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!
