For example: "Fido is 5 years old and loves to sit for treats, go for long walks in the park, and watch squirrels through the window. His costume is corn, because he's the most beautiful thing!"
One enrollment includes 1 dog and 1 human. If you have more than one dog participating, please include an additional enrollment for each dog. Each dog must have his or her own human escort. You may have more than one person escorting a dog, but no more than one dog per person.
