This past weekend the Maryland SPCA held their 17th annual “March for the Animals” in Baltimore’s Druid Hill Park. Along with the 1.5 mile walk-a-thon, there was a dog agility course, a “flea-less” market of pet friendly vendors, musical chairs for the dogs, and of course, a pet costume contest. Despite all the attention focused on this wonderful cause, I couldn’t help but wonder whether our four-legged friends love, or loathe, being dressed up for our amusement.

Let’s take a quick look at the adorableness from last weekend along with other past pet-centric events.
