a plethora of pumpkin

It’s pumpkin season, much to Kona’s excitement. She inspected every one of the more than a dozen I brought home last week. (post continues below)

Big pumpkins. Little pumpkins. Orange pumpkins. White pumpkins. Even green-speckled pumpkins. (post continues below)


Kona licked each one at the stem. And gnawed a few for good measure. (post continues below)

That wasn’t even the highlight of her week, because I made pumpkin spice oatmeal pecan cookies. Okay, so she didn’t get to eat the finished product (or the dough, like I did), but there was plenty of leftover pumpkin for her to enjoy. An unexpected scoop in her food bowl pretty much makes her day.

She’s probably also relieved I haven’t forced her into any seasonal costumes … yet. After the lobster incident last year, I’ll probably let her off the Halloween hook entirely. Though I have seen some “bad dog” prisoner costumes that are quite irresistible.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Before October 31 rolls around, the St. Louis Cardinals have a World Series to win! If Kona’s wearing anything this month, it’ll be a baseball jersey. Go Cards!
