I got everyone out for one last hike on Friday.
First up was Maya, Theo, and Trooper.
|One thing about being at the tail end of the pack,|
I get to observe a lot of dog tails. Maya and Theo
always carry their's up and curved when they are
on the trail and excited.
|It sometimes gets a little crowded|
for three dogs on a narrow trail.
|Maya will often move off to the side or even|
drop back to walk near me, except when
Summer is along. She doesn't want to cede
the lead position to another female dog.
After two miles, I took Trooper and Theo back home and picked up Max and Summer to take their place for another two miles.
|Summer has her nose to the ground most of the time when we are walking. The other two|
use their eyes and ears more to scan the forest and look for deer.
I took Summer back home and picked up Sparky for the final two miles. Everyone got at least two miles, Max got four and Maya and I had six.
|Sparky walks fine with Maya and Max, but I have my doubts about how he'd do with either|
Trooper or Theo.
