Halloween - Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails

We are participating in Murphy and Stanley's Fryday Fractured Hairy Tails.  The rule is this post needs to have one key phrase in it.



Here is a Story By Hailey.

---------------------------------------------------------

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon of a long weekend. I was having a great time with my cousin Emma when Lady came to the kitchen with a special black box.




As she started pulling costumes out, I knew there was no turning back now. It was Halloween time, and we were going to have to amuse Lady by modelling a bunch of stupid costumes.

We hope you have enjoyed the pictures of the other torture the last week and a half more than we enjoyed posing in them!

Here is our official Halloween picture for 2014



Hmmmm, is Lady trying to say something by her choice over who is angel and who is devil?



Happy Halloween!

Mischief Monday - A Haunted Week

This was a low mischief week. There were no deer to chase, no missing toys, nothing destroyed. There was a little bit of obsessive barking on Friday (when Lady was working at home and on Skype consults) because they were repairing our road. Lady got to use the "hush" command she has been working on and it worked beautifully.

The biggest mischief was on Sunday when after stacking wood for an hour, the humans decided to decorate for Halloween.  Lady would like to say her idea of Halloween and the Man's idea of Halloween are very different. They Lady likes "cute" Halloween and the Man likes make your skin crawl and make you want to pee your pants Halloween. Now that we live in the country and get NO (as in zero) trick-or-treaters, Lady would happily not do anything. However, in spite of this, and in spite of the fact we live on a private road with like 8 houses and only 2 children, they decorated.

Here is what they did:

Precious is Back

After 2 searches for Precious, Phod had resolved that his Precious was gone. He accepted the other chuck it ball as his new Precious.

On Thursday morning, I had the dogs out for their walk around the yard (this is our second walk of the morning after our long walk first thing). On this walk, Lee is on leash and Phod plays chuck as we walk around our property.

I had thrown the ball and Phod was off in the bush hunting it, when Hailey starts to do crazy dog in the leaves. She was running in circles and she is spinning me around. I am laughing and getting very dizzy.  As she stopped spinning, I look down and there is Precious. It must have been under the leaves and when Lee and I were spinning we kicked it up.

Phod had found ball 2 and was heading toward me. I reached down and picked Precious up and say "Phod, look it is Precious."  I wish I had my camera because Phod's eye lit up, he immediately dropped ball 2 and came running over to take his Precious back. He was the happiest boy ever.
