Free Apples

We have an apple tree in our yard and it just happens to be where we spend most of our outside time!
This time of the year it is LOADED with apples! Overnight the wind knocks some of the apples off the tree and in the morning Mitch and I always have free snackies until our evil mom picks them up and tells us that we've had more than our share for the day! After our walkie Mitch is always the first one outside with dad so I honestly think he snags a couple more apples that mom doesn't know about!
Mom says she can always tell by his poo if he's fibbing or not! hehehehe
I happen to be more lucky than Mitch seeing as I am actually tied to the apple tree and I get all of the fresh ones that fall - the minute they fall!
But I'm not a pig like Mitch is and I won't eat 25 apples in one day - he would if he could!
I'm happy with just one!
Mitch is tied on a staircase inside the barn near where mom and dad are so he can only get so far and when he sees a couple of apples that he can't reach, he barks for help! hahaha
And if I were a nice sister, I'd roll them to him but I'm not a nice sister because then mom will yell at me for feeding Mitch too many apples!
Mitch will stand there and bark at the apples until he either gets one or until mom tosses it to the geese and ducks. They love apples too!
Can you see the apple spittle on Mitch's chin? Don't you think at this point he's had more than his share?
What a piggy boy!

After we got bored of the apples, we had a friendly game of tug!

The green bone pillow now has a small sized hole in it! Once the hole grows larger, that will be the end of the pillow! Oh well! It was fun while it lasted!

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Maggie, what a timely post for the beginning of Fall!! Mitch is gonna be sick if he eats all of those!! Do you guys eat tomatoes whole like that? My mom had a wire who used to raid the garden. His beard told the tail, er so to speak!!

Tail wags,

triple B's said...

that's so cool that you have your very own apple tree with apples in it. Brody loves apples. we used to have an apple tree full of apples last summer but this year mom pruned the tree so much that it didn't make any apples at all. poor us, no apples...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie.
Wow. An apple tree! I used to love apples but no more! Maybe I had too many!!
Don't let Mitch to eat all of them! We don't want him to get sick!
Have a good night

Stanley said...

Hey Piggy Mitchman!!

You're like me. You'll eat as much as you can of anything tasty. You're a lucky boy ~ having those apply treats everyday (AND having the best big sis a boy could want).

Maggster! Do you usually win the tugging contests with Mitch. Something tells me you are a fierce competitor. But, looking at you lounging under your apple tree, you look so demure and dainty. hehehe Little would the newcomer know that you are fierce Maggie Girl of the Northford BarnRaisers!!

Goober love (& a little apple envy),

Gus said...

We would happily trade you some apples today for a few grapefruit tomorrow! (actually, shortly after Thanksgiving) or oranges or tangerines or lemons. Apples don't do well here, except up north in the mini mountains, and me n Teka don't like the citrus stuff. But ohhhhh when the pecans come in! Yummy. Roughage!

Eddie N Peaches said...

What a handsome picture of Mitchie (even with apple slobber on his chinnie chin chin).
We have a walnut tree. Momma picks em up cuz if we eat 'em we get sick tummies.
Pooches Smooches,

Awww what a beautiful place you live. Love pics of dogs playing together.


Rudy said...

I remember apples! Mom used to give us little pieces while she would eat one. I think they're fun to chase and play with.
We've got green beans in the garden and Josie runs through and eats any within reach. Mom taught her where to find them and now Josie's a bean-eating machine. She leaves nothing for us... we have to get ours from a can.
Have fun!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Woh you get free apples? I'm so jealous! Mitch sure loves apple hee hee there's still some left on his chin

Boo said...

wet wet licks


Joe Stains said...

a tree that dispenses apples?! I wish we could be so lucky!! we have a grapefruit tree that spits grapefruits but we cant eat those :(

Amber-Mae said...

Wow! You two are lucky to get free apples that are just practically above your heads. I don't eat apples but & wouldn't mind giving it a try some day...So, is your pillow torn in two yet?

Love licks,

ROSSI said...

Jessie and Jake said...

Wow Mitch could eat 25 in one day! Mitch you are the man.
Maggie we think you could roll over and throw Mitch just one little apple - the fresh ones - but we understand if you don't - after all we are siblings too and that is what ya do!

Heehee - have a good weekend :-)

Reina said...

hi Maggie & Mitch!

You guys are so lucky to have a tree full of apples!!!!!!!
Wow, can i join you guys there? Then we can have a buffet of apples and i would love to play tug of war with you all!


Girasol said...

your yard must be the best place for you to play. i was thinking that your mom should make an apple pie.

Orion said...

Mmmmmmm.....those look goooood. I've never had an apple before, but generally, I like all things that can be considered food.
Wow, I can't believe that Mitch is so big! I bet he's way taller than me now! And Maggie, you're looking good yourself, as always!
Licks and wiggles,

Ferndoggle said...

I need one of those appleball trees in MY yard! I don't think I'd eat them...just roll them all around & bark at them.


Jake of Florida said...

We love apple!!! Mom just sliced one and we sat patiently (sorta') while she dosed half slices to us, one by one, ever so slowly. And we had a bit of string cheese to go with it!! Yum. Almost as good as peanut butter.

What kind of apples are on your tree, Maggie?

Jake and JH

Snowball said...

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Oh my dogness... you two are so lucky. Apples are SOOO yummy!

Sophie Brador said...

umekotyan said...

Having is envied so that the apple tree is near.
I want also to eat the apple. :)
It says in "If it eats the apple, the doctor is unnecessary" and Japan.

Be happy, and spend the weekend with the pull.

T-man said...

Ooh, can we see a picture of Mitch's 25 apple poop? I'd like to see that! Imagine having free goodies falling from the trees...heaven!!

Goofy said...

APPLE TREE!!!!!! how I wish I could have this tree here coz I love apples alot...

Persephone & Buster said...

Apples! Wow--that's awesome...kinda like crunchy chipmunks, 'cept sweeter!

Guess there are worse things than being tied to an apple tree. Like a lifetime supply of hot-fudge sundaes or a long afternoon nap!

Koobuss said...

Wow! That is quite a story about all the apples! Dogs are at such a disadvantage when it comes to humans. We just can't get rid of the evidence when we get into something and they know every time. It's just not fair!

You guys are lucky to have your very own apple tree and have all the apples you want everyday forever. Apples are so good. I love 'em.

Koobuss Kisses,

Maggie, my mom was giving me bananas yesterday, but yuck, I don't like them. I also don't like apples or veggies. Am I weird, or what??

Mojo said...

You two should come round and play at my house. Loads of apples everywhere (as long as nasty parents don't throw them to the sheep first) and plums! Juicy juicy plums!
Anyway, a little bit of apple juice dribble in a boy's beard looks quite smart, I think.
