Animal Halloween Costumes
Contest Directions: A yearly Halloween pet costume contest was held this week in Florida. The contest was organized by Pet Nation store and selected the winners in nine different categories from 127 dressed pets.
This reminds me the Halloween pet costume contest we had last year in my neighborhood. My dog participated - she had no clothes on, but in her mouth carried a tape of her "going at it" with another dog - she came as Paris Hilton. The Best Halloween Pet Costume award, however went to the neighbors' dog - she puked out her food all evening and looked skinny as hell - she came as anorexic Nicole Richie. And what about my parrot, you ask? My parrot came as a firecracker, but didn't win any awards because nobody likes a farting parrot.
In this contest you are asked to dress up animals for Halloween. Any animals are allowed, not just pets. Halloween makeup on animals is a plus.

This contest is fueled by the following news: A pet store in Navarre, Florida, hosted its annual Pet Halloween Costume contest which drew more than 120 pets and their owners. Holly Elassaad, the store owner, described the contest as a great community event. The event has seen a 100% increase in participation from last years Halloween. This year, 127 companion animals took part in the event. There were nine separate categories in which the animals could compete before this year's Halloween. Winners of the event included a couple of dogs dresses like the Lone Ranger and Tonto, a hermit crab costumed like a pumpkin in a pumpkin patch, a chinchilla dressed like a cowboy and a ferret gowned up like a princess. The winners in each category -- the top three placers -- received a certificate and an assortment of pet supplies and products. From this year, American schoolboys are prohibited to celebrate Halloween. It is considered, that such a frivolous attitude to the Festival of Dead can offend modern-day witches. In fact, they would never abuse for trifles, for example, hurling eggs. Besides, Halloween is incompatible with school rules and regulations, which oblige pupils not to cause inconveniences to their elders and the preparation for the holidays - a waste of time. And moreover, each and every American family cannot afford to purchase costumes. Tips for the Halloween costumes: Main: Each guest, without exception, should be in a masquerade costume. Receive the guests at the entrance, dressed-up in mummy costume. The mummy costume is inexpensive. Simply wrap gauze and bandage, made from old bed sheets, from toe to head. Do not forget to leave openings for the mouth, nose and eyes! Domesticated animals are such animals are kept for one advantage or the other. Some provide materials, necessary for eating: milk, oil, cheese and in general dairy products, then after death - meat, fat, etc. Others provide material for clothes, shoes and in general for rural or industry. Some are reared for transportation of goods and performing different agricultural works. Sometimes, animals are kept just for pleasure, e.g., some birds; but birds are also kept because of their useful products (meat, feathers, fur etc.). House insects are also reared for useful products (bee), and others give the material for mills (silkworm). The characteristic feature of domestic animals is considered, except for the ones already specified, is their ability to change up to a known limit of the external form, as well as internal qualities. Thanks to this ability, for the last two centuries a lot of success has been achieved like, in agricultural, some animals have transformed beyond recognition. Much can be said about the artificial breeds of almost all the main domestic animals, developed, mainly, in England. The short horned cow, Leicester and Southdown sheep, English racer horse and carthorse and, at last, the Yorkshire and Berkshire breeds of pigs, all of them (named breeds) show, up to some extent, under the influence of man, the great flexibility of animals, which it holds. If we take some sample from the named breeds and put them near an un-improved one, then the results of the development of the animal will seem improbable. The English bull weighs 50 - 70 pounds. Our country sheep weighs 50 - 60 pounds, The Southdown sheep is fattened up to 400 - 600 pounds, besides it gives 10 - 15 pounds of fine long wool. English pigs in one year reach 10 - 12 pounds. To get such a weight in our pigs, they must be reared for 3 - 4 years. English racers and carthorses are spectacular; they are very popular the world-over. The merino sheep also represents a remarkable example of change in its skin depending upon the demand for different products, prepared from its wool. Sheep breeders have many times measured, in the last decades, the length, thickness, twists and other properties of the merino wool. These days, they try to create such breeds, which would differ by maximum productivity not only in one direction, but combine, e.g., in large horned cattle, milking to the ability for food, in sheep – production of good wool, meat, etc. The works of the Blackwell and Collins brothers have specified only the possibility to achieve desirable changes in domestic animals, but have not specified any limit where to stop. The Dutch cow brought to America, gives more milk, than in Holland.
