Hey, what's up, dogs? Jerry and Ben have sent a card and a prize for my participation in their Halloween costume contest.
I really like the card. Those trick-or-treaters look petrified. And there's a Starbucks gift card for me, so I can get a (non-caffeinated) treat. Thanks guys! You always do a great job hosting the contest...
The entry lines were very long, but once we got in, we saw some incredible sandcastles!
This one is a replica of the Downtown Houston skyline.
Some more Houston spirit here...You can see the logos of the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets, and the Houston Texans!
And this sandcastle below is a tongue-in-cheek representation of Houston highway traffic...
There were a lot of world landmarks represented in the competition. For example, the Egyptian pyramids...
...and the city of Petra, in Jordan. This city was featured in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Our archaeologist friend Little Fox should take a picture here!
This one is my personal favorite. It represents the replacement of brick-and-mortar establishments (like Toys 'R' Us!) by Amazon.
There was also a tribute to the Beatles, appropriately entitled "Yellow Submarine."
And here is the first-place winner, which was the tallest and most detailed of all the sandcastles on the beach. They did a great job!
I'm amazed that they were able to build such a beautiful display in just under 7 hours! All right, that's the end of my sandcastle adventure. Time to head home and wash the sand off my paws...Till next time, everybody!
Hey, what's up, dogs? Look what I found in the store the other day:
Scottie Dog Shortbread cookies! Aren't they cute?
Apparently my human wants a closer look. Yeah! What do you think?
….Really? You had to decapitate it with the first bite? (Sigh) Humans.
Tell you what...next time you can get me human-shaped cookies, and I'll bite off their heads. That's only fair, right? Hey, while I have you all here, we got a postcard from Little Fox, who was visiting Tahoe. He writes:
"Tahoe was amazing! Scenery, salmon, and hiking...just need to add in Artisanal Bacon. Hope all is well!"
Yes indeed...Artisanal Bacon makes everything better. Thanks for the postcard Little Fox!
