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.

So, my wife and I spent the previous week in Island Park, ID. We stayed at a family cabin. I thought I'd share some photos from the week.

Me with Appa and Willow by a little stream, this was shortly after our 5.5hr drive.


This is what Willow looked like almost the entire week. She was great and never had any desire to run away so she stayed off leash. She romped and played in the woods all day long. We thought maybe she'd keep Appa close by if we let him off leash, within 10 seconds I was chasing him through the woods down a hill. Silly me. He stayed on-leash the rest of the week.


They played hard, and worked up a thirst. I actually moved the bowl on to the table to prevent them from stepping on it. We looked over to find this sight. (by the way, love the bowl)


This was Appa's first trip in a little boat. He did great. We floated down the snake river for about 3 hours the following day (forgot a camera). He sat majestically at the front of the boat almost the entire time. No fussing. Part way down it was shallow enough to touch, so we let him out to swim and cool off. He didn't like it one bit. He wanted back in the boat as quickly as possible. I don't think we got one of those water loving pups. When we finished our trip down the river he ran up onto dry land and started going to the bathroom instantly. He must have been holding it, and never fussed once. He's a good guy.


And right before we got in the car to head home.

Boy is getting HUGE!!! I can vividly imagine the instant you realized, "crap, this isn't gonna work." Definitely some sled brain action there.


So... How was the drive?

Thanks guys! I'll try to get some more pictures up... Yeah, he is getting big. We ran into some neighbors last night who have a boxer. When we got Appa their boxer was quite a bit bigger than Appa, now he stands taller than her. Our neighbor just laughed at how huge he's getting. When I took him in to get neutered on the 5th he was 59lbs and still going (although it might be backwards with how much hair he's losing right now). My wife keeps laughing at me "you would have picked out a monster dog!". Remember, she wanted a yorkie... But Appa thinks he's a lap dog some times, so she got what she wanted. Sorta.

The drive was as fantastic as you could have asked for, both there and back. We made one pit stop about halfway both times for food/water/bathroom/running around. Most of the time he just slept or stared out the windows.
