What a beautiful autumn day we had today. It was warm, but not too hot for the dogs and not a breath of wind. I mention the wind, because Lethbridge is notorious for it's wind, especially in the spring and fall, and for the past few days it has been blowing like crazy. It is just miserable to go walking when the wind is howling. Today was perfect!
The dogs and I met up with my friend Janet and her young Bernese boy Tucker. We all enjoyed a nice, long walk along the park trails. Tucker is 9 months old and is starting to look like a grown-up Bernese. All his fluffy puppy fur is gone and he is getting his beautiful adult coat and is looking very handsome.

I love Tuckers "Swiss Cross". It is often a desired Bernese trait to have a nice, white cross on the chest. It is not a trait that is in the Bernese standard, rather it goes back to Swiss tradition. The cross is most noticeable on young dogs, but as the long, heavy coat starts to grow in, the cross is less prominent.
