Oh – Halloween Candy, how I have missed you all year…

It is no secret that I love Candy!  And I couldn’t be happier to have an excuse to over buy it, and Halloween gives me that perfect excuse.  Since we don’t have children it’s not like I can pilfer anyone’s loot when they get home from trick or treating, instead I over buy.  This year is no exception.  We usually get around 100-120 kids at our door, and I like to be generous with them too.  So this year I believe I have 2 boxes of 90 candy bars, about 5 bags of 12-20 candy bars, Chiclets (love these), Rockets (another big fave), popping candy, tootsie pops and regular old lollies.  I am so excited for Monday morning so I can see how much candy I have left. 🙂  I am also big on celebrating with the kiddies, I am dressing up as an evil Raggedy Ann doll.  And my sister in law has made our Airedale a pink bunny costume.  Pictures to come after tomorrow evening.

Late Night Stinky Poo…

So…I have a dog, a beautiful Airedale named Oliver, who suffers from protein intolerence and puppy colitis. Makes life interesting at times to say the least. To help treat his condition he has been put on Prednizone, a drug I despise. It makes him HUNGRY! My dog can eat like a champ, and even has a special divided bowl to slow him down. Since he is protein intolerent, he doesn’t get any human food, with the exception of apples and carrots. His intense love of apples is a little ridiculous, and this time of year is very trying. Oliver goes to doggy day care, a wonderful place that he has 10 acres to roam with other dogs and a big fat old apple tree to snack from. The woman who runs the doggy care is wonderful, and she trys everything she can think of to keep him away from the high fibre fruit. Yet, where there is a will, there is a way. Yesterday was no apparently no exception to that rule, and I am counting down the days until all of the apples are gone. Last night, Oliver was totally gassing us out of the house. We took him on a extra long walk with the hopes that he could help him eleviate his discomfort – and our own! It didn’t work. I was politely woken by my lovely little Ollie-bear at 3:30am, and we proceeded to take a 10 minute walk and fill 2 bags. I love, love, love sleep, I am not a person who functions on 4-6 hours (who are those people anyways). I would not wish the late night stinky poo on anyone!
