    Three herders, a lab, and a weiner go adventuring.

    Miss us??

    Things have been insane busy around here, but I've been spending a ton of time working with Finn, and I'm proud to say he's graduated back to offleash hiking! Finn and I headed out to the Greenbelt early this morning after a rescue transport with two of my co-workers and their dogs: Bentley (ACD x), Ozzy (merle Aussie), Zephyr (chocolate lab) and Cricket (dachshund with a quarter Alaskan Husky. Yep.)

    Great trails! Some swamp, some woods and some sun, with a little beach in the middle. Finn SWAM for the first time today, but only briefly. He mostly stuck to submerging himself up to his belly, but that's WAY better progress than ever before!

    Lots of photos, only a few captions. Enjoy!

    He seriously loved the water. Seriously. I'm in shock.

    Zephyr and Finn were Team Nosework. They kept stopping to investigate strange pees.

    Cricket used to hate Finn. Then he found out Finn will play chase endlessly. Now he doesn't hate Finn. The end!

    There are a lot of doggy butts in these photos, I am aware. But they're cute butts, at least.

    Have some human butts to shake it up.

    Looks like you all had quite the adventure!

    I have to admit, the weinerhusky made me go: o_O
    Don't get me wrong, CUTE, but... what an odd mix. :p

    Of course, always happy to see Finn!

    I wouldn't believe it if Nat hadn't seen it with her own eyes! She used to work on a slad dog farm. The farm pet dogs were dachshunds. Grandpa doxie got a hold of an Alaskan female, and the resulting offspring bred once with another farm doxie. Thus, Cricket. :p

    Beautiful dogs and beautiful scenery!

    Do you mind PM-ing me where this place is? I'm in your area and would love to pay it a visit if it's public!
