There is something about fall clean-up time that I love and I can’t quite put my paw on it as to why that is yet? Perhaps it is simply the fact that I get to be outside more while Nancy cleans up the leaves? Maybe it is watching her enjoy her new found garage sale pruning tool to trim all the buckthorn bushes & other trees? I was with her for quite awhile while she trimmed a plum tree until she made me go inside in case a branch fell on me. I think she needs to stop obsessing about protecting me. After all, I am almost 6 years old now…..that is like an adult in human years.😉
Actually, I think it is the welcoming chill in the air that only a true midwestern dog can appreciate! As long as Nancy doesn’t drag out those ridiculous dog sweaters, I totally enjoy this cooler weather. Maybe I should design some dog coats/sweaters that a dog would actually like? The coat would have plenty of pockets for treats AND a huge pocket to place a ball of choice. Yup, now that would be a welcome coat/sweater with such important necessities!
Why don’t you humans try to think like a dog once in awhile? We sure do enjoy the beauty all around us and we don’t go looking for a better life than we already have. Sure, I do know that many dogs don’t get quite as spoiled as I am; but, I can assure you that other dogs have the art of the moment mastered no matter where they are. Those moments of pure joy and peace – I have witnessed them myself, as well as, observing my housemates experiencing them. Sometimes those living the moment AHA moments come out of nowhere. So, be ready, live in the moment!
