Ok, I wouldn’t really call it the crypt exactly, but we do have a couple of funny Halloween anecdotes to share.
#1: We don’t get too many trick-or-treaters, but we stuck around Friday night to hand out candy to the two dozen kids who braved our dark, sidewalkess street. Most of it was uneventful, except for the four pre-teen girls who were surprisingly obsessed with home decor. Instead of “trick or treat,” we opened the door to hear “we are in love with everything in your house.” We were a bit caught off guard, so we just smiled, nodded, and forked over some M&Ms. As we closed to the door we could still hear them mumbling about our interior design decisions as they moved on to the next house. Guess we’ll take the compliments where we can get them, even if they are from a group of twelve-year-olds dressed as fairies.
#2: Sherry and I didn’t dress up this year, but Burger sported a glow-in-the-dark skeleton t-shirt so at least one of us answered the door in costume. Unfortunately, he wasn’t a big fan of wearing it and sporadically burst into crazy, wiggling attempts to get it off. Luckily, we caught one such attempt on video. Enjoy:
Hope everyone had a great Halloween. And of course feel free to sound off about any and all goulish tales of your own.
OMG, Burger is so cute! Especially the fervent digging…silly little guy!
Burger is so funny + cute! Thanks for sharing the video!
Burger is hilarious, esp. the digging!!!! So great that you caught that on video.
i love it! hilarious… i have a feeling P&P would have done the same thing… they love to “dig” in soft things!
Burger is hilarious!! Thanks for starting my day off with a good laugh!
:-) I love little dogs….they have the biggest personalities. I think he was just fluffing up the couch pillows…glamming things up for the holiday.
Ha! So funny! Our little yorkie hates any type of clothing we put on him, too. Except when we put it on him he freezes and doesn’t move—it’s too funny!
Looks like he is posessed. A cute kind of possessed. :-)
Oh, the poor little guy.
My aunt and uncle got their front door full of eggs (not rotten, thankfully) because they didn’t answer the door when some teens came trick or treating. I guess this is what happens when some people import a tradition from another country. Nobody has the slightest idea about what is it about.
Glad everyone else was as entertained as we were by our nutty little guy (we’ve since spared him from wearing that shirt, btw).
Erika, maybe our three pups could have a digging party. Or, as Kristy suggested, a fluffing the pillows party. Joi, I love the mental image of your dog freezing in place. Classic.
Gracia, so sorry to hear about the egging at your aunt and uncle’s house. I can imagine how confused they might’ve been by costumed teens knocking on their door demanding candy. Hope clean up wasn’t too troublesome!
Well, they’re repaiting their front door as we speak. I don’t know what was in those eggs, but I tell you soapy warm water and LOTS of elbow grease by my cousin and I didn’t do the trick.
Oh, and Burger is famous now. I’ve shown the video to everyone I know. And, now that Eric can’t read me, it has put me a little tiny step closer to accept his demand of a puppy!
That is too cute! We dressed our little dog, Mo in a bee costume. She didn’t move an inch while in the costume, even when food was offered. She hated it that much. However, she doesn’t mind wearing tshirts. It must be genetic, all Yorkies can tolerate clothing wearing. :)
