Forget the candy, parties and costumes – all we needed to see this Halloween is Bogart the maltipoo in this uh-mazing costume.

We can't get enough of this photo Allyson Busby (@MadeWithLove88) submitted to our weekly Twitter contest of her rescue pup dressed as the decorative planter.

"I don't think Bogart is too thrilled about being a Chia Pet," Busby wrote, and we can't say we disagree. Poor Bogart looks ready to leaves ... er ... leave.

The Best Pics from N.Y.C.'s Halloween Dog Parade

The Daily Treat: The Best Pics from the Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade

Who let the dogs out – dressed like that?

That would be some of New York City's most creative dog owners with a vision and a simple mission: to have the best doggy Halloween costume. EVER.

The 23rd annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade included some of the funniest doggy get-ups we've seen to date, including a mysterious Barksy – a nod to British graffiti artist Banksy – and a furry pumpkin squeezed into a Starbucks cup (reminding us to imbibe the Pumpkin Spice Latte before they're taken off the menu for the season).

Here's a list of our favorite pooches, though we think all of the participants proved to be Best in Show.

The Daily Treat: Pour Yourself a Pugkin Spice Latte

Originally posted 10/17/2013 01:35PM

By now, midway through October, you've probably tasted your first pumpkin spice latte of the season (although that's more than we can say for this unhappy lion). The drink is as synonymous with the start of fall as sweaters, leaves and other things we learned from rom-coms.

But now, there's a way for you to enjoy the season with your pet.

Behold: the pugskin spice latte. Twitter user @singalittleflat crafted the ultimate (and caffeinated!) Halloween costume for her furry buddy, who dons the signature Starbucks lid as a cap and a cardboard recreation of its cup holder around its waist.

A Starbucks creation that's D.I.Y. and calorie-free? We'll take a venti.

The Daily Treat: Kitten Dressed as Mushroom Is What You've Been Missing

The Daily Treat: Kitten Dressed as Mushroom Is What You've Been Missing

Who says couture can't be fashionable and practical?

A rescue kitten named Wasabi-chan is proving that statement true after photos of the itty-bitty furball went viral showing her dressed as a mushroom and in other adorable crocheted ensembles.

But the stylish kitty's purr-recious sartorial selection stemmed from necessity more than vanity. Wasabi-chan was attacked by a crow on June 2, reports Mashable, and suffered a fractured upper jaw and split tongue. She required a catheter to feed, but kept wiggling the tube out of her mouth. Thus, her owner, who goes by the Twitter handle @jessiepon, crafted a series of costumes to keep Wasabi-chan still during feedings.

Blake Lively is getting a little out of control.

It's not enough that the actress has a toy poodle named Penny who has stayed tiny forever.

Nope, not good enough. Lively has to bring her tiny, tiny shadow (along with new husband Ryan Reynolds's dog, Baxter) to work on the Gossip Girl set in Queens, New York. She did this on Thursday, with Penny wearing dog pajamas.

Not just any old puppy pajamas, either – these PJs were covered in fluffy white sheep.

The color pink, a slice of cake, lacy lingerie, poodles.

"Certain things just make me smile," Isaac Mizrahi told PEOPLE at the launch of Fabulous, his first fragrance for women. The designer brought that sense of joy to the perfume's ad campaign. "I see a poodle, it just makes me smile."

For the campaign, two black standard poodles joined a model (in pink!) outside New York City's Guggenheim Museum. In one scene, a show-trimmed pooch appears to be asking for a spritz of the scent, which features mandarin, nectarine, jasmine and cedar.

From a wirehaired dachshund mix named Hope to a Great Dane named Bellini, these dogs from the Humane Society of New York looked picture-perfect for the editorial, which was shot in New York City's Central Park.

Cat models and United Bamboo are back – and they're seeing beyond calendars this time.

After a year-long hiatus from the kitty business, fashion house United Bamboo is expanding, offering more feline-glorifying goods in addition to the classic calendar that first earned a following in 2009 with 12 snapshots of costume-clad cats (know as nameneko, a trend from United Bamboo designer Miho Aoki's native Japan).

Also up for grabs this year: magnets, posters, framed prints and an LED lightbox, all of which picture images of photogenic felines donning sized-down (but just as stylish) runway attire, designed by United Bamboo, Le Bac and Bamboo By. (All of the swag falls under a new spin-off brand, Catclub by United Bamboo.)
