For Halloween this year, we asked you to dress up your pets as food, and you delivered. Several entrants had very cute dogs (and I think a couple of other creatures in there somewhere) dressed up very adorably, but didn't make the cut because they didn't fit the theme.
While there were lots of great costumes, the one I loved best is Sphynxkitty's Chihuahua dressed up as a taco. Tacos were a popular theme among the small dogs in the contest; Sphynxkitty's Chihuahua had a worried expression (just as Chihuahuas always do) that was perfect, and the juxtaposition of Mexican dog and Mexican food was brilliant.
So congratulations, Sphynxkitty! We'll be getting in touch with you to make some Guilty Pleasures dinner plans soon.
