Chloe Firestone, 4, captures the perfect photograph of her dog Maggie as she pokes her head out of a cloth cutout at Pine Ridge Park during Howl-o-ween on Saturday, Oct. 29. The Rye Brook resident’s mother Nicole holds the 9-year-old rescue animal up behind the cloth.
Blind Brook Middle School seventh-grader Gabby Gonzalez poses in a Halloween-themed cutout with 1-year-old Wheaton terrier Lulu, her family’s dog. Gabby’s sister Saralina, a Ridge Street Elementary School fifth-grader, watches while their mom Stacy takes a picture.
Cookie the 1-year-old cocker spaniel rocks out with a guitar as she gleefully runs toward her owner Faheem Desai, who lives on Bellefair Road. She was one of more than 30 dogs who came to Howl-o-ween with their owners.
A plastic blow-up Scooby Doo watches over the real dogs at Saturday’s event, ready to help Village officials solve the mystery of which dog costume was the cutest.
Carol Marinaccio, who works with the Humane Society of Westchester, holds Tilly the Chihuahua mix. Dressed as a bat, the 2-year-old is ready to fly into an adoptive forever home.
Millie the beagle, who is decked out in a pumpkin costume, reticently sniffs Victor the Chihuahua shark, who greets her in passing. Millie, 10, lives at the Humane Society of Westchester and is up for adoption, while Victor, 1, lives with his owner Iryna Morris in Larchmont.
