Harvest of Happiness: A Dog and a Fall Day

Close-up face of Red goldendoodle dog and close-up of red fall leaf


Cozy sweaters. Cooler weather. Cuddly puppy. Nothing better.  Some of my favorite together times with Happy-Go-Doodle Chloe are fall mornings–when the rising sun adds a shimmer to the fall leaves trimmed in frost, and Chloe’s mop of wavy, cinnamon-colored hair matches the autumn landscape. I hope I’ve captured some of the simple joys of fall to share with you in this photo essay.

And your dog blends right in…
