For my Monday Mischief I was up to my ears in leaves! If you follow me very much you would know that my gramma kind of lives in the woods. I mean she is in civilization but it is a heavily wooded neighborhood with tons of trees, squirrels, chipmunks and other critters. We love to visit Gramma because she always has treats for us and we get to see lots of critter action out her windows which are mostly right at dog level. I never met my grandpa, but I have heard he loved animals so I am betting
that since he was a builder and actually built that house he put the windows low in case a dog would ever live there. Cats don’t count since they climb and lay on top of everything so window height is not an issue for them.
Anyway, because of all the trees, gramma has lots of leaves which her neighbor usually takes care of for her. She does not have them bagged, just piles them up in certain areas of the yard. Gramma doesn’t have
much of a lawn because it is too shady, so no worries about the grass dying under the leaves. Well, one day when we were out visiting, mom took me out to play in the leaves and she took her camera along too.
It was so much fun jumping into the leaves! They were so deep that I almost disappeared! I am pretty short, you know! Then there are those sneaky squirrels racing around in the trees storing their food for the winter – I felt like I was hiding in the leaves
and was hoping to jump out and capture one of those furry tailed guys but no such luck. Mom just watched me and snapped away with her camera. She got some good shots of me with the pretty colors and also my total focus on squirrels.
My sister did not come out to play with us since she does not like getting dirty or messy. She would not like to be in the leaves, I could care less if I am a mess as long as I am having a good time!
Thanks gramma for letting me go out and play in your leaves, it was really fun! Sorry I tracked so many into the house but those leaves just stick to my fur like glue!
