Happy Halloween 2012!

Happy Halloween!  Tonight was a great night for our little family!  Cooper and June had a blast helping Ben and me hand out candy to the trick or treaters.  Cooper was Eeyore and Junie was Minnie Mouse! 

Cooper was our greeter.  He is a very good boy off the leash and listens to voice commands.  He had an absolute blast greeting the kids as they walked up.  He would walk out to them and let them pet him.  He even sneaked in a kiss or two!  

June hung out on her leash with me.  She was a little nervous with all the commotion, but overall she was a happy girl.  She loved being able to sniff the trick or treaters and say hi.  It was good for her to get out and be social. 

It was great to see the kids interact with the dogs!  (I would have taken pictures, but I didn't want any of the parents to get weirded out.)  Some of the kids were a little apprehensive at first, especially since Coop is a big boy, but we held him and almost all of them wanted to pet Cooper and June even if they were a little scared at first.  Dogs have such a great effect on others!


My absolute favorite interaction between the dogs and trick or treaters was with a brother and sister.  They were both dressed up as Spiderman, but the girl was lady Spiderman.  They were super cute.  They were so excited to see the dogs that they forgot about the candy at first.  The brother asked what Cooper's name was and if he could pet him.  Oh of course!  He even asked for kisses!  Adorable!  Then his little sister wanted to pet Cooper and June.  The brother must not have seen June at first because he came running back when he saw his sister petting her.  "Oh I didn't see her!  What is her name?"  He was too cute!  Then both the kids grabbed their candy and ran back to their mom.  They yelled thank you as they went followed by, "Bye, Cooper! Bye, June!"  Oh these kids were after my own heart....they cared more about the dogs than the candy!  Absolutely adorable!

I hope you all had a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Aw... that is so sweet! And, I love the costumes too. I think it's great to see kids interacting with dogs.

    When Boomer and Dottie get to do that it just makes their whole day!

    1. Thank you, Emily! It absolutley melts my heart when I see kids interacting with dogs! I can't help but think about these kids down the road adopting and loving dogs because of great experiences they had with dogs as children. It is the best!

      Boomer and Dottie are adorable! I saw their photos on your blog. What sweeties!

  2. Awe! Everyone is so adorable! We didn't dress up this year, we were honestly afraid we might get hit by the storm, but at least my big dog Bender got to run around in a Safety Vest. I love love love the Eeyore costume!

    1. Thank you, Omi! We were very fortunate here in NC that the storm passed us by for the most part. Just some rain, so it was back to normal for Halloween. I thoroughly love that Bender has a safety vest though! That is awesome! And Eeyore was my favorite, too. It fit Coop's gentle personality perfectly!
