Fashion Forward: Doggie Costumes
Halloween is just a couple of days away. By now you and your children probably have costumes. But what about your pets?
It's time to find something for Fido.
Yamile Rizzo, who is buying a costume, says "It's cute they're cute already without anything so I bet with a costume she'll be even cuter.."
At Teacups in Hollywood they've got so many Halloween doggie costumes it's scary.
Fluffernutter's able to leap tall buildings in a single bound thanks to his Superman costume.
Not to be outdone Vanilla Bean is all dolled up as Batman.
But Eli the Yorkie doesn't seem happy with his bear outfit...
But that's ok cuz there's something for everybody at Teacups.
Kimberly Walker, Teacups, says "Everything ranges from about three dollars and 99 cents and sometimes we have fur coats in here that cost about 400 dollars.."
"How do the dogs feel about wearing fur...well no one's ever asked them before...yeah exactly..."
And how would your dog feel about wearing a diamond dog collar.
"We have a one point ten carat diamond dog collar that goes for 1299.. as in one thousand two hundred ninety nine...yes...I thought the four hundred dollar fur coat was crazy.."
And my dogs thought I was crazy when I dragged them with me for this story.
After browsing the shelves for just the right outfit -- Bruno, the Chitzu, settled on this devil costume.
While Max, the mutt, went with a more glamorous look that can work for Halloween or a black tie dinner.
"Of all the dogs here, aren't mine the cutest?...They really are. I have to say...I was like you better say that...or else..."
Trick or treat!
Any excuse to put my pets on t-v...
