Dog’s Day Trip

November 28, 2009

Tom and I decided a doggie day trip in a westerly direction was the best way to spend our after-Thanksgiving Friday off. We ended up in the South Park area just outside of Buena Vista, CO (about 2.5 hours) where we found a quiet mountain back road, played with the dogs and enjoyed a lunch on the tailgate of the Jeep. It was sunny and about 48 degrees – an absolutely perfect day! (I’m as much a dog person as I am a horse person – it’s so satisfying to come home with happy, tuckered out “puppies”).

Tom with the dogs - Kaylen, Sage and Brihten

Super Sage flying through the air!

Sage decides to defer to Brihten who is going for the same ball.

Doing his best to get out of Brihten's way.

Sagey is so athletic

But 8 year-old Brihten is no slouch!

In synch

These two are best buddies - Sage and Kaylen

Handsome boy Brihten

Our pretty girl Kaylen (11 years old)

And our energetic little guy Sagey (6 years old)

I can’t imagine my life without critters. Animals are such a gift.

We lost our sweet Kaylen not long after this happy day trip…

    Great photos Pam! What would we all do without a “chuck it” 🙂

    Oh our “chuck it” is a lifesaver when tossing balls for 3 dogs! No more throwing your arm out! Best invention ever. 🙂
