October 13, 2012


You can win your very own copy of The Alpha-Pet book!

You can even get it "autochewed" by me, Jack!

All you have to do is guess how many
'trick-or-treaters' will come by my
house on Halloween!

Put your guess in the comments below.

The two guessers who come closest
(without going over)
will win a copy of The Alpha-Pet book.

Please leave your guess before
October 20th.

Just a hint:
We always have more than one,
but less than 100 tricks-or-treaters,
but you can guess over 100 if you like.
 The tall guy gives out really good candy.
But I don't get none :( 


  1. Let me think about this, Jack....

    You were born 8/23/08, those numbers total 39, plus there were 11 puppies in your litter, so that makes 50; plus, I will add in 1 more for good, my guess is:

    51 Trick-or-treaters

    will come to your house!!

    I hope I win :-)

    Your friend,

    PS - If there is any of that really good candy left, maybe you can give it away as a consolation prize! BOL

  2. We have put our collective heads together and come up with
    42 trick or treaters.

  3. We happen to like the number 57!

  5. we like the number 81!..sure hope the famous book makes a trip to Canada!

  6. Ok, let's see. We are guessing 33. Hope the Tall one doesn't eat all the candy then turn off the porch light
    Benny & Lily

  7. 17. ( Jack - If we win we'll devote the candy to a good cause - you )

  8. We think 55. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly.

  9. Well, I know my momma would just turn out the lights on Halloween, but Master always hopes for visitors so there you go. I am guessing 7.


  10. We don't get no candies either, and even though we bark at the costumes, we don't get to see too many because the little kids get scared. But we always hope one will drop a piece of candies. We expect lots of trick or treaters so we guess 77. Now to go work on our scary dog costumes....

  11. BOO Jack what a great has 4 of your books so I am not going to let her guess
    Good luck to everyone

  12. I'm going to guess 99.5 and if I win, I'd definitely like it autochewed.

  13. 27. Its my favorite number!!!

  14. We'll say 67... We did get our copies and have given my Mom one - she absolutely loved it!


  15. I am guessing 55. We get like 150 or more(seriously) it is crazy around here. I don't get any candy either, but Mommy gets doggy treats for any of my pals that visit.

  16. Sounds fun! We are guessing 63. Even if you don't get some of those candy treats, use those eyes and convince TG you deserve a special treat...just for you!

  17. i have to go with what was a very good year for me.
    23. good times.
    hugs to you dearest boy,
    tammy j

  18. That sounds fun, so many trick or treaters coming by! Im excited to see how many will you see this year! My guess is about 48 and all just see you of course (and maybe get some candy!) ;-)

  19. We get fewer and fewer every year. Must be the apples and toothbrushes we give out. Just kidding. My guess is 4.

  20. We don't get alot of kids here because the sidewalk before our house and turns to a dead end. The rest of the town gets tons of kids. So I'm going to guess 90.
    Clyde would LOVE 90 children coming just to pet him!

  21. Oh Jack, Wrigley doesn't get candy either. In fact, we don't even get trick or treaters at our house!

    I think you'll get 48 people coming to visit you :)

  22. Okay here will be....23!

  23. I'm gonna guess 25. Princess and Clifford don't get any candy or trick or treaters here either. Our house is off the road a little ways and I think the kids find it a little too scary dark to get here.

  24. Hmmmmmmmm I think we will make a guess of 75 trick or treaters...

    What a great prize...we would definitely want ours pre-chewed!!


  25. We had our number before we read other bloggers guesses. It was 62 but bbs tribe guessed 63 and we don't want to undercut them so we will go to 60. Is that ok?

  26. Sorry for the late and My Lady argued for hours on this. We reflected on your pictures, seen sidewalks, nice grass, level streets. Were thinkin a lot, so our guess is 86. I hope it is good as last years, it was so fun!

    Jack, this is a good contest for Halloweenie. We are going to guess 39. We live in an area where there aren't many mini-peoples so we don't get any trick-or-treaters. Which is ok, 'cause we would just bark-bark-bark at them if they came to the door, which mom says is not polite.

  28. The Three M's ( Max, Mia and Misskitty) have decided on the number 47....go figure...Enjoy

    I am going to guess 7 tricks-or-treats at your door. Don't be stingy like my mean-ole-mom is with treats.

  30. We thought mama made us miss the deadline by an hour and 40 minutes, but then Abby reminded us that by YOUR time it's still before midnight, ergo we are commenting before Oct 20th YOUR time. So our guess is 11. What's the tie-breaker if a number with more than one taker wins?
