'My Friend Kobe, Obey's at Will'

This morning, Kobe my dog started barking. This is what he does each day, whenever the deer walk through the woods. They are so use to Kobe's racket, they seldom even look in this direction! Today, I got tired of hearing him bark and decided to put an end to it. Kobe just keeps up the noise, when he sees my face in the window or hears my commands from the back porch. So I pulled a trick on him. Instead of speaking in my own voice, I stood out of sight and spoke in a gruff lower tone, 'Do I have to come out there?' He immediately stopped barking and went inside his house for a nap! Kobe thought he was dealing with my husband, Jay lol

Yes, Kobe is absolutely the most caring dog, that I've ever owned! When I go outside, he sticks by me like glue:)

@LadyDuck During the blizzard, Kobe's favorite ball got buried somewhere:( We might not be able to play ball, until this snow melts!

you certainly fooled Kobe! He is such a handsome boy! He resembles Amber my sister's black lab/pit bull mix. but amber is a tiny bit more pit bull. (despite being part pit bull she is like Kobe, a real sweetheart!)

I'm not real sure, but I think Kobe has a mixture of pit-bull, also. Around his chin, Kobe has all kinds of white hair, mixed in with the black ones. Around his lips, too.

@kobesbuddy my sister's dog looks more like a pit bull than a black lab. her dog has the ears of a pit bull. if Kobe has part pit bull it proves my theory that a pit bull raised right will not be a violent or rough dog, Just like possibly your Kobe if he has any in him and Amber my sister's dog

That's great, it's something about a deep voice that makes dog listen.

When he hears my high pitched voice, Kobe runs to find his ball and wants to play catch!

He's such a sweetheart, yet Kobe doesn't like anything coming too close to his backyard.

@kobesbuddy The pups over here bark at most anything, too. I put my foot down and really let Leah have a good ear full the day she started zipping after a huge farm tractor that was going down the road. Leah found out what a real ticked off Mom voice is that day. NO biting huge tires. Ignore the noise. NOW.

@kobesbuddy Exactly. That day that Leah thought she could run up onto that road and bite that large noisy tire, there was a pick up right behind the tractor. Leah found out that her Mom can yell and yell very loudly when frightened.

When dealing with a male, Kobe is very obedient! With me, he thinks everything is just fun and games! lol

I really enjoyed this story of how you can make Kobe obey your commands. Kobe looks like my sister's dog Poochie.
