Waterfall Hiking!

Hello furiends! Look at me hiking!!!I love hiking! We went to a county park with lots of streams and waterfalls. Don't worry--I was careful not to get my feet wet! I got to walk about half of the time, and the rest of the time Mommy carried me in my orange backpack. I am slowly working my way back up to being a "trail dog." Before my back surgeries, I used to walk the whole way on our hikes. Now I can only do a little walking and mostly riding. But I still have fun!
This time we were hiking with friends, which we don't normally do. It turns out that I HATE riding when we are hiking with friends! I like to be in the front of the pack, and if I have to ride or walk in the back, I get very upset and mush like a sled dog until I can reach the front of the group. This, as you might imagine, is not so great for my back.

Mommy and Daddy did a bad thing last weekend. They went hiking without me! They went to a park that does not allow dogs. I can't imagine! So I cannot show you any pictures of me from this hike because I was not there! Humph!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Bye for now,
Poppy the LBC

Hi Poppy,

I am glad to see you are out on the trail again. I have only been hiking once, when mom took me, Banjo and Pink Baby to Indian Cave this past spring. I didn't like being in the back then either. BOL

Wags & wiggles,
Bijou

Good to see you you are out hiking. Little by little you'll get better. You look great. What kind of stupid park doesn't allow doggies? We have a few around here.

You are so lucky to do such exciting things Poppy. How dare your mum and dad go hiking without you - sheesh, these humans! Glad to hear your back is feeling better.
Wags and kisses, Dinah and Bridget xx
