If anyone can look at these pictures and not get a smile on their face there is something seriously wrong with them.
Lots of good dog mom and dads out there.

Is that a dog-specific bag or just a light people bag?


It's my wife's old synthetic bag. When we got the second dog, we moved up to a 3-person tent and they share a bag in the middle.

This is Lucy taking in the view. We will both be attempting our first 14er tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have an even better picture in 24 hours!

South Boulder Peak - One of my favorites of Ranger, he's one happy dog on the trail.

I got Zion from a shelter when he was six months old and he's been my best friend ever since. He's getting a little older now and slowing down a bit, so we've had to cut back. But once snow comes along, he's like a puppy again.

I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect dog to accompany me on long runs and hikes. any suggestions? I'm not in any hurry to pick a dog, but i really want one that LOVES to be outside with me. I do run 5+ miles a pop each morning, but will be in an apt for a year until i buy a house next year.

A Rhodesian Ridgeback or a Belgian Malinois would be able to keep up with you. I have a Mal... best dog ever!

"Rescues" are generally a pain in the ass, and that one looks no different. Application, phone interview, home inspection, contracts. Go to the humane society and be done with it.

This is true. The rescue we got our dog from also fought to stay the primary contact for the microchip contact with us, the owners, being the secondary.

I (and my wife with me) tend to move around a bit, it would be stupid to have a CO rescue, in a constant state of fiscal uncertainty, as the main contact when we're living in Montana or wherever the hell we go next.

Nevertheless, the rescue did bring our dog in from a Missouri shelter where she was on a kill list.

Our Golden Retriever, Nala, loves to run and be outside. She hasn't climbed any 14ers yet, but maybe next summer!

I'm sorry that I don't have any pet dogs to climb with. I'm stuck climbing with my own two dogs, known as my feet, and boy are they barking at the end of a hike! :mrgreen:
