Caption Contest Photo #2
I was just trying to peel them for you, they are big apples right 🙂
Peter, Peter pumpkin defeater!
Maybe, if I sit reeealllly still that wierd bird won’t see me.
I helped my Mom decorate, she was unimpressed.
Really! Shame on you for thinking placing large orange balls around the house was a plan!
I was trying to make you a Jack O’Lantern.
They sure looked better than they tasted!
I wanted my initial(s) on the pumpkins too!

I just LOVE the holidays. Mom forgot to carve our initials in these two pumpkins so I helped her out. I am very happy with the way they look, mom not so much.
Couldn’t wait for the Great Pumpkin to arrive so I started early. You’re welcome!
What? This is how I show my thanks…..
what we cant eat them?!
They contrast the decor far better white. I’m sorry you couldn’t see that originally……
But mom! I thought they were real, tasty pumpkins.
I just couldn’t wait for pie Mom!
I wanted some pumpkin pie but I think there is something wrong with these pumpkins.
What do you mean, that’s not a kong?
You mean you didn’t want these carved? Oops…so ashamed!
Peter, Peter pumpkin eater!
But mom, I was just trying to put my initials on them, just like your pumpkins on the fireplace!
I thought they would taste like pumpkin pie.
This is how I carve my initials. Who said you need opposable thumbs to be creative?
Mmm. Who needs pumpkin pie when you can have pumpkin styrofoam!
These new balls don’t roll very well.
Turns out they aren’t edible! Who knew?
What?? I’m an artist you know – I call this “Deconstructed Pumpkin Carving”!
You forgot I couldn’t hold a sharpie! I had to use my mouth!
I was able to scare them off before they got to the rest of the pumpkins. Think I deserve a treat.
And the winner of the pumpkin carving contest is……..
What do you mean that’s not how you make pumpkin pie?!?!?!
What? I just wanted to help make the pumpkin pie too! Not my fault they were fake…..they looked plenty real to me. Isn’t it the thought that counts?
But you always give me pumpkin when my tummy hurts! I figured I should do it since I ate the kids’ Halloween candy…
I’m the Great Pumpkin-Eater, Charlie Brown.
What pumpkins? I don’t see any pumpkins!
I wanted to help decorate the pumpkins. My mom was not impressed with the results. I am not ashamed though. Happy Fall Y’all!!!
I outed the impostors!
The turkey made me do it!
I mean… I thought I heard pumpkin was good for us dogs?
So I saw this idea on Pinterest… Nailed it!
HAHAHA! LOVE it!
I was just trying to emboss these to looke like the other ones!
I am thankful not all pumpkins taste like styrofoam!
The paper turkey did it.
Mom forgot to take the seeds out before toasting them by the fire so I tried to do it for her.
Mom left and I got bored. No regrets.
Don’t blame me. The turkey said “Gobble, gobble.” So I did!
How else was I supposed to get your attention that it’s time to change the decor for Christmas?
Just wanted to prove that those pumpkins were not real. Next is that turkey over there. You’re welcome.
I wanted to know why you guys all fight over pumpkin pie.

Why does Mom always say my pumpkin-carving skills leave something to be desired?
Mom! Clearly its time to put out the Christmas decorations! Just helping you get started!
I just wanted to make sure the cats wouldn’t touch your pumpkins, so I left some saliva on them. And as you can see it works: no cats. What do you mean, we don’t have any cats at all?
-Hogwarts has failed me-
The jugs were empty! Where is the pumpkin juice?
Please don’t send me back to the muggle world!
H is for “Hungry!!”
I’m telling you…we have mice!
I have an unhealthy obsession with pumpkins. It’s a sickness. No, really!
What? That’s what my initials look like in Dog.
Like my carving skills?
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK….
Same great shaming taste with none of the calories of a real pumpkin!
Debra Kay Cowger
I love pumpkins! Hey wait a minute, that’s not a real pumpkin! Fake pumpkins…My new favorite!
I started carving the pumpkins for you.
I’m Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater and I am not ashamed!
Pumpkins Come And Pumpkins Go, But A Jack-O-Lantern Steals The Show!
My carved pumpkins are more beautiful than yours and I am not ashamed to say so!
But Mom! They say pumpkin is GOOD for dogs! Apparently that does not apply to artificial ones!
I’m a lonely little petunia in a pumpkin patch!
Who needs Pinterest? I am the best pumpkin carver ever. I am not ashamed.
My pumpkins, my choice….Right?
I’m still learning how to “chew” the alphabet and “H” is a hard letter!
Fall Fashion accessories for the discerning dog: Pumpkins! Great decorations and chew toys! Unashamed.
What? You didn’t need pumpkin zest?
Those pumpkins are clearly dog toys. If they weren’t for me, you wouldn’t have left them on the floor, right? …Mom?…Right? …uh oh…
I love these tasty pumpkins that Mom decorated with!
You mean you don’t use the WHOLE pumpkin for pie?
These orange balls have funny ridges – where’s my tennis balls Mom?
it’s paw style! You no like?
You had me at pumpkin!
Neither one tasted like pie. Don’t ask me how I know this.
Two down, two to go . . .
I thought your Thanksgiving decorations needed more pumpkins…your welcome!
Lisa Marie Krieger
Halloween is over, Mom. I was making them into snowballs for Christmas!
Ooops and stuff….
