Hallowe'ens Past

With Hallowe'en being right around the corner, I wanted to give you a brief look at that great job Dad has done since I got here to make Hallowe'en REALLY fun.

In 2006, my first Hallowe'en in my Forever Home, the theme was Mad Science. Mommy had set my kennel on the front step and kiddies came into the tent (yes, Dad had set up a tent) and saw all the wonderful mad sciencey stuff and got thier candies from Mommy, who was sitting next to me. Most of them didn't notice me in my kennel because it was dark int he tent, the kennel is dark, and I'm dark. So I would move and they'd scream. It was GREAT!
This zombie might make another appearance this year, Daddy is still working on it.

Mr. Eccles might be retired now, he's been falling apart for longer than I've been around. Daddy says he's the last child who didn't say thank you for the Hallowe'en candy.
I try not to remember this guy. I don't think he survived storage very well because I didn't see him last year.

So, last year (2007) the Daddy's theme was pirates. I was involved in the whole thing once again. Mostly in a snoopervisory role.
Here I am helping with the set up. This was about the time the mail man came by and we had to give him candy because he was our first customer.

And we'd like you to meet Bosun Chunder, the amazing barfing pirate. He'll be coming back this year as Zombie Chunder, the amazing barfing zombie.
This year, it's Zombies. I don't know where I'll be this year, but you can bet I'll be right there in the middle of everything.
And for my nose fans who can't go a day without seeing the schnozz,
Sniff ya later!

Pei-Ess Oh, and Mommy saved the day and brought some food home for me. PHEW! Thank you Mommy! I was so worried, I think I might have lost a wrinkle!

Hi Bolo
Your Halloween display from last year was very scary. I hope nobody wet their costume when they saw you move inside the tent.

Love Ruby

Wow you guys really do a lot for Halloween don't you! We don't really do Halloween over here.

That first Zombie pic sorta looks like TBU when he wakes up in the morning! ;-)

Wow, Bolo, your Dad and Mom really do lots of cool stuff for Halloween! I mostly just hide out with The Girl in the basement so I don't hear the fireworks (they really bother me). I'm glad you have fun on Halloween!

Brown dog kisses,

I like the vomiting zombee. That would look great in my yard.

I am very excited about the nose contest.
