Dear Abby - Videos Abby Likes: A Retriever Makes Leaf Jumps!

Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a good week! It is getting colder here since I last wrote. We still have lots of leaves. I walk on a leash, so I don't take giant leaps into leaves (and I probably wouldn't do this anyway) but I do love the way the leaves sound crunchy when I walk through them. 

I have one of my favorite ever dog videos to share with you. It is a 3 minute visit with Stella. Stella is a retriever and she LOVES leaves. In this video she jumps into leaves on her own, with a dog friend, with children friends, and even wearing butterfly wings!  Stella has her own Youtube channel, and I have it bookmarked here now:  Dog Named Stella (Youtube).

You will find this happy video here:

If you have a dog, does he or she have an interest in walking through - or jumping in - leaves?

I would love to hear from you in the comments, and wish you a good day!

Book Spotlight and Giveaway - A Home for Christmas by MK McClintock

Book Synopsis

Will six strangers find hope, love, and family at Christmas? A collection of three historical western short stories to inspire love and warm the heart.

“Christmas Mountain”

In search of family she barely knows and adventure she’s always wanted, Katherine Donahue is saved from freezing on a winter night in the mountains of Montana by August Hollister. Neither of them expected that what one woman had in mind was a new beginning for them both.

“Teton Christmas”

Heartache and a thirst for adventure lead McKensie Stewart and her sister to Wyoming after the death of their parents. With the help of a widowed aunt and a charming horse breeder, McKensie discovers that hope is a cherished promise, and there is no greater gift than love.

“Lily’s Christmas Wish”

Lily Malone has never had a real family or a real Christmas. This holiday season, she might get both. From an orphanage in New York City to the rugged mountains of Colorado, Lily sends out only one wish. But when the time comes, can she give it up so someone else’s wish can come true?

If you love inspirational romance and heartfelt holidays, then you’ll enjoy this trio of stories as we remember the true meaning of love any time of the year.
