trick or treat

I want to wish everyone a Happy Howloween!!!! This is my first one ever, and I'm still learning about what happens during this holiday. So far it seems like business as usual, except for the fact that we had some weird orange vegetables show up on the porch earlier this week.

Last night I helped out with the "pumpkin carving". Everyone took turns scooping and carving, but nobody would let me lick the pumpkin guts. I kept an eye on the gourds and provided the artistic direction while my minions...er, the humans, did ALL the work:

It may be a little last-minute (isn't it always the way!), but I finally picked out my Howloween costume:

Have a safe night everyone!
Tito the Boston Scarier

UPDATED to tell you that my dreams of becoming a skunk for Howloween were not realized. But I did get dressed for the occasion thanks to my dog walker, Janelle.

Janelle left me a yummy bag of treats and this festive pumpkin bandana when she visited me on Wednesday. Here, allow me to model it.....

Howloween was pretty good. I was a little disappointed that we only had 20 trick or treaters come to the door, but I was still sure to greet them all. Maybe next year!

red ball

Mom brought me home a special treat today...a new red tennis ball! Her friend Margaret from work gave it to her to pass on to me. Aren't I soooo lucky!? I love playing with my new ball. No other pup in the neighborhood has one like it!

Could it be....pour moi!?

Attaaaaack! They don't call me the ball assassin for nuthin'. Now if only I could get my mouth around it.

Thank you, Margaret!

the big crunch

I know that at 6-months I'm technically a teenager already, but I tell ya...there is still so much to see and learn in this world! A couple of weeks ago, right around the time of the move, my mom and dad let me go play with my grandparents while they loaded all their toys in the truck. Now, that is normally more fun than a basket full of stuffed Kong toys, but this time was especially fun. We went to a place called the apple orchard!

This is a picture of me and grandma checking out the farm equipment. It sure was big and scary looking. I stayed pretty close to grandma. You know...just in case.

After a long afternoon of picking I was ready to enjoy the bounty of the harvest. Wait...ACK - these apples are sour! I think I prefer granny smith.

I got to go for a hay ride at the farm. How fun! Normally I have to go in my crate when I travel, but not this time. I got to feel the wind in my fur! Mom says that by the look on that lady's face, I must have done "a classic Tito" and passed gas. Hey.....I'm sensitive about my toots.

I love the country air! Finally a chance to sit in the sun and chew. My favourite!

on the move

A couple weeks ago my parents started putting all their toys in boxes. Every single thing in the loft got put away and some things got wrapped up in newspaper. I liked having all the boxes around because they're really good for chewing, and I also really liked chasing newspaper balls around. I'm pretty good at helping them put their toys in boxes...

But before I knew it, I heard that we were moving away and I wouldn't get to go for walks with my favourite person in the world - Kate, from Unleashed in the City. Kate has been visiting me and playing with me since I was a new puppy. She keeps me so active and helps me maintain my busy social life when my parents are at work. She takes me for hikes, and lets me play with balls, and she even helped teach me my manners. I was so sad to say goodbye to Kate, and I think she was a little sad too. I got Kate a $50 gift card from the LCBO so she can get a nice bottle of wine, and then one day she brought a gift home to me! Wow - I was so excited! I never had an actual wrapped gift before. Usually I just get gifts right out of the shopping bag!

Oh....what's this!? Smells good....

I will unwrap it. Hey, Tissue Paper, you're comin' with me!

Hey! This is the biggest tennis ball EVA! This guy looks kinda like me...

I knew there were cookies in here! Cool...fancy dog cookies from Bark & Fitz. This one looks like a hot dog. Hot diggity!

Thanks Kate! You're the best! I tell all my friends about how great you & the team at Unleashed are!

On moving day I tried to help out. Thanks to my agility classes I had no problem running up the ramp to the truck.
Where to boys??...
