I’m never going to go all out for a Halloween costume for Woof Woof. He’s going to have one off the rack, or I’ll make one that’s relatively simple. This year, he went as Mets pitcher Jacob DeGrom. The reason I chose him is Woof Woof already had his shirt from when he covered Bark in the Park with a press pass in May. I bought him a kids t-shirt for the event that fits him perfectly.
But a jersey by itself isn’t enough. So I went to Party City to look for a wavy-haired wig small enough to fit a mini schnauzer. It was a much tougher task than trying to find a toddler-sized t-shirt. All the wigs were sized for adults. Thus, the shortest wig we could find was one that was supposed to look like a comb over. To keep the wig on, I tied his dog Yamuka on top that he happened to have from his Bark Mitzvah.
Woof Woof shook off the wig when he got to the pup parade. His costume then changed to just Mets fan. Before the costume contest started, he looked for other dogs to play with. After all, the best of a pup parade for Woof Woof is bringing his friends together for a giant playdate.
