The life of a 12-year-old puppy, in love with squeakies and Ol' Roys

And it’s Fall

Posted by faiththemutt on October 21, 2009

JainaIcon: I’ve discovered that the tree in our backyard has forgotten that fall is a sort of  slow process.  You know, the leaves change, things are pretty for a while and even though it’s getting colder, you get a sort of calm before the snow, as it were.  Since we all complain the minute the weather isn’t a balmy 80*, we at least get to enjoy the pretty colors before it becomes snowy and cold– Or arctic if you happen to live in the midwest.  Like me.  Buuuut.  As I said, the tree out back– forgot.

Yesterday morning, I let the dogs out to do their thing and I could see the yard.  The grass was still pretty green, it was at least nice out and I didn’t think anything of it.  I went to class, came home, let the dogs out again… I could barely find the back deck.  It was like a reanactment of the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree…  It just dropped everything it had, all at once and now it’s naked.

Bet it’s embarrassed about that.

Well, thanks to that, Paisley was able to enjoy her first pile-jumping day.  The leaves are stacked so high that in some areas that it almost reached her chest.  Since I was elated to have completed my finals today AND receiving an A on an IEP (if you’re a teacher you know what this is) development I had been ripping my hair out over, I thought it would be nice to enjoy the day with my puppies.  Paisley was doing belly flops into the leaves, Faith was worrying as usual and Yuri was just trying to stay out of it.

FaithIcon: De weaves awe so high!  I was afwaid she would get wost!

JainaIcon: Some days, I wish she would get lost out there, but that’s only when she’s acting like a maniac… Because, people– I’m tired.  We all are, I don’t know if it’s because we’re out of practice or because she’s a mix of two really energetic breeds– or both.  I don’t know.  I’m just tired.  I can’t keep up with her.

FaithIcon: I can.

JainaIcon: Not by much.  You’re not a puppy anymore you know.

FaithIcon: Why do you say dese huwtful tings?

JainaIcon: Sorry– you’re very energetic and all, but you’re a… Mature dog, she’s got a ridiculous amount of energy.

FaithIcon: Yeah… Dat is twue… I’m always tiwed when we go to bed.

JainaIcon: Exactly.

Spending time with them this afternoon was fun though and I’m glad I had the time to do it.  It was really nice out, the sun was shining and my puppies were having a good day.  And now that I don’t have 600 hundred papers due all at the same time, I’m able to enjoy it.  And take pictures.

    Just thought I’d stop by … I never want to intrude on your blog; but you love dogs and so do I. Loved the little video clip. Hoping you and the ‘beasts’ have a good weekend.

    Here’s a little clip I finally put together of Sandy … you might have seen a little of it before. He’s my little buddy!

      Oh, never feel like you’re intruding. We’re excited to see that people come to the blog and sad when they don’t leave comments. Makes us feel like we’re boring. So, we’re always happy to hear from people! And always happy to see what’s going on with other fuzzy people!
