When A Stranger Howls
While puppy-sitting, Bentley gets a strange phone call asking if he has checked on Pierre and Paisley. The calls continue through the night becoming more ominous. The police trace the number only to discover the person is calling from inside the house! Bone-chilling!

Local dogs have been disappearing one by one with no sign of struggle. When Pierre goes missing, a group of friends unites to find a mysterious clown named Bentleywise. He has been seen luring pups into the sewers with promises of squirrels. sIT is everything you are afraid of!

   “We hope that you aren’t too frightened to go out among the ghosts and goblins after seeing these scary movie posters!
   You might be wondering why I am dressed as Captain Hook. The answer is right beside me. My little sister wanted to be Tinkerbell and since she is my best friend, I wanted to match her. We are going trick or treating together with our parents!
   Bentley and Pierre will be at their house getting their Academy Award speeches ready.
   Be sure to visit Blogville’s Murphy & Stanley and Oreo’s for the Halloween Parade!”
Happy Haunting!

Why I Am So Thankful This Thursday

   It has been a good while since I participated in a Thankful Thursday post. Not because I didn’t have anything to be thankful for, it is just that my calendar is full, so I put it off for another week.
  Sometimes you receive such good news that all other things get pushed back and you want to shout THANK YOU from the rooftop or quietly with your head bowed. In this case, I want to do both!

Hair-Raising Halloween Health Haunts

• Only dress your pet up if they enjoy the process. Costumes that are too confining or block their vision are to be avoided. We usually dress the Bayou Boys up for their photo session and then we are done. They do not participate in trick or treating and we don’t go to pet costume contests. If your pet decides to ingest part of a costume, you could be spooked with a $1,872 vet bill to remove it.

The Power of Power Pops

   The other day when our delivery of Dr. Harvey’s arrived, the Bayou Boys seemed unusually giddy. I know they love their Paradigm and Pierre can barely contain himself while I mix in their protein and oil each meal. No, this was something different. That’s when I saw the bags of Dr. Harvey’s Power Pops inside the box!

Keep Calm and Enjoy Friday 13th

   Are you a superstitious person? You are safe spending part of your Friday Thirteenth with us. We are tossing caution to the wind and jumping on three blog hops for the weekend. 
   Our first hop is Da DB Boyz and Rosie’s Flower Friday. Join in for some beautiful flora throughout Blogville. We are sharing some gorgeous flowers that Skipper photographed when he was in Eisenach, Germany for work. I dream of having window boxes like these one day.

   The first week of October is National Walk Your Dog Week. It is a great time to point out the obvious and not so obvious reasons that you should get off your butt and move your mutt!
