Halloween is my favorite time of year and I love covering the dog costume beat for PetsLady. For this year, we have some new categories of Halloween costume awards for dogs and cats, including Best Looking Witch, Most Literary, Most Neurotic and our first one out, the Best Swine Flu Worker Pet Costume Awards. Enjoy them!

They are totally shabby chic!

One in five companies are now allowing workers to bring their pets into the office. Pets At Work,

clever backpack and pet shelter for those lucky employees, or for those
who just like to have their (small) pooches and their laptops with them
wherever they go! Here's P@W!
