Costume Crisis

Dear Curry,

I am a human and going to a costume party this Halloween, but I am not very creative.  Any suggestions on a costume that will "wow" my friends?

Meet Herbie, October's Pet of the Month

Herbie is a sweet 12 year old Yorkshire Terrier who belongs to Carol.  We are lucky enough to have known Herbie and Carol since Herbie was just a tiny 4 month old puppy!

Herbie's favorite activity is definitely playing ball, and Carol says he is one of the sweetest dogs she's ever known!  We feel honored to have been able to care for Herbie for so many years - he is a very special little guy!
