Tuesdays Show and Tail . . .

I borrowed this from Sallie at a Full-Time Life.
Thank you!

A BOY AND HIS DOG . . . and Halloween of course. Okay - he wanted to decorate for Halloween all by himself - or should I say he and Disco wanted to decorate the house.

Be sure and join Angela at West Virginia Treasure and add your pet story!

I have to say he did a fabulous job - we see we are still missing some things.

So he's added red spray paint for blood.
More of the little fences. This is getting expensive.

Today we have to get some lights.

And a hanging ghost.

We bought a fogger and liquid fog for Halloween night.

And then will be done - I'll take a finished picture. This has been an expensive project. I had other things but they were 'sweet' things and he didn't want them in his masterpiece!

I have a feeling on Halloween night - Disco is going to be barking his head off!

I got a new follower today, but I can't find out who it is - if you let me know - I'll come to your blog and check it out. Thanks for following.

Some things to think about:

“Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.”
—Erich Seligmann Fromm

"Most of us spend our lives as if we have another one in the bank."
- Ben Irwin

"You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you." - Dale Carnegie

Have a great day.

Your place looks so great! We never do any decorations for Halloween - so lame. I bet when the boys get bigger we'll put in an effort though.


The 1st picture made me laugh :-)

There are few things in life as wonderful as a boy and his dog. I wonder how many books, TV shows and movies have been made on that subject?

I had to double click on the sixth picture, because I spied a rat. And it looked so real! I'm glad to find it was a rubber one! :) I'm over here by way of WV Treasures!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Sandie he did such a great job. Tell him I said it looks 'spooky'!!

Cheri said...

Your GS sure does love that pup.

Melanie said...

Everything looks very spooky!!
I'm glad your GS and Disco are getting along so well!
Yes, Disco will probably bark his head off on Halloween! :)

Walking on Sunshine... said...

What a great job he did!

Ginny said...

WELL, I thought those three hanging people on the side of the barn were REAL men!!! Yikes! Then I clicked and saw they were just stuffed! Boy, you go all out for Halloween! Lots of houses around here do it up really big, as well! That fog machine will scare the life out of the tots!!! One house here has an inflatable coffin, and it keeps opening and closing with Dracula coming out.

Angela said...

Andy and Disco did a great job decorating your yard for Halloween! It looks all spooky ooky! Love it! It is funny to see how much Andy carries that Disco around! lol He is just the perfect size to do that. My dogs are just too heavy to do that.

Tuesdays' Show & Tail!

Oh my gosh, you guys really made your entrance terrifying this year!
Hee hee, bet Andy and Disco are lovin' every moment of the season.
What fun for them both, they look inseperable!

A Hopeful Heart said...

Our family has never celebrated Halloween, so, of course, I don't decorate for it. (My kids have never gone trick or treating.) I'm glad, though, that your sweet grandson is enjoying himself with the decorations.

Hope you're having a lovely day.


Knitty said...

My sons loved spooky stuff at that age too. After they became adults, I moved back into the 'cute' category of decorations but I'm sure with a grandson now, the time for eerie decor will happily return.

Linda O'Connell said...

Oh the memories you are creating for your wonderful grandson. These are the things that mean the most on life.

Jules said...

What a fantastic job of decorating for Halloween! Looking forward to seeing the final product.

FairfieldHouse said...

What a great job the little man and Disco did! I think watching a boy and a dog interact is an event in itself; the stuff that feeds the soul.


The Quintessential Magpie said...

Awwww... love looking at the pics of your grandson and Disco. How cute! He sure loves his dog and vice versa!

Fun decorations, too!


Sheila :-)

Velvet Over Steel said...

He did an amazing job! It looks so scary and by far the coolest house on your block I'm sure! :-) I miss my boys decorating our house like that! Those were such fun holidays! Thank so sharing with us!!


Joycee said...

SPOOKY! Kids love Halloween...I celebrate all month long with my favorite candy!

Mevely317 said...

Say, when Andy gets through ... would you send him my way? :)

It's been ages since I've decorated for Halloween -- in fact, since my childhood, when the local merchants used to let kids come "soap" their storefronts.

A 2 Z said...

Hi Chatty,

Just read all your other comments. They said it all...except thanks for sharing your sweet grandson and his lovable dog. The decorations are really great. Someone is talented...


Susan said...

Wow, Sandie. You and GS did an awesome job decorating outside the house. And red blood too? Yikes. I'd like to go there Halloween night.

We usually play werewolf howling music in the windows. It's scary as geewillikers! ha!

Thanks for visiting my blog and always commenting. You are a doll.

Take care, Sandie. Susan

That corgi :) said...

GS did a great job, Sandie!! and of course Disco was a big help I am sure!! I noticed lots of people have decorated around us, some with orange lights; looks cool with them!

worst thing with Koda and Halloween is when the door bell rings, he thinks he should get a treat because at one time Federal Express would deliver my pay checks and the guy always had a dog treat for Koda. I put my checks on direct deposit but everytime the door bell rings, Koda thinks he is getting a treat (so what do I do? after I get the door and take care of business there, I go and give him a treat....)


Journeyin' Lady... said...

Your Blog looks SO fun and positive! Keep up the good work, oops not work, just fun!

Crystal Mary said...

You put a lot of work into it. Have a great time. Hugs CML

Pat MacKenzie said...

GS has done a wonderful job of decorating.

gloria said...

Hi Sandie. Thanks for stopping by! We're actually in the Columbus area (Fort Benning). But Atlanta's not that far away and as soon as Jess can get to Atlanta, I need a Mabry-fix. Jess was my college roommate and a good friend. We haven't seen each other since they left WA a few years ago.

Diana said...

I love the borrowed pic from Sallie!!!

Dogmom Diva said...

Sandie, place looks great, GS and Disco did a bang up job..I can see the love that boy has for his dog..its a good thing.


ocmist said...

Andy did a WONDERFUL job of decorating! He looks so happy holding Disco. So sweet of you to let his imagination carry him so far! Bet it's something he remembers a LONG time! :)
