Smart Dogs

October has been beautiful. Lots of sunny skies, warm weather, and changing leaves. Perfect for hanging out in the yard. But yesterday began the transition to November – cloudy, cool, rainy. Smart dogs found the perfect ways to spend the day.

Typhoon demonstrates the power of youth by sitting outside in the drizzle. Ok, so maybe youth triumphs over smart sometimes.

    Mom sez: I think Kiska, Qannik, and Frankie had the best idea. Typhoon, well, he’s so busy being “just Typhoon” that he doesn’t have much time for anything else!
