Best in Show?

Shelling out the big bucks for a pet costume could be considered a fine investment if your furry friend takes the $25,000 grand prize in the Petco Make a Scene Halloween photo contest. (A year’s supply of Old Mother Hubbard Treats is part of the prize as well.) 

Last year more than 5,000 entrants vied for a $5,000 grand prize. If you’ve got patient Facebook friends, you might want to enlist them here; the top five vote-getters win a $100 Petco gift card. An official Petco panel will also dole out Best Dog, Best Cat and Best Other awards that come with a $500 gift card.
