      Yes, I’m in the same boat here. I have a soon to be six month old puppy…smaller trails for now. Congrats on your beautiful pup~

    The June theme is hiking with your pet.

    Here is a picture of my adventure buddy, Pepper! She is a two year old black lab mix and has never found a hike long enough to tire her out.

      I look forward to getting my high energy puppy out there when he is full grown. Fun to see yours enjoying so much trail time~

    We mostly walk or run in our neighborhood, but my Husky does enjoy some of the shorter trails when it isn't so hot.

      What a beautiful dog!

      My two labradoodles are powder-puffs. They melt when the temperature gets above 80f. They do much better in cool or even cold, snowy weather.

      They have done a number of peaks in the Six-Pack of Peaks Series, including Volcan Mountain (San Diego), Sutton Mountain and Black Butte (Oregon), and Mission Peak (used to be in the NorCal challenge).

    Has anyone ever come across a snake, cougar, or bear while out with your dog? If so, how did your dog react?

      Fortunately I have not had an encounter with my dog but on my own, yes.

      I have encountered many snakes 🐍 including rattle snakes. I’ve encountered a few bears 🐻 and once a mountain lion 🦁 on my hikes. Unfortunately or fortunately, I did not get a chance to take picture of the mountain lion.

      Wow, those are great pictures! Do you carry anything with you for protection? I don't, but I wonder if I should. This is a new area for me and they are new things to beware of (snakes).

    Maggie May, our 10-year-old black lab / Australian cattle dog mix. We moved to L.A. five years ago, and Maggie has covered many miles, including during last year's Six-Pack SoCal challenge when she hiked Mt. Baden Powell, Cucamonga, Ontario and Baldy! She is truly my favorite hiking partner.
