One Last Gasp of Fall Beauty

It's another unreasonably unseasonal day, and I managed to walk/drag the puppy about 3/4 mile this morning in celebration. She's now more or less paper-trained (at least as far as fluids go), will sit for her supper, is starting to understand the basics of "off" and "down," and is less of a trip hazard on a leash. But "heel" is still just completely beyond her - if we're motivating forward together, she just doesn't see the need to restrain herself and will hang the front half of her body from the leash as we stumble down the road. Sigh.

But days like this, with balmy breezes and low gas prices and conciliatory commentaries filling the radio waves, are gifts which should be appreciated while they last.
