Halloween Recap II – Takin’ it to the Streets!

So, once Sid and Timothy had done their part to repair Shark / Penguin relations…

…it was time to take their halloween hoodies to the streets!

Now, I don’t know how familiar you are with the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, but it’s known as one of the kid-friendliest neighborhoods in the five boroughs of New York City.  Kids run this ‘hood.  So, at 3:30 in the afternoon, the streets were already PACKED with sugared-up robots, pirates and cowgirls.

Due to a number of considerations – such as Sid’s maniacal tendency to assume that EVERYTHING is a treat for HIM, the short stature of children and the correspondingly low height at which their tiny arms swing their bulging candy buckets, and my neuroses – we made a decision to avoid the ACTUAL trick-or-treaters on the main avenues and stick to some lesser-traveled streets and alleyways.  So, beyond the fact that Timothy is dressed as a penguin with a bowtie, and Sid is dressed as a shark, the photos from our adventure are not very halloweenie, and mostly involve a lot of walking.

Thanks to Saturday’s totally random pre-Halloween snowstorm, we were able to get a photo of Timothy Penguin in her native arctic habitat:

And although Sid didn’t get any candy, his treat was that we allowed him to spend some extra time sniffing, chewing, and spitting out the tiny leaves that he’s been OBSESSED with ever since the fall season began:

Lucky for us, Sid prefers leaf-foraging to pixie stix.  By the time we returned home we had one tired, happy shark-pug.

    Wow! What fun! I did not get to go out Trick or Treating this year (long story) but I did run to the babygate everytime the door bell rang and bark out HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all the adorbs He-men, Smurfs, Witches, Spidermen, and Princesses.
    Love Noodles

    Hi Sid! As you know, I like a good leaf or two or three myself. Hey, if the ‘rents aren’t giving candy, what else are we to eat?!? Love the pic of Miss Timothy the Penguin on the snow drift and the last shot where both of your hoods are side by side! I’m so glad you had a great Halloween!
    Love,
    Payton

    Hi Sid,
    Great trick & treating pictures. Like you, I too love the leaves. When devouring the leaves, Mom says I’m getting my fiber.

    Hugs,

    Hello from CA! Love the Halloween photos and the costumes…where can I get one of those hoodies bc the shark would be great given my location :) Also…just wondering if I missed an announcement somewhere…Are Sid and Timothy “living together” as a couple? Also, be on the lookout for my sister Stella McMuffin who will be relocating to Greepoint, BK from East London on Nov. 30th!

    Sid! You and Timothy are such a perfect little couple. I also love the leaves, especially when the wind blows them and I get to chase them. My human loves it too, because she just gets to sit there while I run around like a maniac trying to keep things at the park in order.

    My human is visiting her friend and her pug Lola aka “Bean” in Park Slope this weekend. Maybe she will get to see you both in the fur, frolicking around in all of your cuteness!!
