I got to go on another hike today! This time Cheeky and I went. She is much quieter in the car than Pippi. Just sayin. Anyway, we went out to Haw Ridge Park Greenway today and met our buddies Ziggy and Clancy. They are both Golden Doodles. We started on leash while on the greenway, but then we tried a new path off in the woods. After we got away from the greenway a little bit we got to go off leash. Love that! Being off leash in the woods is more fun I think than the dog park. So many interesting things to smell ... and roll in. The first part of the hike through the woods was a pretty steep hill in places. Of course that wasn't a problem for me. Mom is sure Pippi and I are part mountain goat. Hehe. Ziggy zoomed off on her own path maybe on the scent of something. She will do that sometimes, but usually comes right back. Well, we made it to the top of the hill and no Ziggy. We had a pretty good view from up there and everyone called and called. We headed on a little bit and were just about to double back when Ziggy's mom got a call. Ziggy had gone back to the parking lot and someone had her. So we headed back that way. Of course we had been hiking for an hour by that time and it took us a bit to get back to the parking lot. Ziggy's mom actually jogged ahead to go meet the person that had Ziggy. Once Ziggy was safely back with us we walked along the greenway a little more. We all stay on leash there on that section.

With the walking on the greenway, the hike through the woods, and more walking on the greenway we went 4.2 miles today. I got in a quick nap on the way home in the car and must admit another good nap this afternoon. And remember that comment about finding things to roll in? Well, I got a bath this evening. Oh well. Maybe we can do another walk tomorrow and I can find something else to roll in. Tee hee hee.
