BOO to You

Hi Everybody,
Today is Halloween or what we call BOO Day. We don't really mind the day much because we don't have to dress up and we get yummy treats. We don't get kids ringing our doorbell because we live at the end of the street and nobody comes down here. Mom and Dad are glad because you know we'd have to bark really loud to scare away those goblins. 
One nice thing about Boo Day that we really look forward to each year is the visit of Mr Punkman. Sure enough he showed up a couple days ago. Here's Dad helping him put on his makeup. Last year Mr Punkman had a horrible accident. The days were really hot and he fainted and turned super ugly. Mom threw him in the poop bucket. That's how bad he looked.
This year Dad said Mr Punkman would just wear makeup and not have any piercings so that he stayed healthy. Tomorrow Dad will cut him open and scoop out his guts for us to eat. Pumpkin is good for our tummies but we don't like the kind that comes in a can. We like it fresh, so while Dad does surgery on Mr Punkman, we'll stay close by and enjoy big juicy chunks. Mom will even toast the seeds for us and Dad to eat. Mom doesn't like pumpkin. She says she'll stick with chocolate.
Mom and Dad got a Boo Day present from our friends at Chewy and can you believe there were no doggie treats, just peep treats.
Mom takes lots of pictures of us for our blog so I told her I wanted to post a picture of her today. She did a self portrait and let me post it. Here it is. I'm not sure just how accurate it is, but she and Dad both liked it. 
Peeps can sure be strange at times. Have a great Boo Day and stay safe.
 Your pal,

Chewy sent us the same surprise gift. They are such a wonderful company! We love your mom's self portrait and your dad's Mr Punkman! Happy Halloween!

We've never had pumpkin. SHE eats it though all the time, and makes soup and stuff.

Halloween isn't really celebrated in Oz, though with the influence of television and movies, there are a few who try. In our area, the local scouts have people sign up as houses that give out treats, then they make maps. So we see groups of kids with their parents walking down the street. We were not even allowed to BARK at them!

That Mr. Punkman sure looks familiar to us.

Dude! Nice horns! We actually had one group of Trick-or-Treaters last night: I gave each of them 3 full sized candy bars. They were delighted.
