Pixel's World

Pixel Goes to Kubota Garden!

The weather is getting colder here in Seattle, but the rain has held off long enough to give us a uniquely beautiful fall. Normally, the rain would have washed all the colorful leaves off the trees by now, but not this year!

We decided that Pixel might like to take a trip to the beautiful Kubota Japanese Garden in South Seattle. We went early on a brisk Monday morning, so not only was the day still new, but we were the only group there. How fortunate!

Pixel decided to take it easy by the pond at first so he could get used to the sights and smells.

One thing that seemed to really interest Pixel was the pond. Although there weren’t any Koi swimming around this time of year, Pixel was still excited to be around the water. Strange for a canine who usually tries his best to avoid swimming!

Pixel carefully inspects a narrow, stone bridge.

When Pixel came across a narrow, stone bridge crossing over the pond, he was clearly hesitant. His balance is quite good, but sometimes he gets nervous about falling in! (Not that he’s ever fallen in the water before. 😉 )

After some careful doggy deliberation, he mustered up the courage to take on the bridge full speed ahead! It was quite cold out–maybe he thought he could sniff out some of his beloved ice cream?

Pixel channels his inner beast and conquers the narrow pond bridges.  🐶

When Pixel was satisfied that he had properly shown-off on the little stone bridges, he was ready to move on to something bigger (safer?). He led us to a beautiful, red, Japanese-style bridge right next to some of the prettiest trees in the garden.

All in all, Pixel had a ton of fun at Kubota Garden. Something tells us he can’t wait to go back!
