Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin waggles, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin spice candles, pumpkin custard, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin spice cake, pumpkin dog treats!

Any excuse to enjoy pumpkin is good enough for us!

Southern Oregon in the Fall
This move has been really amazing for us, we LOVE Southern Oregon! Last week Ziva went to a local Farmers Market with me, their are many different Farmer's Markets down here so if you miss one you can always hit a different one for some fresh fruits, vegetables, and homemade goodies. The focus down here is on healthy eating, organic, and local. 

We also love that many places are dog friendly! It's often not posted so you want to call ahead and ask rather than assume, but we've been pleasantly surprised at how many places we've found. Including a local pumpkin patch!

Pumpkin Hunting!
Being a rather large farm I was a bit worried the dogs wouldn't be invited but dogs are allowed on leash! They had food stands, some local vendors, a pumpkin launching station, tractor rides, a crazy cow train (Not Actual Cows!) the sitting buckets were painted to look like cows and they were pulled by a crazy fast ATV thing. This farm also hosts a big corn maze, hay bale maze for the smaller kiddos, and a GIANT pumpkin patch where you can go pumpkin hunting!

Feeling rather brave I decided to take both dogs out at once, I say brave because we've still not settled into a good training routine recently. Did you know country life is busy? Their is just never a shortage of work to be done.

Setting Up For Success
Bringing a giant bag of stinky treats, and attaching both dogs to the same leash for easier control we set out to find a pumpkin!  Despite the low grumbles of the tractor rides, the explosive bangs and thuds of pumpkin launching, the smell of fresh kettle corn, and the kids squealing in delight on the different play structures the dogs did so great!

Despite all of the noise Dante and Ziva were perfect champs! The pumpkin blasting was super loud but didn't bother them at all, and though they got a bit excited with all of the sights, sounds, and smells they listened great! We got tons of compliments on their behavior, I think people got a kick out of seeing me walking the two of them on the same leash held by just one hand with a pumpkin under my other arm. Training really does pay off!

Dante of course had to dress in his pumpkin colors, he looks so good in orange!

And being a bit on the cooler side, Ziva was sporting her pink hoodie for the occasion. Her red collar keeps making people think she's a boy! So we're back to sporting more pink, which is my happy color so i'm more than willing to pick up more!

"What's this I hear about a Pumpkin King?"
We also made sure to thank the staff for being dog friendly!

Not having a full kitchen I'm a bit limited on what I can bake, but that doesn't mean we're sitting this year out. Big thanks to Chewy for sending us a yummy pumpkin treat to try!

Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up!

I love spoiling Dante and Ziva, and what better way to get the pups in the holiday spirit than to share in some pumpkiny fun!

Did you know Pumpkin is good for dogs? 
  • Pumpkin is high in fiber, low in fat and cholesterol, and contains healthy beta carotene, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and vitamins A and C.
  • Pumpkin also helps if your dog has an upset tummy, the fiber in pumpkin acts as a binding solution during digestion and can help if your pup has diarrhea.

Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up is available in two sizes: 1.05 oz for $7.44 & 2.80 oz pouches for $11.76 each coming in a case of 12. Yum! And it only has two ingredients, pumpkin and water for processing! You can get yours at

Thank you Chewy For the Yummy Pumpkin!

    1. I hope you enjoy your Pumpkin Patch Up as much as we have!! To bad your town doesn't allow dogs. :-( Our farmers market doesn't allow them either but a lot of the buisnesses do. :-)
