The weather cooperated this weekend so we hit our favorite hiking spot again. The weather canceled a couple of our walks during the week so the dogs were in the mood to run.

At one point Sadie wandered off the trail and fell behind. I figured this was the perfect time to get a great shot of her running to catch up. She had a surprise for me, though.

Sadie brings me a present

She brought me a dead bird. Yuck!! (She did drop it as soon as I told her to drop it.)

Luka proved that last week’s behavior was not a fluke. He ran ahead on the trail but always waited for me to catch up.

Luka waits for me

When I stopped walking he came back to get me.

Luka waits for me

This week I noticed that Sadie waited for me whenever there was a trail junction.

Luka just picked a trail and ran ahead (and was often wrong about which way we were going), but Sadie waited for me to lead the way.


Once I showed the way the dogs went ahead of me.

As always, the highlight of the day was the water.

Sadie swims for treats

Despite the wonky weather (fog to sun to clouds back to sun back to clouds) it was another spectacular day (can you spot Luka in this picture?).

Here comes Luka

Finally, I don’t know when the Sleeping Olympics begin but the training around here is intense.

    What a treat! A tale of two tongues. Ontario’s had bizarre weather too – little sun or warmth but still, one can’t complain too loudly after a horrible winter. Love the shots – always so fun to see.

  2. AWWW!!! it’s so wonderful to see the doggies running about on the trail! and that is so adorable how Sadie waits for you but Luka goes ahead and comes back to see which way you choose to go! absolutely adorable…

    whoa. Milo is sleeping HARD!!! and i LOVE that little orange splotch on his back right paw!! 🙂 xoxo.

  3. the images in the post are amazing. It looks like the lack of bright sunshine intensified all the colors. even of the sandy soil trail. Love the second image of the post, best…..
    the dogs are so lovely
    and the cat in repose……purrfect

  4. I’d be so nervous that my doggies would get lost in those situations! Nice going, Luka and Sadie!

  5. Ugh, dogs bring us the most disgusting treats. Yesterday, I almost had a heart attack when Mingus barfed out a whole mouse. Apparently, I screamed incoherent words for a few minutes before the boy came to see what was wrong.

  6. I like it so much that you have nearby trails where your doggies can go off-leash. The few nearby trails that allow dogs around here absolutely request that the dog be on a leash at all times.
