Halloween Cards and Tags

Download the Halloween Cards and Tags.  Thanks for the information.  Our friend from the Black Forest asked about the Dalmatians and we have a more official answer.....
  Dalmatians were used to chase rats out of the fire stations and horse stables of London. They were trained to escort the fire engine, to protect the horses from stray dogs and other animals. Also the distinctive spots of the Dalmatian made it easy for the horses to distinguish from other dogs. Dalmatians had a "natural calming effect on horses." The dogs escorted the horse-drawn carriage in order to quiet the horses. Once on the scene, however, the dog had other duties as well, including safeguarding the fire equipment from vandalism and theft.

Its always fun to learn where these customs originate, and really how long they have been going on.  Thanks for letting us know.  Also, I didn't have trouble with that download, try again, sorry.  We are out of bandwidth, so I shut it off until the 1st of the month.  Locate the password in the Terms of Use, and have fun.
