In between searching for squirrels and bugs, Bella sat for a quick photo.
The weather was hot and not much was going on.
And thus, Fall formally arrived.
I'm amazed how white Bella's face has become since puppyhood and the First Day of Fall 2017: https://pbase.com/britestar/image/166247661 That sometimes happens with black muzzled dogs... Bella is just 5 years old and as frisky as ever. Her sitting still like this - while outdoors - is a rare moment. She's usually constantly on the go. Guess today was just too hot for the squirrels or deer or groundhog or even birds to be around for her to bark at. I wasn't asking Bella to pose, but I like this photo.
