Like dogs through the Hourglass, so are the hikes of our lives.
So pleas'd at first the towering Alps we try,
Mount o'er the vales, and seem to tread the sky,
Th' increasing prospects tire our wand'ring eyes,
Hills peep o'er hills, and Alps on Alps arise!
-- Alexander Pope

This is how you climb the hourglass as a dog in proper gear. Dont forget your gun and ropes.

Better the dog in a sling than your ass in one. Glad to hear you were not hurt and sorry your day was spoiled by an unintelligent and insensitive clod (who probably thinks they are a smart climber and dog lover). When are we gonna read about the first 14er dog fatality?!? geez! :wft:

More importantly, when are we going to read about the first 14er fatality CAUSED by a dog because an irresponsible owner took their dog on a route they had no business being on.

Spot on. Either one tragic.

After reading some of these dog stories the past few months, I am starting to wonder if owning a dog makes you dumber. Do they carry highly communicable diseases that impair human judgment?
