Yay or Nay For Pets at the Pumpkin Patch?

Mmmm, hands down my favorite sign of the season is the abundance of Fall squash 'cause I can't eat pretty falling leaves! Added to my weakness for pumpkin-y recipes (even for my pooch) is North's love of lounging around and exploring the great outdoors – I bet he'd love to attend a pumpkin patch picnic!
Sadly I haven't been to one of these farms since I was a kid but, thinking about all the new scents and wide-open spaces, I can also see some dangers especially if there are farm animals or wagons for canines to chase. If you've ever had a pet tag along on any leaf-watching, gourd-picking Autumn outings, tell me all about it in your comments below.

My dog is scared to death of pumpkins, carved or not, so we would not go to a patch. I would love to take her though, she's all about running around a field and "investigating". Not sure what she would do in a field full of pumpkins though!

carson doesn't mark things like other dogs do, he doesn't pee over other dogs pee or anything like that and he's such a picky eater I don't think I'd have to worry about him eating something that would make him sick. the only thing I would be concerned about would be how dusty or messy he could get.
