Living in a condo I don't get trick or treaters coming by.  But I pull out the decorations I have (mostly Halloween Stitches), I buy a little candy for myself (at least one bag of candy corn is always included) and this year I got to 'dress up' little Riley for the holiday.  Now I'm not much on costumes and Riley's not much on wearing anything (she's not even that fond of her harness), so a tee shirt was as far as we could go. My cousin sent me two shirts for her, one that was new and one that their dog outgrew.  Riley wasn't thrilled, but was much happier when I took them off and she got a treat.  And speaking of treats, we finally got our Pugs in the Kitchen treats in the mail - and Riley tried the Peanut Butter Pumpkin ones and gives them four slurps! As we continue to watch the east coast try to recover from Hurricane Sandy, please remember those who have lost everything, those who have lost a loved one, those who have lost a job or a business.

Riley, you look very festive In your shirt. Bet those treats were tasty. We love peanut butter and pumpkin.

All paws crossed for all those hurt so badly by Sandy.

So cute! Donald and Daisy had a blast at Gammy and Gampy's for Halloween.
PS. Yes, the people on the east coast definitely need our prayers.

Hi - Sorry, I am late, but just getting caught up on blogs. Riley looks super cute in the shirt.

We never had many kids stop by on Halloween when we lived in the city, either.

Your pal, Pip
