Playful Pets Fall For Autumn Leaves

Oct 12 2013 - 7:00am

There's a briskness in the air, and freshly fallen leaves are drifting around sidewalks. Dogs and cats everywhere love the change of season. And let's be honest: we're loving tossing on our favorite Fall sweaters, too. From pets enjoying chasing the crisp foliage to nestling in for a little rest, diving in a freshly raked pile still seems to be everyone's favorite Fall activity. To celebrate the most colorful of seasons, we bring you pets playing (and lolling) in leaves!
