Howl-O-Ween Safety

Happy Howl-O-Ween!

I know, these are last year's costumes. I apologize. Next year, we'll make it up to you. We promise!

But now that I have your attention, I'd like for you to indulge the worry-wort in me for a second.

Please be extra careful when opening your doors for trick-or-treaters. Many dogs often scramble to get outside when the door opens (not to mention the added chaos of hearing a doorbell ring). Some dogs might be frightened by the presence of people in costumes, and make a run for it.

Please also remember that chocolate is deadly for dogs. Keep that candy out of reach and also be diligent about candy wrappers which may cause blockage if ingested.

But most importantly, have a safe howl-o-ween! Did any of you dress up for howl-o-ween? If so, what did you dress up as?

p.s. Blogger had decided to edit Bruno (well, most likely Bruno's FLH) out of the posted picture. I have no idea why. But something tells me that perhaps Carmela has someone from Blogger on her payroll . . .


  1. what a great reminder! One of Buzz's friends was hurt last halloween when he bolted out the door and into the street! Oncoming traffic...oh dear.

    My friends and I are doing a group costume...the cast of Glee. I'm Sue. HA HA HA.


  2. The momma says she has to add to the worry wart list!!! If you take your doggie out trick or treating with the kiddies like the momma did last year, keep an eye on them. There will be a lot going on and it's easy to miss them eating or picking up something they shouldn't have. And just ask the momma how much fun a trip to the emergency vet is after your puggie eats a rock =)

    Happy Halloween!!!!


  3. Thanks for the reminder! Mom keeps our harnesses and collars (with tags and leash attached) on us during trick or treating hours - just in case.

  4. I love the costumes even last year! Thanks for the safety reminders. We get maybe a few kids, but last year Roscoe was not amused and nipped at one, so they are going to watch from the kitchen this year.
