Thought I’d share some pics of the furkids from our recent vacation in western NC plus a few extra. We had a lot of fun and the dogs did too.

Before hiking we took the dogs a nearby field to run Dakota to tire him out before hitting the trails. Anyone familiar with huskies I’m sure will understand the need to tire him out BEFORE hiking. LOL


Faith can’t figure out how this thing fits in Dakota’s mouth.

Time to hit the trails in the Blue Ridge!




It was gorgeous out there and mom didn’t feel like waiting around for dad to take pictures!


What’s that I see? Blueberries?!


Who wants blueberries? Forget feeding the guinea pigs, let’s get back on the trail!


I like smelling the blueberries, mommy.


They really make my color stand out. Ain’t I pretty mom?


…to be continued…

Time for a water break!




I think I’ll just relax here in the shade for a bit.


Back at the car after several hours…a tired Faith passed out on the pillow.


Dakota on the other hand…”What? That’s all?! Where’s the next trail? Home? Who’s ready to go home?!”


After all that hiking, Dakota was very hungry!

(Please note, despite how the picture looks Dakota was extremely gentle and Faith was not harmed in any way!)

…a few more to follow…

Another day, another walk! This one was a little less strenuous and had more flowers to stop and smell. :)








DUCK!!!!!


Just come a little closer…wait until the right moment…


Again, at the end of the day Faith could hardly keep her eyes open.


…one last set…

Our last day there we took the dogs to the field for a run one last time.




A pic of Faith taken with my cell phone while she slept in my lap on the way home…she looked so sweet.


Back at home, Dakota’s chillin’ in his bed…bored. (excuse the quality, it’s another cell phone pic)


And (yes, another cell phone pic! Sorry) Faith supervising the picture posting process and checking out chi people with mommy. :)


That’s all folks! Hope you enjoy!

Wow great pics! Gorgeous place too.
How cute are they together!
Looks like they had loads of fun.

I understand about the need to tire Dakota, otherwise woulda been run off your feet!
They cant wait to get places.
That's my experience anyway, but once they have that energy used up a bit they trot along fine, LOL

LOL Thank you! I thought it was so cute when he put his mouth so gently around her head! lol Hubby thought I was going to get flamed if I posted that pic so I thought it wise to put a 'no harm was done' disclaimer just in case! ;)

Thanks Terri! I bet you are used to hiking with the bf's sibes! Even with running him he still pulled like their was no tomorrow the first half of the trail. Wasn't until the second half of the trail that he walked along at a nice pace. The day we came across the ducks I didn't run him prior and I had blisters on my hands from his lead halfway through our walk!!! Ouch!

Aww you're so sweet. But I have to say, my neighbor down the street has claimed he has first dibs if I ever want to rehome Dakota! lol Fat chance though. ;)

WOW! I can't believe Biggles can fit Bruno's head in his mouth! Do you have a picture?! lol

Well Biggles is over 10lbs - we call him our designer fake - sold to us as a chi - but verrrry suspect - think he has a lot of Papillon and heaven knows what else! so he's a lot bigger than Bruno - who is quite tiny!! Biggles is now referred to as a "Biggles dog" breed all of his own!!

Oh i feel your pain!
Whenever Storm, Misty and River spot something they pull like crazy!
We use those bungy leads, they help a bit. :)
I will need to show my man the pics of Dakota here, he will want him too. HAHA!!
