Kobe Won the Prize

This morning, our weather is definitely showing early signs of 'fall.' Trees are beginning to change color and our pretty summer flowers are going to seed. It was a perfect morning for a nice walk! Kobe was in high spirits, probably because it's such a comfortable temperature, around 65 degrees Fahrenheit. He pranced along like a prize stallion, showing off his masculine build for a crowd of viewers! Actually, about five cars passed by and most of them didn't even glance our way Oh well, I still thought Kobe looked pretty good, not to mention, he was very well behaved! That's what inspired me to use this silly title:)

It's not a stupid title, but for me it's nice! Kobe is a dog, I am for animal rights, so I know what it means to be proud to have a beautiful dog. I suppose for you it was an enthusiasm!

At 65 degrees I'd have to have a jacket. Nice that you and Kobe could get out for a walk.

Kobe did you proud, my friend. That photo is adorable!!! Molly delights in the fall-like weather too, but she is a squirrel-chaser and I have to hold that leash tight.

Oh, goodness, yes! We cross two deer paths, on our walk each day. If I don't hang on tightly, those deer run across in front of us, without any warning at all!:(

He just needs to be trained to understand that he is indeed stronger than he thinks he is @kobesbuddy but that takes time and eventually he'll learn.

It's good he was so well behaved on his walk. I'm starting to see the changes in some trees, especially on my way to church, but none in the neighborhood yet. I expect it will be happening soon though.
