Leave It To Keats

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!  As we may have mentioned, just because we have a new member of the family, it doesn't mean any one of us are short-changed when it comes to one-on-one time with Mom!  She knows I love adventure and car rides, so yesterday we went on our annual Fall photo shoot in Keats!

This is what the parking lot side of some of our favorite tree line-ups looked like:

Breath-takingly beautiful, aren't they? But not quite 100% "there".

When we got out of the car, I had a look around:

"Hmm..."

As I scoped out the scene, I sensed trouble.

"We need to stay near the car, Mom."

We wanted to go around that line-up of trees and around the other side, but there were some off-lead, unruly, large dogs down near the end who weren't coming when their owner called them.  And called them and called them.  I can't fault them for that - it's not like I'd listen, either, but then that explains my leash, doesn't it?  

Moving right along ...

We walked in the opposite direction, and Mom took a couple quick shots:

I was on full alert!

It's up to me to keep Mom safe, you know.

Here are some of the leaves that we like so much:

This park has some of the prettiest leaves around!

We thought the guy with the unruly dogs left, so we started to go over to where we had wanted to go in the first place.

"What a beautiful park!"

I love walking that path!  There are so many cool smells and great things to see!  And so much to discover!  Unfortunately, our biggest discovery was that the guy had not left the park ...

"Whoa!  Those guys are out of control!"

... so I decided I'd best get Mom in the car.

Since the leaves haven't finished turning, we'll head back out later this week for another go at the leaves!  Safety first, folks!

Thanks for hitting Keats with me - it was a great trip, even if it was cut short!

Play bows,
Zim

  3. AHEM. The leash is for the humans. We OBVIOUSLY always have it under control.

    That's unfortunate there were big out of control dogs there.

    Good job getting your mom back to the car to safety. Can't wait to see the rest of your pics!

  8. Glad you saw the unruly dogs before they saw you. Too bad you could only go this way and not that way.

    Your mom got some pretty photos of the leaves. Ours are a bit disappointing. They won't turn color and they won't fall off.

    Kisses,
