This is what happens when you are very "exciteable" and nobody wants you to scare the little ones to death on Halloween! Poor Goliath, destined to sit behind the barricade, wine and wimper, and not being able to partake in ghosts and goblins of all sorts.
Although I am sure that the first two little ones who approached the door "before" we got the gate up and dogs on the right side of it thought that they were about to eaten and gobbled up by monsters! God I hope they are not scarred for life!
Golly, only 18 or so kids this year, I miss seeing the little ones , they always look so cute! We only had about 6 under the age of 5 this year, :(
