New Jersey – The Hoboken Historical Museum sponsored its 6th Annual Pet Parade on October 4th along the banks of the Hudson.

The winners? In my book, they were all winners!

One was cutier than the next — including canines like Napoleon, who came dressed as themselves. Two of my favorites were Ruby the bride and her nervous groom, Ollie.

And, I can’t forget Ortley, the flower, named after the Jersey shore town: Monet, the artist; Nathan, the fireman; Baxter, the shark; Chelsea, the French Maid; and Pete, the pig.

In the end, a first prize trophy for Best Costume was awarded to Simon, “the gentleman” who at the end of the parade looked like he just wanted to kick back with a beer and watch the Giants play.

Sebastian, the Harry-inspired three-headed pooch, came in second. And, just behind the guys was a 2.5-pound Teacup Yorkie, Lucy, as a bumblebee.

The Best Group Costume was awarded to Elvis and Blinky the bird: “Jailhouse Rocks.”

And, the Best Pet Parent Look-Alike was awarded to the Wizard of Oz’s, Dorothy & Toto….
