    Dear Mom and Dad,

    I love to do anything to see a smile on your face. I will be happy to wear that silly Halloween costume that you just bought me if it will make you giggle. However, would you please keep my time in it to a minimum? If it restricts my movement I might get a little cranky. If it restricts my vision I might get scared. Gather the kids for our photo then, please, undress me and send me to my crate or to a bedroom for the evening. Unless you have exposed me to human costumes and masks before, I could get a little spooked by your friends and their children on this particular night.

    Love,

    The Dog
