Halloween is the second largest holiday in terms of spending only behind Christmas. Of the total spent, about $350 billion is spent just on pet costumes.

Now I live with cats and I can't imagine any of them tolerating any kind of costume. They barely put up with their identification and flea collars, and even some of those are periodically found abandoned through the house.

When I search for honeybee-related items, though, I have found more and more bee costumes for pets, especially dogs. 

Most of the dogs in my life were large. We didn't dress them up or put costumes on them, although my St. Bernard did like to remove her cotton scarf and carry it around in her mouth. The red scarf was to keep the collar from rubbing against her skin but she had other ideas.

Last year, a friend of mine shared a picture of her dog Freddie all ready to trick or treat. I laughed out loud when I first saw it.

I have to admit, Freddie sure makes a cute honeybee, don't you think?
