Don’t Let Them Spook Poochie

Well, here we are again with another Halloween at our doorsteps. It’s such a fun holiday with lots of “spirit”. Everybody likes to dress up and masquerade around town with their pets and families. Costume contests abound for man and pet alike. Cats are known to stretch their spines out like slinkies and warn everybody of the spooky specters creeping around the corner.

We hope you have a great time, but seriously… don’t let them spook your dog. Dogs can get spooked by strangers and especially people who don’t even look like people. Be sure to keep your black cats inside – don’t want any evil zombies getting them.

Take caution while you’re enjoying your festivities. We wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt on this ghoulish night!
