September is a great month, the weather has cooled a bit and hunting seasons have started to open. Even Scooter seems to know things are different. The other day I put her hunter-orange safety coat on her and her personality changed. Normally when I let her out she just goes around the yard sniffing and marking her territory. With her hunting coat on she checked every tree for squirrels and barked her challenge to the world. It was as though she was letting every critter know that a hunting dog was ready to rumble. I couldn't help but laugh.
