Hello, is that CHEESE?

Hello there. Is that Cheese I smell in your pocket?


Yes please, I would like some Cheese! Look at how nicely I sit and wait for Cheese!


Pee. Ess. To any humans reading this, did you know that us Dogs smell in stereo? Each of our nostrils captures scent separately, just like each of our ears do! If you look at the first photo of me up above, you'll see that my nose is angled to one side with my right nostril pointing at the Cheese, even though my face is straight on. Aren't we Dogs amazing?

My person says to watch this video if you're interested in learning more about our noses and how we smell in stereo!

The rains have started! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

The rains have started!


The plants and grasses and trees are breathing a sigh of relief!


At the same time, the plants and trees are getting ready for Winter. The leaves are on the ground as they get ready to go to sleep for the year.

But most exciting is that all of the smells that dried up all summer are now moist and very strong! It is a very good time of year for sniffing! We like walking in the Fall.

The beaches are for Dogs again! (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

The Beaches are BACK!


All summer most of the Beaches are for the people only. But now it is something called October and so the Beaches are for people AND Dogs again! Hurray!


We love the Beach. Do you have a Beach?

Yellow fall sunshine and an early morning Walk

This morning we went for a magical, early morning Walk.


Everything was yellow! And the sun was in our eyes.


But the air was still and calm.

The magic was in the smells of the night creatures, still fresh on the ground.
The magic was in the sparkle of sunlight in the drops of early morning dew.
The magic was in the shimmery spiderwebs and dancing grasses.

(And the magic was in this pile of deer poop. Look, I found deer poop!)


Soon the rain will start and we will not see sunshine for a very long time. For now, we closed our eyes and breathed in the magic of the early morning sun.

Me (by Ojo)

Hi hi hi! Ojo here!

This is ME.
In the fall sunshine.
With a cold breeze.
Under the oak trees.
Among the tall grasses.
That hide the tasty bunny poops.

I think I am the most beautiful thing in the picture, don't you? Even better than the bunny poops tucked into the grass!

Fall is here

This part of Fall is very good. Nature is making sunshine, but also cool air and even colder breezes.


There has been rain, and the awful smoke from the wildfires has gone away. However everything is still dry enough for hanging out outside.


The air is ten to fifteen degrees colder than it was two weeks ago, and this is a relief for us with fur coats! (Our person, however, is now wearing multiple layers plus a jacket!)


I hope Fall decides to keep the weather like this for just a little while longer!
