Good Housekeeping is sponsoring the Third Annual Halloween Pet Costume Contest. All you have to do is upload a photo of your pet in costume by October 31, 2009. Entries will be judged on:

  • Creativity 25%
  • Attention to Detail 25%
  • Best Representation of Character 25%
  • Cuteness 25%

The grand prize is airfare for four and a five-night stay at Seattle’s Hotel Vintage Park plus $2,000 in cash. The hotel was recently named to Travel & Leisure’s Best 500 Hotels in the world. And yes, the hotel stay includes taking your pet there as well! Full details of prizes and submission are available at

I once purchased a Santa hat and jacket for Lexie Lee. But she did not stay in the costume long enough for a photo shoot! All she liked to do later was drag the hat around by the end of the white pompom. So although I love contests, this will be one that I will just vote for my favorite.

Bountiful Blessings!
