Happy Halloween (boo!)

We were going to write about the precautions a service dog or pet dog guardian needs to take on Halloween: dogs afraid of masks, avoiding toxic chocolate treats, etc.  But then we realized that our loyal readers already know about these concerns.

So, while deliberating what to write, we saw photos from the service dog training conducted by Terri Smith.  It sure answers the question as to whether or not service dogs get to have any fun!  As a result, we decided it would be more enjoyable to select some of the photos she took from a recent training.

Then, we went further afield and plucked out some of our favorites from Flickr.

Enjoy, don’t eat too many treats and let us know which of the following photos is your favorite!
