DEVELOPING: Area Costumers Sell Out Bootleg “Devellen” Costumes To City’s Dogs In Record Time

Above: Larchmont backyard resident Oscar dry-tests a spanking-new Devellen™ costume Wednesday following water, a biscuit and a brief nap. Oscar, a good boy, walked all the way to Aah’s!! in Westwood Village to purchase the costume, one of five left in the city at the time of purchase. The pint-sized costumes were hastily created to satisfy rampant demand following recent developments between Ellen DeGeneres and the Pasadena-based Mutts &Moms adoption agency. It is unclear at press time whether Oscar considers this year’s costume choice an ironic social statement, an outrageous icon-bashing front, or simply the costume de rigueur for his class.
