Mitch Meets Peter the Pumpkin

Mitch met his first pumpkin today! He was scared to death of it! hehehe

He thought sniffing it from the back porch would be safest just in case he had to hightail it into the house quickly!

I think he realized that Peter wouldn't bite him so he moved in just a wee bit closer so that he could investigate further! I think he's trying to strike a deal here - I won't hurt you if you don't hurt me!

Here he is in action!

And this is a small pumpkin! Wait till he meets Peter the Great!

Till next time......................

Love ya lots,

Good job Mitch!! You can never be too cautious around pumpkins. I heard they can turn into things, like carriages and Jack-o-Lanterns. Never trust a pumpkin, Mitch.

Thank you Maggie, for your kind words about my blog. Your blog is great, too.

I will try to do a better job of keeping in touch. My secretary was down for awhile and I am dependent on her. Things are finally back to normal.

Koobuss Kisses,

Haha! So funny he's afraid of the pumpkin! Can't wait to see his jack-o-lantern response.

And of COURSE we can still be friends even if your dad loves the Giants. After all, it IS just a game (and an opportunity for great snackables!) Can't take these things TOO seriously! Except for the snackables. I take those very seriously.

Mitch: Way to go Guy. Kill that pumpkin before it gets bigger. Some of them turn into things like Pumpkin Pies................Ohhh wait a minute Mitch, you gotta be NICE to that pumpkin and not scare it OK? Then maybe you will get pie!

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Oh Mitchy...that thing looked horrifying. I've never seen one yet! I've heard if you kill it and make it into pie, it's a vast improvement. I think it's only going to get worse as Halloweiner Dog gets near.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie
Sure Mitch had a scary encounter with that pumpkin!!! I've never seen a pumpkin but maybe I'd do the same thing... bark at it!!
Have a good night

Hana said...

If Mitch only knew how good pumpkin is (so I hear), then I bet he wouldn't be afraid of it!!

Asta said...

Toby said...

Mitch, you go boy!! Good work with little Pete. I'm sure if Peter decided to attack, you'd be the winner for sure!


Simba said...

I've never bet a pumpkin. It doesn't look very scary though.

Amber-Mae said...

Ferndoggle said...

No way...that's no a pumpkin. That looks nothing like the deelicious goo I get with my breakfast.

I think Mitch is confused.


triple B's said...

Oh Mitchy! you are such a goofy doofus! we mean that in the nicest way. you are hilarious. that looks like a preffy scary pumpkin. we hope that it was not a dog eating pumpking and that you were able to make friends with it.

Mojo said...

What a big manly bark! I still sound like a silly wee girl.

Never trust a pumpkin. My parents gave one to the sheep a few years ago and it killed one. So traumatic.

Suki said...

Hahaha! Mitch, I am the same way with things like that. Like, for no reason I'll start barking at a lemon on the counter or a random toy on the floor.

You have a very big bark! Mine sounds so small next to yours ;)

Puggy kisses

Joe Stains said...

You may want to search Mitch next time he is sleeping, because somewhere there has to be a Doofus Dot on him.

Ivy said...

Stanley said...


You are pretty stinkin' FIERCE with that pumpkin. Good thing it didn't move. It must have known you would have torn him up!

Goober love,

Luckie Girl said...

I heard pumpkins taste good..but I never had a chance to try them. hmm...

Herbie said...

You should tell him pumpkins are yummy, that may make him happier to see them.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Hee. Mitch is so cute. He looks curious about the pumpkin

~Sweety baby~ said...

Mitch is sooooo cute!!

Reminds me of my encounter with Mr Crab.

Glad that you all are back!

Miss u and mitch

Lots of Love,

Chilli the Dog said...

Hee..hee...Mitch is sooo cute with the pumpkin! If I ever see a pumpkin...I think my reaction will be to bite it and try to roll it around. :)

Hope you will get pumpkin pies soon!

Wet licks


Jake of Florida said...

Hey Mitchie, I think you and I have a lot in common. Not just that super sniffing sound -- but the need to be very very very careful about anything in our line of vision that is NEW. Better safe than sorry I always say!!

Lots of love,

Just Harry

jaffeboy said...

Mitch is too cute! Barking at the pumpkin.... hahaha...

fee said...

dear mitch, now my mom thinks i am nuts because as i watched your pumpkin video, i: (1) cocked my head from side to side; and (2) barked after you like an echo. silly woman doesn't know that i was just trying to help put that pumpkin in its place!

and who is this peter the great? is he the grandfather of all pumpkins? i say we eats him!!!

your friend always,

Ruby Bleu said...

Poor Mitch...I can see where he'd be a little scared...heck, it's almost bigger than his head!

Lots of Licks, Ruby
