We are so lucky that Miss Ruth can squeeze us into her schedule, as she is quite popular and a very busy dog!

Beauty, brains and a sweet soul: this Naperville girl is the whole package!

Best of OUG! Top Dog Halloween Costumes: Chicago & Oak Park Edition! [PHOTOS]

Halloween is a pretty great holiday to share with your pet. Not only does every pup’s favorite word occur within its most popular exclamation, “trick or treat,” it is a day (…or week…or entire month) where a furry body running around in a little hot dog suit or carrying out an entire neighborhood watch shift, a.k.a. walk, wearing a skeleton outfit is not considered absurd.

Meet a few of our Chicago and Oak Park pet pals who are donning their best dog Halloween costumes in the spirit of the spooky!

This is Otis, Pack Leader Nicolette’s pup! Here Otis is dressed as his favorite Futurama character, Nibbler. Otis and Nibbler share not only a striking resemblance, but also personality traits as well. They both like to eat a lot of food (and will chow down on just about anything), they like to sleep, and their favorite thing to do (other than eating, of course) is to cuddle with Mom. While Otis was not as accustomed to wearing a diaper like Nibbler is, he was a good sport and showed only a mild disdain for the costume.

Here, Otis proves that being a superhero is exhausting. After a morning filled with getting chin scratches for looking too cute in his bat wings, he takes a snooze under the coffee table at OUG! Central. Surely, he is dreaming about flying around outside to scare all of the squirrels out of his trees! Bat doggie to the rescue!

Vern is General Manager Sara’s two year old Terrier mix that LOVES food and has a history of thievery here at the OUG! office. So when Executive Canine Strategist Laura saw this Hot Dog costume she just knew she had to bring it in for Vern! The first time Sara put it on him at home he strutted around like the little Hot Dog he is. She took it off and put it on the end table. Next thing she knew, Vern was chewing on it! VERN! It’s not a REAL Hot Dog you silly pooch!!!!

Berkeley, age 4, purebred Berzerker, decided to go as a ski racer for Halloween this year. Here she is trying on her costume, just moments before walking into a wall. Berkeley was fine, but the wall is damaged.

Layla, age 9, breed “furry”, has chosen, once again, to go as a pillow for Halloween. Layla decided on this costume many years ago and chooses to go as a pillow every Halloween, and every other day of the year, too.
