A Treat From Rommie!

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Yes, it’s Rommie and I’ve once again hacked Mom’s computer while she was asleep.

Today is my FAVORITE day of the year because it means lots, and lots, and lots of people come visit me.  It fills me with such joy to see babies, toddlers, teens and tweens along with their parents. Some dress as cows, ballerina’s, princesses, vampires, witches, Superman’s, and lots of other costumes.

My First Halloween

Mom and Daddy had me only 17 days when I first learned about Halloween. I was just 3 months old and one night the doorbell rang and when Mom opened it – people were there! (Daddy hid in the basement as little monsters scared him.)  Unfortunately they went away after Mom gave them candy.

Every time I heard the bell, I ran through the house faster than road runner trying to get the door. Mom had me gated off because she did not want me running out the door.

The Neighbors

The boys next door do not go out trick or treating anymore.They stay home and along with their parents, scare people. This year they set up a butcher shop. You do not want to know what is in their hamburger as there are dead people and body parts strewn all over their yard.

I ran over there the other night to have my Halloween portrait taken.  Here I am sticking my head inside the butcher’s shirt.


Eww! He Smells Funny!
Eww! He Smells Funny!

The butcher might look human but is part pig (fake pig of course).


As long as the weather is warm enough, we will stand outside and wait for the onslaught of kiddos.  When they come up to me I just lie down or roll over.  I do not jump on them.  If I did Mom might keep me in the house during trick or treat hours.

So here’s to a safe and fun Halloween to everyone reading this post. And to my golden cousins Ginger & Hurley, may you get an extra helping of Scooby Snacks in your treat bowl.

I leave you with my official Halloween portrait for 2013.

Special thanks and much love to my wonderful neighbors for creating a scary yard display and for just being great people.
