'Twas a few days before Halloween...

and all through the house...
Things were in readiness, even the mouse...

The pumpkins were lined by the front door with care
In hopes that Trick or Treaters soon would be there ...



Wrinkled witches hands reached sneaky and slow
To grab some of the treats piled up and ready to go...

Scary pumpkin heads watched with diabolical glee
for the first sign of children....ready to flee...


And Pa in his witch hat...


And me with nails painted black...


Had just settled down for TV and a snack...


When what to did appear before our wondering eyes,
But a weiner dog dressed, in a Halloween disguise.


Oh he begged with his eyes and he howled most forlorn,
For Kit-kats, for Dots, for M&M's and candy corn.

To his great disgust we had to refuse
and when he turned around we saw he had a broom!!!!

And showing his fangs he gave us such fright...
when he barked out these words "It's almost Halloween night...


protect all the candy because I'm coming back"
And off he flew on his broom without getting a snack!


We went back in the house and were feeling quite wary.
Because it was almost Halloween and a hungry weiner dog is scary...

...and what we saw by his food dish gave us another great fright...
Ooooooh....there's nothing as scary on an almost Halloween night.



Hey....don't hate me because I'm poetic.

Sigh...

Oh...and...

BOO!!!!!

I love that you peeled back Oskar's lips and helped him look menacing.

Ames said...

Just too freakin funny! What a hoot! That Oskar is so diabolical isn't he? I just didn't know weiners could fly! :) I enjoyed this.
P.S. I love Smartees. They are one of my favorite sugar OD candies! ~Ames

Aging Mommy said...

Love it! That is one very tolerant dog you have there, posing for photos and allowing you to bear his teeth. He might be as distracting as a toddler when you are trying to write but he is a much more willing photographic subject :-)

Cassie said...

What a frighteningly fun way to start a day! Your Oscar just made me giggle...have a grand time handing out treats this year!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Jenny this was such a fun post! Love the knife in the pumpkin...wiener dogs denied candy are like that I hear!

Happy Halloween!

Does your state have a Poet Laureate? You should definitely apply!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Jenny Sweetie...
You are a poet and don't we just know it. I can't wait to see what you give out, to the children who stop by this Halloween night.

Oh what a precious share today, and I love this little wiener dog, broom or not, he is precious. I bet he loves it when all the kids come.

This year we are not celebrating Halloween at our home. We have always in the past, but I am just not able to enjoy it like years before. We are going to the back of the house and quietly watch this one pass us by. Still no voice to speak of, I have officially been diagnosed with Spasmodic Dysphonia. I have what I have left, and am moving forward. I have good days and not so good days, some days more air comes out than others. We are checking into getting the insurance to cover a speaking apparatus for me. We'll see what happens.

I pray you and DH are well. Please know that you are so loved. I have been trying to visit as many blogs as I can when I sit at the computer. My legs have been giving me issues, and after a 10 hour day at work, sometimes I am not able to sit for long. I don't have a laptop. I will try to get by more often sweet friend. Just know that you are so loved and I think of you every day. You are all around me. Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Jo said...

oh my dear Jenny ... you are quite a hoot! I loved all of the effort that went into making such a cute poem ... and sweet little oscar put up with all the dressing up ... what a patient ... hungry, yet patient pup! Thanks for the halloween howl!!!

Judie said...

I am going back to bed!! I thought that knife in the pumpkin was a fancy holder for a ball point pen. Does Oskar help you give out candy?

Bonnie said...

I love love love it!! You are SO clever. I love the black nails and the doggie is sooooo cute!

Boo and hugs to you!
Happy Halloween!

Amy said...

Hmm, having second thoughts about coming trick or treating to your house. Your guard witch dog might scare me off and steal my candy. She (or he?) looks determined enough to pull out all the stops!

Your house is ready, and beautiful. I can't wait until I have had a family for lots of years and thus have lots of decorations for the holidays... though I am mostly excited for the hand made ones from the little ones. :)

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Weiner dogs everywhere are standing up and cheering! Well, maybe howling at the ceiling....

Love the toenails and witch hat and all the pumpkins....and listening to the Mummer's Dance! I have this CD and now, I must go put it into the player....
