14er Checklist (57)

I would strongly agree -- my labs think that 14ers are just about the coolest thing imaginable, between the excitement of the hiking and meeting all the cool people (just ask the WEE participants from early this month!).

This is Bex and Dex (black and yellow, respectively), lolling on the snow beneath Torreys last year.

From what I've seen dogs do very well on 14ers. If you think about it they have about twice the Vo2 Max that humans do. They shouldn't have any trouble with the altitude. All the dogs that I've seen are about twice as active as humans and have plenty of energy after an ascent.
Quit whining and move your %$# up that mountain.
