Getting ahead with Ciara

I've been working on a Dia de los Muertos skull pinata for Saturday's party. It's a paper mache thing, and it's still got the balloon inside keeping it filled, so I dangle it upside down while it's drying from the latest coat of gluewater.

Ciara has finally taken notice.

You can't tell it from the video, but she was low-growling at it most of the evening, and making little soft whoofy noises at it. This from a dog that never does that kind of thing.

I call that an effective Halloween device, if it's not even done and it's scaring the pets.

NOTE: Annoyingly, Vox is saying the video is being "processed." So until Vox gets its act together, click over here to view the dog in full-alert mode.
