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.

Took the dogs back up to Blackwater River State Park to one of the lakes today. This was a much longer trail than the last one, clocking in at 4 miles. It was a bit warm, but we had plenty of water and the dogs really enjoyed themselves. Ghost's boyfriend Caesar joined in on this hike as well.

Hill?! Where? Wink

I had a lab mix in Florida about 18 years ago, I also took her hiking a lot in Florida. I'd let her off leash when we are deep in the woods and she'd run around real happy. But I never let her off leash when we are near any type of water: streams, rivers, lakes, even a mud hole. I was always afraid she might get too close to a "log" that turn out not to be a log at all. Luckily it never happened and she lived to the rip old age of 15 before passing to the doggie heaven.

Exactly Razz

I had no problem letting her frolic around in the river last weekend, because it was clear and shallow where we were. Around Bear Lake? Yeah, never. Not only gators but snakes.
