This past weekend we were really busy! We all went to Bailie’s last tracking class, we visited Gramma, and we visited cousin Lena. One of the fun things we got to do on our journey was to go out and play in Gramma’s leaves. Since Gramma lives in an area with heavy tree coverage, she always has a ton of leaves piled up. I’m not afraid, so I waded right into the pile!
Holy Milkbones, I’m up to my ears in leaves here!
Bailie was doing some serious leaf diving and when she came up for some air, her hair was sure a mess!
Oh boy, you should have a sniff of these leaves. I can smell all kinds of good stuff in here!
Bailie was sniffing in her own pile of leaves for a while. Being a tracking dog, she really wanted to get up and go, but Mom told her to stay put.
Hanging out in the leaves sure if fun, even if they almost bury me completely! I think I may see a squirrel over there. I bet he doesn’t see me in my leaf camouflage!
Bailie really enjoyed her first real fall time in the leaves too. Last year she was too young to really hang out in the giant leaf piles. Thank you Gramma for letting us hang out in your leaves for a while!
Just a reminder, today is election day! If you are a human, go to your polling place to vote, if you are a pet and voting for Mayor of Blogville click here to vote, but…
Remember to VOTE!
Ellen Shedlarz says
I vote for Emma and Bailie for Governor and Mayor!
Oh my, I don’t know if I would have time to add more work to my schedule, but thanks for the support. I’m considering running for the White House in 2016 since there won’t be any other good candidates to choose from. I may need cat bro Bert as a running mate for the cat vote.
Molly The Wally says
Leaves are fun but peeps says she is fed up with picking them up indoors. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly
My mom keeps thinking someone puked or pooped, but it is just another leaf in the house!
That looks like so much fun!
It was lots of fun and lots of good smells.
Reilly & Denny says
falling leaves are o beautiful and make such a great crunching noise
We love that crunching on our walks.
Oz the Terrier says
I never get to play in a pile of leaves. The leaves don’t fall off the trees here. 🙁 It looks like it is lots of fun though! Glad you and Bailie had a great time.
I could gather up a Hefty lawn bag full of leaves and send it to you. We have more than enough here.
Maria Sadowski says
Beautiful photos! We have the same problem as Oz – my dogs have never seen a pile of leaves. I bet they’d like it, though.
They make great crunchy noises and there are tons of good smells too!
Sparkle the PBGV says
What fun!! We do not have many leaves that fall, but recently I have been bringing leaves into the house. I do not understand why the mom picks them up and puts them in the trash. XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
They stick to my fur like crazy, so we have lots of indoor leaves too.
It's Dog or Nothing says
So many leaves! We’re happy to be on the east coast for a bit to enjoy the fall leaves.
We have plenty at our house, but Gramma has extreme leaf piles. Enjoy your time out east.
My friend that lives here, told me a funny story the other day. She has two dogs who hang out in her backyard. She couldn’t find either of them, then noticed they had buried themselves in the leaf pile in the corner.
That could happen easily, especially at Gramma’s house. Last year Bailie didn’t get to play in the huge piles because she was so small.
Emily @ Adventures of a Dog Mom says
And, I thought we had a lot of leaves!
Gramma basically lives in a forest, so there are extreme piles, especially next to the driveway.
Frankie and Ernie says
WE love to play in leaves too…. YOU Do have a BUNCH of them… HOW FUN.
OMD WE VOTED … and when we left We went to Chef Sasha’s Foodables truck and had PIZZA and CAKE and Snacks… We can hardly wait to see who the new Mayor of Blogville will be… BUTT like Mr. Bailey and Hazel said…. BLOGVILLE is the Big Winner beclaws we will have a super Mayor no matter who it is…
Do you like to ROLL in the Leaves??? Do they Cling to your furs???
We voted earlier too. Leaves are great fun and they stick to my furs like magnets, so we have lots of leaves in the house too!
Dogs N Pawz says
Beautiful pics! We have lots of leaves too and love to play in them! Mommy says we make a big mess with them:(
We make a mess too, but it is part of the fun of fall.
