Tag! Tag! Tag! Chase me or let me chase you, it doesn’t matter! It’s all fun to me!
My stuffed animals — all 25 of them, because it’s impossible to choose! I also really like balls and will play fetch forever! (Seriously, I challenge you to keep throwing!)
Dogswell ‘Happy Hips’ Chicken Breast Strips are delicious!
MOST MISCHIEVOUS MOMENT:
It’s more like a mischievous marathon, if I’m being honest. I like to try and throw my stuffed toys behind the couch, down the side of the couch or push them underneath the couch out of reach. Then I have no choice but to cry for Mom to come and help me get them out again! Don’t ask me why… I mean, can you explain your mischief?
When I was three-months-old, Mom tied bells on a string to the front door knob, then whenever nature called, I called Mom by ringing the bell to go out! Everyone was really impressed!
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT FALL:
Easy! My birthday and Christmas will soon be here! Maybe I’ll get a new stuffed animal for my collection?
CATCH PHRASE: I’m just so lovable… and I love everyone!

COSTUMES: There are very few things cuter than seeing a dog dressed up as a pig. However, there are certain things to keep in mind when selecting a costume for your pet. First of all, make sure that they enjoy wearing their costume. Trust me, they’ll let you know if they are unhappy so you shouldn’t force that witch’s hat on your cat. The costume also shouldn’t constrict their movements, sight, or breathing and make sure it’s not too tight either. Be careful there are no loose ends on the costume for them to chew on and make sure they don’t overheat as well. If your pet loves the attention that a costume gives and it fits them perfectly, you can find great costumes and even dress up with your pooch, like this!
SEASONAL COLLARS: Maybe the costume is a bit much for you or your pet, so instead you could always spring for a fun Halloween collar. That way pets can still be seasonally stylish and you still still somewhere to attach their tags so they can be safely returned in case they manage to get loose while trick or treating.
REFLECTIVE GEAR: Another great idea if you want to take your dog out trick-or-treating for a bit is reflective gear. You might think it will ruin their oh-so stylish costume, but safety should always come first and be top priority. On Halloween especially it is important to make sure your pets are as safe as possible and some reflective gear will ensure that they are easily spotted by vehicles as well as any spooky creatures that are afoot. In fact a reflective vest is something that will help keep them safe all year round.

SAFE TREATS: Much like humans, pets love a little tasty treat on Halloween. However, chocolate and sugar is unsafe for our four-legged friends; although you can find treats that would be both safe and delicious for them. From these ‘Growl-o-ween’ cookies or even just some special treats from your local PetSmart, your pets can have a fun night trick-or-treating too!
SAFETY GATES: Perhaps you would rather keep your pet home for the evening to make sure they are extra safe (which is a very good idea, especially if you own any black cats). Make sure they hang out in a safe area, away from any opening and closing door that they could make a run for when scary visitors coming calling. The sight of people dressed up as goblins and demons may upset some pets and cause them to bolt, so a pet safety gate is a good idea as an extra precaution.
