Happy Halloween, everyone! Here are some creepy, crawly, scary critters I saw last summer. I saved them up for you for Halloween:
This one was so ugly, I didn't even want to chase him. Truth be told, he scared both me and Mommy -- she let out a big squeal and ran to fetch Daddy. He said it was just a potato bug, or if you like a better name: a Jerusalem Cricket. And that's where the bug should have stayed if you ask me, in Jerusalem, wherever that is, and I hope it's very far away.
This one takes the prize for warts. And he has some poison he sprays in your mouth if you try to bite him. Soldier got it, but I learn fast and stayed far away. I think he's after us dogs because Mommy moved him to the garden where there is water and he kept coming back.....to torture and poison us, I bet. At least this time he couldn't get in, but he sure kept trying.
Then one morning we found this little snake and two others in the road, all three were dead. Good, I said to myself, but Mommy was sad because they were just babies. I sometimes don't understand the person race. Then the ravens came and ate the snakes! Personally, I'm glad my food comes in bags and cans! From the store.
This last bug was the only pretty one. It was beautiful as it flew all over our yard, like a helicopter. It had a gorgeous blue body and orange wings. Mommy was running after it with her camera, trying to get a picture. Of course Mommy wasn't fast enough, but the critter was kind and sat down and posed so Mommy could get her picture. Then we rushed in the house and looked it up in Mommy's book: A Tarantula Hawk it's called. Persons are so strange: This is neither a tarantula nor a hawk... Well, guess I lucked out to be called a Samoyed, from the people my kind originally lived with. Called a Tribe. In Russia. On the Tundra. In Siberia. Yep, that's me.
Bobbi, you better give Gracie lots of treats for Halloween or else I may send you a creepy crawly critter in the mail. He, he, he....
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!

Dear Samson--I'm glad you learned not to bite those frogs--I hope Mommy learned that, too! I love to eat frog's legs, but only after they are properly cooked.ReplyDelete
Oh Samson! What Creepy Crawlers!!! And the snakes.. ick. I do not like snakes or creepy crawlers. But these were very interesting...ReplyDelete
Don't worry Samson, Gracie got lots of treats. But if you read my blog tonight you will see she was not happy with her doggie treats. She wanted the chocolate that belonged to the Princess.
Tell your mama I said hello and I'm so glad to have you all back in blogland!! Gracie said she still loves you Samson!
Very cool and scary post Samson.ReplyDelete
An excellent post, Samson. Happy Halloween to you!ReplyDelete
Great pictures Samson! The first bug was the scariest to me. Would probably scream like your Mom.ReplyDelete
Hope you had a happy Halloween.. not many trick or treaters? We had a bunch... little tots through teens.. even some Mom's carried an extra bucket for themselves... It was fun to see them all in their cute costumes. All seemed to be having a great time. Many of the neighbors kept their porch lights off to discourage the kids.. Glad we didn't. Made any bread yet?ReplyDelete
That last pic is the scariest of them all ;)ReplyDelete
Poor baby snakes! :(ReplyDelete
That tarantula hawk looks scary!
Good morning , You write some fabulous blogs. I come back right here regularly to find out if you have kept as a lot as date. I thought you could want to understand, as soon as I press your RSS feed it re-directs me to another weblog.ReplyDelete
As a final point , permit me thank you for your patience with my English as (I'm sure you have figured this at this time ,), English is not my mother language so I am utilizing Google Translate to figure out what to enter what I sincerely want to tell.
Those Jerusalem Crickets are not pretty, and my husband detests them. So it is me that moves them, not him. Of course I love to tease him about that fact. I love frogs and toads, cows, and roads. I do have a fear of dogs and I do not know why. Agressive ones, the energitic ones always come to ME. I try to fake my fear. But yet not afraid of the Jerusalem Cricket!ReplyDelete
