Halloween photos. Bloopers included…

Hey everybody! Squirmy don’t-pee-on-the- pumpkin Wormy here on a super Saturday! And it’s the day before Halloween! Yee haw. The Warden bought enough treats for at least 50 kids. Our average is 6. In a good year. So you can guess what happens with the rest. She’s already been sampling stuff – she said to make sure it’s “fresh”. She sure has sampled a large pool. I almost started wondering if she was going to have to go back to the store to buy more.

This is just my second year experiencing the whole Halloween dress up phenomenon. Well. We don’t really wear full costumes. The Warden knows she can only push the dress up thing so much. So it’s generally limited to some neck wear and the dreaded head gear. She starts taking photos in like August. Just joking. Sort of. Anyway, she starts with individual shots and some of the best results of those are seen above.

Now you’ll note there was no head gear in that round. I had a number of acceptable images, and of course, the Boss also did. But then there is the Coyote. Remember, this is without head gear. This is JUST with a little garland around his neck. And THIS is what she had to deal with…

Boredom…

Indignancy…

Disdain…

She finally got the shot you see above and she quit. She didn’t even TRY to get his ears up. He was NOT in a modeling mood. He’s temperamental when it comes to photography.

Several days later, she attempted individual shots with head gear. Personally, I’m not sure what the head gear was. I guess little pumpkins? I’m not quite sure why anyone would wear pumpkins on their head – but you only get so many choices at the Dollar store. It was that or angel halos. Clearly that would not have been appropriate.

Here’s my serious pumpkin head shot. I look like I was told there would be no treats…Those pumpkins look like another set of ears…

Here’s my happy pumpkin head shot…

The Boss always looks happy. No matter what he is wearing…although personally, I think his hair is a mess…

And then we have the Coyote….first the mug shot version…

Then the look that says “I am going to pee in your slippers”…“get me the number for Animal Control”…

At one point he went down and refused to get up….

But THEN… miracle of miracles (actually he just conceded defeat) and he gave her this charmer. Not bad! Although the caption would not exactly be “Happy Go Lucky.” More like, “Looking for new home….”

So with the individual shots finished, the next round is the group shot…

This was a good one…

And this was pretty cute…

This wasn’t tragic…

But then… out came the head gear. Note the response by the Coyote…

Here the Coyote agrees to look at the camera, but he has no ears. And really, could he look any more sad?

In this one, we thought the Warden dropped a treat…

I was SURE there was a treat under those leaves…Note the Boss has gone back into character…

I DID find…something…

Here the Coyote is praying “if I close my eyes, maybe this nightmare will all disappear”…

Then the Coyote and I hear something. Or we pretend to. And the Boss has a wardrobe malfunction…

And FINALLY we got THIS one…

I believe it was at this point that the Warden started jumping up and down, blowing the assorted whistles she had hanging around her neck to get our attention, and she ran over doling out dozens of treats. She quickly plucked the offensive head gear from the Coyote’s head, at which point he joyfully jumped up; I shook off my head gear and proceeded to rip off the pumpkins from the head band, and the Boss just stayed there smiling, waiting for more treats.

Needless to say, we don’t dress up when the 6 kids who are brave enough to come down the driveway, arrive for their treats….

Happy Halloween!!! Canines – stay away from the chocolate. And big two-leggeds- be sure to save some for the kids.

Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
