Dog owners showed off their creativity at the 11th Annual Halloween Howl sponsored Saturday by Off Leash Area Edmonds (O.L.A.E) at the off-leash dog park at Marina Beach Park.

Edmonds City Councilmember Diane Buckshnis, one of Edmonds’ best-known dog lovers and a founder of the dog park, was on hand to coordinate the festivities, which also included vendor booths and a raffle drawing for pooch-friendly prizes — with all proceeds benefiting Off-Leash Area Edmonds.

  1. Best three hours of fun and laughter! These little and big cutie pie D-ogees were all dressed from head to tail, sporting the best ever costumes. Simply charming, hilarious, unbelievable, just plain silly and so entertaining and not one major rumble…..all well behaved. Thanks to the people that held this event and to all the creative and fun dog mom and pops who got them there. Everyone should try to make this event next year for the sheer entertainment and fun……..and Yuki and Sakuna stood just the way they are in the photograph above not moving at all for two hours…….looked just like that, not moving an inch, the whole time, same spot….hilarious

  2. Awesome day, despite the rain! Thanks to everyone for participating. The Seahawk baskets went fast and hope to see you all next year!
