Halloween 2014

Halloween used to be one of Ray's favorite holidays. All those kids coming to the door to see him (at least that's what he thought) used to get him really excited. Now that he's older and wiser, Ray knows that they are all coming just to get candy and he's a bit put out. He stays curled in his chair and only gets up to greet those that he knows. It's kinda sad, really. Ray has grown jaded.
Even so, Ray still does enjoy carving pumpkins. This year, for the first time, he even tried a piece to see if maybe it was edible. Apparently, it wasn't.
Because I got caught up in totally redesigning my Halloween display this year, I completely forgot about a costume for Ray. He was off the hook until I realized that I needed a few more fake candles to put in the lanterns (so that there are no tragic accidents involving combustible trick-or-treaters). A quick trip to the store solved my candle problem and, as a bonus, solved the costume problem.
Ray was as thrilled as could be. He donned his headgear and we walked around the block to visit someone that we knew would have dog treats. Unfortunately, she wasn't home.

What do you mean she's not home?

grumble grumble grumble

Are you sure this is ripe?
Here, let me knock on it for you. Let's see if it sounds hollow.
I think it sounds ok... 

A new use for the cone of shame.
A decoration that strikes terror into the hearts of dogs everywhere. 


  1. That poor dog. He puts up with so much.

    1. He does, doesn't he. Poor Ray. bwahahahahahahahahahaha

  2. Last picture - whaaaaaaattt??? Poor Ray :)

  3. When I saw Ray's Halloween costume I laughed and laughed. It matched his beautiful coat. Both of my children "Romeo and Juliet" started yelling at the first sight of the trick-n-treaters. Now that candy is still in the bowl. Anyone wanting Butterfingers?
