Dogs in Costume? Yes, Please! [VIDEO]

Dog in costume

Kansas City was having a doggone good time yesterday when they tried to break the Guinness record for dogs on parade. It’s traditional for the city to have a Cinco de Mayo Chihuahua parade, though this year the event was open to all dogs. Many of them were dressed in costume, but unfortunately they fell short of the numbers needed to break the record.

Approximately 500 dogs showed up to showcase their costumes as ballerinas, cowboys, firecrackers, and more. They needed 700, but officials are still pleased with the turnout.

As part of the record breaking attempt, veterinarians were on-hand to ensure the dogs walking the parade were indeed dogs, and to make sure there were no non-living dogs going through the route. One person showed up with a potbellied pig, which seems to be an issue for other cities who have tried to break this record, but no dead animals showed up for the event on Saturday.

This sounds like a lot of fun and I’d like to take part in something like this myself. I don’t have a dog, so I’d need to borrow one from a friend, but how much fun would that be to see hundreds of dogs dressed up in silly costumes? What if we brainstormed and came up with something else to put on parade, like people dressed as hamburgers? Or, what about people dressed as dogs instead of having dogs on parade? It could be fun.

No, seriously… that would be fun.
