Fall Photoshoot, Part 4: My first gif!
(Parts 1, 2, and 3)

I got a little lost when I first made it to the RED side of Mommy’s wreath. Mommy helped me out when I got stuck. I couldn’t believe my eyes at how many gorgeous red leaves there were!

Tumblr would only let Mom upload a blurry version of my gif. (1 MB limit?!) You can see the much nicer version here, at the end of Mom’s blog post. Mommy also posted on her blog the full video that the gif is made from.

This was all very exciting for my first autumn! I can’t wait to play in the leaves again next year!

Happy equinox (right on the dot!) with a flashback to my very first fall, five years ago!

The biggest surprise in my amazing birthday box from @anne-fine came in its own (delicious) package:  A personalized stamp showing me with Mom!  @anne-fine had our stamp specially carved by a female artisan in Japan!  The stamp includes my name, and stamp me is even wearing a dapper hat!  Plus, stamp Mom has lots of her favorite crafting medium:  yarn!  We love our new stamp so much!!

@anne-fine​ included in my birthday box two samples of my stamp and sent us an excellent demo video showing how to superimpose different colors on top of the ink.  To top it off, @anne-fine sent us an ink pad and special aqueous markers to paint our personalized stamp—including a radicchio-colored marker!

All of our lovely stamp materials were wrapped in a 100% cotton bag that I sniffed and booped all over!

Mom, this pin turtle has a crown.  Why don’t I have a crown?!

So many pretty colors!

This shimmery ink pad looks delicious, too…

Mom still refuses to give me back my coconut.  She says I can sleep inside my hidey hut instead.  Mom, my hidey hut is for flipping over, not sleeping in!!

Time for the Test of the Champion!  Can Justify win the Belmont Stakes for the second Triple Crown in three years?  With the rail post position, clear sunny weather, and a well-rested field, Justify sure has his work cut out for him today!

Mom invited Princess the pretty pony to watch today’s race with us.  I instantly fell in love with my regal new friend!

image

So much love!

image

Me, rude?!

I’m just showing Princess how much I love her!

image

You want me to share my yummy radicchio with our guest?!  Why would I ever do that?!?

HE DID IT!!

Justify has won Triple Crown #13!!!  And what a race!  Wire to wire lead, and what an impressive finish by only the second ever undefeated Triple Crown winner and the first ever to win the Triple Crown without racing as a two-year-old!

Congratulations to Mike Smith on becoming the oldest jockey to ever win the Triple Crown and Bob Baffert on becoming only the second trainer to win two Triple Crowns (back to back, no less)!

P.S.  Excellent place by Gronkowski on his first race in the US, his first race over a mile, and his first race on dirt!  Watching him go from dead last to second was incredible!
