We just got back from a week in Colorado for vacation. Brody is the BEST traveler! He just sleeps in the car. When we get to a hotel, we bring in his bag and he digs through it and gets out a ball and then he's happy as a clam. :) Once we got to the vacation house, he settled right in. He is a joy to travel with.

Here's a few pics....

The vacation rental house we stayed in. North of Durango, CO. Lots of room to spread out, a hot tub on the deck, lots of woods and trails. And lots of squirrels to chase!



We saw deer every day from the deck walking through this grassy area in the back of the house.



Brody ready for another walk!



We went sight seeing every day, Colorado is so beautiful!





Such a good boy!



It's a big big world out there! Let's go explore it! :)

Brody, what an adventurer you are!

I really want to live in Colorado one day. I want to live everywhere, lol, but that's on the list too! It does look beautiful.

I'm glad you enjoyed Colorado. Brody looks at home. No problems with hawks swirling overhead? I'm a nervous CO Chi Mom.

That looks absolutely beautiful,lucky little Brody
Thanks Michele! It was really good to get away.

Wow!! Just beautiful & looks so peaceful. Lucky pup looks like he had a wonderful vaca too!! Lol
It just wouldn't be the same to go on vacation if we couldn't bring Brody! :D

Colorado is definitely one of our favorite places.

He wasn't off leash. That last pic of him in the yard was snapped right before we got in the car. The rest of the time he was on his harness/leash and we were right there. One evening we went out in the back yard for a potty break and there were several deer out there. They can be aggressive! Luckily they just walked away. Definitely have to be aware of wildlife danger out there! You are a SMART mom to be aware of all the things that could go wrong out there in the wilderness. It's not a safe place for the little guys.

I'm glad Brody was well guarded! A couple weeks ago I saw two hikers hiking their pack of dogs in the Mount Evans wilderness area--about 9,000 feet elevation. Would you believe in the middle of this pack was a very small Chi hiking at a very fast pace! I couldn't believe it. They had taught the Chi to hike between the big dogs, one on either side, one in front, one behind. I started screeching like a fool, "LOOK AT THE CHI!" The woman told me he is an exceptional hiker. I would not hike my Chis off leash, but it was quite the sight.

Wow, they are great photos and Brody looks gorgeous amidst all the beautiful scenery.

Is Colarado where you took that amazing photo of Brody with the mountains in the background for your siggy? - that is one of my all time favourite photos and really makes me want to visit there someday :)

I knew I would be jealous when I saw the title of this thread. We LOVE Colorado. It is our favorite place to go on vacation. Brody looks like he had a really good time! Kerri loves hiking on the woods- I think the desert down here gets a little boring for her. I can't wait till we can get back up to Colorado!
I am curious though- is that lost lake?

If it is then you were on my favorite place on the planet.

OMG I would have loved to have seen that!!! Brody can go long distances as well. He never seems to tire out like we do. ha.

Oh Tracy, always love your vacation pics with Mr. Brody!:p
Thanks Pam! This was part vacation and part job hunting trip. We may end up moving to Utah.

Beautiful pictures. Love the scenery. Looks like Brody enjoyed his vacation :).
Thanks! Yes, he loves to go. He loves rest stops too. So much to sniff. ;)

Beautiful pictures! Brody seems to photograph very well!
Thank you! I think its hard to photograph black dogs but we try. :)

Love love love these!! I feel like I went to Colorado with you guys haha!
Thanks Kat! It was really relaxing. Good to get away for awhile.

Awesome photos! He looks great!
Thanks Christie! It was fun.

Hi Jane - yes, that pic of him on the rock ledge was also in Colorado! Oh you would love it. It is spectacular.

No, it wasn't lost lake. It was Stevens lake I believe? It was between Durango and Silverton. Beautiful place and walking trails all around. You would love it. Do you ever worry about scorpions or spiders or snakes when you are out and about?

Love the view, the pictures and that boy is DARLING!

Oh! I also love his red, plaid vest. A VERY lumberjack look for him!
Thank you Karen! It's an ipuppyone harness I got on clearance awhile back. The vest style works better for him than the over the head kind. It also sort of acts as a coat since it's a heavier harness than usual. Perfect for Colorado!

We need some new pics of your 3 cuties!!! :D

No but I worry about them in our backyard! I never worry about spiders and scorpions on hikes because they are usually in brush and the brush around here is really spikey. Kerri is always on leash and I train both dogs to stay away from plants so I am not pulling cactus spines out of their faces. Scorpions come out at night- so they are not a problem. Also scorpions are not deadly, but I do take benadryl with us hiking. The backyard is a bit if a different story- being landscaped and watered it does attract a lot of black widows. I am always on the look out and can spot the webs and kill them before they get big.

We have only seen 1 rattle snake since moving here. They have a season and are generally trying to avoid people. I always look ahead on the trail and we avoid hiking on washes in the seasons where they would be around a lot. I am from Miami so the reptile situation out here actually seems safe and easy to get a handle on compared to there.

Brody is the MAN! Looks like you all had a great time. Just wondering what did you feed Brody while away from home?
