"Trick or treat. Smell their feet. Give these puppies something good to eat."

Halloween isn't just for the little ones--though grown-ups need to admit their youthful days of ringing doorbells for candy have come and gone.

However, dogs, be they puppies or geriatrics, can join the fun every year. And let's be honest, most of them do. Thankfully, they usually put on a costume just like the kids. But they leave the doorbell ringing for the humans.

"Life goals: Get more treats than the mini humans."

"We didn't even have to do tricks for these treats."

"If the Yellow Brick Road is lined with dog food, then we'll play dress-up any day."

Jokes aside, Halloween can be a danger to dogs if the pooches get a hold of chocolate or wrappers. Sometimes the candy smell is so enticing that canines swallow the wrapped candy whole.

But vigilant dog guardians can still have fun with the kids and canines come Halloween. It's good exercise and entertainment for everyone--pooches included.
