Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ The Halloween spirit was alive Saturday at the Museum of the Great Plains as dogs and their owners got all dressed up for the 5th Annual Poochez Palooza.

Hundreds of owners came with their dogs dawned in Halloween costumes and trotted around to local vendors while enjoying live music.

Alice Crezo and her dog, Critter, who came as Dog-ula, has attended Poochez Palooza for 4 years now.

And what keeps Crezo coming back to the event year after year is simple, it is all about the dogs.

 

"More people need to do things for their dogs. It's not just a people's world you know. Animals are here too, and they need to be recognized the same as us," said Crezo.

 

As for Critter, Crezo said his favorite part is the music.

She said that anytime she let him down, he just had the best time.

And that's what the event is all about, an opportunity for owners to pamper their beloved K-9s.