Happy Holidays! (PS-I will be pooping out pieces of Styrofoam pumpkin till Christmas.)
I ate “pumpkins” and made a messy brown pie. My new nickname is Pumpkin Pie.
I lost the pumpkin carving contest.
The turkey did it! I tried to stop him !
I was just trying to help put the decorations away.
I was told pumpkin helps with my stomach woes. Evidently, these made it worse 🙁
They wouldn’t give me pumpkin pie so I tried to make my own.
Orange means hazard…thought I was doing a good job protecting my people.
Well hello there…it may take me a while to polish these pumpkins into giant shiny white Christmas ornaments (I am into recycling), so why not do a little photo shoot on the side?
I can do anything you can do better…anything you can do I can do too….
Next.. The turkey ! So what if I had dessert first
I just wanted some pumpkin pie.
I heard you say how good pumpkin is. Are you sure you understand the word “good?”
Paws crossed, I will be the grand winner of the H & H PumpkinBall scratch off!
Just hand over the turkey and nothing else will get hurt!
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!
The pumpkins started it.
Yummmmm….tastes like chicken!
These are examples of what learned in pumpkin carving class, but I found it hard to pay attention.
I was making you some pumpkin pie
You’re never gonna believe what happened when you were at work…
What! I just filing my nails!
Maybe next time you will give me pie!
Help!! I’m in ‘Pumpkin Prison!’ Get me out of here before the Turkey gobbles me up!!
I get jealous when mum spends so much time fussing over these things, so I may have destroyed a couple so she can spend more time loving me instead!
I have taken up calligraphy 🙂
Mom didn’t appreciate my putting frost on the punkins. Hmph. Not ashamed.
I’m a jerk-o-lantern!
They said one more strike would lead to a turkey…I still have time.
Fake pumpkins, fake shame. . .
Megan Elkins Kelley
I ate the pumpkins, Mom. I couldn’t wait for the pie. I am not ashamed.
I read somewhere that pumpkins are a superfood for us dogs!
Oh well…Still better then the fruitcake I’ll steal next month.
I was monogramming them… In my defense, you taught me how to sit not spell
The turkey did it.
They started it… I finished it.
I came, I carved
“My name doesn’t begin with H.”
The vet said I needed more fiber in my diet.
I tried telling them that it’s no longer Halloween. Then I took matters into my own hands
Happy Halloween! Look I eat the pumpkin! Now you don’t need to carve the pumpkins!Oh by the way now you can make pumpkin pie!
It looks like the pumpkins are fighting again
I reject your attempts at festivity.
They attacked me first, I had no choice. I was protecting the house, you’re welcome.
The squirrels did it!
I was getting creative with the holiday carvings!
I’m ashamed at YOU! Fake pumpkins… Where is the real stuff?
Hey, I’M your little pumpkin. You don’t need any others!
I didn’t want them to hatch into one of those weird orange birds! Your welcome!
Peter Peter pumpkin eater
Loved to chew; a law breaking repeater
This holiday his menu did swell
IS NOT ASHAMED AND DOING WELL
I just wanted to get a head start on making the pumpkin pie!
Mmmmm…tastes like chicken.
I was helping you get ready to make the pumpkin pies I will steal off the counter.
I thought The Great Pumpkin came in pie form!
I couldn’t wait to grate the pumpkin, then I realized you said ‘Wait for the GREAT pumpkin’…I am so ashamed.
I was going for a more ‘natural’ pumpkin look…
Jackie DeRosa Allen
Fake pumpkins, real pumpkins, they all give me gas…sorry
I carve the pumpkins to help my hoomans, they shame me with the evidence… this is the thanks I get!!
Mom secretly told me to do it so she could go shopping for more decorations … I love my mom!
Shame on ME? No, shame on YOU, Mom — the pumpkins you got me weren’t even real!
Someone bought fake pumpkins! I identified them for you.
I listened to my inner artist and went with abstract this year, absolutely not ashamed.
Hmmmm, liars! Everything does NOT taste like chicken.
H is for the Halloween I ruined
Sorry mom. I just couldn’t wait for Thanksgiving for Pumpkin Pie!
Well you tell me how Cinderella turned it into a coach and I’ll tell you where your slippers are!
Did you see what the cat did while you were gone?
Imagine my surprise that these were only decorations. Thought they were for us to eat!! Sorry but only cause it didn’t taste very good.
I ate the Great Pumpkin. Linus was not happy.
Still better then mommy’s cooking
I should have waited until the pumpkins were baked into a pie.
They were gourd to the last bite!
I thought they were big balls for playing fetch.
Pumpkin carving gone wrong!
Mom’s Sandra Lee-Style Tablescape: 0.
Um…I’m soooo ashamed?! I’m not the one who put these fake pumpkins out.
I turned them into squash. These could use some real pumpkin-patching!
U (you know, to spell ‘huh?’)
Could I please have some cinnamon and whipped cream? These don’t taste right without them.
They must be out of their gourds if they think I did this!
These aren’t real! I thought you should know.
I’m not ashamed! I saved you from a seriously horrible pie. (PS: Those were not organic.)
I liked the fake ones better than the real ones!
I’m engraving my monogram. There’s no shame in that.
I’m surrounded by LIES!!! I suppose now you’re going to tell I was adopted!?
Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me!
I ate the real turkey, now I have to wear this silly sign and pose with the fake turkey. Oh well, best thanksgiving ever! Woof!!
