Dog House Blog, Pumpkin Panic!

Molly The  Wally does Frankenweenie.

Pumpkin Panic and Funny Scary Pumpkin Carvings for Halloween. 

Shock horror, farmers are saying  there will be a shortage of pumpkins this Halloween as the bad summer weather meant crops are down by 20 per cent.  Much of the remaining crop is still green and growers are now racing against time to get the harvest finished before the frost claims what remains. The harvest is now 10 days behind schedule. So quickly dash out and grab a few and in the meanwhile let’s take a look at what you can do with your pumpkins this year!

Pumpkins are like people. No two are exactly alike and not one of them is perfect! One for all you gardeners out there!

As Dirty Harry would say, “Come on Pumpkin make my day.”

Oh my Gourd what did I eat last night?

I say didn’t we have two pumpkins?

I said treat not trick!

Pumpkin bitten by Norman!

Three little piggies or is it pumpkin stuffed with pork bellies?

Eco-friendly squirrel trap! Help I’m being eaten!

Do or pie!

Mummy help!

Well it is trick or tweet!

Mrs Jones was proud of her pumpkin patch, so she was real disappointed when some of the the local kids were taking them to make Jack-o-Lanterns.
One evening while Mrs Jones was soaking in the bath, the answer to the pumpkin thefts came to her.  After supper she went out and put up a sign: 
Beware, one of these pumpkins is coated with a special colourless rat poison!
A day or two later when Mrs Jones checked out her pumpkin patch she was pleased to see that no more had been stolen. Then she saw a second sign next to hers which said, NOW THERE ARE TWO!

With Halloween coming up we have opened the Spooky Gallery (last tab on the right). To join just pop over to Mollie & Alfie leave a comment asking to be Spookified and they will showcase the Phantom Booth each day. We will then post them on our Spooky Gallery (last tab on the right) which will be updated daily with the newest entries first. Let’s get in the mood for Halloween pups and kits! 

Who is in the gallery today?
