A Fall Day with A+A

SO it is a beautiful fall day in New England( it is going to rain later, but that is later and this is now) and we are not going to have too many days left to play in our favorite place the Arboretum,(we have a feeling this is going to be a bad winter) and we haven't posted all week so we thought we would go play there and take tons of pictures...so this will make up for no blog in a week as we have a lot to show you..... And fall in New England is one of the greatest things ever!!!!The colors are BRILLIANT right now!!!!!!! And it will not be long before all the leaves fall off...(boo hoo)







This is the little hill we climbed to get to the woods.......


Still climbing.....

Ta Da !! Here we are!! See a lot of leaves have already fallen....We were really crunching(well PL2 more than us) when we walked.....


I immediately "went to ground" because tomorrow is my big event earthdog day(it may rain and then we are not going but I have mentally prepared myself so I won't get too upset,and Archie said if it does rain we can just stay in and eat popcorn and play board games..)


Little sucker went to the other side of the tree....doesn't he know who I am??? The GREAT EARTHDOG AGATHA "J"(maybe soon to be JE but maybe not........)

OK traveling on in the woods...




Hold on...we have to scan something here.......



WAIT A MINUTE HERE.......CHIPMUNK ALERT CHIPMUNK ALERT.......





WAIT OVER THERE...............A COYOTE?????????????????? Nah........


Traveling on deeper into our woods............Arch was fascinated by that tree..who knows why....

OK now we traveling down the woods and are going to end up by the little swimming brook that I LOVE in the summer.......



Before we got there though we found this little plant and the 3 of us were fascinated by it as it was soo different but we don't know what it is.....


Still going down to the little brook.....



There it it is on the right...WHOA there is barely any water in it!!!!!!! We took the great Sophina La Brador there...ah the days of summer..........


Here we are in absolute scanning mode......you have to be really really quiet to scan and listen.....


video


so then we were out of the woodsy part and were going to walk up this path to go to the Conifer path..and PL2 said well now we can have this..............
APPLE!! Our favorite!!!!!!!(Archie was so excited he is laughing in this picture!!) there was a few problems however...PL2 got apple all over the camera and Archie sort of licked the camera as well so some of the following pictures maybe a little gooey or applely or blurry......


This is the 2 of us after eating our apple....See how happy we are??!!!!


video


Look at the yellow of this tree!!!!

Oh this kid was a RIOT!!! His name was Chico and guess where he was from PUERTO RICO!!! He was only a baby(4 months old) and he was already bilingual Of course did PL2 get a picture while we were chatting??? No only as he was walking away...geesh....


Hold on for another minute.....scanning...scanning.......


video


Checking out the pee mail(we were about a week behind in our reading.....)




You know what this is!!! We affectionately call it COYOTE PATH!!!!!!!!! Not one sighting since that famous day.......Of course if PL2 meets people here this is the first thing out of her mouth .ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the way out we saw this..and a light bulb went off in BOTH of our heads!!!! THIS IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO NEXT YEAR!! But for dogs not people!!! We can show them the best roaching spots, and where the famous Lenny and Sophie walked(Arch is thinking of putting in a golden pathway) and where the chipmunks are and where PL1 saw the coyote!! WHAT A GREAT IDEA!! Archie said we could wear little tour guide hats and everything!!!!! So instead of being sad when we left we were all pumped up!!!!!!

I wonder where you live, ah I see it now, Boston, the capital of breathtaking fall foliage!
You guys are so close to nature and beauty, I wish I was there to stroll with you in the forest.
Please come visit me to share my happiness, I have to shout out loud my love, I'm deeply in love, buddy!
I'd like you to visit Dino, a friend of mine in Taiwan, the new post was about a poor pug that so touching that my eyes leaked

Sophie Brador said...

I would have loved to gone on that walk with you two today. It looks so pretty right now. It was raining here all day today. Started about 11 am here, but it seems to be all finished now and getting kind of warm again. I sure hope it passes through Boston really fast so you can get your E, Ags.

Niamh said...

You two will make great tour guides since you know all the interesting places to go. Your arboretum is beautiful with all the colors. Our trees don't get so pretty here in NC.

Good luck at your earthdog trial Agatha. I will hope for no rain for you.

Your friend,
Niamh

Molly and Taffy said...

Fabulous photos of the Autumnal colours. We love running through the leaves and chasing them when the wind whips them up.

Quite a lot of our leaves have fallen already here in UK, such a shame. Hooman hates Winter so is all grumpy.

Jackson said...

Hey pals, when I do that scanning thing it usually means I'm about to start RUNNING and CHASING squirrels. I was sooooo close to catching one yesterday, I had the tip of its tail in my mouth. J1 is SUCH a spoilsport though. J x

Toffee said...

Well it is 10:39 on Sunday...and it is NOT raining!!! So I can only assume that you are well on your way to earning your "E" Agatha!!...we are sending good vibes your way! Good luck!

What a great walk you took to "sharpen your senses"...that walk I am sure will be key to you getting your "E" - hey that rhymes! tee hee.

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

You two would make great tour guides for the Arboretum! Your fall colors are spectacular! It's really too bad that autumn seems to be the shortest season!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Stanislaw said...

How fun! I so wish I had an Arbo-EAT-em near me. The leaves here in Chicago have almost all made their jump and there haven't been many good colors. Mom says she misses fall in Boston! Enjoy it!

Joe Stains said...

It looks so beautiful!! We hope you did well at your Earth Dog event!!!

Thanks for the fall photos since we don't have fall here!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That is just beautiful. We don't have any pretty leaves. They are falling off the trees but they are just brown. Some are even still green. Of course Callie doesn't care she loves chewing on them anywya...


Big Sloppy Kisses

the 4 Bs said...

hi A&A, that was a great walk that you took us on. your park is really beautiful at this time of year. we would love for you to take us on the tour in person / dog. that would be so much fun. but we have to learn to scan like you do. what we do pretty well is bark! and run! and jump! and pee mail. we're really good at pee mail.

woofs.

Amber-Mae said...

What a nice loverly day to go out! You two sure love to sniff trees. But there's alot of pee-mails left on them. Hee! Hope you liked your red juicy apple. We had apple coup two days ago & I thought it tasted quite nice eventho I never liked fruits...

Maggie and Mitch said...

What a beautiful walkie in the autumn leaves! Mom says she can smell the leaves coming through the puter! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, what a Heavenly smell!
Mitch wants to know if that apple was growing at the Arboretum. We never find yummy stuff like that at Sleeping Giant!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
