This Week Eros took over carrying the backpack. I'm not positive that Sedna will be able to go on the JMT, so I thought it best to let her enjoy our hike in her usual free goofball way.
He carried it with ease although unlike his sister he did try to shake it off every now and then. At least this way I know that it is well attached and there won't be much chance that he'll drop his food filled pack on the way. But then the bag has yet to have food in it. So far he's only carried a very empty backpack.
We hiked 3 miles in 1 1/2 hours. Not terrible for a first go. I'm sure well get better with time and time we have since we don't hit the JMT until July.
Still I'm very proud of my puppies with or without backpacks. They are always ready to go.
