Happy Halloween from Thailand!

October 31, 2011 § 5 Comments

This morning I awoke to the sound of the most terrible wailing. It sounded like it was coming from directly outside of my house. I went to investigate– luckily I had enough foresight to bring my camera. I slowly opened my front door and saw this frightening apparition floating around my yard:

What in the world? --Is that what I think it is?

I still couldn’t tell what exactly it was. I followed it around (thankfully it didn’t see me and disappear like fog on a sunny day) and I was able to take some more pictures. I really wanted to gather evidence if this thing proved to be what I thought it might be. The National Enquirer is going to love me, I thought.

I followed it around as it stopped at various spots in the yard to sniff and relieve itself. Very weird, I thought, I didn’t know they did that… It appeared behind the tree in my yard and I quickly snapped a picture. But shoot– it was out of focus.

A bit out of focus... but wait... is that a-- ?

I re-focused and … oh my god! It is! It is a Thai Ghost Dog!!1!

Oh $h*t!!! It's A Thai Ghost!

Happy Halloween from Thailand!!

P.S. No dogs were harmed in the making of this blog post (only humiliated).

      Haha! To make amends for forcing her into that humiliating get-up, I gave her her favorite dinner: warm rice mixed with dog food. Plus I gave her quite a lot of treats just for looking cute. Love my dog! : )

    Love Ghost Dog. In that get up, he (?) looks like he could be a super hero, complete with alter ego. 🙂

      She does have an alter ego: Tearsshit Up.

      Do you celebrate Halloween in Australia, TOJ? If so, what did you and your family do? Another Australian-ish blogger I follow wrote that Halloween is considered American cultural imperialism in Australia but that she was celebrating anyway. haha

        In my younger days, when I had pure ideals blah blah etc, I, too, considered that it was American cultural imperialism etc. Now that I have my own children, and they love going out at night with their school friends, dressing up in costumes and getting lollies, who am I to be a cranky old man and deny them?

        Yep, we went out trick or treating last night, and the kids had a ball. 🙂
