Your only friend growing up was a drooling Saint Bernard named Cool Joe. He was an OK pal that is, until he was bitten by a rabid bat and went insane in the membrane. He launched an ambush, killing your pa and leaving you stranded in an 81 Ford Pinto. Youve spent the past three decades wondering if every dogs loyal canine brain has a serial killer mode. Your life coach thinks you need to expose yourself to more dogs, so perhaps this Sundays Howl-o-ween at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is your safest bet. Vicious bulldogs will be disguised as bumblebees, German shepherds as pimps, and pit bulls as well-meaning firefighters. The delirious cuties will sashay around the botanical garden, competing for best-dressed awards. Theres even one for best owner/dog costume, so hide your cynophobia behind an outfit of your own. The dog party runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
