Hi, I am Vanessa Masterson, I am a junior reporter and I am 8 years old.
I had the idea of holding a Cat and Dog Costume Contest on Halloween. I came up with the idea in September.
I was not sure about dressing up cats and dogs in costumes, but a lot of people I know who love animals dress up their cats and dogs, so I thought it would be OK. I even know someone who had a wedding for her dogs!
I wanted to make sure the costumes were safe and kind to animals, so I included that in the contest rules. I handed out many fliers and put them up in popular places around town.
The contest took place on Halloween, it was very exciting and we had many entries. All of the costumes were creative, amazing and nice to the animals, which was the most important part.
It was very hard to choose but, in the end, there could only be three winners. It was a great time and we look forward to seeing you next year.
Here are the winners:
Frankie Rousseau UPS Dog
Maizy Trump the Cat
George the Super Dog
Here are the runners up:
Hot Dog Friday
Ozzie Teddy Bear
Thank you to everyone who participated!
