Cute Hotel Doggie Friday: Howl-o-ween Edition
Friday is now officially Cute Hotel Doggie Day here at HotelChatter, and in honor of Halloween, we felt it was our duty to bring you Dogs At Hotels in Halloween Costumes. It looks like quite a few properties have had Halloween parties for their four-legged guests this week, including Houston’s Hotel Derek.
Dog Days Out are a regular affair at the pet-friendly Hotel Derek, but this Wednesday was a special Howl-o-ween Spooktacular. As you can see from these photos, it wasn’t just the dogs who dressed up: owners were welcome to come in costume, too. (Which seems fair, considering how silly and perturbed some dogs look when they’re in costume.)
Derek’s Dog Days Out monthly mixers are a a spin-off of the hotel’s Project Derek Dog, a runway contest held every May where one pup is chosen to be the Derek Dog for a year.
Reigning Derek Dog, Madison the poodle.
Proceeds from the Howl-o-ween event, and all Dog Days Out benefit local animal organization Citizens for Animal Protection. The next Derek Dog Day Out is scheduled for December 10: a birthday party for Madison. Tickets are $10, which includes a complimentary cocktail and appetizers. No word on dress code yet but we bet that poor pooch with Kermit can leave the piggy nose at home.
