"Trunk or Treat" - Lenore Skenazy

Halloween is upon us now and children all over Ireland are getting their costumes ready to go out knocking on doors in hope of gathering great bags of sweets and other goodies. But I'm told that this year it's more a case of "trunk or treat" rather than "trick or treat".

Our own Michael Lawless went out to Dogstrust to find out how people should look after they're animals on Halloween night.

Heated floors & 24 hour care, a nice home even for a dog.
