Every dog needs a place to go and be left totally alone. That means neither adult and especially children don't bother the dog or even look at then in their "Safe Place". We all need alone time where no one messes" with us or the dog.
This is serious, keep your cats (especially black cats) indoors a day or two before, and on Halloween. Crazy, evil people have been known to steal cats to perform their horrible, murdering rituals on them to make their pathetic lives seem more powerful. Do NOT let this happen to you!
