This week was a strange one weather wise. Lots of rain and cold but thankfully the sun came out when came time for my puppies and me to go out and continue our hiking endeavors. Though it was cold enough that I regretted not having thought to wear something to keep my ears from going numb. Lesson learned.
I decided it was time for Eros and me to start having some weight in our packs. I filled these cool water bottles that came with Eros' awesome backpack. Figured it would test how watertight they are and if I needed to find another solution for his walking water. They are a liter each, so Eros had 2 kg on him. My daypack was more eclectically filled with my camera, a baking encyclopedia and two water bottles.
My sweet boy did beautifully. Once he got passed the initial surprise of having weight on his back he trotted along in his usual manner.
With his sister following along in her usual understated way.
We did seven miles in 3 1/2 hours. Pretty good place to start I think.
