It's Fall!

Hello everypup, kitty, and GG, Tasha here today. Eva and I are such happy pups today! The temperatures have been down to around 50 degrees here for the last week or so. Fall is definitely here. The picture below was taken just a little over a week ago.
Here are those same trees today. The leaves were very pretty, but now they are all gone!
Dad is doing his fall duties of cleaning up after all of our trees. Look at the wonderful pile of leaves that he made for us today in the back yard!
I just love to dive into a pile of leaves! It isn't as good as a big pile of snow, but for now it will do. Here's a picture of my dopey little sister as she takes a break from running through the leaves.

Here's me checking out all of the wonderful smells that go along with a pile of leaves. There is hints of squirrel, bunny, and all kinds of good stuff in here!

Hey, Eva, how much poop do you think we hid in this pile?!?!?

I don't know what got into us, but yes, we did sit still long enough to have our picture taken. Dad was totally amazed. Always got to keep the humans confused!

Here are a couple of videos of us playing in the leaves. This first one is of Eva with her ball. As some of you probably know, Eva only plays with one ball. She had this one tennis ball that she had ripped off the covering and that was the only one she would play with. That's right, she had de-furred it! Click here to see our post about here bald ball. She has finally picked out a ball with the fur still on it. It took a lot of encouragement from dad, but she now plays with a normal tennis ball. Me on the other hand will play with a stick, small tennis balls, big tennis ball, basket ball, nubby ball, and a puppy frisbee. Just play with me already!! Anyway, here's Eva's video.

Can you tell that I love leaf piles? Eva and I help dad mulch the leaves. We're always here to help!! Hope all of are friends are having as good a weekend as we are! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

That was a great face dive into the leaves after the furry ball!!!! I've never played in a pile of leaves. Dad always sucks them up with the grass cutter so we don't get the piles here. But it sure looks like fun!!!

How busy you have been: Not just in the garden but you have put up loads of blog posts too. By the way I don't Eva is dopey. That's not very kind. Apart from anything else none of my girlfriends are dopey. They are all beautiful and intelligent just like you two.

You girls are so cute! You look like you were having fun with the pile of leaves. It has been raining in PGH so the leaves in our backyard are still pretty soggy. Maybe daddy will pile them up when they dry out & Juneau & I can play in them, too. Thanx for the well wishes for Jueanu. He's doing great. Stop by to see how funny he looks in his lampshade.
PeeEss - when you do stop by, don't furget to sign our guestbook.

The orange tree it so pretty. And now all those leaves. You'all had fun! Be sure to tell your dad we enjoyed the videos.

I can't wait to get the okay to get back in my window now that I'm fixed. And my lampshade is off a lot more than it's on.

Wow! Do you think we could come over tomorrow and jump in those leaves? It looks like a lot of fun and we don't have leaves all over the ground for our dad to pile up.

Woo two grrrls look like woo had lots of fun in the leaves. We only get live oak leaves and they aren't big & soft like yours, they're small & sharp and kinda cup shaped so they fill up with water and really aren't much fun to play in. That's okay though, we still stay plenty busy having fun & diggin in the sand.

I know Dot Spot is my #1 gal but I gotta tell ya...seeing Tasha jump in those leaves like that sent my heart a flutter! I love romping in the leaves and my tail wags just like Tasha's when my whole head is buried!

Fall is great fun!
