Today I got to go on a hike with Tim and Melanie who live about 15 miles (about 25km) away along with Clarence, their dog. Plus, blogging friends from Ranch Run-A-Muck along with some of their 13 rescues. The humans are (these are their names for themselves): “Crabby” and “The Crazy Lady”
Both the Crazy Lady and He thought each other lived someplace else but actually they live on the same street! They’re about five miles apart (8 km) but you can’t drive there directly because the street doesn’t go through or over the mountain that’s between them. I got to go because Kyla has sensitive feet in the winter and booties don’t help. Kaci could have gotten sunburned (it was about 70F, 20C and very sunny). Mom stayed home with Kyla and Kaci.
This spot is only about 7 miles (10km) from where we live. When we started hiking, there was civilization
but we left that behind
and the terrain got a little rougher until he hit a watering hole
One of Run-a-Muck’s dogs is my new sweetheart, his name is DASH!
Also along was Emmi, a very sweet pit bull rescue
We weren’t the only ones out here
Kyla would have gone bonkers at the horses.
I felt discriminated against. Every other dog was allowed to run free-but not ME? Can you believe that?
There was also a dog that was very similar to Kaci and her name is Gracie. Bad news, I don’t have a great shot of her because she was always away doing her own thing (like I should have been allowed to do). Gracie is the one at the top where her head isn’t shown.
There wasn’t a growl or any unpleasantness in the entire morning. I know that we dogs would be fine but I’m proud of the humans-I was worried about them. I want to do this again.
That is so cooowooowooool!
Great time-we wish you were there also
Too fun for everyone. Humans and all the cute woof woofs too.
Have a woof woof day. My best to your humans. 🙂
Kyla here. That was Kali’s first post and I think she did very well. She thought it would be relegated to your competitor, “Comedy Minus”.
What a treat to be able to go by yourself, Kali! Looks like a great place to investigate…lots of great smells. Those other pups look like fun, too. Good think you kept your peep on the walking string…..might have wandered off.
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
You’re right. I know from experience that there may be only one tree in a vast area and goof ball will walk into it. What would He do without canine help?
You are lucky to have new friends and get to go on adventures with them. It is sad that Kyla and Kaci had to stay home, but you got some bonding time with your dad.
You know these youngsters. Kali didn’t care about Dad, it was all about meeting DASH!
It was so great meeting you and Kali today! We must do it again! BTW: DASH! has asked for Kali’s mailing address so he can send her something smelly as a symbol of his affection.
Mailing address sent. Kali loved it too and would love to romp with Dash!
Awesome on the mailing addy! I’ll take DASH! out to find the perfect dead squirrel for Kali this weekend! May have to take Angus with us, he knows where all the best smelly things are!
Yup, you certainly won’t be able to spot much on your own 🙂
DASH! moves to fast to find anything on his own.
Kaci is quick also, maybe they can find something by outrunning it.
This looks like a fun outing. I think it’s cool the peeps got together and all the doggies had so much fun.
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
I agree and I’m a little peeved that I didn’t get to go.
Aww! What a fun adventure. Too bad we weren’t closer to have a meetup of our own! Hope you had fun. Much love, The Scottie Mom.
Yeah, if we met half way, it would probably be Dallas. Kaci, Kali and I will just have to love you long distance.
That’s pawesome you got to go hiking with a bunch of cool puppers and got yourself a boyfriend out of it. I don’t think you were being discriminated against it’s just that Kyla and Kaci just got you and they wanted to make sure you were safe while they weren’t with you.
Aroo to you,
You’re exactly right, Sully. What’s home and familiar to us is strange to a newcomer and she could get lost.
What pawsome milestones Kali – an adventure and your very first post! We know you were frustrated about being kept on the lead but we think your dad was right, you don’t know the area and just now you got lost or something. As for Dash…what can we say, he looks rather dashing *BOL* oh we crack ourselves up!! Well, we loved hearing from you and all about your outing. Tell Kyla and Kaci we say “aroooo”
Wally & Sammy
Kaci and I hear you, our chinas.
Wish we could meet up and go for a day out 🙂 What a fun time you had xxoxxx
Mollie and Alfie
That would be great. I don’t think the AlienLifeForm would like it, however.
That looks like fun, pack walks are the best!
It was Kali’s first-so many new to her dogs.
Oh my you really went out for a desert walk. What fun to meet other bloggers. Lee would have preferred to ride a horse.
Sweet William The Scot
We have to exercise our humans otherwise They get fat and lazy. They need to be in shape to keep our meals coming!
What a fun day playing with friends
We didn’t know them before. Kali had a great time. I wish we could hold a bloggers’ convention, but with all of us spread out in the world, it can’t happen.
We want to go there too!!!
Me too. If I can ignore the fact that I’m old for my breed, and I have a problem walking, I’d hike with them also.
Can always behave like the empress and expect to be carried around :P…
That might work. Do you have a spare empire that you’re not using?
Oh My Lord. Meeting bloggers…what a blast. Well then, that makes up for the little nip on the foot in the food wars when she arrived.
She’ll never do that again. Kaci and I want to go, but probably won’t be allowed.
