Doggie fun on 4th: Visionary Pets on Parade

Baltimore’s wackiest opportunity to show off your dog (or other pet) — the American Visionary Arts Museum’s “Pets on Parade” — starts 10 a.m. tomorrow.

The event includes a pet talent show. To enter, show up and registerĀ at 9:30 at AVAM, located near the Inner Harbor at 800 Key Highway, at the foot of Federal Hill Park.

In past years, museum officials say, the pet talent show has featured a memorable range of acts, fromĀ singing dogs to hermit crabs re-enacting Revolutionary War battles.

In addition to the parade and talent contest, there will be a round of musical chairs and a chance (for pets) to cool off in pools.

Trophies will be awarded for Best Costume, Most Patriotic, Owner & Pet Look-alikes, Least Likely to Succeed as a Pet, and the esteemed Most Visionary Pet Award. Dressing up pets is encouraged but all animals must be leashed or carried.

License and registration, please

The next in our continuing series of Halloween costume ideas for your dogs is this one from i-pets.com.

How better to add to your bulldog’s already initimating look than by dressing him as a highway patrol officer, a slightly-drooling highway patrol officer, no less?

I’m guessing the inspiration for this costume was actor Broderick Crawford, who — long before I was born — appeared in a television show called Highway Patrol.
