Frosted dog

The cooler weather has given Oscar a new lease of life.

He’s always ready to play a game of ball…

Play with me copy

Look at those ears flapping in the autumn sunshine —

“We have lift off!” they seem to be saying.

Frosty dog copy

Another fun game is hiding in the leaves

And hoping I won’t be able to find him.

(We’ll be out in the autumn sun, so please excuse me if I don’t get around to visiting you all this weekend.)

  6. That is one happy dog. Great shots. I especially like the one where Oscar is camouflaged among the leaves. Oh, that reminds me, I need to go outside and rake up the fallen leaves – Dang it!!!
