Costume Barkday Bash!!!
Hi Every Dog, Hammie, Toad etc!!!!!
This is Lacie. Mumsie ungrounded me as I'm having my fixit surgery on Friday, unless the vet cancels me again. They cancelled me for today as some big Golden had to have a bunch of toofers yanked. Sorta makes ya wanna go and brush, doesn't it?? Anyway, they didn't have enough time to do my surgery...I was an "add on." They subtracted me right off.
But to way more important issues. We now have six, yes, six DOGS celebrating their Barkdays at the ever-growing Costume Pawty we're throwing in Salem,Massachusetts....We're having it at the house Nathaniel Hawthorne made famous in his novel, "The House of the Seven Gables." I'm purposely NOT putting any scary pictures on this post...Scruffy keeps stuffing his front end under the bed when I talk bout the fun things to do that night. We think we might rent a Winnebago to drive up to the pawty. We're gonna need to haul lots of food, candy and pumpkin ice cream for all of the participants. Then, after we unload it, we're gonna decorate it in a NON SCARY fashion so some of the more sensitive dogs...ie Archie and Scruffy can enjoy themselves without being terrierfied. The Big House will be decorated so the more adventurous can get the scary shivers and have a blast!! I will personally be in the Big House. By popular demand, I'm bringing my princess bed again. But, that's another detail for later. As in the pic above, we can have apple bobbing...Am thinking of doing it with the dog's mouths tied shut, and they have to use their paws?? Just a little twist...
I'm sure these will be a huge hit. For some of the older doggies...Dunstan...it may save a vet visit for tooth extractions.
And, my own personal favorite...candy corn. My obedience training goes so much better with these little guys!!!!! The Barkday Celebrants are:
What a crazy lot of Barkdays at this time of the year!!
(Dewey and his mom Pittsburgh Asta(!) are blogless buddies of Koob who live here in the burg...Dewey is the hot, er I mean handsome wire foxy behind the tree in the invite. Wonder if he dates?)
