For a dog who thinks people are creepy, Halloween has got to rank up there as one of the worst holidays. Loads of children dressed up in odd accroutements. Eeek! What could be scarier for a scaredy dog? Possibly July 4th if said dog is also noise sensitive, huh-hmmmm.
Ike and I took an illegal walk down by a small creek that runs through Canton and abuts the park where NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED. Since it was already pitch black out and no one could see us, in order to save my sanity and my dog's, I broke the silly law. And in this case I do think it is unfair. But anyway....
Ike was a good boy with the children we saw. Definitely his ears were pricked, tail erect, do I need to start barking madly stare but MINIMAL barks and minimal treating. Yippeee!!
We are now safely sequestered in my house. I have no doorbell because of a karma incident over the summer - I yelled at a magazine seller who rang my doorbell three times in a row. I told him he was never going to make any sales if he kept doing that. After I went upstairs he vandalized my doorbell. Ah well, I deserved it! And this way unless I am expecting you, I will never know you came. Hee, hee.... And Ike is safe from scary children dressed up as ghouls and goblins.
