Happy Hallowe'en...

This is a local house, which is the talk of the  town every year at this time, these people go all out and add to their display every year ( have no idea where they store all this stuff)..went to check it out on the weekend, I was outside the fence taking pics and the fellow came out and told me to come on into the yard and take pics, so I did and we had a chat..amazing stuff...enjoy!!

My family dogs...all special ..all spoilt...

Haven't posted a pic of our 'baby' for awhile, she pretty much runs the household, and we wouldn't have it any other way...
Our Kashu, is an 8 year old rescue terrier x..
For the last few years we have been getting her groomed, she doesn't mind it and there is a lot less hair around the house, earlier pics of her ( if you look under tag 'dogs') you will see her original look, the Benji type, I miss her furry 'smiles' but she enjoys her 'spa' days too!!
 Here again, is Shyla, she is a 3 year old, Shih tzu/terrier mix, our son and daughter in law's baby, she is a going concern, but gosh do we love her, and can she ever 'play us' for the treats!!
 And, of course, the gentle giant of the family, Kenya, our daughter and son in laws Boxer, what a big
goof, he is, but we love him dearly too!!
Can't imagine our life without our fur babies...they add so much to our daily lives and love us unconditionally!!

A handsome St. Bernard Pup....

At least to me, he is a pup, but a big one, we pulled into a parking spot in the mall and as I love dogs so much , am always ready to take a pic of one. Our dog was with us, so immediately they eyed each other,
I rolled down the window and started taking pics. When I had taken a few, I rolled up the window and opened the door to get out and the truck drove away! The nice man smiles back at me and left, was nice of
him to let me take pics first..wish I knew the dogs name.... oh well!! I will see him again some time...

Patiently waiting for 'take out' lunch...

This Sharp-shinned Hawk, a juvenile, I think, was not so patiently waiting on the fence at my daughters in London, On, he was tapping his toes and hoping for lunch to fly by...

(A few people think this is a Sharp-shinned Hawk rather than a Coopers Hawk, so I have changed the I.D.)

Pumpkin Perfect...

Last weekend, we headed down to London, On to visit our daughter and family, enjoyed the grandkids so much. Our son in law is a sweetheart, he drives us everywhere so we can see the sights and I can take pictures.
I had told my daughter, Jodi, that I really wanted to see a 'pumpkin patch' as I have never seen one, she said, we know where there is a few, so that was our first outing.
Loved it, so neat to see...I love fall, the colors, the coolness and the comfort foods are so enjoyed after a hot, humid summer like we had this year...
