Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden located in Coral Gables was the host of this year’s Howl-O-Ween Dog event that took place on Sunday October . We enjoyed a wonderful and entertaining day surrounded by spooky and playful hand-made decorations by Bev Murphy, who has for the past five years decorated the gardens for this time of year with found plant materials such as coconut palms, inflorescences, royal palm leaf bases and anything else Ms. Murphy believes will have a second life as a ghost, goblin or witch.

Amongst the many day’s events and activities, there were several agility and obedience competitions and demonstrations given by Paws in Motion, Miami Obedience Club and the Coral Gables K-9 Unit.  There were also many vendors like The Dog Bar and Natural K9 Supply with lots of fashion, food and essentials for the dog lovers. 

A special enjoyment, DOGA (Doggy Yoga) held at the park’s Bailey Palm Glade and the doggie caricatures by Dino DiArtist were definitely a sight to see!  But the Dog Costume Cost was the day’s crowd pleaser with lots of participants in very original costumes and wonderful personalities. It was great to see all the participants meeting each other, we can safely say it was the day where we’ve seen the most wagging tails together in one place.

 We hope to see many more Dogs in costumes and their owners next year!
