MY HIKING/WALKING GROUP WENT OUT ON OUR LAST ADVENTURE OF THE SESSION AND I TOOK LITTLE MISTAYA WITH ME. SHE THOUGHT BEING OUT IN THE FOREST WITH ALL OF US WAS PRETTY AWESOME.

I KEPT HER ON THE LEASH FOR AWHILE BUT DECIDED THAT SINCE THERE WAS ONLY ONE OTHER DOG WITH US THAT SHE COULD BE WITHOUT HER LEASH. THE OTHER DOG IS OLD AND VERY KIND SO THIS WAS A GREAT FIRST EXPERIENCE FOR HER.
THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE INCH OF THIS AREA OF THE FOREST THAT SHE DIDN'T COVER...AT TOP SPEED! SHE WOULD RACE ON DOWN THE TRAIL OR HE4AD OUT INTO THE TREES AND THEN SUDDENLY SHE CAME RACING BACK TO MAKE SURE I WAS STILL THERE. SHE DOES LOVE TO PLAY IN THE WATER AND MANAGED TO FIND THE RIVER A FEW TIMES. I MUST SAY I DID WORRY WHEN SHE FOUND HERSELF OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF A LARGE FROZEN POND. I TRIED TO SPEAK CALMLY TO HER AS SHE CAME BACK TO THE SIDE OF THE POND. EVERYTHING WAS OKAY AS WE HEADED ON DOWN THE TRAIL FOR THE REST OF OUR WALK.
AFTER OUR WALK WE COOKED HOT DOGS AND THEN HEATED SMORES JUST LIKE IN THE GIRL SCOUTS!! WHAT A GREAT TIME WE HAD. AND LITTLE MISTAYA CURLED UP AND NAPPED UNDER THE PICNIC TABLE AS WE WERE EATING. WHAT A SMART PUPPY.
LIFE HAS BEEN VERY BUSY AND FUN SINCE LITTLE MISTAYA ENTERED OUT LIVES. YESTERDAY SHE EXPERIENCED HER FIRST SNOW. OF COURSE SHE TRIED TO EAT IT ALL AND DIG IT UP TO CARRY AROUND. SHE IS STILL MYSTIFIED BY THE LARGE TURKEYS THAT COME THROUGH THE YARD AND SHE STOPS WHAT SHE IS DOING AND WATCHES THE EAGLES AND HAWKS FLY OVERHEAD. THIS PUPPY DOESN'T MISS A THING.
