Photos: Ruth Barker Ginsberg, Puppy ‘It’ and 50 Shades of Grey(hound) at JP Dog Costume Show

Jamaica Plain's dogs showed off their creative side on Sunday at the 15th Annual JP Dog Parade, Costume & Fashion Show. There were two Supreme Court Justices, nurses, turtles, superheroes, dinosaurs, skunks, rainbows and more! Participants met at the First Baptist Church and then paraded down Centre Street to the Loring-Greenough House for the fashion show. A fun-loving crowd laughed, cheered, oooohed and ahhhhhed as adorable pups (and their owners) strutted up and down the red carpet. All proceeds for the event benefited the City of Boston's Animal Shelter.
