    Sorry, I don't carve pumpkins, but I have a friend that does. He takes pictures of the dogs they own, or foster (He and his wife are part of our Irish Setter Rescue of North Texas, and they also rescue English Setters) and carves them. Here are a couple he did this year on fake pumpkins, usually uses real ones, that shows the sequence from picture to computer image to pumpkin.

    Hope these come through. Jim.

    I still need to get one first. Then decide what to try to carve.

    Hmm, Haven't carved a pumpkin in years. Don't get many/any Trick or Treaters here. Might have to pick one up tomorrow and see what I can do...

    I'm sure the jack rabbits and cotton tails will enjoy it...