Will and Eko says
You’ve found the perfect hiding spot to wait for unsuspecting rabbits.
Wabbits and squirrels 🙂
Did you have to get brushed after that? We would have to. Mom says something about leaves that I don’t think I am allowed to repeat. It sure looks like you had a fun day. Your ears are might long, Emma! your doodle friend, Dash
No need for brushing. I just had to pick off a few leaves but that was all.
M. K. Clinton says
I was thinking as I read your leaf story that you could hide in those leaves and spring up to scare a squirrel. That way, the squirrel would faint and you could whack it! We voted. ♥ XXOO, Bentley
I have to catch a squirrel one of these days, that may be a plan.
That looks like lots of fun! All of our leaves went missing!
Where did they go???
Love the fall pictures! Did you get to do some tracking in the leaves?
Bailie does tracking in all weather and season. Since the tracks are a minimum of a few hundred yards, they are not done in the yard, but there are leaves out in some areas she tracks in. Once she gets her TD title she will move on to other environments like a woods where there would be many more leaves. We did nose work in the leaves, though.
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says
Oh wow! I love those beautiful fall photos!!!
I vote for YOU! BOL!
ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!
Thank you, we love the leaves!
Jan K says
Leaves, leaves, leaves. Glad to see you and Bailie having fun in them, Emma, but I’m getting really tired of raking them! 🙂
I got out and voted today!
At our house we don’t have nearly as many, so we don’t bother raking them. Glad you voted!
Whitley Westie says
Playin in leaves sure are fun!
Isn’t it great!
Two French Bulldogs says
Grammars leaves look like the best part of the trip
Lily & Edward
It was for me the best, but watching squirrels and chipmunks at cousin Lena’s house was pretty nice too.
Mom really loves leaves and use to have piles when a kid. I (Mica) just walk through them to get to swimming. Looks like you 2 are having a lot of fun!
My mom says they used to jump in piles as kids all the time too!
That’s a whole load of leaves, looks like great fun!
Gramma has a leaf mine of sorts living with all those trees!
OMD I have never seen so many leaves, what fun. We have been AWOL like forever butt wez back now, Have missed you xxoxxx
Mollie and Alfie
We’ve been wondering what is up. We have seen you appear once and then disappear. Glad to hear you are back.
2 Brown Dawgs says
What nice big leaf piles! We thought hubby was going to have a pile of leaves to rake here, but the big wind on Halloween must have blown them all away….lol.
Gramma has all the leaves. We don’t have so many at my house.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Oh Emma, I am so jealous! We planted Magnolias, Dogwoods, and Crepe Myrtles so we don’t have many leaves. We wait for our neighbors leaves to fall and he lets us play in his. We’re still waiting – it’s taking a long time this year.
We had a few hard frosts which really accelerated the whole process. At our house we don’t have that many leaves, so we go to Gramma’s for leaf fun.
Maxwell, Faraday & Allie says
Sure looks like our yard too – the fall’s been so mild the leaves are dropping in trickles instead of all at once, which means loads and loads of mulching, every spare moment! Our neighbor threatened to cut all her trees down, she’s so sick of it! MOL!
We don’t have so many at home, but Gramma has plenty for us to play in.
karen Meldrum says
leaves smell so good – so many different smells, and they are WARM to snuggle into. Wish Dad would let us into the piles – he mulches them and outs them in mom’s composter.
Bummer you can’t hop around in them a bit before he smashes them all up. It is a lot of fun.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Awesome pictures. I love pictures with pretty leaves in them. Luckily you didn’t have to rake all those leaves.
It is perfect, we get to visit them and play in them but don’t have any work associated with them.
Ann "Paws" Staub says
Whoa! Look at all of those leaves! We never really get that many leaves here… then again there aren’t so many trees in our yard either.
We don’t have as many leaves at our house either, but Gramma lives in a forest like area, so there are trees everywhere which means a ton of leaves.
That looks like fun! There are loads of leaves!
Don;t get lost in those leaves!
They are super deep, aren’t they?
