Did Milo hike it or drive it?
Milo doesn't seem to have the legs for 14ers anymore I'm very sad to say, so he panted his way up in the back of my Jeep while his mama had a steady panic attack in the passenger seat from the dropoffs. He did get a nice hike in to Idaho Springs reservoir from Echo Lake on the way out though.

Lucy on Bondcliff Mountain in NH yesterday. Two days earlier in the trip we hiked across the ridge line seen in the background.

Okay how did you get her to stand there?

I went out there and called her over. Then gave her the “stay” command so I could walk away and take her pic.

Some of you who have been on this forum for a while may remember my older dog Joey, my original hiking companion who has since retired.

We brought him to the vet this morning because of a sudden onset of pain and it turns out a tumor ruptured in his spleen and he was bleeding internally. We elected to have his spleen surgically removed and he is now recovering and getting a blood transfusion. The spleen tissue is now being sent for a biopsy to determine if the tumor was benign or malignant. The surgery is considered curative if it was benign, but if malignant, the prognosis is only 2-4 months. Unfortunately statistics skew 75% towards malignant in this situation, but we have our fingers crossed.

This is a pic from about 2 years ago from what was one of Joey’s last real hikes on a trip to Vermont. He should be able to come back home in a few days but the home doesn’t feel right without him.

Little Luna as a pup was quite nervous about wild, new experiences. Still is, but less so, at 77 years old.

Here she is quite delicately and nervously crossing a suspension bridge behind Becky only with great encouragement (and a leash) . This bridge crosses a big Montana river near a full width, chaotic falls. You know the place? It is the Kootenai River falls swinging bridge near Troy, MT.

That's a good picture of those two.
