"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn!

It has been quite a miserable Summer around here and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy to see it go. I'm missing my Bridget and Indy terribly. I'm looking forward to Fall and everything that comes along with it. Apple and pumpkin pie season, sweater weather, seeing far away friends, old friends and meeting new friends at the PWCCA National Corgi Specialty, the holidays, and let's not forget less frizzy hair weather. This morning I could tell I would need a sweatshirt because John and I were fighting for the covers and we were surrounded by wee beasties who were trying to snuggle down to keep warm. The Corgis were stirring so I got up to take them out so he could sleep in (a very rare treat for The Mister.) I made some coffee and turned on the computer.

Every once in a while I receive an email from Jane Dewey that I know is going to make me smile. Long time readers of this blog know that her Corgi, "Diva" enjoys dressing up and hamming it up for the camera. Here are a couple of photos of Diva.

Just look at her with that net veil hat.

She knows she looks smashing.

And who else could pull off wearing a spider on her head? Not many of us, I tell you.

And lest you think 'the Diva' is all fluff and glitter,

here is a picture of this little athlete during her MACH run.

Not to be outdone, here is Nelson, another of Jane's Corgis.

He is sporting his Sherlock Holmes outfit.

How can there be so much cuteness in one little body?

Elementary, my dear...

Enjoy this Labor Day, my lovely Corgettes! I hope you are doing something fun or relaxing. I'm finishing up some new original artworks which I'll share with you later on. Give your Corgis a cookie and a big kiss on the nose for me today, will you? xo xo -Cat ♥

We are finally getting cooler weather here in Arkansas, too! I am also ready for this summer to be over. I lost my precious 10 year old PWC Winston three weeks ago. I am so thankful I still have my 6 year old Chelsea to help me through the grieving process. It also helps to see those wonderful pictures you posted!! Thanks for sharing!

It has been such a summer of loss in the corgi blogger world. I look at our two, and hope and pray that they have many days left.
I look forward to Fall as well, and all that it brings. It's time to bring out the sweaters, and the coziness that this new season will bring. Crock pots, bonfires, and cold noses in the dark....boo!

What CUTE photos! I am really looking forward to fall, as well. I always feel most alive during the season - and hopefully you will find a sense of renewal as well. Theresa
