Autumn Truly Arrives...

The languid, sunny days of summer have departed, and we Irish peasant-dogs are settling down for a long, cold period of "fur-coat development!" Buster's working on his precious beard, and we girls are growing that soft, blue-gray winter coiffure.

What happens when the days get short? It's time to huddle inside with good friends...

Nothing like Purple-Raffie (one of precisely three stuffed giraffes of different colors) to provide companionship and solid conversation! Bailey has her treasures.

The sumac is turning bright red outside, and the granite soil of Connecticut provides colors that Claude Monet would envy.

Persephone does the only honorable thing when confronted with frosty weather: it's time to become a couch-potato!

Dad's favorite fishing-spot on the Farmington River is getting some color.

But trout love cold water! Don't worry--it's catch-and-release. This one swam away right after the photo-opportunity.

Buster has a date with Wabbit.

And the Mimosa on campus has turned a bright yellow!

That's all for now!

G'day Persephone & Buster,
We love autumn colours. We live in a part of Australia where there is actually a change in the trees as well. Kind of rare for Oz.
Thanks for showing us the lovely trees and for stopping by our blog. It's nice to meet you both.
We used to have a Kerry Blue friend but she moved away.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy
