Hello. This is your sane doggie host Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens here for a TDB update on the proceedings of this Halloween night. My associate Chester L. W. Stephens was too fat to fit in the Santa costume, and thought the hot dog costume was a squeaky toy. Therefore I was obliged to be the hot dog once again. He also became too perturbed when scary trick-or-treaters came to our door, so we were also obliged to be stuck up in the office with one of our humans while the others managed candy hand-out duty.
As you can see, he's too rotund to dress up as Santa Clause!
At this time Chester is barking out the second story window at the people walking by on the sidewalk. I imagine that is scary enough for the occasion. If any more breaking news occurs, we will be sure to let you know, but at this time, we doggies still don't understand this strange human holiday.
