Dog Days of Autumn




This evening after work, Cowboy and I took our usual walk and I finally remembered to bring my camera. The fall leaves are changing quickly and I wanted to try and get some pictures of the leaves and Cowboy outside. We went to our usual haunt, St. Ignatius' Cemetery. It really is a gorgeous place to walk and one of my favorite places in town.

Don't I have the handsomest pup in the world?


Cowboy has had a bit of a transformation over the last two weeks. Right before I took him to be boarded, I'd been working a lot on basic obedience. I took him to a different kennel while I was in Hershey and I think they did quite a bit of work with him as well. Last night we went to a drop in obedience class and there were two other dogs in the class. I was so proud of how well he did. He was much less aggressive and agitated and did very well remembering all his commands. And tonight when we walked, I took him out without using the Gentle Leader collar and he was quite good. I think he's finally coming around to trust me and is even now seeking me out for attention. But of course he's no angel - tonight I came home to find he'd chewed off the cover of one of my rental books which of course I now own courtesy of Cowboy! LOL Can't get to comfortable can I?

I had that trouble with one of my two...my female actually. I had to on the vets advice cage them when I was not at home, it's better when I come in there is no shredded kleenex. You might want to see if that is a good thing for Cowboy

Awww! Cowboy is so cute! Love the autumnal pictures as well - must see if we can take some this weekend, although I don't think the trees are quite that far along over here.

Beautiful photos! Cowboy is darling, I hope someday to meet him in person! I am glad that he is starting to trust you and that his *vacation* while we were at CATS was a success!

Upstate is ablaze in color too! It's the peak of leaf season...the day is perfect so I may take your cue and take some pictures too!
I've just decorated my front porch for fall and now I am in the autumn *mood*.

It's looking like fall here too. Today's weather was a little weird, but it made for a gorgeous sky with lots of clouds and layers of color as a backdrop for the riot of brightness on the trees! :D
