Hiking, The pups

Washington isn’t all snow…

…we have desert too! JK had another all-weekend class with the Washington Alpine Club this weekend, so I tagged along with Tom, Dani and their morbidly obese (sorry, “stout”) dog Jasper for a hike in the Umtanum Canyon. Eastern Washington really is a different world…I approve of all the sun they get, but not so much of the snakes, spiders and ticks. Bobs ended up getting some sort of weird bite on the inside of his leg, but according to the vet he’s totally fine. Poor little Scabnose, first the broken toe and now a bite dangerously close to his genitals!

A desert kind of green

Wellington is doing great by the way. I’m still amazed by how dog-like he is for an Italian Greyhound. Here he’s chewing on a stick (Bobby would never even think of acting so…canine) he found on the hike:

I am Wellie, hear me rooaaar!

…and here he’s nursing Bobby back to good health after the vet appointment:

Alrightyroo, short post (I have to run) but at least it’s a post. Ok, so it was just an excuse to post the cute photo of Wellie with the stick.

    What cute pictures! I love seeing your two little ones all curled up together. I hope Bobby starts feeling better. I live in the desert and Sedona is constantly getting bit by ants and other things. I always have medicine on hand for her :)
