Dogs celebrate Halloween

Costumed canines competed for prizes on Sunday in the fifth annual Halloween for Dogs. The event was held at Washington Square Park.

Dogs big and small got into the Halloween spirit. There was Elvis, a chicken and one very dapper dog.

Politics even played a role in the costume choices.

One dog owner dressed her pet as "Joe six pack," a term the public has heard a frequently during the presidential campaign.

The contest raised money for the organization Pets are Worth Saving or PAWS.
