Ever since my blogging friend Bassa climbed up a mountain awhile back I’ve been wanting to climb a mountain. My person finally said it had gotten cool enough today so we could go. The mountain we climbed isn’t really a mountain – it’s a big rock called Sugarloaf.
My person got a little upset with me when she had to drag me away from the stuff I was sniffing. She said she was hoping I would pull her up the mountain. When we went back down I did try to pull her, but she wouldn’t go for it and kept walking at the same pace. A dog just can’t win.
At first I had fun sniffing all the new dog smells and didn’t care much about the scenery.
But I finally started looking around.
On the way back I had to cross a slippery slope.
Here are some pictures of Sugarloaf – the big rock we climbed.
When we got back home I was concerned for a bit. Scratchy didn’t want to climb the rock with us and he was hanging out at home. I was thirsty. What if he drank all the water in my water dish?

It was fun climbing it Jimmie Chew. It’s right near my house.

Wow, Bongo! Love seeing the pictures from your walk. I can’t wait to get back to your neighborhood. Hiking is the best!

Lola, when you come back we’ve got to go walking together.

Those pictures are gorgeous!!!! I’d like to see Wonderbutt make it up there, but I think I’d end up carrying him!

Thanks. Wonderbutt could make it. All you do is follow the smells.

I have not figured out if he can smell or not. He can definitely create smells, though.

Wonderbutt, you’re my kind of dog.

Congratulations Bongo! Your mountain is awesome – pictures are beautiful. I wish I had gone with you!

Bassa, thanks. It would have been fun to have you go with me.

Bongo, you are soooo cute. I think you must smile in every picture! Sugarloaf is very pretty and it looks like you had a pretty good time, I think so anyway. Hopefully you were able to sniff out some good smells like you wanted too…. :o)

Hi Janie – Thanks for visiting my site. And thanks for the compliments. I smile a lot when I’m doing things I like – like going for walks and finding new smells. My person stopped by your site. She likes you site because she says I’m almost an older dog – but I don’t believe her.
