4 Halloween goodies dogs should be scared of (but aren't!)

It's Halloween, which means there will likely be copious amounts of junk food coming into your home over the next few days (because even if you don't have kids I bet at least a third of you will raid the candy aisle during the Halloween clearance sales, amirite?)

But there are some goodies out there that can be a nightmare for you and your dog if he or she breaks into them.

So lets spread the word and remind our friends and family what NOT to leave out this week -- or all year long. This is with the help of PetMD.com.
4 Halloween treats dogs shouldn't have: chocolate, nuts, xylitol and raisins

Apopka's Club Lake Plantation full of dog-friendly fall fun

Earlier this month, I wrote this feature for Barkpost about some great fall/Halloween activities you can do with your dog. 25 of them, in fact.
Well I found a new one, and it's really close to my house too!

Lulu had a blast exploring Club Lake Plantation in Apopka, near Orlando.

Adopt a pet shelter! 5 ways to help shelters, dogs

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

Do you have a shelter pet? We have three!

 Keeping the number of pets in the shelters to a minimum (zero would be better) enables the shelters to save more animals from the streets and from bad situations.

If I could take them all in, I would. I can't even go to the shelters because the temptation is too great.

But if you, like me, can't take in any more pets, there are lots of easy ways to help shelters, and by extension, help those pets!

Here are 5 ways, with help from Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando.

Everything is Pawsome! Legoland Florida lets the dogs in

With fall here, most water parks and community pools are closing for year.

Many of them closed in September. But here in Florida we are blessed with slightly better weather for watery fun. That's why Legoland Florida is closing its water park on Halloween -- except for one special day for the dogs.
