Mountain Trip

Yesterday we took a trip out to Fernie for the day.  The dogs love to go to the mountains.  We spent a couple hours hiking around the trails and enjoying the mountain scenery.

"Are we there yet?"

Maggie got to hike with the backpack.  She seemed very proud of herself and I liked that she got to carry her own water, treats and poop bags.

We took along Bosley's cart so that he could get some practice in a setting that has lots of natural obstacles.  Some of those narrow trails were quite hard to negotiate, but he did pretty good.  His response time to directional cues need a bit more work - or maybe I just need to get the cues out earlier.

Here is a picture of the 3 of us.

Bosley usually hates to get his feet wet and will do anything he can to avoid stepping in water.  Here is proof that he actually won't melt if he gets wet.  He walked right into the cold mountain stream.
All the mountain air tired the dogs out and they were ready for bed early last night (and so was I).


  1. What a nice way to unwind and have fun after your "dazed and confused" time last weekend! Those mountain streams taste so good, too!

  2. looks like a great day Kim!!!
