We love fall!

(Dobby helped pick these pumpkins and gourds out!)

I have always been a huge fan of fall- and Dobby is, too! We love the cool mornings, perfect for snuggling. We love the warm- but not hot!- afternoons, great for lounging out on the deck in the sunshine. And recently, we've discovered the joy of chilly evenings in front of a fire :)

Last year my fireplace was in questionable condition... but we had it serviced, and now can enjoy it all winter long. Dobby loves the fire- it's gas, so it doesn't put out too much heat, but it puts out enough that he notices. He is fairly uninterested most of the time when it's burning, but once in a while, he will walk up to the fireplace and just bask in the glow. I think the light from the flames makes him nervous, but after I turn the fire off- when the heat is lingering on the tiles- he likes to just go stand by it; warming his little butt.

We all know chihuahuas love warm stuff!! :)

We don't have a fireplace, but Mama misses the warmth and toastiness!!

Coco loves to lay directly in front of the heater! Sometimes i worry that she will get too warm but even after i turn it off, she sill stay put untill it has completely cooled off!

Dobby, as always, is picture perfect! Give him kisses from me and Coco

I can't wait until it gets cold enough here for a fire. I think the munchkins would love it! I love fall too b/c of the temperatures. Not too hot and not too cold. Just how I like it. The munchkins don't like it when it gets below 70 though!

Hi Dobby,

We don't have a fireplace to keep our butts warm, so we curl up next to mom's space heater.

We're totally in your shoes - this is the first year we've used our wood stove (we have a fire place but it's electric so not the same LOL). The Chi's LOVE it! They lay on the back of the chair we have in front of it & are right in their glory. What a gorgeous Chi you have btw...he's so so handsome!!

Captain would LOVE a fire place, Dobby is so lucky! Little Caps is total heat seeker, the hotter the better!
