Greetings, "Furr"ankensteins and Ghouls!
Hope you are all prepping and getting excited for such a fun-filled day for many. We have all our candy in a bowl, our costumes hung up, and our decorations ready!
Bosses still have to work today, so they'll strand me here until their work day is over. Then.....
the doorbell will constantly ring for hours, Bosses say. We'll open the door to strange mailmen in costumes, and give them T-R-E-A-T-S. What?! Now, how can I learn to ring that doorbell?! Will they give ME treats?! Anywho, I'll be dressed in my Howloween best!
As we're headed into such a festive day, I thought I'd give a little reminder to us fluffy friends about things we should do and definitely do not as Halloween happens. I've never experienced the joys and frights of Halloween at a person's house, so here's what I have been told to do to make it the best that I can:
- Stay away from the candy bowl! Yes, it looks tempting. Not only is it a bowl- the bowl also makes wonderful crinkly noises, AND it smells good. But Boss says to leave it alone! They'll make you very sick. And plus- the small mailmen who come ring the door would love it way more than my digestive tract! We'll keep the treat bag close for both myself and for other fluffy friends passing through!
- Monitor the animals in the house. Some animals can handle the constant ringing of doorbells, some cannot. Some love people coming to the door, some are less friendly to random little/big people. If your fluffy friend can handle all the stimuli, awesome! If not, try putting a baby gate near the stairs if you have them, or keeping the entry way clear. Also, if your dog is skittish (I happen to not be), maybe even keeping him/her in a different part of the house or leashed would be better- if the door opens, he/she could bolt. It's probably dark out, and it'll be devastating!
Stay safe out there, everyone!
