Halloween is coming soon. Traditionally, this is the time of year that I lurk around the kids Treat bags hoping for a moment or two alone with them…. Mom says that chocolate can be very bad for me – especially dark chocolate – the milk chocolate is not so toxic. I noticed that little kids don’t like dark chocolate so much – it tends to be more a grown up taste – so I look for it more at Christmastime and Valentine’s Day. But oh, the Halloween bags always smell so good! Mom said to make sure I pointed out the hazard this delicious smell poses to dogs and the dangers of chocolate. Mom better watch the bags…’cause I am sure watching the bags.
Well, that wasn’t the real point of this Chronicle. I just got sidetracked by my nose and stomach. That is the problem for us dogs. I guess humans understand.
My point is… the boys are going to be knights for Halloween… and this WAS a great idea. It would have been a very good way to have fun and fill the loot bags I mentioned earlier… BUT!!! Mom saw a dragon costume in my size so now I am involved!!! A dragon!!! A knight would have been so cool! I would have been happy in armor, some leather, a helmet, and a sword in my teeth. Stella would have really dug the look! I am sure the strong look of a brave knight would have compensated for my short stature. But a dragon! With my height I come off looking like an iguana! and worse still -a cute one! Not a bloodthirsty, impressive one! A cute dragon! No fire! No wings! And the knights have swords!…although I heard Mom say that they weren’t to use them on each other… or me. I’ll let you know how it goes. Good thing I still have Stella to look forward to.
