Day 9 of 13 Days of Halloween 2018

Trick-or-Treat, Give me something good to eat!

Halloween is practically upon us and in order to prepare for the big day I thought we would do a little Trick-or-Treating… for the dogs, of course.

I decorated the backyard with some spooky Halloween decorations. I set up a small cemetery (complete with a giant spider web), a pumpkin patch, and a patio of undead dogs and cats. Then, I took some treats and left them around the backyard, so the pups would have to “find” the treats by sniffing them out.

In no time at all Simon and Rosee were off trying to locate their treats.

They had to fend off some undead animals, navigate the headstones, and sniff under the pumpkins, but it was all worth it for that treat.

Trick-or-Treating definitely went to the dogs this year!

Day 11 of 13 Days of Halloween (2017)

As October 31st looms closer and closer we thought it was time to try a little trick-or-treating.

It’s an essential part of Halloween and one we made sure to celebrate for our own Howl-oween celebration with Simon and Rosee.  Originally, we actually attended a Howl-oween party put on by a (semi)local pet hotel, and it was supposed to include doggie trick-or-treating, a costume contest, and pictures with Cruella de Vil. It seemed like fun and all of the proceeds were donated to an animal shelter or other animal-related cause. Great idea, right? Unfortunately, the event was quite a disappointment. In fact, it was such a disappointing experience, that I don’t think words are quite enough to express just how disappointed I was. So, we ultimately decided to a redo and took Simon and Rosee trick-or-treating in our own spooktacular front yard.

We simply hid some dog treats around our yard and throughout the various Halloween decorations.

Both dogs had fun and got a few extra treats for all of their hard work. Of course, by sniffing out their hidden treats they ended up performing a trick in order to earn their treat!

Even George got in on the trick-or-treating fun and tried to steal some dog treats.

Dust off your Halloween bags and ready the treats because Howl-oween is almost here!
