Our New Friend with #Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #184!

The metal butterfly above is a new photo, but it's from an outing that I've been posting about on 1camera1mom. If you want to see more of the wine region where we live, then visit my latest seriesThe Hex River Valley.

Our New Friend

Our new friend is our dog, Koda. When we got him from the shelter, he didn't come with a dejected countenance, so there wasn't any transformation like in the stories, but he did blossom. At first, he wouldn't run after we let him off the leash. Now he runs freely and sometimes with such reckless abandon that I fear he does so without thinking. He also now barks back at dogs that bark at him, not aggressively, but in conversation. He has brought a spark back into our lives. Benny enjoys his company too.

He isn't perfect, though. He still needs further training and we do work with him every day. He unfortunately chased Amanda's cat up a telephone poll on our property about two weeks ago. We were worried that she wouldn't be able to get down on her own, but after sitting there and contemplating her options, she decided to head down the poll backwards. We were so relieved.
