Halloween has always been a big deal in North America… you can be sure that in every self-respecting neighbourhood at least one over-enthusiastic household is gonna go to town with their haunted house decorations. Carved pumpkins have always provided a canvas for ghoulish creativity but nowadays, even a superbly executed Jack Skellington jack-o-lantern isn’t going to cut it in the wow-factor stakes.

Candle lit skulls have always been popular but in recent years, full sized human skeletons have started to appear in increasingly bizarre (and fun) front yard displays. It was only a matter of time before our trusty canine companions made an appearance…

CAN DOGS CLIMB TREES? HELL YEAH!

Nobody believes you when you tell them your puny little jackapoo can climb trees. When our little dude just randomly started going vertical at every opportunity that came his way… well, jaws dropped. Guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise that dogs, one of the most adaptable and versatile predatory creatures on this Earth are capable of getting up to where their dinner might be hiding. So can dogs climb trees? Yup, they can. Check out this little compilation… kicking  off with Motley, HOUNDWORTHY‘s alpha hound and local park hero.

1) Squirrels… Motley’s earliest efforts

2. Toby the Jack Russell – excellent technique if a bit shakey

3) Crazy Bulldog on Johnny Carson!

4) Fox News figured this was worth a whole segment
