Dogs want a fang-tastic Halloween too, so 'creep it real' and include your furry companion. They may not be able to each chocolate, but they still want in on the action. 

At the Trick Fur Treat Howl-ween at Doods and Dames Dog Bakery and Boutique event, you can dress your pups in their howl-iday best and get a free mini pupcake just for stopping in. 

If you don't have a canine companion to celebrate Halloween with but want one, you could find your new best friend at one of these Halloween adoption events.
