AND, just so you know that I'm not wasting this gorgeous day, I actually sat outside to write this post while the dogs chewed on sticks. The colors are getting to be so beautiful!
and then I had a puppy photoshoot! .... I wish I could have caught Dillion with his "stogie" in his mouth. Joe walked outside and Dillion greeted him holding a piece of a very small branch that looked like a giant cigar in his big doggie mouth! I did manage to snap a few of my cute canine companions playing on this rare Indian summer day. (I was wearing a tank top!)
they are happily playing inside now... right underfoot of course. :D
