The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are just barely beginning to turn (probably because there is a drought) and although it's not officially Fall yet, my Mother is gearing up for the Fall baking season, fall decorating, football and the holidays that will be upon us quickly. I am helping her get ready although, I really don't care about baskets, pumpkins and pumpkin scented candles, well, actually, do they have peanut butter scented candles? Last weekend I helped her make ginger crisp cookies. She made a few just for me. They were so good that now when she bakes them I go into the kitchen and try to scale the cabinets to get on the counter. But alas, I'm too short and my nails are too long.
Anyway, what I am most looking forward to is halloween. Yes, I know it's early, but I need to get a costume this year as I believe we will actually be haunted by trick-or-treaters this year. Maybe, I can go trick-or-treating too. I think I need to be schmoozing up to my little neighborhood buddy so he'll invite me along. Now that I am two-years-old, maybe Mommy will let me go trick-or-treating. I can see it now-one crisp evening, dressed up in a fancy disguise, my buddy and I go door-to-door barking at all the humans. Some of these humans are dressed up and I of course will be afraid of some of them, but they still dump handfuls of candy into my little bucket. I can't carry my bucket so I make my neighborhood buddy carry mine when I am not delving into it. We get all the peanut butter, marshmallows, milk bones, cookies, rawhides, peanut butter and sweet candies any dog can ever enjoy. There is also a costume contest and I win the contest because I outsmart all the kids and am dressed as a.....well, hmm...I don't know. This brings me back to the point of my post, I need to be thinking about this now so that I have plenty of time to make the right decision and order my costume if necessary.
I can't decide what I should be this year. I have a feeling that we will dig out my old costume from last year and the cheapskate, I mean, my Mom, will make me wear that again this year.
Well, I did a little research and so here are my picks:
1. A Pirate
2. Mad Cow Disease
3. A Football Player
4. An Elephant...
...WHAT? Anyway, we found these costumes on-line at The Haute Hound or Trendy Puppy.
Anyway, I need to go convince Mommy to make me more ginger cookies and to add some peanut butter this time.
