Adorable Shaggy Dog Is Dressed as the World’s Cutest Mop for Halloween

As Halloween fast approaches, you may still be on the look-out for the perfect costume. Whether you DIY or purchase store bought ensembles, don’t forget that dressing up isn’t just for humans; Halloween simply wouldn't be complete without adorable pet costumes. Every year in Covington, Kentucky, dogs and their owners gather to debut their canine costumes at the MainStrasse Paw-Rade. This year, there was one pooch who stole the show.

Meet Keki, the Hungarian Puli whose owner utilized her naturally shaggy look by dressing her up as a mop. This breed’s distinct rope-like corded coat already closely resembles the cleaning tool, allowing this hilarious costume idea to earn top prize at the event. Complete with a yellow bucket, her owner wheeled her through the streets, as she delightedly mopped up the attention.

They may not look it, but Hungarian Pulis are very fast and agile. Fun fact: during ancient times, the breed was used as working sheep dogs. When wolves attacked the livestock, their thick, shaggy locks acted as protection from bites.
