Dozens Of Fur Friends Line Up To Show Off Halloween Costumes

From large to incredibly small, 27 pets faced off to be crowned the best dressed at Tyler's Petsmart location Tuesday night.

To win the competition takes work, and a lot of imagination.

Jennifer Mobbs dressed up pug Fiona: "Last year, she was a princess and this year she's the 'Bride of Puggenstein.'"

Taylor Denson brought Lucky: "He's six years old and this is his first Halloween with us. How does he like it? Good."  Lucky is a bumblebee.

Almost lost in the crowd of big dogs and little dogs, was Coco.  She fits in the palm of your hand. 

"She's a fairy princess and we made her costume because we couldn't find one small enough to fit her," says owner Natalie Keating.

As pictures were snapped, it was Coco's her big moment, but she didn't seem to care.  Including the costume, new owner Natalie says her six-week-old Yorkshire terrier wears it well.

"So far, she likes a few things.   But other than that, she pulls [the costume] off, she's still a baby, so we're training her." 

She might be tiny, but the reward was maybe a bit overwhelming.

"The stuffed toy is bigger than she is," Natalie exclaimed when receiving the first prize dog toy, a stuffed dog several times the Yorkie's size. 

Coco's owner says the mother refused to take care of Coco, who was the "runt" of the litter.  She has bonded almost completely to Natalie.
