Happy Hallowiener!

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers and Trick-or-Treators! We hope you are having a great Hallowiener! We are making sure we have enough candy for the Trick-or-Treators who will visit tonight. Mom caught my little brother Wally sneaking of piece of Candy Corn in his mouth. Mom reminded us the candy was for the people who ring our doorbell and say, "Trick-or-Treat!"

We have received lots of photos and cards from our friends. We wanted to show you two! The first photo is of our friend, Cleo. Cleo lives in Evansville with her mom, Ms. Diane. If you are a regular follower of our diary, you are no stranger to Cleo. Cleo goes into the Nursing Homes and makes the residents smile and laugh! For the Halloween Party this year, Cleo dressed up as, well, a hotdog! It really wasn't a big stretch at all since Cleo is a hotdog! We saw Cleo last week when we spoke at a Foster Dinner in Evansville. Cleo didn't have her costume on which made it a bit easier for her to run and play - and run and play we did! In fact, we ran and played so much that my siblings and I had to go to the Time-Out Dog House, but I won't bore you with those deTAILS!

The next photo is of our good friend, Abby. Abby is a Corgi and lives in Bowling Green, KY with her family, The Marcums. We met Abby's mom last year. She is the librarian at Natcher Elementary. Ms. Marcum sent me this picture. She said Abby put on her hotdog costume early this morning and was looking out the window hoping Chloe and I would be Trick-or-Treating. We have asked Mom if we can go to Abby's house tonight. Mom said Bowling Green is a bit too far to go Trick-or-Treating. Abby - save a rawhide for us just in case we make it!

Cleo's hotdog looks like plain wiener with mustard. Abby's hotdog looks like it's a loaded frankfurter - complete with mustard, catsup, and even relish! WOW!

One of our favorite Halloween traditions is reading the book The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey. It's the story of a wiener dog named Oscar. It's scary and funny! If you haven't read it, check it out. Years ago, Dr. Rhonda Caudill, a Vet in Paducah who took care of me when I had back trouble sent us the book. It's our favorite.

Everyone has been asking what we are going to be for Halloween. I think we have finally narrowed it down:

Chloe is going to be the same thing she is every year - a BalleWiener.

Frannie is going to wear a grass skirt and be a HulaWiener.

Wally is dressing up like a cow. He is going to be an All-Beef Wiener.

In honor of the World Series, I am dressing up as a Baseball Player. I am going to be a Ballpark Frank!

We hope everyone enjoys the day and is SAFE! Remember to have an adult with you, only visit the houses of the people you know, don't go out after dark, and don't eat too much candy!!! Oh, and don't forget to Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
