I'd like to share with you a fall photo from last year.  This little guy, I called him Cedar, lived with us for only three weeks.  He was brain damaged and got progressively worse, to the point of constant spinning. It was a heart-breaking decision, but euthanizing him was the most humane thing to do.  A sad reality that not all rescues end happily.

The grass is almost completely covered in leaves which makes for some nice background, which got me thinking of Cedar and the above photo, so I decided to share.
Yesterday, we told you about the wonderful, warm and sunshiny day we had.  Since it was so nice, we spent the afternoon in the yard (some of that time in a lawn chair in the sunshine, with a book!)  

Bill was very happy to hang out in the sunshine, as always!


Some of the leaves are the typical fall colors, while others are green with some yellow.

You can see in the above picture that Breeze is much bigger than Brook, even though Brook is two years old and Breeze is six months old.  It's interesting that when Forest was six months old, Brook and him were exactly the same size.  Breeze who weighs 41 pounds, has been bigger than Forest for about a month now.

Late afternoon sunshine....

The day after these photos were taken, the weather changed back to a typical cold, rainy fall day and now we are starting to feel the effects of Hurricane Sandy.  Lots of rain and high winds.  Be safe if you are in the east!


  1. Cedar looked so peaceful in the leaves, thanks for sharing. Your pack looks like they were enjoying the day, they're all so happy!

    1. They all love being outside, especially if they have a human audience for their silly antics!

    What lovely leaves. I like the picture of Cedar last year too, I am sure you made his weeks with you very loving ones.

    1. Would you like some of our leaves?! We got lots and now they are soaked with rain. It's going to be a while before they are gone.

  3. Poor little Cedar...thank you for loving him to to the end. Your pack looks wonderful and HAPPY!!

    1. That's the thing about rescue, isn't it? You do what you can for those that need it.

  4. Lovely pics, happy dogs :)
