Another Halloween has come and gone, and once again I have no candy left to eat! But it wasn’t always this way!
When I was a kid, I loved Halloween. It was great to go out after dark, run around the neighborhood (and beyond), and come home after a few hours of begging with a giant bag of assorted candies, gum and cookies. But, there were those parents who insisted on giving us something that was “good for us” like fruit or those little boxes of raisins. They’d say stuff like “raisins are natures candy” …So we’d say, does that mean that eggs are natures hand grenades? (j/k)
About dusk last evening Patchs and I decided to go for a walk to see if we could see any ghosts, goblins or gools running amuck in our neighborhood. Well, needless to say, it didn’t take long before we saw the first of many. It was truly frightening!!!
As we continued deeper into the darkness of the neighborhood, Patch’s level of excitement began to build to a fevered pitch. Just then a really scary ghost and a wicked looking witch called out, “Hi Patchs!!! Well, Patchs went CrAZzy. Do you remember the movie, “The Hound of the Baskervilles?” … Well, OK, that wasn’t her! She was more of the “Tail Wagging the Dog” and “Happy Dance Dog” type of crazy! She was having a blast! There were kids everywhere!
As we continued to walk, we ran across several dogs too. Most of them we knew, but we also met a few new ones. With the owner’s permission, every dog we met got a special Halloween Treat from Patchs. It was a great sight, and everyone enjoyed it. Imagine the scene! Patchs and the neighbor dogs standing on the curb, hanging out and eating treats. Even the kids wanted to get in on it! I’m sure glad I had a big bag of dog treats in my jacket!
