Did you know there is a law that you have to keep children under 10 on a leash?
And humans and dogs can legally marry!
And there is about to be a law that doctors get to kill old people if there health care bill is getting too high!


That's what I'm talking about! Woo hoo! I'm glad you are with me on this one. :wink:

Maybe Linda is new in this site, I am not. I don't really care what you do with your pets or if you have a dog and you bring him with you to the mountains. What I really care is that a lot of people brings their dogs to the mountains and they don't fallow the law. There is a law restriction for dogs being in the wild, every body knows it and no body cares. So before start taking about what Linda said, why you don't start fallowing the DOG LAW RESTRICTION and people like Linda and I wont be spending time talking with you.

The LAW says: To allow any dog or other pet on Parks and Outdoor Recreation Lands, unless the same shall be under control and on a leash not exceeding six (6) feet in length. This requirement for dogs or other pets to be on a six foot leash shall not apply when the animal is confined in a vehicle or vessel. Further, it shall be unlawful to allow a dog or other pet within any area used as a swimming or water-ski beach. Any person having a dog or other pet creating a nuisance or disturbance or who fails to properly control a dog or other pet may be evicted from the park or recreation area.

By the way, I don't see you guys a lot in winter in this forum. This is a hiking & climbing site, I guess. But I can see that in summer this site become a nice place for all of you to spend some time attacking others climbers when they are right. Please, don't reply me back with anger, I am right because the LAW says that. So, keep your anger with you or find the way to seat in it, be careful could be hot.

If you pretend that you don't know the Colorado State Parks and Trails Restrictions, you can inform your self about what you can and what you can't do with your dog:

I don't recall anyone being incredibly 'angry' on this thread. When someone uses such terms as 'stupid pets,' you can bet there will be some response. I don't really care what other people think about having dogs in the backcountry. I am bringing my dog, my friends' dog, and any other dog that wants to spend the day being happy. If I am breaking the 'LAW' and upsetting a few, then so be it. I think there are a lot more things you people should be concerned with.

The comparision between children, and dogs in this forum is the most ridiculous thing I've every witnessed on this website!!! Real low-brow stuff there people.

Somehow I felt this was fitting, at least now it's a justification for why they made this horrible movie:

When I saw that this was +100 replies, I figured that someone resurrected an old thread.... Wow, was I wrong. It should reach 1000 in no time. This one will make for good reading tonight on graveyard shift.
:cartman:

I don't have dogs or kids, but I think they all have their place on a mountain.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

My dog IS stupid, but she still gets to go to the mountains from time to time :roll:

You can't make all the people happy all the time, but 90% of the people I run across with her on trails seem to think she is alright. I keep her on leash when in crowds, I pick up after her, and she will not chase wildlife if I tell her not to. I would love for most of the people with kids on 14ers to claim the same.

How is that low-brow? To some of us, our dogs ARE our kids. Because non-dog-lovers don't understand that, we get labeled as the whacko's

I saw a three-legged dog come down from Missouri the other day. It's name was Remington and he was named after the shotgun that took his leg. It was probably one of the most incredible things I have ever seen: a peak-bagging three-legged dog. Also, my roommates dog pooped over the edge of the Sawtooth, which was also one of the most extreme things I've seen any living thing do. I wish I got it on film.

This thread is completely ridiculous. Thanks for giving me a good wake up during a hangover.

I don't know, seems pretty apt to me. But, I have teenage boys.
