It's Muthu's first halloween! Sadly, he will be missing out on all of the action; I'll be parking myself outside with candy while hubby and muthu stay inside the house. I don't want to send Muthu into a tizzy of barks every time someone knocks on the door. Not to mention, he loves kids- so, I don't want him to get over-excited and try to approach some poor kid who is scared of dogs/doesn't know how to safely interact with one.

What are your and your doggies' plans for Halloween? Do you generally let your havs say hi to the trick-or-treaters? Do you dress them up? Muthu is not a fan of human clothes so that is not an option for us. He could hardly keep his bowtie on at our wedding . I'd love to see some havs in costume, though!

My husband thinks I'm being overprotective so he plans to bake some dog-friendly treats for halloween to make up for all the fun I'm spoiling. lol

Last year I used a long leash in the house so Molly could not reach the front door. She did have a costume on and I did pick her up and let her see some of the kids as my husband handed out the candy. The little kids loved seeing her in costume as well. This year I am going to try blocking the front door foyer with my expen with the panels open like a large baby gate. Happy Halloween!

Diane and Molly

Ollie loved saying hi to the kids last year. The kids loved him too. He knew a lot of the neighbourhood kids and enjoyed every minute. He sat at the window and cried when they stopped coming, he wanted it to go on all night.

I had Zoe's leash and collar on while my son opened the door and greeted the trick-or-treeters. I held her away from the door so she wouldn't accidentally slip out. I thought about the ex-pen in the foyer idea as well. We don't get too many kids with our long driveway and it went pretty smoothly with no unexpected mishaps. Zoe wasn't sure about it but seemed to know that whatever was going on at the front door was something that we had under control! Luckily we didn't spot Karin flying by
