Dog’s are not just a man’s best friend. They can be a woman’s too. They generally don’t talk back or interrupt. They love a good cuddle. And they lift up the day say the women at Canine to Five who take care of other people’s dogs during the day and go home to spend time with their own canines during their off hours. Is this a sign of pet obsession gone too far? No way. They just love dogs and hanging out with your furry friends or their own, keeps them contented and healthy. These girls like to share everything with dogs,and they are not afraid of showing real affection for any four-legged friends under their care. They are not alone. According to a 2007 study, about two-thirds of households in the US have at least one pet, and 45 per cent of those families have more than one animal. With humor, soul and a deep knowledge of what it takes to lead, women have long been a part of a dog’s life and training, just like their menfolk.
Oh the wonderful days of falling leaves and pumpkin patches! Believe it or not, pumpkins are considered a fruit. They were named after the Greek word for “large melon.” Pumpkins are part of the gourd family, along with cucumbers, honeydew melons, cantaloupe, watermelons and zucchini. Think of all the wonderful things we can do with this glorious fruit. Native Americans used it for food and and even made woven mats out of strips of the dried gourd. Pilgrims were known to combine hops, maple sugar, and pumpkin to brew a tasty colonial beer. Early colonists even used the shell as a template for hair cuts. (That’s why New Englanders are sometimes called pumpkin heads.) What’s your favorite pumpkin product? Is it pumpkin pie? pumpkin spiced latte? or adorable pictures from pumpkin patches?
I took my niece, Lily, to Calie’s Acre so she could enjoy the season in her new snuggly Carhartt outfit. Check out Lily’s look here: Carhartt Girl’s Redwood Jacket, Girl’s “Watercolor Horse” Long-Sleeve Bodyshirt, Brushed Fleece Pants, & Kid’s Acrylic Watch Hat. I was decked out in a fun fall clothes as well. This deep wine colored Marlinton Jacket is one of my favorites. The hue goes so well with everything. It might sound crazy, but I consider deep plum colors to be neutral, especially during fall. See my outfit here: Women’s Marlinton Jacket, Dartford Denim Shirt, & Women’s Series 1889 Slim Double Front Dungarees.
