Humiliate Your Dog For Halloween: Ten Terrible Food Costumes For Fido

Your dog gives you unconditional love every day of his life. Seriously! Has a human ever greeted you with such fierce devotion?  Sure, he peed on the carpet and he licks his butt, but if you want to punish your dog, take away his favorite chew toy. But in the name of all that's good in the world, don't dress him like a freaking piece of sushi.

Sadly, there are still some people who think it's hill-a--reee---ous to dress their pug up for Halloween. Just a reminder - your dog is an adult animal, capable of reproducing (well, before you cut his balls off, that is), foraging for food and chasing the neighborhood cat. Not wearing a wig. Here are the ten largest crimes against canines we could find.  Shame on you!
