Doggy Daze at the Corn Maze

We are so happy that fall has finally arrived.  The cooler temperatures mean we can get outside and go on fun adventures... without the fear of melting. Plus, when you live in New England, there is always something fun happening this time of year. In fact, there is so much going on that we just can't get to it all. It seems as though every time we decide to do something, three more super fun things pop up on the same day. Plus, the Lapdogs' Daddy still has couple of race weekends left which immediately wipe out some of the coolest stuff... hmprf.

But have no fear, I'm making sure we "get our fall on" as much as possible this year! After all, there's nothing like having a new puppy to experience all the joys of my favorite time of year for the first time.

The corn mazes have been opening up all around us these past couple of weeks, and thanks to a fabulous local fall event Facebook group, I noticed one of them does "Doggy Maze Days" for their opening weekend. I immediately thought, "how cool!?" and knew Penny would have a blast.

We ended up going on Sunday, since that racing thing had us busy on Saturday.  As luck would have it, that meant Saturday was the beautiful blue skies day of the weekend and Sunday was the rainy day.  By the time we got to the farm, the doggy vendors had already had enough of the rain and decided to pack up.  So we missed out on all the cool stuff they had going on for dogs to do/sample (shhh, don't tell Penny they had free ice cream), but we still had a blast going through the corn maze.

Here's a quick video clip...

I left a wet, muddy mess with crazy rain hair, but didn't care.  We had so much fun and Penny was the ultimate explorer.  Except for the two bridges in the maze. My little girl refused to climb up the stairs, but happily romped down the other side.  I'm not sure what it is, as we have stairs at home, but this is the second place we've gone where she doesn't want to go up the stairs.  (Since the other place is her new training facility, we'll certainly be working on that over the next 12 weeks)

We spent over two hours at the farm, going through the maze and then the little farm store. To say Penny was a happy pup is an understatement.

I wish more farms opened up their corn mazes for our fur-kids (I found one other, but it was about 3 hours away in Western Massachusetts on a race weekend).  We'll definitely be going back for "Doggy Maze Days" again next year!

And while I may be a little bias, is there anything cuter than a puppy in a pumpkin patch?

How fun is it to find an amazing place like that who allow dogs to participate. Here in Minnesota it is hard to find dog friendly places, but we did find a couple. Just have to drive a bit! I love all the small pumpkins!!! :)

Penny is so beautiful, such a sweet face. She is one lucky dog to be about to run through that corn maze, what fun! I've never encountered a dog day at a corn maze!

I wish more places allowed dogs. We like to bring Cocoa with us when we go places so she can have fun too!!

What fun! I've never heard of a corn maze that had doggie days. Will need to check that out, since I'm sure my border collies would love it.

I love it that you were able to go through the corn maze! How much fun that must have been (although I'll bet my Boston would have cheated and cut through the corn...). I'm a little fascinated by the stair phobia, too. Looking forward to seeing how you deal with that.

At least one of the corn mazes here is dog-friendly the entire time they're open. We took Mr. N last year. He was very good at navigating.

Those corn fields look like a lot of fun..

That looks like such a great time! Our corn maze is haunted so we won't go, but I'd love to find a fun pumpkin patch.

That looks so fun! We haven't tried this. I'm sure my fur babies will have a blast.

Looks like a lot of fun. We don't get to go outside, but we do like the cooler weather.
