Local pups can dress up in funny costumes, then get their photo taken at a pet shop in Dupont this weekend.
The Cheeky Puppy (1709 Connecticut Ave. NW) is scheduled to host an open house and “Politics Is Scary” photo shoot with a professional pet photographer Saturday. Proceeds help benefit pet adoption organization Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
Additionally, between noon and 3 p.m., all dogs in costume will be entered into the store’s social media costume contest. Whichever dog gets the most combined likes from the shop’s Facebook and Instagram pages as of 5 p.m. Sunday will be our next Borderstan Pet of the Week.
More info from The Cheeky Puppy:
Join us for a Halloween Open House on Saturday, October 29th Sponsored by Borderstan! From 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., all dogs in costume will be entered into our social media costume contest. The photo with the most combined likes from our Facebook and Instagram feeds as of 5PM on Sunday, October 30th, will be Borderstan’s Pet of the Week on Monday, October 31st.
Our Halloween Open House will also include photo sessions with Outside the Lines Pet Photography from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Have your pup photographed in costume – or in an appropriately political stance – complete with an American flag! Pre-registration is required and proceeds from the $40 session fee benefit Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
We’ll be joined by lots of adoptable pups in need of good homes who are being fostered by Lucky Dog. We can’t wait to celebrate Halloween with you!
