This is my two year old Chocolate Lab Kona. She loves to play outside and particularly in deeper snow.

First 14er summit on a windy Democrat - She was happy up there although she looks more disgusted in the picture

Love this thread and will use it to do my first post...I'm a multi-year lurker and multi-month member, but like so many, more of a watcher than a poster. We found this little guy a year and half ago, and he now has eleven 14ers under his little belt. Frisco is the "climbingest PomChi in the Rockies!"

I love these pictures of my dog, Bailey. She's no longer with us, but for 16 years she was as good as it gets. She loved nothing more than our days hiking in the mountains.

Spriggs! His first 14er was Handies when he was about 5 months old. He is a Puggle/Lhasa Apso mix, better known as a mutt. He's a surprisingly capable climber, and being a smaller dog his paws hold up really well under his weight. His name came from a delirious conversation involving some made up characters on a late drive home from the San Juans, officially Detective Spriggs.

Here he is on American and S. Arapaho Peak(s) this summer...

This is my dog Maddie and she is a 14 lb 3 year old Cockapoo. This is her first year doing 14er's and so far she has done 7. In the past I had never taken her with me on longer hikes because I wasn't sure how she would do. This last winter I started taking her up Mt Morrison with me and watched how she loved to climb and run up the rocks. On 14er's she looks like a little mountain dog running through the rocks sniffing out marmots. As long as I bring food, water and treats for her she will hike forever.

I have brought dogs out to Colorado with me only 3 times. I have some great pics and great memories, but it's tough when you are staying in a hotel. I have enjoyed every photo put here so far, and know I will be watching for more. I think a calendar is a great idea. I volunteer, foster and transport for a German Shepherd Dog rescue (MVGSDR), we do a calendar every year. They take some work to put together, but they are inexpensive to print and we sell them for $15, $17 if it needs to be mailed. Instead of one dog pic per page, we have 4-5 in collage groupings.

Someone needs to start on this now! It's a fabulous way to promote Colorado, mountains and the love of dogs. The calendars would need to be ready before November to get them sold before the end of the year. http://www.photoscramble.com/contests/2013-calendar-photo-contest/

Ok, this thread has gotten pretty exclusionary. Kafka, my cat, is a far more accomplished climber than me, or your puppies.

Here he is negotiating the Ellingwood Arete. Sorry the other climber got in the way. It was crowded up there.
