Best of OUG! Top Dog Halloween Costumes: Denver Dogs & Boulder Buddies Edition!

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 Denver and Boulder pet pals who are donning their best dog (and cat!) Halloween costumes in the spirit of the spooky!


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.


Sweet Pea (left) & Duncan (right), breeds “chug” and big bad wolf, sporting a tremendously fitting dual costume. And, they didn’t even realize it was Halloween.


What are your four-legged kiddos dressing up as for Halloween?

Top 3 Scenic Dog Walking Routes in Boulder

Finding great, scenic dog walking routes in Boulder is something we’re always sniffing around for. While Sherlock’s nose is to the ground (searching for squirrel clues, of course!), it’s a treat for parents to take in such sights as unique architecture, local history, or beautiful natural landscapes. Our paws have done some walkin’, so we’ve compiled a list of our favorite routes across town for you and your pups to check out!

Dog walking routes in Boulder at Dry Creek

  1. Dry Creek Open Space:
    • Parking: In lot at Baseline Rd., east of Baseline Reservoir and west of 75th Street
      Boulder, CO
    • Walk: The several mile loop along the path at Dry Creek Open Space ends up back at the parking lot
    • Features: Tons of off leash dogs! Great place for pup to run off leash, play in creek, etc.
    • Preparation: Make sure your pup has a green City of Boulder tag so he or she can be off leash
    • Heads up: There are lots of prairie dogs, so if your pup likes to chase them, it might be best to stay on leash
    • Sights: Great views of front range and Flat Irons

    Dog walking route in Boulder at Mt. Sanitas

  2. Mt. Sanitas Open Space:
    • Parking: At 4th St and Mapleton Ave, Boulder, CO 80302

    • Sights: Beautiful mountain views, and the occasional mountain lion sighting!
  3. Boulder Creek Path:
    • Walk: This is a long relaxing stroll that starts at Eben Fine Park in West Boulder. The path goes on for a very long time so start walking and end whenever you’ve had enough!
    • Features: In the summer, wear swim wear so you can take a dip in the creek if you get hot! Another fun thing to do after your dog walk is stop off at the Pearl Street Mall for a snack.
    • Heads up: Watch out for bikers and skate boarders
