Halloween isn't just for people, it's also for our beloved pets, with owners across the country dressing up their cats, dogs, and even ducks for the occasion! This year alone, Americans are expected to spend around $330 million on Halloween pet costumes.
So how are people dressing up their loved ones? We asked Shine readers to submit photos on Flickr of their furry family members in their Halloween best, and picked a winner in the following categories: cutest, scariest, and most original. Turns out there were loads of "pawsome" submissions so we've thrown in honorable mentions and staff favorites as well.
Thanks to all who submitted photos! Every submission can be seen here. Happy Halloween! -- By Brenda Law, Shine Community Manager
