Larry and I are about to embark on our first hiking expedition. I got him a dog backpack from RuffWear for Christmas, and today is the first opportunity we've had to use it. I'm going to keep his pack empty and carry the stuff myself - I don't want his first experience with the pack to be a bad one.
We're heading to a State Park that is about 30 miles away and should get there about the time of sunrise. They have tons of hiking trails, so I think we should have a great time!
Wish us luck!
We got back home around 11:00 am, after a good two hour hike. This was our first one, so I didn't want him to go too long with the pack on. We had a great time and look forward to going back (maybe next weekend )
Here are some photos of the trip.
Seriously? You want to go all the way down there?
Hmm, what's over there?
Hidin' in the tall grass.
Can I go swimming?
This hiking stuff is pretty hard work. Let's take a break!
It sounds like you have a great day planned! Have fun!
Teresa, mom to Brigetta and Prudence
Have Fun!!! We are big hikers here too ;D (take lots of pics!)
Hope you take tons of pictures.
Sounds like great fun. How long is the hike?
That's funny that you said that, because Larry takes it very seriously when he puts his backpack on, even if he just walks around the house in it. He thinks he's something else with that thing on! Good pictures Doyle!Originally Posted by rushpuppy
PS - Next time you should make Katherine go with you.
he didn't mind the pack? Lucy would give me that look..."what the"
Good boy Larry. You are going to be having some good times and adventures in your future.
