Pups and Leaves

What is it about dogs and leaves?

I could have a completely clear pathway to walk and my girls just pull me toward the side of the leaves. Yes, they want to pee on them, that’s a given. Most of the time, thought, they are sniffing something: if it was a pup friend who was there before them, a dead animal or whatever- my girls are Pup CSI. 

They have a thin layer of mucus on their nose, I read somewhere, and this is a part of their DNA for sniffing.The thing that ticks me off is bugs still stay close to the ground,and the girls don’t need any trouble.

I’m ready for the snow- let’s get rid of the bugs.
