Michigan Fall Colors

One of the best things about Michigan is the beauty of each season and autumn is probably my favorite. The pups and I spent the weekend "up north". The weather was in the high 70s and the colors were at their peak. We stayed with my aunt & uncle who have a beautiful home on a lake. Our bedroom was on the 2nd floor with a sliding glass door onto a balcony, overlooking the lake. Tess absolutely loved it, she spent a long time just laying, gazing out, looking absolutely content.

I took them down to the beach this morning and Tess just came to life. She was the first to just take off running. That's just not like her. I have to admit to being scared to death and to start with I justed couldn't let them go. After a while I decided I couldn't deny Tess the opportunity to have that kind of fun and I would have to trust that the dogs would come back when I called them. Which of course they did, with the help of treats.

Here are some of our pictures from the weekend.....

The photos are gorgeous, Jill! Your white dogs against all that color photographs so nicely.

What a beautiful weekend to be up north. I've only had the pleasure of going up north during the fall once since we lived here and I loved it. Fall is one of my favorite parts of living in Michigan having grown up in Alabama... the fall is so much more intense here.

We even found a standard poodle to play with (Cody kicked butt!).... Now both dogs are sound asleep, snoring! I think they enjoyed themselves.

Jill, the pictures are absolutely beautiful! What a wonderful way to spend the weekend. Isn't it fun to watch the dogs play off leash. I just love watching mine on the beach. I love to see those first moments after I take off the leash and they chase the sea birds (with absolutely no chance of catching one).
