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?

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

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!

Monday Mischief: Falling Leaves

One of the things that I love about fall is watching the dogs put their noses up in the air to smell messages on the wind. At least, that is what I assume they are doing. They all seem to do it. I am sure that if we humans paid more attention we could learn a lot by sticking our noses in the wind.
