This ‘N That Thursday – Halloween Edition

Share Button

First, let’s get the Halloween fun out of the way. We tried and tried to get Jack into a big Jack-in-the-Box, but he kept telling me he’s not a cat and he’s not going to sit in a box. So we had to settle for this picture. Mom needs to work on her photoshop skills, but not too bad.

Happy Halloween!halloween2013

In other SlimDoggy news, we are gearing up for a very busy November. There are so many things going on we’ve had to make a list to keep track of them. First of all, we’re celebrating Senior Pets Month over at We are going to be having special contests and prizes for our senior members during the month. We are even going to change our Featured Dogs slide show to feature our senior members. So, if you’re a senior dog and want to be in our slide show, join up and let us know!

November also has several special days and events so it’s going to be a busy month:

  • National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week (Nov 3rd-9th)
  • Pet Cancer Awareness Month
  • Give Cancer the Paw Blog Hop (co-hosted by Peggy’s Pet Place and Pooch Smooches).
  • The new Walk Your Dog Blog Hop (sponsored by FitDog Friday regulars Boingy Dog, Paws & Pedals & our pal, Gizmo!)
  • National Take a Hike Day (November 17th)peppers103012


Finally, the peppers…yes, the peppers are ready to be harvested. I expect to see the trucks and workers there any day now.




We’re joining up with 2 Brown Dawgs and Ruckus the Eskie for This ‘N That Thursday – Halloween Edition Blog Hop, so be sure to visit our other Hoppers:

    • Well, actually you have to buy photoshop, so I use pixlr which is free, but kind of the same. I haven’t tried Fotor, but saw someone else using it the other day, so have to check it out. Happy Halloween!

    • Excellent! We look forward to the Hop – already planning our post. Jack almost took a bite of one of the peppers the other day, he was seriously considering it and then decided against it. Wise choice.

  10. The peppers look beautiful! Especially to someone living in the northeast where everything is pretty much dead now. 🙂
    And I thought October was busy….November looks to be busy and lots of fun too!

  11. Hey, we think Jack makes a great Jack-in-the-box.

    We didn’t realize there are so many special days in November. We only knew about Blogblast for peace on the 4th.

  12. Thanks so much for participating in TNT! Love Jack’s “costume”. Nicely done. The pepper plants look healthy and ready to harvest. I was thinking green peppers, but they aren’t….lol. I hope to find time to poke around PetsMove this weekend. It is my hope at least. 🙂

  13. Jack is so festive! He wouldn’t sit in a box even with treats? Mr. N is used to sitting on, in, by things so he tolerates it.
