Wicket has been back home since mid August and has been doing wonderfully! We are still gradually introducing exercise to him, even though he does get to play full out at Puppy Daycare, he doesn’t get to run in a large open area just yet. I have taken him to our Little Dog Meetup group at a dog park a couple of times but he has been kept on lead so he can’t run. We don’t need a re-occurrence of his back injury, so it’s slow and steady.
But… this does not mean I cannot torture him with Halloween dressup!! Yes, I want to dress him as a Flying Monkey for Halloween and have yet to make the costume. I’m still contemplating the colors I want to use, will probably go with the original blue and red even though I dislike that color combo. While shopping yesterday at Walmart, ugh, I stopped in the pet section… actually the pet section stopped me, due to having an endcap of Halloween Pet sweaters and whatnots. I had to buy two sweaters, which I’ve been meaning to do since the weather is turning cold.
I let Wicket model his own sweaters and here is the little darling along with a picture of the endcap at Walmart…
PumpkinRot has done it again. If I could just pluck out his imagination and meld it with my own… Frightfulish things would occur, at least in my own realm. They are already occurring within his own….
You can find the man of Rot and his darling of a wife, Bean at the following locations:
Yesterday I went out on a photo shoot with Rebecca Belcher to Gateway to Darkness Haunted Attraction. For those of you that don’t know, GtD is the only Pro Haunt in Alaska and they hold the bar very high compared to all of the Non-Profit Haunts we have. Michelle and Sam Marsh are the owners and both are active within the haunt.
The main theme of the shoot was ghostly haunted with the models wearing mainly whites and grays. Michelle worked the airbrush for whiting out faces while a couple of her makeup artists did the detail work. Sorry, I didn’t catch their names.
There were four photographers total, Rebecca Belcher, Sandee Rice, Mark Laroza and John, that I need to verify the last name of, and one videographer Kyle Murphy that is Som Ep’Laceak Media. The number of models numbered somewhere in the 12-15 range. Most were professional models both female and male. A few males, that had come with female models, were persuaded to join in the on the fun. Who can say no to dressing up before Halloween??!!
We had roughly four hours of shooting time, which seemed to fly by once everyone got into the flow of things. All in all it was really fun running around in the dark, the hard part was leaving and having to return to the bright reality of the outside world.
I’m going to post a few pictures for now, when the photographers make them available I will provide more and update the names of the male photographers.
