Hiking with Lucy

So, yeah. Lucy's this little puppy thing, and only yesterday she made her first trips around the block...

She actually made the trip 3 times, so today Mom and Dad decided that she was ready for a hike. (The vet said it was okay, although Mom and Dad shouldn't expect her to go very far.)  So, we went hiking.

This is actually at the top of the access trail, but you get the idea!
Lucy has been known to just lay down in the middle of a walk, and it was no great surprise when she decided to "take a break".

Needless to say, I found it all rather amusing!
Mom and Dad were prepared for this, and since Dad didn't want to do this for the whole hike:

He was prepared with his Puppy Sack.  (I think it is actually called a K9 Sport Sack, but it is also a puppy containment device...)

Mom was walking Daisy, as Lucy likes Daisy, and wants to follow her, so before the Puppy Sack was put into action, there was a lot of this:

So, Lucy is now officially a hiker - and we can sort of get back to our regularly scheduled hikes. AND, now Lucy is sacked out (some pun intended!) - and as we all know, a tired puppy is a good puppy!

Stay tuned for more adventures!

Lucy you are above the curve on hiking! It took me months to get walking right on a leash. I cried stopped pulled backwards and protested. But then momma gave me kong stuffing at puppy class and well the rest is history. BOL

You look right at home there in the woods and oh so cute in your pup pack.

Happy Trails!

Dat's why we never miss a walk - we behave a lot better when we're tired!
