Sunset Walks


As the days are getting shorter, moon rises and sun sets are starting to happen during our evening walks.


And the shadows certainly show off how Frankie is blowing coat in preparation for winter.


Come on, kid, we are waiting on you.

Yawn. Oh, sorry, guess that just means bedtime is getting earlier.

    And we thought the White Dog Army were the only pups blowing coat! Momma says it is snowing early in our yard with all the white floof lingering. Already we are missing the long days, but not the heat.

    This is Ayla’s hu-Mom this time. My computer is acting up, and told me it had deleted Ayla’s first comment, so she got me to put it in again, and this is what happened.

    Ayla sez: “Wouldn’t it be “funner” if the snow was here on the longer daylight hours, instead of the shorter days? That way, we’d have longer hours to be out walking and playing in the snow.”

    Wouldn’t it be “funner” if the snow was here for the longer daylight days instead of the shorter days? We’d all have longer hours to be outside in the snow, snow, SNOW!

    I love fall, but it leads to winter, and that is something I do not enjoy! But I bet you guys love snow? 🙂

    We are so looking forward to it!

    I guess it does! Maybe that’s why I’ve been so tired this week…
