They Come in Peace: Dogs Dressed As Aliens!
But runner-up Meatball (pictured above) put up a good fight. Like the tin-foil-clad turtles and antennae-bouncing ferrets of past competitions, the teacup Chihuahua from Arvada, Colo., had his radar set on space invader as about 100 people watched. The little dog in goggles traveled with his owners Dee Dee and Kevin Morris on a motorcycle just for his shot at the stars. Dee Dee told the Roswell Daily Record that Meatball – who wore a cape and little sneakers – already seems to love the extra attention at just 13 weeks old: "We start the Harley up and he knows it's time to get dressed up."
