Day 54 and 55

Well, we have had some limited success with Bear at night. I have discovered that if I stay up a half an hour or so later, until 10:30 or 11:00 pm, and let Bear out right before bed that he sleeps until 5:30 or six. We had been hitting the hay around 9:30 or 10:00 pm because we're up at 5:30 am. This may not seem like a big deal, but to me it is huge! He has been waking up once or twice a night, usually at 1:37 am and 4:19 am since we got him. I finished midnight feedings and wakeups with the kids roughly 16 years ago so this dual waking throughout the night has been very wearing for me as it is accompanied by an outing as well. For the past two nights there have been no chewing sessions or messes when we wake up! Yay!

Exercise is going much better as we are giving Bear and Will a lot of yard time playing ball and chase. Bear and I also did some walking in the fields and picture taking as my daughter is homesick for fall and wanted some pictures. I guess the leaves don't change in North Carolina...but then again, we don't have a beach here. I don't think there is anywhere that fall happens like here in the North East!
Happy wandering!
The Writer...and her dog, Bear

The pictures are absolutely beautiful! I was born in NY and lived in the Northeast until 2000 and I miss the spectacular foliage as in your pictures.

Congratulation to Bear for being a good boy the last two night!

We get some color change in North Carolina, but mainly it's a "Hey, look at the leav--oh wait, they've all fallen" kind of thing.

I love the pictures!!! I live in Maryland and it's true, there is nothing like the change in leaves here in the North east. It's beautiful.

Congrats to Bear for being a good boy for two nights in a row! Yay!!

Great pictures. Made me want to go walk outside on a fall day. There is really no color change here in Texas. Where we are is mostly pine forests and mild winters. Looks like a great place to take walks!
