It’s that time of year when we eat too much candy and spend way too much time contemplating the perfect Halloween costume. Whether your dog is dressing up as Lady Gaga or Angry Birds this Halloween, Brooklyn is the place to be for dog friendly events. Happy trick or treating and remember to watch out for chocolate and candy on the sidewalks.
