No dog wants to be left behind when their favorite kids are out trick or treating.

But in order to go for that walk on Halloween night, they have to dress the part.

Joining us with some costume ideas was pet style expert Dara Foster, and two dogs from the Humane Society of New York who are up for adoption: 5-year old male twins named Humphrey and Bogard, a chihauha/Jack Russell mix.

Two other dogs are also up for adoption: Roger, a 6-year old American Eskimo, and Murphy, a 3-yera old Chihuahua mix.
