    Greetings!

    I like your bat headdress Pearl! Purple looks lovely on you.

    Can’t believe it is the end of October. This year is going quickly.

    Happy Halloween to all!

    What is Pearl holding in her paws?

    Good day to all.

    Good morning everyone! Pearl looks lovely and I can’t believe she stayed still for that. What a good dog!
    Hope everyone has a very happy Halloween and don’t eat too much candy.
    Last nights birthday party went really well so I’m taking the DDD out for a birthday lunch and he wore his birthday suit!

    The DDD is still special at 75!
    Enjoy today because tomorrow we start a slide through November and December. Good grief.

    Many happy returns of the day, DDD! Love the Halloween outfits!

    HRH, B: I thought the same thing.

    Great news! There may still be hope for Bernie and Chet’s finances after all. Look at what I just saw on sale in the men’s department at Macy’s!

    Not sure if it is Hawaiian or African, but it sure can’t hurt Bernie’s chances with his storage units!

    Pearl doesn’t appear particularly pleased with her headdress. Perhaps it is just having to wait before she pops her Halloween cracker.

    I’m thinking the next Porsche won’t have martini glasses or nekid ladies but will perhaps be….pink with a pink interior.

    Those are tropical print pants but not officially Hawaiian pants. No rhinos in Hawaii. So they are African pants in a tropical print. Still, it is looking up. Until Bernie opens that storage unit in anticipation of closing a deal to unload all those Hawaiian pants and checks a few boxes and finds the pants have all been destroyed by mice or are moldy from a roof leak or something else. Always so close but…

    Diana and Freyja have lovely halloween collars, party collars and even little t-shirt costumes that say “Alternative Cat” on them but we won’t be going out today. I’m still working on my Sunday pills. I was just diagnosed with Osteoporosis so I have another “empty stomach then wait 30 min.” pill added to the stack so Sunday is a slow day now. I’m taking my sister out to dinner for her birthday tomorrow so not that big a deal.

    It’s a lovely 70 degrees so I think I will start my seedlings for winter planting. No rain for the next 10 days so that will slow things down.

    Right now I’ll be going out to lock the gate and make sure all of the lights are out for tonight.

    Happy Halloween! I thought that was a light saber (from Star Wars) that Pearl was holding. I love the bat headband!

    We will put out candy for the kiddos but no answering the door. Don’t even know if there will be trick and treating or not.

    WTAFP: I hope you didn’t buy a pair! :^)

    RIO! What say you about the World Series and the Braves?

    Wose: I agree that Pearl looks pretty in purple!

    Birthday suit? Snort!
    The dirty old dawg looks younger than ever! Happy Birthday!

    I was dismayed to see the Braves fans doing the racist tomahawk chop last night. Hopefully they will have a new name next year. Guess I will root for Houston tonight. Go Astros!

    One trick or treater so far.

    Dawson!…That tomahawk chop and the chanting annoys the hell out of us here…grunt!…This is why the Braves will never ever be one of our favorite teams. We are watching the series till the end…May the best team winnit!…snort!

    Mr. Big is lucky that last year’s Halloween collars are still packed up in the storage unit. Or maybe I am lucky (Mr. Big is past due for a nail clipping session)

    My day ended on a sad note. The neighbors behind our house had gotten a cane corso puppy early 2020 during the Covid shutdown. I spent a lot of time making friends with him through the iron fence. He and I became fast friends. I haven’t seen him for a while and have been wondering where he was. My niece took her girls to that house tonight to trick or treat. She spoke to the man of the house and asked about Tito. He told her Tito started having seizures that could not be controlled. They had to put him down. The family is just devastated. They have an older mixed breed dog who is so sad and lost without his “brother.” The two dogs were always together and I see the older one looking lost in the backyard. He comes over to have his ears scratched but you can tell he is confused.

    Made me very sad.

    BooBear’s Mom: That is heartbreaking. Rest in peace, Tito.

    BooBear’s Mom: Oh, that is sad. Dogs need closure. They must have taken Tito to the vet and his “brother” never knew what happened.

    When Ramses died I took his body to my parent’s house on the way to the vet to make sure Candy knew what happened. And when Candy died Diana was there in her crate. She was let out after the vet left to see Candy before they took her body away.

    I’ve left instructions that if I should die before my dogs, they should be allowed to view my body and sniff it to make sure they have closure and know what happened to me.

    The lady down the street when I was growing up was a dog whisperer. All animals just seemed to be drawn to her. She was the only one besides family that Mitzi would sit next to and allow petting. All her life this lady wanted a St. Bernard and she finally got a puppy. But at about 18 months it developed a brain tumor and she had to have it put to sleep.

    Those of us that live with dogs know that their lives are so much shorter than ours. We work constantly to give them the best lives possible and take great pains and pay a great deal of money to make sure they are healthy and have the best care to try to provide them with as much time as possible. It is so sad that despite everything we do, they do not have the full time they should have had on this earth. Because we love them so much, we put their needs ahead of our love and although we want to keep them as long as possible, we make the decision to relieve their pain and give them their dignity, releasing them when all we want to do is hold them tight.
