New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: District Dog Halloween Parade & Costume Contest

As promised I have assembled a slide show of yesterday’s festivities for your viewing pleasure. Before I proceed, however, I would like to tender a few thoughts/props.

AC Unit

1. I confided to my fellow judge, Assemblyman Joe Lentol, that I felt the air conditioning unit entry should be given an honorable mention because “I cannot imagine why someone would dress up their dog as one.” To wit he replied:

Maybe it is in heat?

I can honestly say I never thought of that.

Three Legged Squirrel

Peg Leg

2. Two three legged dogs were contestants in this year’s contest. One placed and one received an honorable mention.

Hollywood

3. I really, REALLY liked this entry but was overruled. So it goes.

Janitor and mop

4. I have no idea why this duo, a janitor and his “mop”, didn’t enter. I loved it!

Garden Gnomes

5. This gaggle of garden gnomes gets points for concept but I found the execution lacking. Maybe they’ll take another stab at this next year? I can only hope so.

Lobster in a pot

6. Arguably the most difficult decision was Second Place for best “Group”. It basically came down to this entry, which is absolutely adorable, and the G, L and Z trains. The judges’ collective disgust with the MTA prevailed.

And on that note and without further ado here is the slide show. Enjoy!

As always you can view these images in larger format by clicking here.

I suspect fellow judge Joe Lentol would agree with me that selecting this year’s winners of the District Dog Halloween Costume Contest was very tough indeed! There were so many great entries. I would like to thank everyone who came out today. I hope you had as much as I had! Now, if you do not mind dear readers I am off to enjoy my evening for a bit. You can look forward to a slide show tomorrow!
