Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  The boys tried on their "costumes" earlier.  Lightning wears his pumpkin bandana proudly.  Thumper, on the other hand, was certain his was going to cause him great harm.  Before he sat still long enough to get a picture of him, he had to race around the yard, roll around in the grass, and even recruited Lightning into his "kill the bandana" fit.  He even tried to free Lightning from his.

After he wore himself out trying to get away from himself, I FINALLY got a picture of him.  Now he's snoozing and's tough being Thumper.  :)

I only wear this bandana on the special day
when the kids come around for candy.  
It's my favorite.  I take good care of it.

I don't know what this thing is around my neck....

....but I don't like it
and I don't know why she has to take my picture in it.
I tried to get it off but my plan did not work.... 

Lightning, what are these things!?  Let me help you get yours off!

I'll get yours off....then you can help me get mine's got skulls on looks bad!
What do you mean leave yours alone??!

Geez....guess I'll have to do it myself...I finally caught it!
And now to destroy it...hahaha!  

Hope you get lots of treats!  

Thumper and Lightning

Hello Fall!

It's finally cooling off some here in Louisiana, and we have been enjoying the change of weather.  With the change of seasons, the garden is nearing its end, and in honor of Thumper's eggplant obsession, I have this post and one later one to dedicate to his love of the eggplant (or purple chewy ball as I'm sure he sees it).

One day while it was still HOT, I called the dogs in from outside for the evening.  Strangely, Thumper was the first one in.  He ran straight into his crate and plopped down.  I didn't think much of it at first, but then I realized he was chewing on something.  Closer inspection revealed a small eggplant.  He had raided the garden again.  What am I going to do with him?  That poor eggplant bush has tried to produce food all summer, and he keeps taking the fruit of its efforts and playing with it.  So, until next summer gives us more eggplants to laugh about it, here is the next to last eggplant story of the summer, in Thumper's own words....

Eggplant...what eggplant...I don't see an eggplant...I'm just hanging out in the crate being a good dog... 

Maybe it's over there...hurry, go check and see if Lightning has it!

Cool chew toy....I love my purple chewy ball!

Every dog should have a pillow...

I love THIS pillow.  
It's the best to place sleep, better even than my new bed.
I can dream of chasing squirrels, playing fight with Lightning, and catching eggplants!
Every dog should have a pillow.  
It's awesome.
