Houston dog-friendly events for October 2016

October and November are hands down my favorite months of the year!  Cooler weather, fall festivals, college football, pumpkins, lazy Sundays, costumes, and trick-or-treating!  Whether or not you dress your dog up for Halloween, get ready because there are a TON of fun dog-related activities happening this month in Houston!
