Some Spooky Halloween Words for You!

Happy Halloween! Ghosts  just don't come around on Halloween- they're always around in whatever place they choose to dwell. Spirits (who crossed over), however, come back whenever they have a message. 
 - So, if you're telling any ghost stories and want to impress your friends with words they may not have heard before, here are a couple of words you can use - courtesy of Dictionary.com. 
Haunted Pumpkin patch

nyctophobia \nik-tuh-FOH-bee-uh\, noun:

sepulchral \suh-PUHL-kruhl\, adjective:
1. Proper to or suggestive of a tomb; funereal or dismal.
2. Of or pertaining to burial.
3. Of, pertaining to, or serving as a tomb.
4. Hollow and deep: sepulchral tones.
thanatopsis \than-uh-TOP-sis\, noun:
1. A view or contemplation of death.
2. A poem (1817) by William Cullen Bryant.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
