Hiking Training

By the weirdest fluke ever, the weather here last week was actually not unbearably hot! It was like 80 degree and no hoomidity (don't worry, it's back to the normal gabillion degrees and 1000% hoomidity).

It was so nice, we actually got to go for an afternoon walk! I know what you're thinking "Shut the front door!" well we did, we shut it and set off!

Mom put my backback on me so we could carry waters and my bowl, and she also said it would be good for me to get back into the swing of wearing it. We are only:


away from our vacay/mountain hiking trip. OMD I'm so excited!! So time to train!

Now, I don't need much training, I'm a pro yo. I got this hiking thing down pat. I know my "Stops" and "Sits" and even the dreaded "Leave Its" so I'm good to go. But now I have a new task, of keeping an eye on the Bald Puppy. So we started off easy at the grassy area at the school by our house.

I taught him how to follow me through the rugged terrain....

Not to go too far or I will be forced to run after you and herd you back...


Do not taunt the Anna with sticks, or ....

 ...the Anna will take your stick!!

 But most of all, that the trail is fun and it's good to have a hiking buddy!

All in all he did pretty good! He walked the whole way there, around there and back home for about a total of a bit over a mile. Can't wait for it to get cool again so we can do more training!


  1. we just hope bald puppy doesn't get to tired and decide to ride you all the way home !

  2. BOL BOL funny Reilly's comment. Stay cool now and hope you get cooler weather so you both can go out again. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly
