Walking the Dog(s)

There is nothing better on a sunny autumn afternoon
than taking the dogs for a walk....
and nothing they like better.

The call went out...
"Who wants to go for a walk?"
20 paws hit the ground running...
heading out the door to the driveway.

Hickory even brought her favorite toy elephant.
(Apparently she never before played with toys. 
Now at 15 she is acting more like a puppy.
I think she likes her new life.)

Maddie watched,


as Oakley and Sam rough-housed in the yard.


The excitement got the best of her,

and she leaped into the middle of the action.


Silly pups!


We loaded up baby Tyler and headed down the driveway.
Amanda and Jenn,
Tyler,
pups,
and me (with camera in hand).

The afternoon was cool, crisp and clear.
There are so few of these left this year.
Very soon it will turn much colder,
bringing winter winds and snows.


Sadie and Hickory brought up the rear.
Sadie's motto has always been "no man left behind".
She always falls into the end of the line
 in order to make sure we all stick together.
The most important thing in her life is her family.
She is a true and loyal friend.





































A good walk always makes everyone sleep better.



I think Sam is a happy boy.


He just adores his new pal Oakley.
