What is Autumn if not for playing in the leaves! Remember leaf piles, and jumping in them? The other day we raked a pile and jumped and played… the dogs too. It wasn’t our “Official Annual Leaf Pile Party” but rather siezing the day! It was such a warm and beautiful afternoon…. just perfect for playing outside.
The young one rakes leaves in a pile with help from the yellow lab.
Running and jumping in leaf piles is my favorite… or hiding in them. And of course grabbing a big armful and throwing them in the air is always fun!
The dogs would not be left out of the fun… the Lab and Basset Hound chased each other around the grass and leaves. They were cute to watch… a grumpy ‘ole Basset and a year-old Lab. You can guess who was doing most of the running!
We also got in a full afternoon of retriever work with the lab. He did very well this day, and finally settled in the grass for a break. I think he’s happiest when he can run and run… the signature tongue-hanging-out-the-side-of-the-mouth says it all.
And today of course is a day to be thankful for so many things… Some of us will spend time with family and friends, and others in quiet reflection. However you spend the day, I hope it finds you well.
