The Wild Halloween Rumpus!

Willow and Tess, excited as children can be on Halloween, burst into a spontaneous wild rumpus this afternoon. Poor "Foxy Loxy" took a lot of drool-intensive pummeling!

Willow's just showing off. She thinks making Foxy squeak while upside down gets her extra style points.

Willow bares her fearsome fangs at Tessa (don't be fooled, those fangs are about as dangerous as the plastic glow-in-the-dark ones! But it looks impressive!)

Despite Willow's fearsome fangs tactic, Tess ended up with Foxy in the end (haha... literally, as you can see one of Foxy's legs sticking out from under Tessa's butt!) But then she suspended play to pose prettily for this picture so you could admire her festive Halloween finery. :-)

Josie is in the final two weeks of her recovery from heartworms (a subject for a future post) and couldn't partake in the rumpus. So she was a bit pouty and didn't want to wear her own Halloween bandana or pose for pictures. I had pneumonia during the Halloween I was six and couldn't go trick-or-treating or even hand out candy at the door, so I can empathize with poor Josie! But just so she isn't entirely left out, here's a recent photo of her. Her fur is kind of Halloween-colored, so that's festive enough!

We are all

  • THE WORLD WITHOUT US ~ Alan Weisman

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.
