Dogs and Halloween | Poochie-Pets

It’s about to be a spook-filled night of darling, clever, cute and scary costume-clad kids ringing your doorbell.

Inside an “Outside the Box” Moment Our family dog Wilson (aka “Fish Sticks” due to his reoccurring, uncanny fish-like smell we call Eau De Wilson), offered up a Live in Dog Years moment recently.
