The Puppy and the Pumpkin

October 12, 2012

On an early morning walk this week, Cookie found something growing amid all the leaves

..a pumpkin!  Growing undisturbed in a thicket, amazingly overlooked by our local wildlife.  It was one of our best walk-discoveries ever.  Cookie is truly enjoying her first fall.  She loves to sniff and roll around in the piles of leaves that have accumulated around town.  She seeks out the small branches and sticks that fall from the trees and trots around with them in her mouth.  The squirrels are extra busy right now, and Cookie watches with interest when they scamper by.  We see Deer very often as we walk, and she is always calm and doesn’t bark at them, giving me a chance to enjoy being in their presence.  The cooler air has definitely energized Cookie, putting a spring in her step and livening up our early morning outings.  Warm & Fuzzies, Diana
