What does Halloween mean to me, a Scottie lady of mature years?
Well, first of all it DOESN'T mean monsters at the door. Nope! Not gonna tolerate that. They say they come for candy, but you can bet they have a more nefarious scheme in mind, and as long as I'm on guard duty at the front door, they shall not enter!
As for me, I always don my nurse's outfit as that was my original Halloween costume many years back. Hey, how many of you can still get into a outfit from 9 years ago? Huh? And, I mean without sucking it in. No, I am my same svelte self. So, last night, in costume, I made an appearance at the Fall Festival hosted by my friends at the Cancer Center here in town. I'm their official therapy dog so, of course, I wanted to show my support.
There were lots of kids there - even the smallest was taller than me. Sigh! But I hobnobbed with the crowd, showed off my nurse's outfit, and watched a magician and a clown. Clearly I over-shadowed these paltry entertainers so after a while we headed home with the happy sounds of my many admirers ringing in my ears. I was glad to hit the sofa for a much needed nap. What, you thought being famous and in constant demand was easy? Au contraire.
Monday, I head back to the Cancer Center for my regular visit. Think I'll bring them some of my Scottie cookies.
Oh, before I forget, Mom got Tarq and me a really cool game. Now, as you , and it involves food. What's not to like. Your pups might enjoy it too. It's called Mind Games and you can find it on amazon.com. Just search in the pet section under interactive toys.
