The Dog of Many Faces
It's WALLOWEEN! I love it. It involves candy, begging, and wearing funny costumes! I've been dressing up all day in some of my favorites.
Stuffy Serial Killer.
Sissy and I played TASMANIAN DEVILS!
Sissy is QUASIMODO! Look at that Hunchback!
And I watched The Exorcist and here I am POSSESSED WALLY.
Look how scared my sissy is! Wait 'til I puke pea soup on her.
My granny (that's granny with an N for "from Nebraska) calls me CUJO. Not because I am a rabid St. Bernard but because What Wally Wants, Wally Gets. So for the rest of the evening I am CUJO. Don't try to take MY candy, kiddies!

My granny sent me two spooooooky stories to share for Walloween. The best part? They are TRUE. Be afraid, apes, be very afraid (four legs gooooooooooood, two legs in trouble!):
1. The Dick Cheney of Dogs:
A man out hunting in Iowa was shot in the leg after a hunting dog stepped on his gun, authorities said.
The accident happened after James Harris, 37, put his gun on the ground to retrieve a fallen pheasant.
One of a pack of hunting dogs following behind stepped on the trigger, and up to 120 birdshot pellets hit Mr Harris in the left calf at short range.
Insp Chris Poole, 50, said the cattle repeatedly butted and stamped on him when he was out walking his dog on the South Downs earlier this month.
The officer, from Brighton, said he was crossing a field along a footpath.
One cow butted him in the back, forcing him to the ground, before the others joined in, he recalled.
Look out naked apes!

I was torn on my Walloween costume on whether to be a werewolf (run around in my usual fur suit howling) or a soccer player (run around with a soccer ball in my mouth.) So, my girl Friday, Ms. Sophie Loveador, suggested I do both and be a werewolf with big balls.
Great idea Soph! So here I am working on my werewolf face...
Are you scared? Gooberstan, if you need someone to scare your new sissy straight, I'm your man.
And here the wolf takes on the ball.
Nothing more terrifying than a werewolf savaging a pink ball.
Balls WERE harmed in the making of this picture.
I vant to bite your balls!
What??? Quit giggling, I'm being menacing.
And yes, that full moon in the background IS my sissy.
Some Dogs Have their Day
My granny sent me this wonderful story about The Fidos, the Oscars for DOGS. And the big winners this year? The CORGIS from The Queen. They were awesome and peed on the hedges in the last scene. Awesome! And, finally, Helen Mirren acknowledge that the Oscar really should have gone to the corgis:
At the world's first international awards for canine film stars, given out at a ceremony at the London Film Festival on Sunday, the four corgis were named as the Best Historical Hounds as well as picking up a Best in the World prize.
"I know one should avoid acting with animals and children, but these little chaps were a pleasure to work with and deserve all the plaudits for their fine performances," Mirren, who is currently filming in the United States, said in a statement.
