Wonderful Wednesday: ByeBye Pool ‘Til Next Spring

Charles here: This is the last picture that Mom took of us before she put the big green cover on the pool. We like to look at the pool but we don’t want to go in it. We are not really water dogs and even when invited we think it is scary. We do like to run around and chase the ducks and stuff that fly in and we love to dig in the dirt and make a mess in the bushes.

Hard to believe how fast seasons seem to move. When Mom opened the pool the end of May, Louise was still with us (she passed June 17). Now that we are closing the pool, she is gone and Jolie has come to stay. Change is on the wind as the light grows shorter and shorter each day.

Jolie is learning to love lying on the warm deck as much as I do. The Fall afternoon sun is awesome!

Happy AUTUMNAL EQUINOX everyone.

Monday Mischief: Falling Into Autumn

This week, in the Northern Hemisphere, autumn begins for real. It has been feeling like autumn for many days with the cool nights and the leaves falling to the ground. Thursday, September 22 the autumnal equinox* will make it really autumn even though to meteorologists, meteorological fall started on September 1. This is all very confusing but Mom says it is the bestest season of all 4 (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring) and we are taking full advantage everyday.

*At this point, the Earth’s tilt is moving away from its maximum lean toward the Sun; its rays are aiming directly at the equator.

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

There is nothing more enjoyable than a fall day on the deck.

Even Nine and Mini want to get in on the action from inside.

Wonderful Wednesday: Change Is In The Air

Sofie: Another beautiful afternoon sitting in the leaves. Big tree sure does drop a lot of them.
Charles: Hey, Sofie. I smell some change in the air.
Louise: Change? I don’t like change. I think I will hide here in this pile of leaves until it passes. Maybe I will come out on January 21st.

Monday Mischief: Remembering Falls Past

Louise and Sofie Fall 2015

Squash Fall 2007

Autumn days come quickly, like the running of a hound on the moor.
Irish proverb

Last week it was summer and this week it turned to true fall: welcome The Autumnal Equinox.

Fall was always Squash E Bears perfect time. His winter coat would start to bloom and he really looked like the perfect cuddle bear. Gosh, I miss that dog every day. I do love the current pack but there was something about Squash that even made people stop their cars in the middle of the street and ask about him. It was not really how he looked, though he was a formidable giant ball of fluff, he exuded this gentle energy that could be felt all around.

Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, the crisp air, the smell of cider, and the pumpkin. I love how the animals start to gather all their hordes of food for winter, scurrying up and down the trees. And the smell of wood fires burning. Fall doesn’t last very long in the Mid-Atlantic anymore, we tend to go from summer heat to winter cold very quickly. So, I breathe in every moment I can get.

Oh my, I think I need to go make an apple pie. What do you love most about fall?

Wonderful Wednesday: The Master of Fall

Squash E Bear Fall 2007

Squash E Bear
Fall 2007

It wouldn’t be fall without a look back at the master of fall himself, Squash E. Bear. He looked great in the fall leaves with his big fluffy coat. Squash was the kind of dog that people would just stop and look at; “Can I pet him?” “What is he?” Once people actually stopped their car when I was walking him to ask about him. And then there was the time he and I were in a pet food store buying food and there was one of those weekend pet adoption fairs going on and someone actually tried to buy him off me. He just always attracted people and other animals to him.

What are some of your favorite animal fall moments?

Miss you every day, Big Guy. Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
