We probably won't dress Louise in a costume for Halloween this year, not because we object to such things, but just because it hasn't been as big a deal for us. I guess the novelty of dressing the dog up has worn off a bit, at least for me. The best I could do was to grab a picture with the flash on, getting the freaky colours in her eyes, which we see here. For the record, her right eye is the one that is closest to her natural colour.
I'm not really sure quite what to expect this Halloween either. We haven't been in our current place long enough to get a feel for how many neighborhood kids to expect, if any. I guess that is one of the things about living in a condo, that there are few, if any visitors on kid-centric holidays like this one. I'm sure we will see the costumes as I take Louise out for her nightly stroll, but then again, by the time we get going it's possible that most of the kids have already returned home for the night. It's just not the same holiday that I remember as a child, I guess.
This next photo I grabbed while out on our walk this evening. One of the local restaurants, Delilah's, has a light that casts the name of the place on the sidewalk in front of it. Louise took pause just long enough to watch the image rotate past her and then gave up on it.
Finally, a photo of Louise as she chased a squirrel into a tree. Normally she doesn't really bother too much with squirrels, but these past couple weeks they have been much more active, what with storing food for the winter and all. This is something Louise has started to pay attention to, so now when a squirrel runs out of the way, she often gives chase. Luckily she also gives up easily, so we don't have to worry too much about her actually catching one (and any associated diseases or fleas).
