We've heard a lot from hikers and dog owners, but not a single post by a dog.

What gives?
Did you know that the word gullible is NOT in the dictionary?

In fact she has a great love of nature and the outdoor life as we have hiked and camped with her since she was a baby. Nobody enjoys badly behaved kids (or dogs,) but there are respectful kids out there, and a parent sharing his or her love of the outdoors is so healthy for the kid


Yes, it's ridiculous because it's meant to be. It's called irony! I've read somewhere that irony is one of the hardest concepts for kids, but I guess the same goes for adults. :roll:

I must say, that waking up at 3am to an incessantly barking dog at Kite Lake the other night was not pleasant. Not to mention, the two dogs I almost ran over with my jeep, when they nonchalantly ran in front of my truck in the dark, while the owners were apparently unconcerned. So whoever said, it's the people, +1. Tell your dogs to shut the hell up! And keep them from underneath my wheels!
