What a great party!!!

While our bloggie party at the Tower of London was terrific fun, I also got to attend the annual Spooktacular Party at the Dog Run. It was fantastic! A perfect clear night, pleasant temperatures and loads of scary stuff!
Hmmm, I guess these MilkBones have extra calcium to make them glow in the dark!

There were invisible witches flying over the run on their broomsticks. (Although it looks like we may have hit one with an errant tennis ball!)

And lots of spooky ghosts flew overhead...the spirits of Tennis Balls Past....
There were bats dangling from cobwebs, black ravens along the top of the fence, a huge spider web on the wall and a trail of black rats dancing out of the corner!

Here I am in my dragon costume! I wore it for over FOUR hours and would have kept it on longer but Mommy said I couldn't sleep in it. When I ran for the ball, the wings would fly out and when I wagged my tail, the dragon tail wagged, too. I WON A PRIZE! A gigantic basket filled with treats, toys, balls and a new towel for when I go to the beach. Yipee!!!

My pal Lyle was Peter Pan....

And his brother Butch was Pinocchio (which is kinda funny since he has an extra long nose!) I don't have any pictures of their sister Jesse, a German Shepherd mix, who was a dark angel or their little brother Mickey, a blonde cocker spaniel, who was a policeman. Mickey had a neat little hat that he wore all night, hence winning the prize for THE MOST DURABLE COSTUME!

The prize for BEST LARGE DOG went to my pal Sadie, who was a yellow taxi cab!

Piney's eyes look spooky here -- maybe because he was a Pitbull in Lipstick!!! Really! He had on red lipstick, a dark wig (very briefly), his "Palin/Hasselbeck 2012" button and a price tag on his collar for $150,000! He made Mommy laugh and laugh and laugh!

We also liked Fern's costume! She was a Polar Bear for Obama and won "MOST ORIGINAL." 
There was another winner, Pimm, a golden retriever, who was a Freudian Slip! Very intellectual costumes, mais non?

Penny is one of my gal pals, she's a little Wheaten and looked adorable as a punkin!

Our dog run is next door to a bar called the Brass Monkey. This group was going there - Capt Crunch, the Trix Rabbit, Count Chocula, Frankenberry, some Lucky Charms and of course, a carton of Milk! Mommy thought they should have carried weapons so they could be Cereal Killers!

Speaking of bar, Lyle tried to sneak out for a brew and a jalapeno popper, with a couple of mozarella sticks on the side!

Mommy and I had a wonderful time. It was the best Halloween party ever! On our way home, we walked back through the park to see the Pumpkin Patch. There must have been about 100 Jack-o-Lanterns all a-glow with lots of people admiring them. I got asked to have my photo taken alot! (Though some people thought I was a dinosaur or an alligator...)
Here are some of our favorites - so creative!

This one looked like a haunted house... boooooo!!!!!!!
Are you scared yet? Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and got lots of treats!

Hi Petey,
I loved your dragon suite, you looked so manly and powerful!
You know in the old days, dragon symbolized for the King in some Asia countries.
King Petey, sounds terrific!
I'm so sorry to say this but in the pic that your mom and you posing together, I don't think you're the most photogenic one, ooops, I'll take it back, you and your mom were so equally photogenic!
