Happy Halloween!

Thank you Molly the Wally and Mollie!

Over the weekend, our local pet store had a Halloween party.

To get Finnackles in the mood before we got there, we practiced walking around the house with her costume on.  Last year, the wearing of the costume didn’t go so well, so instead of buying a new one knowing she would only wear it for a few minutes, we decided to recycle and wear the same one from last year.

And then Finn told me what she really felt about it…


So, off we go to the party – every dog from town was there!

And some other critters too!

We had a great time.  We played with some of the doggies and bobbed for biscuits and we got some good treats too!

I want to thank you all for your thoughts about us through the storm.  We hope that the other folks who were in her path are able to get their power back on quickly and have some clean water real soon.  Hope everyone has a very Happy Halloween!!

    No costumes here this year, we probably would have the same reaction, Finn. But you did look very nice all decked out there. Happy Halloween.

    Oh Finn! You need to learn — costumes are silly, but if you rock them, you’ll get SO many treats and pets!!

    Finn my sweet friend
    When you are wearing your natural Golden smile and your boo-tiful furs no costume is needed…but sometimes you have to humor the two leggers.
    What a great set of pictures…OMCs those are some big honking dogs in that last picture.
    Hugs madi your bfff

    Don’t feel bad Finn, I personally feel the same way you do about costumes and wearing of clothes in general. GET THEM OFF OF ME!!

    Hope that you have a pawsome Halloweenie.

    Dear Finn,

    I feel the same about the terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad things called “costumes”. I try to eat them too… They should never be put on a Dog, but they sure can be good chewing!

    Dear Finn and Family,

    Thank you so much for your lovely, heartwarming tribute to Suka on your post yesterday. It was very touching and meant a lot to me. Thank you also for lighting a candle to help Suka along his journey. I know it helped him.

    You were very dear friends to him and he adored Finn and admired her spunky personality.

    I am glad you are all safe from the storm Sandy. Thank you again for being such good, true friends to my Suka.

    Fantastic costumes. We’re with Finn…bandanas are as far as we’ll go.

    Our Halloween is over. We’ve been for our morning walk and got up a few dropped ‘treats’. Nap time now.

    Fin, you and I agree on the notion of wearing costumes – BOL! Everyone looked cute though and mom hopes one day I will tolerate being dressed. No chance mom!

    Hey Finn!
    Wow, you look great in your costume! But, I don’t really blame you for giving it a good chewing. Most of us hate costumes, but the really are okay once each year. Looks like a great parade and a fun group of furiends. Have lots of treats today!
    Grr and Woof,

    Hello, Finnacles! I’m sorry you didn’t like your costume, but you look so adorable in it! That pawty you went to looked like it was a lot of fun.

    What a relief that you weren’t affected too badly by Hurricane Sandy.

    Yeah, I took a break from blogging for a bit. No one seemed to be reading my blog with any regularity anymore and I’ve been super busy with school this semester. I’m taking 5 classes and a lab, so basically 6 classes. I’ve been working 20 or more hours a week and I’ve had a lot more outside activities for school this semester, such as a police ride along and attending musical performances. Still need to attend one more concert, go to the zoo and attend an art show, then do write ups on them all before the end of the semester.

    I didn’t miss blogging so much at first, but now that I’ve had a chance to visit a few of my bloggy friends, I realize how much I really have missed everyone. 😦
