Tuesday Randomness...

Aw, Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Freckles the Dog

Urg, I'm still trying to get over all the craziness from last night...we were up super late (well, for a puppy my age) decorating for Halloween. Considering that I was born just a few days before Halloween last year, I don't remember a peep about it, so everything was completely new for me! There were boxes and boxes and boxes of goodies...stuffies galore (that, might I add, I was not allowed to play with...what?)...things to hang...things to put up...sniffs to sniff...it was utter insanity!! I was so overwhelmed that, after an hour or so, I had to put myself on the couch and just watch (and maybe take a nap or two). Whoa!

Of course Domeek took some photos, but the camera ran out of batteries as she was taking the last one, so now you will all have to wait until tomorrow! ;-) Thus the Randomness that follows!

* Speaking about Halloween, I just saw this awesome gallery on the Better Homes and Garden website that is giving away free downloads of doggie breed pumpkin carving stencils! So, if you are an awesome pumpkin carver, I would check all of them out!

Freckles the Dog and BHG Pumpkin Carving Stencil

Just look at the Jack Russell (aka, me) stencil...not too shabby, huh? Domeek couldn't carve her way out of a paper bag, so I'm not going to be getting a portrait anytime soon, but how cool would it be?

* Please meet my newest inspiration!

I don't know his name, but just look at him...whoa! This pup was a competitor in Sunday's Surf City Doggie Surf Competition in Huntington Beach (that's a total mouthful, huh?). There were 48 dogs of various ages and sizes that competed. Have any of you gone on a surf board? A friend of Domeek's who lives in Southern California taught her chocolate lab to ride a board in their swimming pool! Even though these guys are fantastic, I don't think that I could do it, the waves are so scary, just look [shudder]! But I bet that some of you would be awesome (Bert, Finn, Murphy, Stanley...)!!!

* Another Halloween item: Domeek's family always goes to Half Moon Bay (aka, Pumpkin Town USA) to pick out their pumpkins and this year, of course, they are bringing me too! We are going on Sunday, after my class! I'm so excited, I've never been to a farm, let alone a pumpkin farm before! :-D Domeek did a little research and there is apparently a farm that not only allows pups to go to their farm but they LOVE us pups!!! That's right! Their name is Farmer John's Pumpkins and the day we are going they are hosting the Tenth Annual Bernese Mountain Dog Day; last year there were over 110 Bernese dogs there...I can't wait!! :-D

A couple of photos from last year at Pastorino's Farm, but we aren't sure if they are going to allow pups or not, we'll see.

There will be plenty of photos taken that day, I'm sure! ;-)

Ok, have a great day everyone!!!

  1. Sooooooo glad my MOM is not into decorating for Halloween. She does not even do it for Christmas. Well she does hang a stacking up for me but that's it. MOM does carve a pumpkin that looks like me and she does one that looks like my buddy Bert.
    Blessings,

  6. You are so lucky if you get to go to that pumpkin farm. I sure hope they allow doggies. Those Better Homes pumpkin carving stencils are so neat! Unfortunately no Basset Hounds. :(
