In celebration of today being Red Head Appreciation Day, I’ve chosen another redhead, Claire as my second SSF subject. Not only does Claire have amazing hair, but she’s also the mastermind behind De Lune, and a blogger friend of mine.

This past weekend, I stopped by Tompkins Square Park for the 20th Annual Halloween Dog Parade. I’ve missed it the last few Halloweens, and was so glad I caught it before heading out of town. It’s always a blast seeing what creative costumes NYC’s dog owners come up with for their pets.
See the full photo set here.
Cure Thrift Shop in the East Village has not one, but two very special events going on this week!
And on Friday, the Spring Fashion Event:
Best of all, shopping here (year round!) benefits the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation. Check out the shop’s blog for more info and sample photos of what will be available at the sale.
Time to start thinking about Halloween costumes! More importantly, your pet’s costume. It’s pretty easy to come up with good costume ideas for humans with unlimited fashion choices. Pets, however are another story. Dogs love fashion too. So don’t go with the typical “dog as hot dog” idea. Try something new. Like Hannibal Lecter!
Hannibal was the hit of the Thompkins Square Park Dog Halloween parade a few years ago. He’s so awesome, he is featured on a slideshow of dog costume ideas on Parents Magazine’s web site today.
Or if your dog is like my dog, and refuses to wear “clothes”, get in the spirit with a nice bandana.
Show off your dog’s sense of style at one of the various nyc dog Halloween festivities going on this year:
Sunday, October 18, 2009 – Times Square Dog Day Masquerade from 1:00 to 3:00 pm
WHERE: The new Broadway plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets.
My favorite, the Friends of the First Run Thompkins Square Park Halloween Parade. Saturday October 24th at noon. Thompkins Square dog run.
There are some non-Halloween animal events going on this month too:
AKC’s Meet the Breeds, at the Javits Center: Meet 160 breeds of dogs, 40 breeds of cats. “Allows attendees to literally “Meet the Breeds” by petting the dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and learning about them directly from the experts.”
The PAWS Central Park Dog Country Fair, (an event I’ve attended nearly every year since I moved to New York) is sadly canceled this year due to the storm damage the park sustained this summer. Now a benefit is being held October 17th to raise money to help repair the park.
October in New York is prime time for city dwelling dog lovers. But If you’re more of a cat person, you can just live vicariously through United Bamboo’s creepy cat calendar.
