Well folks it’s that time of year again when my dog trainer mom encourages yours truly to play dress-up. Yep, it’s Halloween! This means costumes – but it also means TREATS! And when it comes to being dressed as something like a skunk, it means CHICKEN!
As much of a hippie as I am – cuz I’d rather be naked, when it comes to chicken I’ll do just about anything. I’m not sure what she ordered this year, or how many outfits I’ll have – I’ve been told I have more than Cher. Hmm, I wonder if she gets chicken too?
Anyway, as an inquisitive canine who enjoys this “fright night” as much as all the little ghosts and goblins, I thought it’d be a good idea to throw in my two cents on helping to keep your pets safe. Remember, us non-human animals have difficulty comprehending the whole Halloween concept – we know treats are involved, but all the other stuff is quite baffling.
For training tips to help teach your dog to greet people politely at the door, and for teaching your dog to play dress-up, make sure you check out our special Halloween Dear Inquisitive Canine column.
These pictures of me were taken from years past. We like to surprise everyone by waiting until the big night before sharing info on what I’m wearing.
If you have Halloween pet photos you’d like to share, we’d love to see them. You can post them on our Inquisitive Canine Facebook Page.
