Halloween is coming!
Spooky fabrics are being pulled out and used for this and that.
(A couple of bandanas in this case.)
Costumes being dreamed up and pieced together.
I. Can't. WAIT! to finish Minna's and make her wear it for a week straight.
Everyone is trying to scare me.
That's an all year thing really,
but now there are scary props all over the place.
Pumpkin buckets and Halloween packages laying around.
Bats and ghosts still hanging.
My favorite garland yet.
The pumpkin treats!
It was this recipe.
Freakish occurrence #1
The chickens all of a sudden think they can come inside.
When I have the door open, they walk in.
It's kind of a dream come true for me.
But kinda not.
I am cleaning up enough animal droppings
in the house with pups around, ya know what I mean?
Freakish occurrence #2
My house is a hospital.
Minna is sick. (Still not sure with what, exactly.)
Roo was just sick.
And all of Minna's imaginary friends
and cute little babies and creatures are sick too.
A few more days and everyone will be discharged hopefully.
Ester almost needed to go to the hospital too.
(That's her sweet, trouble maker face on the right.)
She found a dead rat and was eating it. (BARF!)
It gets worse...
She started choking on it!
There was a moment when I was holding her down
trying to grasp the flopping rat tail,
that I thought of my friend
who had to do mouth-to-mouth on his Jack Russell.
Was I prepared to do that?
I don't know.
Glad I didn't have to decide.
I was able to yank the thing out and unblock her airway. (ACK!)
During the panic, I threw it over my shoulder.
She was obviously fine because
she promptly ran to the carcass
and swallowed the yucky thing whole.
It went down easy the second try I guess.
I hope tomorrow is less freaky.
Have a nice night!
