Monday Musings

The autumn days are rapidly moving along and

those recent snowbanks have melted away,

leaving a holiday scene of leaves and Harper wondering why there’s a strange man waving at us.

We finally had our first photography outing without a stroller and Harper was thrilled to finally be able to explore the paths and get her feet dirty.

At nine months old, Harper and I are still learning to read each others signals and I’m not sure if this shot meant she needed a rest or if she wanted us to sign up for a yoga class together.

I was thrilled we managed to make it through the adventure without tripping or falling off a dock into the icy water.

    Definitely a shoulder season right now. Harper is growing fast and am glad she is adjusting to being out in the world. So much to explore!

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ It was wonderful to see her march through the parks without a worry, except wondering why she could not explore a few more paths and spend more time visiting with other dogs.πŸ™‚

        Whoops. Maybe a little less chasing turkeys. I’m sure she won’t stay on the naughty list for long.
