We interrupt this storm for… the 10th-annual Howl-o-Ween Doggie costume charity contest! Despite brisk breezes and the imminent threat of Hurricane Sandy Sunday night, the pet parade took place as planned on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade from 1 to 3 p.m., with Vinegar Hill Veterinary Group sponsoring the after-party.
All proceeds for $25 entry were donated to three animal-related charities: Friends of Hillside Dog Park, Sean Casey Animal Rescue and Blue Rider Stables. Each participating dog was also awarded a goodie bag. See pics below. (Photos: Chuck Taylor)
