Let me be your teddy bear

When not in costume, Munchkin the shih tzu is lolling about at home in sunny California. 

The three-year-old female pooch became a Halloween hit this year when it made its debut in an oh-so-cute teddy bear outfit on YouTube.

The video garnered nearly 60,000 views and went viral when it was re-posted on social media, so much so that Munchkin now has its own Facebook account.

Oh, and if you want to rustle up a similar costume for your furry one, there are instructions on the YouTube site.
