Grampa's Pup

About 10 years ago, my Dad's dog Moochie was murdered.

I say murdered because he got off his chain one day, meandered into man's yard, and that man shot him claiming he was bothering his own dog.

(FYI, not against the law to shoot a dog in your yard if he's "bothering" your animals, wtf??)

My Dad has been mourning the loss of that dog ever since.

This weekend he came home with an Uncle Henry's in hand talking about a 10 month old Golden Retriever in northern Maine for 250 bucks.... but it was a 6 hour drive. I was shocked to hear him speak of it because he's said he was never getting a dog again.

I knew eventually he would though... because he's a hunter and an outdoors man, and having a dog with him has always been the norm....

He had a little sparkle in his eye talking about it... and it made me happy to see him moving on.

Of course I was online within 10 minutes and after facebooking a few shout outs about puppies, found a litter about 45 minutes away. Sunday afternoon I was picking the little guy out for him (he's a bit of a hermit and doesn't handle meeting new people well).

In 3 weeks the little guy will be coming home with us... :) Rowan was very excited about picking him out, and although I've never been big on Golden's, I've got to admit the little guy is hella cute!

Here's to a few months of piddle pads, chewed up shoes, and puppy whining haha

Its been a strange fall for us. Living in the seacoast area we were surrounded by orchards, pick your own farms and a million other wonderful fall traditions such as the Portsmouth Chili cook off and the Dover Apple harvest day.

You'd think that by living up north in the woods there'd be a plethora of farmy type things to do, but its just so rural that these places are hard to find.

This made me extremely happy today when we decided to follow the pumpkin patch signs on route 104 as we headed home from church.

We found the most amazingly beautiful Farm with a quaint farm stand completely surrounded by mountains and fall foliage.

We hopped in a hay wagon and rode out into the middle of the farm field to pick us some pumpkins! Rowan chose hers by picking up all the small ones and searching for one without dirt on it (she's sooo her daddy's child) and then Barney and I chose a large one to carve closer to Halloween.

It was a great spur of the moment adventure and I'm happy to create new fall traditions up here in the mountains :)
