Halloween Is Going To The Dogs
Well, autumn is rapidly approaching. You know what that means, the weather will be cooling down, pumpkins will ripen, and before you know it your doorbell will ringing followed by cries of “trick or treat!” on Halloween night.
Halloween in this day and age is not as much fun as it used to be. Maybe some of us are growing older and adding the term “grumpy” to our resumes. Maybe in some instances it isn’t as safe as it used to be years ago when we were children trick or treating in our neighborhoods. Maybe now that we may be parents we worry and now know how much our parents worried about us going on out on Halloween night.
Halloween offers an opportunity for a night of family fun. Instead of worrying where the kids are, go out with them and wear a costume too. By wearing a costume, your children won’t be embarrassed by being seen with mom or dad. You might even get some calorie chocked candy along the way. Get together with a few neighbors and walk near the children, not with them. (Please refer to the above listed rule regarding embarrassing your children.) This will give you the opportunity to meet and greet the neighbors you know and meet the ones you haven’t met before.
While you’re out with the children, you just might be creating a problem at home. Your “fur child” can become distressed by the constant doorbell ringing and the children’s loud and excited voices. So to save stressing your dog and avoiding damage to your home, why not dress your dog in a costume and take Fido trick or treating as well.
You can dress them in many different costumes, some of which might even compliment what you and your regular children are wearing. It might be a costume that is totally opposite what people expect from your breed of dog. Can you imagine a Great Dane in a diaper and baby bonnet or a Rottweiler dressed in a tutu? The rottie will probably never forgive you, but you will have fun. How about dressing you Pug in a lady bug costume, or your Dachshund in a lion costume.
One thing I can tell you is your dog in costume will be a great ice breaker as you meet and greet your neighbors. People will more than likely compliment your dog’s costume and start a conversation. Dog lovers can’t help talking to other dog lovers and owners. It’s like grandparents showing photos of their grandchildren to one another and anyone else they can corner.
