They’re wearing festive Halloween collars they inherited from Chloe and Gracie.

I found the collars about 10 years ago at HomeGoods.

The both agree that it’s not Halloween without a few treats!

Sophie: “Where’s she hiding those treats?”

 Lola and Sophie love these Sweet Potato Treats that are one-ingredient and made in the USA.

No scary fillers, artificial ingredients, or preservatives, just dehydrated sweet potato!

They come in different sizes or “cuts”. If you have a small dog, the large size “chews”

are easy to cut into smaller pieces with kitchen shears and the “fries” break easily

into small pieces to portion out your dog’s treats throughout the day. . .

Or as a bribe to pose for photos. 🐾🐾

If you’re looking for grain-free treats for your dog that are healthy too,

Lola and Sophie give them 4 paws (8 paws?) up!

Getting Lola to hold her bone was a bit of a trick. . .

Lola says posing for photos is so exhausting. . .

    The photos of Lola and Sophie are just so cute, my little Granddogie, who looks like Lola and Sophie are coming to visit me today. Do you have a recipe to make sweet potato treats?

    • October 31, 2020 at 6:34 am

      Hi Ann, I haven’t made them but I looked up a recipe. You slice the sweet potatoes about a quarter inch thick with a mandoline, lay them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet and place in a 250 degree oven for 2 – 3 hours, turning occasionally. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks. 🐾🐾

    What an adorable treat it is to see your cute dogs!
    Also, Mary could you offer a suggestion for keeping glitter from shedding off of faux branches? One suggestion was hairspray. Wondering about anything turning over time!

    • October 31, 2020 at 7:25 am

      Hi Gale, I would think clear spray sealer would work better than hairspray as it’s more permanent. It’s available in matte or gloss depending on your branches. Look for one that states ‘will not yellow over time’ and maybe experiment on one first. :)

    I always enjoy seeing Lola and Sophie!

  4. October 31, 2020 at 7:04 am

    Such cuties, my girls are getting too fussy in their old age to pose for me, or more like I’ve lost my patience! The happy shots are the best, howling, yawning, side eyeing their treats, adorable! I hope you all trick or treat from your docks this year, you could have a heck of a Halloween boat parade and be covid safe tossing out treats 😉 happy Halloween!

    They are SO cute! Is it just me or is Sophie a live wire? She’s got so much personality that comes through in these photos! Happy Halloween, Mary.

    So adorable Mary! I love the yawns! The trick and treat bones are soo cute! I would love to see a video of you getting the girls to pose, you must have infinite patience, however I guess they know what to expect by now and are eager to cooperate and get to the rewards :) Happy Howl-o-ween!

      I agree, a video of a photo shoot with Lola and Sophie would likely be very entertaining. I’m sure we’d be howling!
      Happy Howl-oween, all!

    Happy Halloween Lola and Sophie!!! ….yes, posing for the camera can be exhausting; however, I know you two love the wonderful treats when it is all done. Tell your mom that I love the pillow on the bench and she dresses to you up so wonderfully!

    Lola and Sophie seem to be a bit less patient than Chloe and Gracie, no? I love seeing them and I think the pictures where they aren’t perfectly posed are even more entertaining than those where they are. Happy Howl-oween and thank you for your continued posts.

    So cute for Howl-o-ween. If only Sofia and Lola knew just how cute they are when they DO look at the camera I bet they would cooperate every time!

  21. October 31, 2020 at 3:35 pm

    Cute! Give The Girls a big hug for me Mary! Happy Halloween-enjoy:@)

    Haha, I love how she is holding that dog treat!

    Lola and Sophie are seriously the cutest! I am loving their adorable costumes. Halloween is one of my favorites times of year strictly for the dog costumes – my girls (Harvey and Penny) were USPS workers this year.


    Happy Halloween!
