'Twas Halloween Day...

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... So 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 a Halloween night.

This is a re-run from a few years back!  I thought it was funny and wanted to share it again, though.

Sadly, we are missing our weiner dog this year.  Halloween just won't be the same without incessant barking and escape attempts to get candy!

You are a riot, and I loved this! I wonder if your Wiener dog has met up with our Min Pins? They even sort of favor! I can see them romping the fields together, eating lots and lots of treats.

Speaking of which, I received a cute treat when I opened a card recently. I wonder who would have sent u h a thing??? Only the. Shadow knows, and he is not telling.

I am still housebound, but I start riding an exercise bike today. Yikes!

"Such" a thing. Have I said today how this IPAD is maddening?

Karen S. said...

I remembered it right away, but it's so good as I remembered that I had to go through it all. Just as wonderful, and it reminded me of a cool package I once received around autumn from you know who, and it made me feel all good all over. I can't remember what I won the package for, but I remember it all very well! I still use much of it! Except what I ate!

Susan Marlene Kinney said...

I remember when you posted this. I was at the store earlier this year and saw some dog costumes. They made me sad thinking of you and Oskar. Wishing you happy holidays and comfort without your little companion.
