Here's my girl, Sophie, heading up Bierstadt earlier this year. This was her second 14er. Couldn't be more proud of my best friend.

Anyone else remember Jared Workman and his climbing parakeet? (Seriously)

I loved seeing those photos, crazy stuff. Weren't they some type of Macaw?

I also feel left out, as I'm very allergic to dogs of the non-hypo-allergenic kind. If only I could take Annapurna climbing, she was so good at it as a kitten! But there are too many dogs on the mountain, she wouldn't like it at all!

It would be a shame if he lost the old one, it had so much history. Don't worry, those cops and lawyers will never climb hard enough to catch him.

This has finally devolved enough that I feel I can post the non-hiking pup I mentioned yesterday in that "other" dog thread. Behold, Tenacious D (Darlene):

To the person who said she was getting ideas about hiking/climbing buddies from this thread--this is NOT what you're looking for. It's apropos that folks started posting cats, because essentially, this is a 60lb version.

I don't take the pet hiking because my wife bought this...thing. I think it might be an Ewok.
