Dogs dress up for Halloween parade

Nearly 300 of New York's best-dressed dogs have taken part in the 25th annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade in the USA.

The costumed canines took part in a runway competition, hoping to earn thousands of dollars in prize money.

Creative costumes on display included superheroes, dinosaurs and a dog dressed as an alligator.

Dog owner Robert Krzywicki says his dachshund, Daisy Mae, was treated ``like a movie star.''
