Smooch gets ready for Halloween

Smooch has never gone out on Halloween before, so when she asked me if we could 
throw together a costume for her this year and go beg for treats, how could I say no?

Smooch: So tell me again how this works?
Me: When we get up to the door, bark a few times, then say "trick or treat."



Me: Then give the person your most imploring look.



Me: If you're lucky, they won't try to trick you or make fun of your lame costume...



...and they'll just hand over the goods.



Smooch: I love Halloween!



Me: Then we go around the block and change costumes 
so they won't recognize you when you knock on their door again.

  24. We've never had any little goblins here - I guess they all know we're seniors and probably cheap! But I would love to see Smooch at my door, although I'm afraid Emma the Calico Queen would not approve!

  26. Smooch is one incredible muse, isn't she? Never seen a dog with so much expression...outside of Blue Dog. You could do an entire book on her alone....but then everyone else at the ranch would be mad at you.
