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.

I will not be nearly as good a Harrise with describing our hike but though I would share anyway Smile Danielle, Ken and I meet in Boulder with our dogs Gunny, Sierra, and Jack at about 9 am and carpooled to the trail well at least I tried to but went the wrong way at first, after finding the trail and a parking spot we got the dogs out and leashed up to start our first hike with our dogs and for Ken and I the first one of the season which is sad to say. It was warm all ready and we headed up the trial. Making sure to give the dogs water before starting and then again before we stared the steep part. The dogs did a great job and Sierra was even hoping up some parts which made my job of keeping up with her harder! I should not have spent 2 hrs at the gym on Sat. and then not getting enough sleep! We took a few breaks in the shad to let the dogs (and us) recoup. It was not super busy as we were heading up the side most people choose to come down. We made it to the top and headed back down. That was the part I was worried about since the dogs acted like they did not just clime a mountain and were still full of energy as we were running low and the way down was not easy as there were deep steps and slick rock to watch out for. We got to one area where Danielle and Gunny got a head of us cause Sierra got scared and would not go around this boulder to get down the trail! She had gotten scared before but after watching her mommy take the steps she would follow, but not this time. Ken climbed back up and picked her up and carried her down, I don’t know what I would have done if he was not with us! Then she was back to bouncing down the trail, that silly girl! We got down and it took just over 3hrs and it should have only taken about 2 but we stopped a lot on the way up. We had a ton of fun and will take them with us again! We go camping in 2 weeks so we will see how that goes.

I told Danielle to post her pics... I hope she does all the ones of her are on her camera since I took them for her! Yes that backpack is familiar and was way too big for Gunny! I told her she should get a new one but he still walked ok with it. The one Jack has we got at petsmart and it is a Med. and was still a bit loose around the belly for him Sad I hope he fills out some more. they were not to dirty from the hike but we all washed off a good layer of dirt from our legs! Sierra and Jack got a bath anyway after that since it has been about 6 months since there last one.

Forgive me. The wife does a "your mom" to nearly anything anyone utters. So, it all comes across that way to me.
