Cody is my 6 year old Aussie (female). We moved to Colorado this May, and she's climbed twelve 14ers this summer! Here she is scrambling up rocks on Mt. Evans and on the summit of Mt. Belford. She absolutely loves climbing 14ers and is an amazing hiking/running partner!

I swear my Aussie gets a 'runners high' after summiting a 14er and has more energy after we're done! It takes her almost an hour to finally realize how tired she is :)

My hiking partner is Polar, a 4-year old wooly malamute. She was a stray that I adopted when I was working as a climbing guide in China. She's not exactly a 14ers dog, since I don't take her on 14ers due to the crowd. But she has climbed higher than most (if not all) of the 14ers dogs. I guess you can say she's a 17er dog. We mostly enjoy hiking less crowded trails and climbing 13ers from time to time.

My border collie, Suti. She not only got 5 14ers and many many backpacking miles, but she flown on a hydroplane, scrambles like a rockstar, rode an airboat, kayaked, jetskied, and saw 2 space shuttle launches. She also got her own Facebook page. Yeah, I am obsessed with my dog :) She is 9 years old, and I really hope I will be just like her at that age - still rocking it. Pffftttt.

You never conquer a mountain.
You stand on the summit a few moments,
Then the wind blows your footprints away.

Gunnar (l) and Kodi - My two Norwegian Elkhounds that were my hiking partners and forever best friends. I took this pic on top of Mount Princeton almost 25 years ago. They probably did 20 or so 14ers with me and lots of 13ers. They've been gone for 17 years and I still miss them

Merlin is a aussie shepherd, blue heeler, catahoula, or blue merle border collie mix... who knows. He's about 1 year old. His first mountain.

At the summit of Mt Elbert. He's a short haired dog and gets cold easily, but never tires. The softshell didn't seem to do much so I stuffed my puffy down jacket inside his and he wasn't shivering anymore :)
