Doggies On Parade for Brooklyn Heights Howl-O-Ween 2009

Dozens of dogs dressed in their finest Halloween costumes Sunday afternoon and promenaded down the Brooklyn Heights Promenade for the 7th Annual Brooklyn Howl-o-Ween Doggie Costume Parade and contest.

Above is the Michael Jackson dog, a crowd favorite. (UPDATE: Some of the winners posted below.)

Tom Vasquez, of Perfect Paws, was a howl.

Here's Mummy dog. The poor thing.

Above is Rock Lobster dog, with some kind of dude dog in the background.

This is submarine sandwich dog, though it's kind of hard to see all the lettuce and tomato from this angle.

Above is a banana-thingy dog.

This high-spirited event is a charity fundraiser, organized by Perfect Paws and Friends of Hillside Dog Park.

More Halloween events can be found at the Brooklyn Eagle web site.

Best overall costume:
Jamie Tropia and her Poodle, Baby as The Phantom of the Opera
