Hallowe'en can be a lot of fun for adults and children alike. My mother, Karine loves it and loves to dress up, as you can see she even has accomplices for her pleasure. As fun as Hallowe'en is there are a lot of dangers for us dogs.
The first is that people come to the door with sticks and masks and guns. I don't know about you, but my basic watchdog 101 course has told me, that people coming to the door with a gun and a bag...means trouble, so I will bark. I don't know if it is a real threat or not, so the entire night I am worried. I hope Karine gives me some herbal relaxing medicine or even puts me in the study while this is going on. It is very stressful for us!
The second problem with Hallowe'en is the treats. This is more applicable to Sophie who loves food. Hallowe'en treats, the chocolates especially are poisonous to us. Keep them away from us! They taste good, we will over indulge but unlike you, we might die or get seriously ill!
The third problem with Hallowe'en from a dog's point of view is the door that opens and closes...if I perceive a serious threat I will run out the door! I don't know who or what I will meet out there! Vampires, dog killers, wild people....it is pretty scary out there with flaming pumpkins, ghostly sounds and hoards of costumed invaders with weapons.
Enjoy Hallowe'en but think of us too. Keep us safe!
