Forum Rules
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.

Bodhi and I met up with Jennifer and Ken Bealer (on vacation from Colorado without Sierra, Jack and Finn)) for three days in the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. We camped at Sequim Bay State Park and climbed Mt. Townsend via Dirty Face Ridge. This peak is less than half the altitude of what they are used to climbing. It's a steep trail, but I think the only one whose quads weren't screaming the next day was Bodhi!

Melissa, how do you keep your Husky from nipping at your other dogs? RIght now this is such a problem with ENzo, who is 4 months old. Thanks

Maybe in a year Enzo and Bodhi can go on a hike together. We have relatives in Marblemount and do hikes off North Cascades Highway sometimes in summer. Recommendation: Thunder Creek to NPS boundary.
