It’s getting cooler

The weather isn’t quite as warm now, and it looks like this in the back yard.

leaf-pile

Just like dogs, our trees are shedding. They’re turning all their leaves brown and dropping them on the ground. The leaves are crackly and crunchy when you step on them.

raking

For some reason, the humans are not content to let the crunchy leaves stay on the ground. No. 2 rakes them up into big piles. Then the Klingons come along and jump into the piles and scatter them around again. This is fun to watch, except that the colors of the Klingons and the colors of the leaves are about the same, so you have to keep a wary eye out in case of sneak attack.

lazt-cats

When they’ve had their fun, they lay around and don’t even help make the piles again.

No. 2 goes away sometimes. I don’t like this. The first clue is when the suitcase comes out.

packing

All of us help him pack. The way we do it is, No. 2 puts the suitcase on the bed. The Klingons get into the suitcase. No. 1 calls out “Socks, underwear, shirts, pants!” No. 2 yells “Check!” I watch with a sinking feeling in my stomach. It’s good to have a human and a spare.

Woofs,
Willie

Hi Willie,

Welcome to DWB. I am impressed you live with all those cats and still have your eyes. The only cat I know is mean and will scratch your eyes out if you get to close. I’m a Toy Rat Terrier and have a little brother named Banjo. Our mom thinks you are adorable. Papillons are one of her favorite kinda doggies.

Wags & wiggles,
Bijou
