That is the highlight of the end of autumn. I would let the kids play in the leaves as long as they promised to leave a mess so I could rake. Raking is my favorite outdoor chore.

Well, in that case, maybe I can persuade you to come over and rake ours? ;-)

I’m sorry but I must ask this. When asked what breed Solha is, do you say Afgan Hound? Being new to leaves she looked a little wary until June joined her, then she smiled. She has learned so many new exciting things since she found Jake and was adopted.

Make no mistake: Solha wanted no part of the leaf adventure, but Jake — a.k.a. Cesar Milan of the south — made her do it, admonishing her with vocal cues when she tried to flee. We don’t really know what her breed is, but a blog reader once pointed out that she looks at least part Akbash, a livestock guarding dog known for its independence/intellect.

And how many ticks did you pull off them? :) They are SO bad up here! They both look SO happy!

I didn’t even think to check for ticks.

Who had the most fun? June? Shola? Jake? or Jessie taking the pictures? What a great way to spend a sunny afternoon!! The picture of June in the leaves is precious (Number 5) – along with the one of her looking into the pumpkin. The two together would make a lovely display Jessie.

Ha, ha, I think June had the most fun, by far. Solha: Not so much.

You just wrote you first graphic mini novel! Seriously it’d make a cute kids book, not to mention that it’s totally adorable and just about made me tear up. Thanks for sharing!

Best. Story. Ever. Our friends here in Portland have an Akbash – beautiful dog, but he’s huge! Practically a small pony.

I didn’t even notice it was June until her 4th picture…. knew Solha’s true feelings by his 4th, LOL. Great pictures!
