Greensboro is head over heels in love with contests for pets in Halloween costumes. This weekend was full of such contests, one of which was held by Greensboro's own News & Record. Featured in our photo today is Taco the Chihuahua who is sporting an outfit hand made by the man he is pulling around on a leash- Tony. Taco has his master Tony wrapped around his little paw. Actually, watching the duo in action, it is obvious that the affection is mutual. Taco loves hanging out with his owner almost as much as he likes the attention he gets for his costumes.
Taco took Best of Show yesterday at the doggie costume contest sponsored by Golden Antiques on Highway 220 in Summerfield. His owner made the costume out of leather purses purchased from a Goodwill Store. For a great detail, he added the saddle blanket, and, in the saddle pouches you will find miniature candy bananas. Many dogs had great costumes; however, the level of detail in Taco's costume, combined with the confidence with which Taco wore his costume, made him the undisputed winner. Halloween in Greensboro has so much to offer for humans and pets alike.
