Falling Fur Digging & Sniffing & Also A Selfie

I am liking a lot about the fall...except maybe fur all the sogginess lately. Sheesh. When the sun does show up, its only a brief time afur more clouds and rain comes down upon us.
Fogginess is happening too sometimes. Plain rain isn't so bad or a storm, cause they mostly are over quickly, but the drizzly dank days we have had a lot of lately are well...boring.
 On a rare day recently I did some garden self guided tours.
Under the Dogwood

In a thicket

Somefur...a varmint, Grrr...was here.

I know you were here too.

And here, all ovfur the place, you naughty rascal varmint. Watch put, I am lurking to snag you.

Hey! I see something ovfur there!


And sight works too...

And intent listening skills are needed.

Homing in on 'it'.

I need to dig you outta there.

All inside the shrubbery

Hey, I still have you in my sights.

Sniff, sniff, sniff...

So on a brief occasion when it was dry(er), I did some snooping about the shrubbery. I unearthed a snake, some old walnuts...and likely a host of other unrecognizables. Growlmy 'stole' my snake to rescue it from my fun her,  she says the snakes are good to have...even though I beg to differ.

Good sniffing here!

And even better sniffing here by the fence.

I 'hunted' and sniffed under and in the shrubs...always interesting smells there, esp if the bunnies and squirrels have been by. I sniff along the fence line, too..if doggies have been strolling past we can exchange our pee mails and other ideas that way. Growlmy found a baby snapper...way cuter than the huge one earlier this summer, and it was going to be squashed by cars in the driveway, so she put it in the grass...outside of my rescue it.

The big cranes are still around, they are gathering each evening in a marshy preserve, OMD, growlmy and pawppy went there and it was neat to see...and furry noisy!

 Then I climbed the weeping cherry to get a better view...(not of the cranes, BOL! Just my own yard...)

There is something edible here...

Its a long way down...Yikes!

But I am still here nevfur-the-less...

Solid ground is far better...

I got my attenshuns diverted.

Hmmm...where to go now?

 Halloween is coming around again, but I didn't want to 'do' costumes, so growlmy will retrieve some oldies out of the deep dark recesses of my archives, BOL!
My selfie with my opinion of wearing a costume...

                                    This opinionated selfie is hosted by the Cat On My Head.


  1. So much sniffing so little time... Wilhelm loves to sniff each and every leaf that falls to find out how it's spring ans summer went. he also find something edible almost everywhere he roams and climbs! Your are two of a kind!

  2. Crikey Mr JF Sir..... you get better looking all the time. Good to see you're keeping an eye on the place. Mum sure would like to join Pawppy and Growlmy to have a look at those cranes AND your idea of wearing costumes and mine are about the same. Good opinion, mate!!

    1. Those cranes are majestic when they fly by.
      Raspberries are good fur opinions...BOL!

  3. Looks like ya gots some real good sniffin lately.

    A bunny's decided to hang out in my backyard - crazy bunny!

  4. There's a lot of sniffing going on here, Mr Jack and you're such a good climber :) Love your selfie, you're cute :) Pawkisses for an Easy Sunday :)

  5. That's a very cute selfie!

    You have a wonderful yard! So much to see and sniff!

  6. My goodness, you've had some great adventures in the yard. I agree about costumes and I'd stick my tongue out too.

  7. Wow! That looks a lot like our yard and the things we would do! Nose around in the underbrush and find little beasties. What fun! I don't mind the mud at all.

    1. Hi there! Some of those beasties are yummy, some not so much...

  8. What a great adventure you had. Finding a snake sounds super scary to us. We love watching you investigate absolutely every inch of the outside. Thanks so much for joining and supporting the Hop. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. What could be better than a dog under a dogwood Mr. Jack?! You have a yard full of fun adventures just waiting for you! :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. Hmmm...I hadn't even thought of that, BOL!

      My yard is wonderfur!

  10. Looks like you've been busy! I caught and killed 2 mice in the ranchyard last week.
    Sharpened my swoopin' in skills, just in TIME! Gma made Vanilla popcorn for the grankiddies....she was breakin' it apart and a big chunk flew out of her arthritic hands....Yep! From the hallway I zipped there and snatched it,before she could grab it up! I didn't give it back either! It was delish! kisses,mazy

    1. I nevfur would give up things like that either!
