Happy Halloween 2016!

I love Halloween! One of my favorite holidays, 2nd only to Christmas. I'm slowly collecting some pretty cool decorations (seriously need to buy a new, bigger tote for all of them to fit haha). Mostly indoor decor but trying to move outside with a few.

Enter Scooby-Doo! My brother got him for me for my birthday a few years ago and I've wanted to incorporate him for other holidays too. He holds a banner in his mouth that says Happy Birthday, so I wadded that up and put it in a Halloween treat bag, added a Witches hat to cover the Birthday Hat he's wearing and attached the Witch's broom to his tag. With all that weight, he tends to want to reeeallllyyy lean over, but I just wrap weed eater line (what I had handy LMAO) around his neck and then loop over that thing you see on the left hand side of the left pic.

I finally had the opportunity to wear my Scooby-Doo scrubs too! Although, people thought I'd wore them as a costume, when in fact they weren't! I'm a Direct Support Person.....basically I help a disabled woman with day-to-day living. Anyway, still happy I got to wear them AND my glow-in-the-dark spider earrings (especially since I thought I'd lost them.)


Happy Halloween!!

I'll have a post up shortly of our Halloween adventures tonight later on this week. Not exactly sure where we're going or what we're doing but I'm sure we're gonna have a blast. 😁

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
