Hey there, Melinda here from the Pampered Pets Mystery series.
It’s only the second week of October and pet costumes are already flying off the shelves! According to my assistant, Betty Fox, there will be over twenty-three million pets dressed-up this year. How she knows that, I have no idea. But judging from the number of customers that have waltzed through my pet boutique door the last couple of weeks, that estimate might be a little low.
Halloween is so popular (second only to Christmas) even a national morning show dedicated a segment on pets who wear costumes. Check out the adorable photos fellow pet lovers shared on the TV show’s Facebook page.
According to the National Retail Federation, the top-selling pet costume is the devil. I have to admit, I sell more hot dog and pumpkin costumes.
Do you dress up your pet for Halloween? What’s your favorite costume?
