My walk on the bike trail -- I was a good girl!

Yesterday Mommy took me for a long walk on the bike trail, we went 5.5 miles!

Mommy says I was such a good girl. I didn't pull too much, and I met and greeted lots of doggies and I even said hi to some strangers! Usually I find strangers scary, but yesterday I was feeling happy and not spooky. Mommy wants to take me on the bike trail a lot more now! YAY!

Love, Autumn


Fun walk at dusk!

Today is the first day it feels like autumn! It was cool and cloudy and there was some rain and wind! It smelled wonderful outside!

Today we got our walkies late in the day, at dusk! It was SO FUN! The wind was cool and nice and the air was moist and the clouds were pink! We could hear crickets and froggies too! There was one lightening and thunder, which kind of scared Amy (me and Amy walk together with Mommy a lot), but she did really good.

And guess what idea Mommy has now that it is getting cooler out! We are going to start enjoying some hiking! She even has a book full of dog friendly hikes. I can hardly wait!

Love, Autumn


Wow! I'm a doggie diary pick today!

Hey I'm a doggie diary pick today! YAY!

Today I am in very high spirits because so far, today has been lots of fun!

I started the day by jumping on the bed to wake Mommy and Daddy up. Then I stole the ball from my doggie sister Amy and I ran all around with it. Then we had yummy breakfast! And today Mommy is not going to work, and this is a primary reason I am in very high spirits today! It means that for sure Fun Things For Dogs will happen!

Mommy has some plans for me (and my doggie brother and sister). One thing we are going to do is some clicker training! She has a book by Pat Miller that is a six week training plan with a clicker! I will update my diary when we start and how it's going. The book even teaches TRICKS! FUN!

Mommy also wants to take me on some fun hikes now that the weather is cooling off (it is very hot where we live). I love hiking, it smells so good in the woods! And I love spending the time with just Mommy and me (unless Amy goes with us, which she sometimes does).

Hope you doggies all have a wonderful day!

Love, Autumn


made new friends on our walkie today

This morning me and Amy and Mommy met a nice man and his two nice doggies!

The doggies were out on their morning walkie too (and oddly, the man likes to carry around baggies of poopoo just like Mommy does! What is that all about anyway?). Me and Amy sniffed and wagged at the new doggies. One of them was a very pretty white lab, and the other one was a very cute, very old long-haired white doggie. The man said he is getting a DNA test on the old doggie! Mommy told him about my DNA test.

We liked meeting the doggies and the man (he was a NICE man, so I did not bark at him the way I bark at SCARY men... Mommy is proud that I can tell the difference). Maybe we will see them again on our walkies!

Love, Autumn


I am a good protector

I am half German Shepherd Dog, and that is a breed that can be good protective doggies.

Well, I am discovering my inner protective dog!

When me and Mommy are in the car and I see a strange man, I do a big booming alarm bark at him! I want him to know that this is MY car and he is not allowed near it!

When me and Mommy are on a walk and I see someone who looks creepy to me, I growl! Mostly I don't growl at people, but there are some scary people out there who need growling at. For instance, there was a man who looked like he was lurking around the parking lot where me and Mommy park to go walking on the trail in town, and that man scared Mommy a little. But I made sure he knew she was MY Mommy and he was not to come near, and I made a growly sound. He came near anyway and I made a big bark and he went away!

Daddy says he is happy I am a big protective orange German Shepherd Doggie and he feels Mommy is safe with me at her side, especially since we go walking on trails or hiking or walkies in town. I won't let anyone scare my Mommy!

Love, big protective Autumn doggie

PS ~ Mommy says I remind her of Fauna, her German Shepherd who is in Heaven now. She says she always felt very safe with Fauna at her side, and now she feels that way with me!


It's almost time for the best season EVER: Autumn!!!

August 29th 2012 12:34 pm

I am named after the best season ever! Summer is fun 'cause it's warm and you can swim, Spring is fun because the weather is mild and everything is green and smells good, Winter is fun 'cause of Christmas and presents and sometimes it snows which is REALLY fun... but Autumn is the BEST!

Here are all the reasons I love Autumn:

The weather cools down and we can go for walkies right in the middle of the day instead of avoiding the summer heat by walking only in the early morning or evenings.

The rain makes the world smell so damp and rich and good!

Leaves are falling all over the place and I love to sniff them... who knows what you will sniff hiding under the layer of leaves! A mouse? A lizard? A doggie turd? Hehehe on that last one, although I do love to sniff them while on walkies.

WAY more car rides! No more worrying about the car getting too hot, no more leaving doggies home during the day! I'm a real bye-bye dog, and I love going with Mommy everywhere she goes.

After work doggie walks -- Daddy brings me to work with him in the evening, which happens to be the EXACT SAME TIME Mommy is getting OFF work, and so we go on a cool evening walkie together! We don't get to do this in the summer 'cause it's too hot in the car for me to wait for Mommy to come out of the hospital after Daddy goes in.

I just love Autumn! Cool weather, crisp, damp air that makes everything smell so good, car rides, after-work walkies..... YAY for Autumn!

Love, Autumn (the doggie not the season hehehe!)

My DNA results!!!!

[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

So... drum roll please....

I am one half German Shepherd!
I am 25% German Shorthaired Pointer!
I am 22.5% Pharaoh Hound! This is where I get my orange and white coat!
The remaining 2.5% is made up of Weimaraner, English Cocker Spaniel, and Greater Swiss Mountain Dog!

So, basically, I am a German Shepherd/German Shorthaired Pointer/Pharaoh Hound mix!

Mommy just loves knowing my breeds, and was especially delighted to know about my Pharaoh Hound part, since I look all cute and orange and white like one!

Love, Autumn


DNA testing!!

Guess what! Mommy is having my DNA tested so we can see what kind of breeds I am made of! We should be getting the results back any day, and I will tell you exactly what I'm made of! FUN!

Love, Autumn


I am in better shape!

Guess what! I have put on 9 pounds!! This is wonderful because I was underweight when I came to my new forever home! Yay for putting on weight!

I am also all better from my spay surgery! I recovered beautifully, with the biggest challenge being Mommy had a hard time keeping me from trying to play with Amy while I was supposed to be taking it easy!

It's Mommy's favorite time of year -- AND my name -- it's AUTUMN!! Today it's rainy out... but Mommy says we will still go for a walk! Isn't life FUN?

Hope you're all ready for Halloween out there! We are just going to stay in and watch scary movies here... or at least that's what the people are going to do. Us doggies have different plans for Halloween...

Here's my plan: Mommy and Daddy want to be "scared" on Halloween, otherwise why would they watch scary movies? So my plan is to wait till it's all dark and scary night time, and then I will stand in front of the door (the back door, the front door, maybe even the GARAGE door!) and growl and then BARK like there is a monster out there!! Yay for scaring Mommy and Daddy on Halloween!

Love, Autumn
