Yesterday, I got to go on a bonus walk with my mom. I started a new nose work class with just me and Mom. I’ve always had class with at least one of my sisters, but we lost a spot in the class we were all in, and my instructor suggested I go into a class on my own with other dogs. The city resurfaced the asphalt walkways around our area this week, so we are not able to walk much because Mom doesn’t want our paws on that stuff for a few days. Since we were out and about for my class, we took a little bonus walk.
It was cloudy and cool, some leaves were turning, and the trees along the trail sure gave us a fall feeling! Please excuse my beard in this photo. I was sniffing in the leaves and some of them stuck in my furs.
Last week we had a lot of rain, well, nothing compared to those in the path of Florence, but several inches is still a lot. The creek was flooding over it’s banks, so we couldn’t get passed this point where I was sitting. I wanted to jump in and swim, but Mom said I couldn’t because of the extra currents.
We went up by the railroad tracks, but it is not safe to walk along them, or hang out up there, so we took one photo of me and headed back into the woods.
Although it was only about a twenty minute walk, it was still a fun, fall, mommy and me, bonus walk. Getting out into nature is always fun! Have a super fun weekend! We are looking at some frost around these parts, and my silly sisters are going to hunt rats I hear. Me, I’ll be putting my paws up by the fireplace, and looking for some cozy, snuggling time.

A bonus walk sounds like fun and your photos are wonderful!
Thank you. We had a good time.

That sounds like a great extra walk. Your beard looks great with some extra leaves in it. BOL! XXOO
Thankfully, some of the stuff fell off before the photo. Rather embarrassing!

Fall definitely goes well with my furs.

Ah, the best part of fall….bonus walks and then snuggling by the fire! Even on days we can’t do long walks, Luke and I just enjoy getting out even if it’s only for 15-20 minutes, especially this time of year when it’s so comfortable (though we’ve already had a couple of really chilly morning walks recently!.
We are loving the cool weather. All of us are super energized by it.

Not quite chilly time here yet. We had one morning earlier in the week, but we’re back to warm again.
Love all your photos, especially the one with the leaves in your beard! Shadow usually brings the leaves into the house with her. (But I don’t mind. They’re big ones that pick up easily.)
Madison and I always drag in leaves, but Mom is used to it. We have frost this morning, super nice.

What a nice walk for the two of you.
That looks like a really nice walk! We’re looking forward to spending some time in nature next weekend–it’s always nice to get away from the usual neighborhood walks, especially when there are all of the wonderful fall scenes!
We rotate our long walks in the morning so we don’t do them more than once every two weeks, but it is always fun to go to completely different places.

Pets really enjoy bonus walks. I can’t stress enough how beautiful it feels to walk in the nature. It looks like your 20 minutes walk has turned so much fun. The pics prove it.
Any walk is a good walk in our books!
