New Photo Book Celebrates Canine Couture

Halloween has gone to the dogs. In photographer Karen Ngo's delightful book, "Indognito: A Book of Canines in Costume" (Little, Brown, $19.99), a stable of pooches sit, stay and pose in a variety of unforgettable getups.

Ngo, with a background in New York fashion, has a whimsical approach to dressing the four-legged rather than the two-legged. A French bulldog in Elvis garb is more costume than couture; nevertheless he would be as good to go on the runway as he would be the Thompson Park dog run.
