Let's have a little fun and a take break from our furry bad sadness...

This is me, Mr. Scout all dressed up for last year's (2009) Howl-o-weenie Spook-tacular over at Hansel's place. I am all decked out as that English dude, Sherlock Bones, who I hear was a super-duper sleuth when it came to solving mysterious crimes - and snootering out treats!
Not to be outdone, Miss Freyja (2009) put her best paw forward and dazzled one and all with her Freyja Paw-pins get-up.
Since it's that time of year again when the leaves turn into all sorts of glorious colors up here in Michigan where the hardwoods are plentiful we knew that Hansel would step up to the plate again this year and have another festive offering. We encourage ALL pups and kittens to grab their momma or dadda and go over to the contest bloggy to read what's goin' on. 

Click here to be transported over to the Spook-tacular Contest!
We have so much sadness in our hearts and so many tears on our cheeks for our furry sick FUR-ends that a little levity just might be what the dog-tor ordered. We are sure that those who are precious and close to our hearts as they 'fight the good fight' would approve of living each day to the fullest and bestest because Heaven is only a step away for all of us.
This tree lives across the street from us!
So, get going. Go put your paw on someone's knee or stare at someone with pleading eyes or dance in circles and tell your mamma or dadda that you have things to do and want to celly-brate Howl-o-weenie with Hansel and the crowd at the contest site.

We know how heavy your hearts are -- as are ours -- so we doubly appreciate your suggestion about a bit of levity. Our mom doesn't get us dressed up for Howl-o-Ween -- but we do enjoy looking at everyone else who does.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry
