I don’t know how it is where you live, but where I live, dogs have to always be attached to their humans if they aren’t in their own house or yard.

It’s not that I don’t like being close to them, but sometimes I really just want to kick into high gear and run like the wind, you know?

I never get to do that unless we are way, way out in the forest, and even some forests don’t allow dogs to run without dragging their owners along. Seriously, what a drag.Β 

I was SO happy when I found out we were going hiking! Yes!!!! The song, “Happy Trails” was dancing through my head as we got ready to go.

At one point Mom stopped and took everything off of me, setting me free.

You can’t imagine how good it felt when they let me walk by myself!Β 

I stood there for a minute in disbelief…..

There’s nothing like trail zoomies!!

I’m running so fast that I’m lifting off into “hover dog” mode!

Every once in a while, I stopped to admire my totally pawsome

paw prints in the trail πŸ™‚Β

Eventually, I got tired and slowed down to a normal trot.Β

I was one happy trail dog.

*Sorry, Mom found out after we got back that the new camera she and Dad bought took lousy photos of anything moving.  VERY disappointing!! They looked good on the camera, but not on the computer when we got home 😦
