This was Reilly's second Halloween with us, so by this time he's got it down. I did, this year, deign to put a Halloween bandanna on him - for safety of course. It's impossible to see him in the dark. It was cute, orange with little reflective doggy paws on it. Reilly didn't seem to mind.
He and I went trick or treating with the neighbor's kids and a friend and her daughter and I have to say he had a great time. We walked all over the neighborhood, greeting other children and making sure the ones with us stayed safe.
When we got back to the house, we joined the party in the front yard - we had invited everyone over to hang out during the trick or treat time. This turns out to be a great strategy, if you have dogs. There is no ringing of the doorbell which sets off the hound from hell, and it's much more pleasant to hand out candy without having to scream "SHUT UP" all the while.
Reilly was exhausted in the end - a full day of daycare and then the trick or treating was just too much for him to take.
Here's a picture of him pre trick or treating.
