Decided to take the dogs out for a quick cache, which turned into a briar and ravine filled adventure.
Bender wasn't happy because he didn't have his full range of view, kept tugging and just overall, a grumpy pants.
But this made Pepper grumpy, as she prides herself on being so "independent" ---yet Bender being in the "lead" often left her trapped in the brambles :( .... I lost my brand NEW geocaching pen and my doggie bags because I had to stop, back-track, pick up Pepper and carry her to safer terrain several times.
We finally found the cache, but it was a bit disappointing. I had already lost my pen to sign the log.
Basically, I love my dogs, I love hiking with dogs....but they can be just as aggravating as toddlers sometimes.
At least I now have a full set of really nice "My dog in beautiful locations...with a cone on his head" photos :)
(More on that next post).
