Happy Halloween everyone! I’ll be helping mom pass out candy to trick-or-treaters tonight, dressed in my costume! Are you all doing anything fun?
Well, last night was a big night for me, to say the least! First, we celebrated Gizmo’s birthday! He turned 1 year old today! Happy Birthday, Gizmo! Gizmo’s mom and dad got a yummy cake in the shape of a bone for him and the rest of us to share…
Gizmo is such a fun pup! He’s full of energy and will play well with any and every dog in the park. He’s not the least bit aggressive, ever. Which I love, of course. Gizmo’s my favorite guy to wrestle with! He even lets me steal his ball, stick, or whatever thing he’s playing with and doesn’t get mad. I can be pretty sneaky. Mom calls me a bully. But I just like claiming everything in the park as mine. That’s my favorite game.
I got a couple pieces and it was yummy!
Gizmo scored the most, since he’s the biggest dog and kept jumping up and stealing pieces, but that was only fair since he’s the Birthday Boy!
It wasn’t long before it was all gone. Then, we were all searching for crumbs!

His mom and dad even brought a cake for all the moms and dads to share! How nice is that?! Mom said it was yummy too.
Then, the not-so-fun stuff happened. Someone had passed out a treat for everybody, and I had a hard time chewing mine. So I carried it away to finish. But when my friend Fergie tried to take it, I got mad and snapped at her. Then she snapped back. And things escalated, so mom had to yell and pull us apart. Thankfully, we’re both little dogs and can’t do much damage. And we both trotted off as if nothing happened. Which was a first for me. In fact, this was the first time I won! Fergie acted a little sheepish and hung around her mom for a bit, till I made her get out and play again.
But even though I won the little tussle, mom found a little blood and teeth marks on my face again. I didn’t at all mind though. Fergie didn’t mean it, and I was back to chasing her around in no time. And mom recently bought invisible bandage spray for dogs, because of all the scrapes I’ve been getting in anyway. She says I’m the most accident prone dog ever.
Then, she proved herself right. 10 or 15 minutes later, she saw me limping along with my front paw up in the air. She about panicked when she thought I had hurt my paw. But I had just accidentally got my front dew claw caught in my rabies tag, hanging from my collar. My nail had gotten wedged and pinched in the tag. And it took two other people to help my mom get it off me, since it hurt when they tried to pull it out. I snapped at them and bit several times, squealing in pain Sorry Mom, Chloe’s mom, and Blake’s dad! But thanks for helping get me free of that! Thankfully, as mom has said before, I have a soft mouth and bite. I didn’t break the skin on mom’s hand. Hope I didn’t hurt Chloe’s mom or Blake’s dad’s hands!
There was no blood or anything. It just cut my dew claw a little bit. Mom will need to file it down later. My nails have all just overgrown so much from my last owner, that it’s taking a while to get the quick to recede enough to get my nails to a decently short length. But again, I was fine and ready to play after that. But mom’s nerves were shot. And it was cold and getting dark, so we left for home soon after.
Is there an award for the most accident prone dog? Because I would be a shoo-in!
