This pumpkin costume is a classic! Maybe Bob Barker could wear this to the Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade held in New York City. Hundreds of dogs take part in the yearly celebration.

Bob's favorite costume is a turtle. He likes turtles because they are the only animals that he can outrun.

Bob really is a one-of-a-kind dog.

Fun Fact: Zebras are one of a kind too. No two zebras have the exact same stripes.

Dressing up in so many costumes makes Bob sleepy. His favorite thing to do is snuggling before he goes to sleep. And he snores big-time. Shiver me timbers!
