Another Autumn Walk

Last Monday we went for a walk at another one of my favorite parks! There is a pet trail that goes through the woods and down to a creek. There was no one else there so we had the whole place to ourselves! We couldn't have asked for a nicer day!

When we set out I had to encourage mom and dad to get going - they are so slow sometimes! See the big sycamore tree leaves on the ground?


The sky was blue and the maple tree leaves were so yellow and pretty against the blue sky.


I jumped right up on this log and started walking it like a dogwalk.

Looking down the creek and then up:


Mom liked the tree roots:

Nearing the end of the trail:

Pondering the great outdoors:


Yesterday we went for a walk at the cemetery - we hadn't been there in a long time. I had fun but mom got annoyed with me because I kept running too far ahead and didn't come when she called me. So we didn't stay there long........

Today mom took me to the park really close to our house and I was much better and listened to her so we got to walk around for quite a long time! I know it pays to behave!

We are really savoring these nice weather days because we are afraid that there won't be many more of them until spring!

Gotta zoom!

Wow Ricky! You're behaving off leash? How cool is that! And walking the log, that was very very brave and cool all at the same time! I could never trust Katie off leash I don't think, though I've taken the leash off when we're in the woods far from the road just to take a picture of her posed. I went by an off leash dog park the other day. I wonder if she'd mind me there?

It is nice to get out and enjoy these last days of fall and that is a beautiful park to go and visit. I liked the photo of you on the log - you looked so proud standing up there.

That sounds like the most wonderful day, to have a gorgeous place like that all to yourself and to be off leash...what could be better in life?

PS: You had to come when your mom is calling you or else you will end up in leash all the time!!

Looks like a beautiful place to walk. I love it when no one else is on the trails where we walk. Makes it so relaxing!

Looks like a lovely walk.
Sometimes it a tough decision whether to obey your senses or your Mom!
I casnot believe you let someone pick you up! I think it harder to feel if we porkers or not cos of our undercoat and the lady who called me a porker is a bit border collie lady.
