Fall Is Here

When I think of Fall, I think of cool nights with an afghan over my legs as I read or knit. I think of the smell of apples and cinnamon as a pie comes out of the oven. I think of pulling the quilt up over my shoulders as I fall asleep.
My dogs think of different things when Fall hits the air. They think of running. Even Sebastian was running last weekend. He and Noah were enjoying a game of chase. First Sebastian would chase Noah, then Noah would chase Sebastian.

On Sunday we brought out the frisbees and everybody was interested. Look at this excited group.
Everyone went racing down the hill to grab the frisbee.
Look at the left hand side of the picture. Morgan was right in there with ears flying. Don't count her out just because she's a senior.
Mac loves to chase anything we throw. She even brings things back some of the time.
She's a good sport if someone else beats her to the prize. Sydney is a different story. If she chases after something, she wants to get it and wants to keep it to herself. That girl needs to work on her sharing.

Another throw and off they all go.
Fudge seemed to be good at getting there first and even brought the frisbee all the way back to us.
His little friend stayed along side.
Except when she had to take a quick break.
Lola decided to wait at the foot of the hill for the frisbee to come to her. Smart girl!
Bailey caught one and looked to see if anyone was chasing her.
Then she brought it to me to throw again.
Morgan brought back a ball and Sydney tried to make friends in order to steal the ball. Morgan hung on to it. She knows all about puppy tricks.
In case you're wondering where Sebastian was during all this, he was hanging with his person.

Don't get me wrong, the dogs also think of good smells in the Fall. They're dreaming of apple peanut butter cookies and turkey soup.

It was a good weekend.

Baby Brutus loved a good game of Frisbee. He liked it inside, but then, we have a series of rooms where someone competent (read: not me) can throw a frisbee a good 40 feet, through 2 doorways and over furniture. It's a good time on a rainy day.

I'm looking forward to apple pie and turkey soup, too.

It is the season to RUN! We love it, too. The dogs are lucky to have someone who keeps tossing the Frisbee!

Running and more running is happening here too. Gg is tucked under the blanket that is across my feet. Sissy is delighted to have more pumpkin treats too!

Oh fun! Beau has been wanting more and more walks. Every day - twice a day if he can get them (which he can not!)

I love that Fudge brings the Frisbee all the way back. And I love that puppies are back in the header! g

Looks like a great weekend. I like your dream of apple pie, staying cosy and knitting!
Still the dogs have a good idea of fun and I reckon they will keep you young and fit!
Thank you so much for your kind message re Bailey. It is three weeks now and we still miss her so much. I went back to the blog and that helped. So many special times and special friends.
Martha is struggling at the moment but hopefully she will settle with time.
Thanks again and so glad to see you all well and happy.

I dont' really see the point of frisbees, but I definitely like the running!

It's great to see the pups having so much fun. Morgan looks fantastic! Fall is such a wonderful time of year. It always makes us feel energized after our long, hot summers. Since Wrigs and I can't hike together for at least another month, it feels like we are missing out on the change in seasons and those lovely, crisp fall mornings.
