Some of them enjoy it, Cher. I never dressed Tamsen up (although she

did look awfully fetching in my pearls!!) but she was one of the rare ones

who got SUCH a kick out of Halloween... absolutely NO fear at all.



I think I've told the story here before, but Tamsen kissed a little princess

once... made her tiara slip it was soooooo SWEET!!

Awww Val that's so cute :-6

I can just see Halloween at my house now: every *single* time the doorbell rings, Buster will bark like a madman

He even does it when the doorbell rings on a television commercial :rolleyes:

Yes, thanks Val that was a very useful post! I would never have thought about the christmas tree lights wire being in the way of some sharp teeth!
