Strut Your Mutt

Pets dress up for costume contest in ...

— Countless dogs in costume along with their owners descended on Germain BMW of Naples for the fourth annual Strut Your Mutt event - a fun Halloween themed competition to benefit the Humane Society of Naples.

Lots of local pet related vendors were on hand, many who donated to the cause. Celebrity judges awarded prizes in a number of categories, including: most original, best homemade, cutest, scariest, best celebrity look-alike, best pet talent and best group.

In the end the dogs and one rabbit took home prizes with the Grand Prize going to Samantha Ziegler and her alligator-attired dachshund Gus.

The Humane Society of Naples indicated that the event grows in popularity each year and that they hoped to raise close to $3,000 with this season's event.
