His tricks, my treats…

Posted on

I love Halloween.  It’s one of my favourite times of the year.  THE favourite if it occurred in the summer but then you know me and hot weather.  Halloween is a time when you can dress up and be goofy.  If I had children they’d probably be hiding by now to keep from being subjected to my creative endeavours.  So once again it’s my dog that has to step (actually kicking and screaming) in.  Lucky for him it’s only in my doodles that he has to be “dressed” up.  Yes I do love Halloween and the fact that there’s candy involved (often chocolate candy) makes this occasion all the better.

When I got back from my trip the first thing I did was hug my dog.  I was so happy to see him I didn’t notice the smell right away.  He’d been sprayed by a skunk.  It wasn’t that strong because the skunk was in the bushes when he attacked but it was enough to warrant a bath.  And like other dogs mine hates to be bathed so I had to give him an at home “spa treatment”…complete with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.  Maybe next time he’ll think twice about chasing skunks…

Innocent abroad…

I haven’t been out of the country for decades and am not up on all the latest safety precautions.

So before my trip I was bombarded with advice from family and friends who travel constantly.  Although well-intentioned, they seemed more like dire warnings.  “Don’t drink the water, watch what you eat, beware of mosquitoes, keep out of the sun” …

But it was a great trip!  I only drank purified & boiled water (yes, I drank hot tea in the Caribbean) and the food was delicious (especially the desserts!).  As for mosquitoes I was their tasty treat, being followed by a cloud of them everywhere I went (like my own little entourage of mosquitoes).  And I stayed out of the sun during the middle of the day on my breezy balcony, reading and drawing.

If it wasn’t for my dog back home I’d still be there…
