The best costume idea I heard this year came from a 7-year-old, who conceived the Basset Witch, which is, of course, a witch crossed with a Basset hound.
Unfortunately, this idea remained only an idea, so there are no photos to show. Instead, here's a picture of my dog dressed as a pickle. (Costume by my husband-if-R-74-is-approved Jake.)
