How did we miss this?! How did we not make a pilgrimage to these two excellent dog parades at the beginning of May? Life is a tiny bit less awesome right now, but at least these pictures are a fair consolation.
In case you are wondering, yes, there are dogs that dress up like Princess Leia and Superman. That's what you get at the Sci-Fi Dog Parade in London, where owners dress their little preciousssses up as popular science fiction characters.
If England is too far to travel to get a little cuteness, you could have witnessed the annual "Running of the Chihuahuas" celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Washington. Ah, dogs in costumes never get old. Mark your calendars for next year, because clearly these are can't-miss events.
