Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

My Mommy is allowing me to post on her blog for Halloween! I'm so excited! Okay, here goes...get ready to be afraid!

Oh, lookie at the scary dead dead doggie...

What? The scary dead doggie is coming back to life!!

Now, don't you think I'm so cute? My Mommy tells me I'm so beautiful. I really am beautiful. I've just come from Ms. Becky's, my groomer, and got my gorgeous locks of hair cut!

Boo!! Did I scare ya?

Okay, then, look at this picture of me. Mommy says this picture is soooo pretty and I just look like an angel. But I said, "Mommy, I want to look scary! I even have on my Halloween bandanna!"

Here's my scary face. What do you think. Are you scared yet?

Ooooo...I ain't afraid of no ghosts!

Now, how's this? I've put my bandanna on my precious little head. Do I look like a mummy? A zombie, a mean scary dog?

I've tried so hard to look scary for Halloween! I've put on my Halloween bandanna, I've put on my scary mean dead dog face and my Halloween headband and none of you were scared! Mommy says, I'm just too precious to be scary. She calls me her little precious Chloe Dawn. Well, that's my name. I guess it's okay not to be she comes with a cookie for me!

One last time...Boo!!

The Scary Chloe Dawn

If my precious scary Chloe Dawn didn't scare you, I would like to try! Ya Ha Ha!!!

Now I would like to tell you a story that my grandfather told and said it was a true story. My grandfather was born in the late 1800's and passed away when I was three, so I don't remember much about him. But my Daddy told me this story many times and now I would like to tell you...

Many years ago, when people traveled (by horse and buggy) there were no motels or even hotels in every town where they could spend the night. It was customary in the deep south to knock on some one's door and ask to stay with them for the night.

That was the case in our story. A man had traveled so long and hard but failed to reach his destination and it was getting dark. He was too tired to go on. He saw a house with the lights (lanterns) burning, knocked on the door and asked if they had a room where he could spend the night? "Of course!", the man who opened the door said. "First room on the right at the top of the stairs."

The weary traveler looked around at all the folks in the parlor and saw quite a few evil looking men playing cards and drinking. He was just so grateful to have a place to rest so he hurried up the stairs to his room.

Now not many places had electric lights at this time, so candles and kerosene lanterns were used. Our traveler was too tired to care if he lit the lantern and so proceeded to get ready for bed. He took off his boots and socks and walked up to the bed. He was walking in something, he felt it, he was sticky! He took out a match, lit it and saw it was BLOOD he'd been stepping in! He followed the trail of blood under the bed and saw the body of a man! He was so terrified!

He knew he would be the next victim of these evil men! They had probably killed this poor guy and took his money!! He thought quickly what to do. He put his socks and boots back on and then he dragged the body out from under the bed and placed the poor fellow on his side, covered him back up and just waited.

Hours had gone by. He was so sleepy, but he couldn't allow himself to doze off! He stayed close against the wall so when the door opened it would hide him from their view.

Sure enough, hours had passed and he heard footsteps creeping up the stairs! He held his breath, so afraid! The mob of men crept into the room and tiptoed over to the bed. They all had knives in their hands - he could see an occasional glimpse of metal. Suddenly they all began stabbing the poor dead fellow! Our traveler escaped from behind the door where he was hiding, ran down the stairs and hopped upon his horse and he was out of there. He lived to tell this tale.

Ya Ha Ha!! Are you scared yet?

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


In the cool of the evening when ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy,

I call you up and ask you if you want to go and meet and see a movie,

First you say no, you've got some plans for the night,

And then you stop, and say, "All right."

Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

You always keep me guessin',

I never seem to know what you are thinkin'.

And if a fella looks at you,

it's for sure your little eye will be a-winkin'.

I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand,

And then you smile, and hold my hand.

Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.


If you decide someday to stop this little game that you are playin',

I'm gonna tell you all what my heart's been a-dyin' to be sayin'.

Just like a ghost, you've been a-hauntin' my dreams,

So I'll propose... on Halloween.

Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.

Spooky, Spooky,Spooky,

Oh-whoa, all right,

I said Spooky!

    Oh! Want to ask you a question. Does you Chloe ever deal with "schnauzer bumps"? My poor Cookie gets them every spring/summer and they drive her bonkers!
