ME WEAR A HALLOWEEN COSTUME? HUMILIATING!

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?

DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT SHARING MY BLANKET!
DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT SHARING MY BLANKET!

I’m in the dog house with Mr. Magoo. You know the old joke about the rancher who was bringing his new mail-order bride home in the buckboard? The horse balked and refused to move. The rancher when to face the animal and said, “Strike one.” A few miles down the road, the horse stumbled. The rancher said, “Strike two.” A few miles further and the horse reared up when a deer shot past. The farmer said, “Strike three,” and shot the horse in the head. The new wife got hysterical, crying and screaming. The old rancher looked at her and said, “Strike one.” 

 

Well, I’m up to strike three.

My first blunder was failing to have the furnace turned on when the cold snapped last week. I hadn’t because I’d decided if I didn’t have my furnace turned on, it wouldn’t get cold. I was wrong. Freezing temps, snow, frost, and I had one space heater, a fireplace, and oven. Mr. Magoo was uncharacteristically blaming. Strike one!

 

BEAUMONT CAME AS GOLDEN RETRIEVER

Strike two came with a Halloween costume. All my friends were dressing their dogs. It was cute. The kids would love it. Mr. Magoo didn’t. He was forced to wear this awful costume with a frilly ruff around his neck. And it wasn’t even a real costume – just this purple thing with bats on it. Humiliating! His friend Beaumont got to go as a golden retriever. Moose was Super Dog. And here he was – purple!  Strike two!

 

It didn’t help that I gave him a new toy. When I kept giving candy to

Moose got to come as a super hero

Moose got to go trick-or-treating as a super hero

 passing strangers, he suspected I’d make him give them his toy too.

Don't even thtink about taking this toy!

Mr. Magoo, soft-coated Wheaten terrier, dares any trick-or-treater to try to take his toy

That could have been a deadly error on my part.

 

Now I’m on alert. Of course he keeps the toy. And his dinnerwill be on time every night. Three treats a night and he doesn’t even have to roll over. And I’m not even considering a Santa hat at Christmas!

 

But with all that, it was a beautiful night for trick-or-treating

What do you mean I don't get candy?

What do you mean I don't get candy?

— and a perfect Halloween sky!

PERFECT SKY FOR A HALOWEEN NIGHT

    These are REALLY great pictures! Bones feels bad- he thinks he was the reason Mr. Magoo was forced into wearing the PURPLE!
