My Howloween Dress

I thought I'd show y'all da udder side of my Howloween dress today.

It's got pumpkins, black cats, witches, a haunted house, well, all kindsa creepy perfect for October.  We used da candy corn trim again.

Wif candy corn buttons on dis side.  I's just glad dey ain't da real thing, udderwise Finley's daddy would probably try to eat em!  He are a Candy Corn Fiend.  I mean, my momma luvs da candy corns, but Finley's daddy are crazy bout em.

I didn't have too good of a day today.  Da tummy trubbles returned dis morning - I woke my momma up at 6:30 by belly-crawlin up to her face and pantin.  She couldn't figger out why I didn't bark if I needed to go out, but I didn't.  But she did get up and take me out - and it wuz a good thing too!  Dat wuzn't da only time I woke her up, I wuz pantin a lotta da nite.  Momma are pretty sure it wuz cuz I wuz in pain - she turned da A/C down to 75 (she usually keeps it at 78) so it wuzn't dat I wuz hot.  We went back to da vet today - I got some more of da cold laser and electro-accupuncture.  Momma are hopin it are gonna start helpin me.  I still are havin a tuff time standin and walkin.  I did get to spend some time outside today wif my momma - it wuz in da 90s, so she wuz out in her bikini tryin to keep her tan as long as possible, BOL.
