These “fetching” dog Halloween costume ideas are proof positive that adult humans cannot compete with babies and pets for the coveted Awwwwwww! Awards. In fact, the costumed canine characters pictured below are so sigh worthy that they will launch you into cuteness overload as soon as you set your eyes on them.

For instance, just when you thought Jack Sparrow was about as attractive as any male could get, along comes pirate Bob. Pant! Woof! Howl! And wait till you see the latest entries into the world of Kart Racing. I think you’ll agree that two pro pups are twice as cute as one! Add to that a prize winning canine pony, a scuba diving terrier, and 3 greyhound Musketeers and you’ll think you’ve seen it all, but there’s more.

So, I have to ask, which one of these creative dog Halloween costume ideas could you see your Duke, Winston, Lady or Charlie parading around in this Halloween?
