Autumn* is here...

... and with it, misty mornings...

...for us to play Hounds of the Baskervilles to our hearts' content :)

We have eerie effect with rising suns, mist and water

and you can always find a good stick to chew
(although the health and safety brigade don't like this, but they will have to catch me first!)

* That's Fall to our American friends :) and anyway, it is more like winter now

Second Wind

All was quiet for a little while until Chips got her second wind and decided to see how far down into a can of catfood a dog tongue could reach...

but somehow, I got caught in the photo and somehow I had a guilty looking face, when clearly only Chips is capable of jumping up onto the kitchen unit.

Then, TJam found a half empty box of mushrooms, and Chips licking her lips.

And TJam was shaking her head at dogs getting their second, bin raiding wind at the ripe old age of 10 (Chips is 10 you know!)...

when she saw this. A chest print the size of a 22kg collie cross - as individual as a finger print - up against the kitchen unit. Since Chips makes a clean spring onto any height, and I just go up on my back legs, I was clearly busted.

I know when I'm beaten your honour.

Duty Calls

When my big friend Beanz is scared of fireworks or our fire popping, I make her feel more secure by tucking her into her bed and keeping her there.

She is quite a comfy bed.
