Pumpkins


Love the creative use of 'junk'.

Here are mine: the two in the front weigh upwards of 150 lbs a piece.

No, I didn't grow them, but we bought them from a local farmer who did. I won't carve them till next weekend.

Very cool. That must have been fun making those! Will you set them outside Halloween night?

Squirrels destroy them in hours where I am. These are fun though. Thanks for posting them.

How does the dog move around with that big pumpkin head?

Thank you, Brokenknee, for noticing my photographic genius. No photoshop involved. Just really good timing and a dog biscuit or two.

I was wondering when someone would notice....

They do say a great photograph is all in the timing.

Our dog eats pumpkins, well at least she chewed up at least five of the smaller ones the wife had out. It was getting to the point were I was going to give her a pumpkin head. The wife wouldn't let me, that is her little puppy, one year old black lab/Shepard/? mix that weights 67lbs. We were told she would only get to about 40lbs when we got her. The wife got her on the rebound after we had to put down our 14 year old dauschound.

Sorry. The pumpkin-headed mix in the picture weighs 18lbs and is our rebound from when our chihuahua mix died. A little smaller than your pumpkin eater, but she came with a 65lb lab mix of her own. The two of them, plus our doxie mix, don't eat pumpkins, but they do eat newspapers, dog beds, squirrels, rabbits, robins, moles, magazines, christmas lights, chicken feed....
