Happy Harvest Time!

Yesterday, I went apple picking with my human family. Actually they went picking, I just enjoyed smelling all the fallen apples. I even got to eat some apple...I do love apples! This is a good time of year, when all the yummy food gets collected and I get to try lots of new things! I wonder what will you be harvesting?

Below is one of my early fall paintings, doesn't it look like yummy apples hanging among the green leaves of an apple tree?

Not a Prince

I found a toad in the backyard! I tried to get it to play, but it was more interested in squishing down in the grass and pretending to be a rock. Not even a kiss made it move, neither did it turn into a cute Chihuahua prince! or is it a frog that turns into a prince? I will have to find a frog and let you know.

My human put the toad in the garden, because he said it eats bugs. I will get to see it next time I visit the garden, maybe it will play with me then!

I will not be posting for a few human is leaving to teach in Vermont this weekend, so I get a little vacation. See you next week!

Lots of licks,

I wanna play with the fuzzy!

I discovered that there was a fuzzy creature that lives in the bathroom upstairs. No one told me about it, but one I heard it and went to check it out. Unfortunately, it must have done something wrong, because it is in jail.

Now I visit it regularly and wish I could let it out to play. It is the same color as me, but much much smaller. I didn't know there could be fuzzies smaller than me. Sometimes the humans here let it have exercise time and it runs around in clear ball. It must have done something really bad to never be free from some kind of prison.

It hasn't told me what it did yet, actually it doesn't talk at all. I mostly sleeps actually. But, if you were in jail all the time, wouldn't you sleep all the time too?

It makes me appreciate the freedoms I have, because I could be locked in a cage or forced to run around inside a clear ball! Never take anything for granted!

Lots of licks,

Adirondack Blue!

Last weekend I went swimming for the first time! I have to admit, I was a little bit afraid at first. But my human put a life jacket on me and I got lots of yummy treats for giving it a try. I didn't like the actual swimming part so much, however, I really enjoyed riding around the pool on the floating chair! Next year my human said he wants to take me on a real boat to go riding on a lake, which he tells me is kind of like a giant swimming pool. If it is anything like riding on this comfy chair, I am all for it!

Lots of licks,

My Side of the Mountain!

On Sunday I climbed my first mountain! Here I am at the top of Panther Mountain in the New York Adirondacks. It was a pretty easy climb for me, at least I wasn't huffing and puffing like my human who guided me along. (Though I was quite tired on Monday!) Once I walked over rocks, tree roots and steep slopes, I got to the top to see a beautiful view of lakes and distant mountains. Did you know there were such things as chipmunks! I had no idea! I can't wait for the next outing...there is so much nature to be explored!

Lots of licks!
