Time to go trick-or-treating! But Preston had to first decide if he wanted to be an alligator…. (Good guess, Maggie!)
or just be his true self…
Mommy and daddy took Preston trick r treating at Stanford Shopping Center and had tons of fun.
The inspiration of Preston’s costume came from this cool Croc-Eat-Dog costume. It was a promotion for the Zoo Neunkirchen in Germany.
Preston was exhausted after two-hours of running and wrestling in the dog park on Saturday. He spent Sunday recuperating at home while Mommy and Daddy were carving pumpkins.

Mommy and Daddy carved five pumpkins this year including a puggle face pumpkin
A sneak peak of Preston’s Halloween costume. Guess what Preston is gonna be this year??
Fetching toys by names is not new to Preston. He now has 31 toys and remembers all of their names. To get everyone in the Halloween spirit, Preston does this one a little differently…
Preston got up early today and headed east to Fremont. With plenty of water and snacks packed, he was determined to conquer Mission Peak.
All ready to go! 8:30am at trail head.
9:06am. “Already, Preston?”
A close encouter with the cows.
Only half way there.
“Hurry up, Mommy!”
Preston made it to the summit!! Elevation 2517 feet! It was so windy up there. Preston had a hard time keeping his eyes open (or even keeping his feet on the ground!) No time for sight-seeing, Preston had to start heading down before being blown away.
The 4-hour hike was made easier by the wonderful Grip Trek Boots.
Each day after Preston finishes his dinner, he brings his “stuff-a-ball”to Mommy to fill it up with yummy treats. The ball keeps him busy so that he won’t bother Mommy and Daddy at their dinner table. Occasionally, Mommy makes it a little more challenging to get the treats out of the ball by stuffing it with some chewy food (crunchy treats are the easiest!). At times like that, Preston needs help…
Preston made a trip to Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival this weekend.
He got to pick out his own pumpkin!
Picking just one was tough. After lots of sniffing and licking, Preston finally made up his mind.
Preston was very happy with his choice.

Mommy and Daddy promised Preston a “Chuckit!”if he learned to fetch a tennis ball (Fetching was not hard, letting it go was tough). Preston earned his first Chuckit! this weekend. Every good fetcher should have one!

A Blueberry Frosty Paw was waiting for Preston when he got back from the park. What a lucky puggle!
Blueberry Frosty Paw
Follow the recipe for the original Frosty Paw.
Substitute banana with 1 cup of frozen unsweetened blueberry (thawed).
Substitute peanut butter with 4 oz blueberry flavor yogurt.
It is getting hard to get Preston to do the combined tricks. He is not as eger to do tricks as he used to be. Preston finally put up with it for his beloved treat- watermelon!
