Fall is Finally Here!

We have finally had some cooler days so we are spending a lot of time in the backyard with the boys.

    1. Squirrels are the root of all evil in our yard. If they would only slow down a little bit.

    1. Pierre can never relax when he is outside. He tries soooo hard but he hears them running in the trees and has to go investigate.

  5. The cooler weather energizes all of us, so we enjoy being out and getting wild more often than in the heat!

  11. Mew Mew hellos Miss Melissa, Pierre & Bentley! My Basset minion, Bessie, barks "Woof Woof." What she is trying to say is that you're one lucky doggie, Pierre, 'cause you get to chase squirrelygigs. Bessie is not allowed to chase the three that come to my backyard & I'm not allowed to go outside or I would chase 'em! Have fun! -Valentine (& Mom) of Noir Kitty Mews

    1. Bessie and Bentley would make a good pair because he rarely chases them either. Pierre chases them all day and all afternoon but we have LOTS of squirrels.

  14. The cool rainy (and muddy) weather has rolled in here today too. Squirrel activity is picking up too but they're after the acorns in the neighbor's yard.

    1. We don't miss the humidity when it leaves but it never stays gone very long. My hair is living proof or should I say living puff!?!

  22. You boys are so adorable. We like that you each have things to do, though it sounds like Pierre's things are a bit more active. :)
