If you’re sick of Halloween by this point in the day, let us resurrect your love for the spookiest day of the year.

Because if terrible Twitter names and scooping out pumpkin guts haven’t got you in the spirit, this is the only thing that can – dogs in Halloween costumes.

Yes, whether it’s a pug or poodle, every canine can have a costume.

Some people dress their pets in costumes they buy online and others have got a little more creative with the dressing up.

From the basic dog wearing your old devil horns to elaborately created handmade tutus, we love them all

Let’s take a look at some of the best costumes from dogs on social media this year.

To kick us off, Rufus, who belongs to Metro.co.uk’s social media editor Jay

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Dogs can be trained to to detect cancer and other diseases in humans. Cancerous cells release different metabolic waste products than healthy cells in the human body. Dogs may even be able to sniff out cancer cells simply through smelling someone’s breath.
