I got to go on a Halloween shopping trip with Mom yesterday. My sisters tell me Paul’s Market is dog friendly and Mom takes her pups there for holiday shopping every year. For me it is my first time and it was a bit overwhelming! So many pumpkins, so little time to pick one!
They say there is a pumpkin shortage this year, and I am happy about it. I can’t imagine the store having even more pumpkins! They are everywhere, even in these huge boxes.
As Mom and I wandered around the exterior, and then the greenhouse, a big Golden Retriever popped out and came over to me. Mom says he works at the greenhouse and is friendly. Luckily, I enjoy meeting dogs, so I was not too worried. I felt really small next to him. He gave me a good sniff over and then left to get back to his work patrolling the greenhouse.
We found the Indian Corn section. Wow, they have a lot of these tiny ears of colored corn. I enjoyed getting my nose into it checking for some interesting field and critter scents.
Mom is a girl, so a Halloween shopping trip wouldn’t be the same if she didn’t find some cute things. She didn’t want to buy anything, so she took some photos of things she liked. If you are creative, you too could make these milk jug decorations.
If you happen to have a small bale of straw, you can make this decoration with a bit of ribbon and a few other crafty items.
Last but not least we found this little cutie. It is a very friendly ghost decoration.
Back outside we found a ton more pumpkins lined up, waiting for a nice home. I kind of like pumpkin in my food, maybe we should buy extra pumpkins to eat?
On the way out, we stopped for a photo next to the infamous Pahl’s truck. I guess all of my sisters have posed with it in the past, even my legendary sister Emma. My turn needed to be special since I am the first boy, so I refused to sit and decided to stand for my photo. Are you taking your pup shopping for pumpkins, or is my mom just a bit odd?
