Kobe is My National Pet, to Honor

This is the most wonderful pet, I've ever owned. Kobe follows me everywhere, looking for approval of course. When I first got him in 2013, I knew there was something very unique about that puppy. He immediately adopted me as his 'mommy' and I adopted him wholeheartedly, as my 'special friend.' I've had different dogs throughout my life, but this fella here, has to be the sweetest pet I've ever owned. In June Kobe will be turning five years old, a miracle in the making:)

You see. Even my parents said about our dog Kelly. Many are asking the reason why they did not take another dog. But the reasons are basically two: - My mother has long suffered from pain in her leg and, as you know, she will be operated on the hip a few days later - All in all, now my parents are no longer "young" to handle a dog. When they took Kelly, they were 13 years younger. So you're absolutely right, with your Kobe

@kobesbuddy Yes indeed. Although in the future, in my family, another dog will not be there, none of us, can never forget Kelly.

@alberello75 I have made up my mind already, Kobe will be my very last dog, ever. I'm getting older now and walking him is more of a task. I enjoy our daily walks, but I won't ever think about training another dog. It's a constant job and a lot of hard work.

Angel in one of her favorite places--my bed
@kobesbuddy Is Kobe a pure lab? According to the guy from the shelter, Angel is "Black Lab and somethin'. " Also not sure how old she is. The shelter guy also said at the time she was "Maybe three or four. "

@xstitcher No, Kobe isn't a pure-breed Lab. He has white whiskers around his mouth and a few white hair on top of his head. His head is sorta shaped like a Great Dane.
