We just returned from a week at Grayson Highlands State Park. Toby hiked his little heart out. We are so lucky to have a dog who loves to hike as much as we do. He's a super camper too - doesn't bark, is fearless in thunderstorms, sleeps well under the picnic table and in the tent with us. He spotted a deer in the woods while hiking off-leash, gave chase, and seconds later before serious panic set in, he trotted back to us. Yay for recall training! (After that we kept him leashed though. Good thing too, as we spotted several more deer later on.)
Here's a slide show of our hiker dog's exploits this week:
Another wonderful mountain dog needs our thoughts and "good vibes" today. KB Bear's beautiful R is very ill. Please visit Romping and Rolling in the Rockies to wish R well.
