie…

“Those of us on the Petworth Dogs listserv would like to invite you to the:

2009 Petworth Dog Walk Halloween
a costume celebration of dogs and owners
Wednesday, October 28, 7pm
@ Domku Restaurant
821 Upshur St NW

Contestants – meet at 6pm at the Clark School (7th and Alison Streets NW) to wear out your favorite pooch, before suiting them up in a great costume. From there, we’ll walk our bedazzled best friends down to Upshur Street where they’ll be judged on:

* Best Doggie Costume – the classic, dress ‘em up!
* Best Twins – Celebrating how dogs and owners can look alike
* Best Trick – Costume or not, show your dog’s skills

— We have prizes for every category!  —

The Domku patio will be the reviewing stand and the post-parade party spot.  Feel free to print out copies of our flier and take them with you when you’re out walking. When you see a dog + owner, hand them a flier and encourage them to come out as a participant or observer:
