CRAWL FOR IT!

And that's just one of many things Ivan and I will yell at trick-or-treaters, after hurling their candy as far into the darkness as possible, when we are acerbic but spry white-haired cat ladies.

can we have dogs instead of cats? then we can sick them on the kiddies too... much more interesting version of halloween... and maybe the candy can be minature toothbrushes... disapointment for everyone! mwhahahaha.

i don't know -- i've seen a house overrun with dogs, and it was not a pretty sight at all; cats do all right when there are too many for them to receive individual attention, but dogs clamor for it no matter how numerous they are. what's more, it was horribly gauche -- there is at least a certain ascetic romance associated with the "cat lady" lifestyle.
if, however, you wish to train a colony of dogs to indiscriminately attack any small children seeking candy, you have my blessing -- and you know where to send the pictures.

somehow i think that two old ladies who make children crawl after their candy and own a pack of slavering hounds won't be too worried about appearing horribly gauche, especially if we are the sort to photograph our exploits and circulate the photos (btw, I put you on the mailing list) but i might be wrong. i vote cats AND dogs AND a capybara for good measure, thereby updating and expanding the "cat lady" lifestyle, as has been due for decades.
