Keep dog safe on Hallween

by Michael

To people all out there, please keep your dogs safe on halloween. My friend lost her dog last year on halloween. Her maltese went out to go pee and the next minute she turns around her dog is gone. The animal shelter people call her and finds the dogs bones and coller in a ditch near an abandon house. She think that the satan worshipers in here city sacraficed the dog to the devil. That happened to several other dogs and cats, expecially blck in other differen neighborhoods. That happened to our dear beloved Pug, but thank god not our maltese even thought it was our loved dog, we still were very hurt, so PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOGS SAFE ON HALOWEEN AND NEVER LEAVE THEM OUT OF YOUR EYESIGHT! I know people think that oh that own't happened but you never know. i posted this as one of a response, but I just wanted to let everyone know this.. Thank You very much.


Please bear in mind when reading topics pertaining to health issues, that many of these questions were answered by helpful Maltese owners with no formal education in veterinarian medicine. When in doubt seek a professionals advise.

Thank you so much for letting us know about this. We had no idea. We'll be very careful now and I'll also pass the message on to my parents who have a little dog..

Hi, Michael! A most appropriate and thoughtful post. Thanks for the reminder. Animal mutilation and sacrifice is going on here, also, in Washington State. It is difficult for a kind NORMAL person to understand or relate to these atrocities. Thanks for posting your timely reminder.

Now that winter is coming people are have the anti-freeze refreshed in their cars. Sending the dog out to pee unattended can result in them drinking some of the overflow that's on the street. Anti-freeze tastes like sugar to a dog but can cause kindey failure, so keep you pet under your control at all times which means a leash. Voice control is not enough.

I get lots of little trick-or-treaters in my neighborhood. Last year was my first with my little fur-baby and now I've got two. Split was fine last year, preferring to hang out by my ankles while we "greeted our guests". However, many of the youngsters liked to grab for her (and who wouldn't) and I was always worried if it would become too much for her in all the excitement. Now with two of them I was beginning to wonder if I would have to confine them during all the Halloween excitement.

I've decided to put my adjustable walk-tru baby gate at the front door this year. That way they don't have to be confined in their own house and they can safely participate in the festivities. They can see and be seen but won't have little hands trying to touch these two little white muffs. Safety first.
