1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

A perfect day for our hike- 75 degrees and no wind.
Silver Star is in the middle of the Yacolt Burn.
This was the site of Washington's biggest forest fire in 1902.

Bodhi had a great time and met lots of other dogs.

Beautiful beautiful pictures, that scenery is just gorgeous! As is Bodhi Smile (he looks a little fluffier than I remember!) second pic from the bottom belongs in a frame, it's just the most perfect picture. Looks like you guys had a great time!

Love the scenery. I don't think I could ever leave if I got there. How far did you hike?

It was about seven miles total.

Bodhi met a six month old female Bernese Mt. Dog on the way down.
She was a little intimidated by Bodhi at the beginning- he is what we call "enthusiastic", jumping up on his hind feet and trying to woo-woo in his non existant voice.
We hiked for awhile together.
Bodhi was on his long lead, and the BMD was off-leash.
The dog would run past Bodhi and collapse in some shade.
We'd walk by; the dog would stay in the shade resting until her owners reached her.
They get her going; she'd run past us and the whole sequence would start again!

Bodhi had a bath today.
Maybe he's less furry now.
I took off a shopping bag of fuzz.

Does Bodhi look less furry now?
This was today- after the bath and defuzzification project.

He looks great! You take the best pics of him! This weekend I gotta defuzzify mine, haha, supposed to be in the triple digits! They don't need any unnecessary coat on them and their bath a couple weeks ago loosened up a lot of it.

Good luck with those upcoming temps, Jimmy.
The dogs will probably be down for the count until it's over.

Direct sun is what does Bodhi in.
On our hike last weekend, it wasn't hotter than 75.
But he went through a whole water bottle.
He'd start jumping when he saw me pull it off the pack.

Thanks Michael! We usually don't get this kind of heat for a few more months, and temps here have been so mild up til now that the dogs (and humans, haha) I think will be wherever there is shade Smile I'm thinkin it might be time they got used to the pool, lol.

Bodhi sounds a lot like Mishka with the direct sunlight, if there is shade on a hike (and our hike is nothing like yours!) Mishka will find it, same with the water, she hops up on me when I'm getting it out, haha.
