We’re ready for Halloween — are you?

Say “hello” to Brom Bones and his pet rat, Templeton.

Speaking of a reason to change your look: two old favorites on our shelf — Dermal Soothe spray and Oxyfresh Pet Oral Hygiene — have revamped their packaging and labels.

Here they are, so you’ll know what to look for:

For now, here’s a little Halloween jingle:

From pirates to zombies
From witches to ghosts
We like all the costumes
But we love candy THE MOST!

Halloween Haiku Part 2

Jack-o-lanterns glow

Witches cackle and cast spells

We shout Trick or Treat

 

Dogs dressed as devils

Cats wearing pirate costumes

On All Hallow’s Eve

 

Bats flitting about

Now you see them, now you don’t

Vampires in the air

 

I pass an old man

Tired from working all day

Trick – boy in disguise

 

Flashlights pierce the dark

Tiny witch and her papa

Her small hand in his

 

The door creaks open –

A hand reaches out to me

I take the candy

 

 

Leaves crunch under foot-

We grab treats from door to door,

Happy Halloween!

Haiku Preview

My early attempts at American-style haiku.

Leaves stir on branches

Then flutter softly to earth;

My heart full once more

 

Birds gather berries

Ready for the winter snows;

Cold here all too soon

 

Black cats, mirror cracks

Superstition or warning?

I take no chances

 

What can you come up with?  Send me your submissions.  Haiku can follow a 5-7-5 syllable pattern, or it can be even shorter.  Try to say a lot with a little.  ~~  Jen
