Rich in color, each Autumn day is a gift.

It's that time of year again, time for fairs, pumpkins, apple cider and beautiful Fall foliage.  Autumn is our favorite season, and it's definitely my favorite time to head outside for pictures with the collies.  There is just something about the colors of Fall that compliment the collies. Autumn decorations and colors seem by design to frame the collies and highlight their beauty.

And the cooler Autumn temperatures suit the collies, as both the smooth and rough collie are double-coated.  I can see their joy and relief in the change in temperature, as they are more active,and greet each day with wagging tails and games of tag.

They are enjoying the cooler weather so much that they are reluctant to come inside!  They love being outside, and going for long walks, which means they are encouraging me to get outside more.  And as soon as the leaves start changing color, we will be heading out on long hikes, to take in all the stunning foliage here in New England.

Even Pumpkin kitty is hanging outside with us, and she even wanted to pose for some Autumn pictures.  She watched me photographing the collies, and came over to join in the fun!

Before long the snow will be blanketing the ground, the bare trees will be glistening with ice, and the air will be bitter cold.  So each day of Fall we celebrate the season with gratitude, and try not to take a single day for granted.  Dogs are great at reminding of us to live in the moment, and enjoy every second we have together.  And Autumn, with it's glorious burst of color, is truly a celebration of life.

So from the collies and myself, we hope you are spending as much time as possible outside, enjoying the weather and the gorgeous scenery with your four-footed best friends!

Abby wanted to ask, "What is your favorite thing to do in the Fall?"


  1. Hi, What a wonderful post and I think the fall colors really shine behind your Collies. Loved all your pics. We fly to Boston tomorrow, then drive to New Hampshire for the night, Main for two nights, New Hampshire again, Vermont, the Berkshires in Ma., then the last night near Logan Airport. It will be a whirlwind of a trip, but oh so fun. This is our third trip-the last one was 14 yrs ago, but I've never been to your beautiful state...don't know why either.
    Sending wags and hugs your way.

  2. Those are some beautiful shots of the pups with the fall decorations. Mom loves mums but doesn't have much luck with them in pots. She needs to pay more attention to her watering:)

  4. What beautiful autumn pictures! Autumn is our favorite season too and we LOVE our walks!

  5. Dear Abby and person,

    Our favorite thing to do in the fall is sniff! And run! And lie in the sun!

    You all look very lovely in the Fall, as does your Cat friend. I think I look lovely in the Fall too. My colors are a bit like yours!

    We love the Fall very much as well, and we too remind our person every day to be grateful. Enjoy your Fall!


  6. We have gotten a little too cool - below freezing temps tonight, so the pugs are not too happy. Should be back to more normal fall temps by the weekend

  7. OMD, you gots your very own hay bale??!! Oh, I am soooo jealous! You puppers look so FABulous in your fall setting, and I gots to say, I don't thinks I would even bark at pumpkin kitteh! BOL! (okays, that's a lie..yes I would ☺) Ma loooooves the fall, butts truth be told, we don't usually gets a fall until November. This can be the hottest time of the year around here! It's still in the 80's, butts at least the nights are cooler, so that makes it a bit easier to take!
    Happy adventures guys, and make sure your Moms takes lots of pics!
