In which we go on the hiking...

This is my "Would you PLEASE hurry up?" look.

We went on the hiking again down in the mountains, which is not to be confused with up in the mountains, as they are two different sets of mountains.  Unfortunately, someone whose name shall remain TG, decided that we were on the wrong trail, so by the time he realized we weren't going on the trail he wanted to be on, we had almost worn out our hiking muscles.  So, we turned around and went up the right trail, but we didn't go as far as I would have liked.  But we did hike about 920 miles, according to the same guy who shall remain named TG.   Actually, I measured it and it was only about 2.5 miles, but since his legs are longer than mine, maybe it just seemed like 920 miles to him.

so if you would like to go with us some time, let us know!  Don't worry, we probably won't make it all the way to the top next time either!! 

PS.  I just noticed that we were almost on Jack Mountain!  Isn't that cool?  We'll have to go there so I can get a picture.  
I feel like the Waltons! :)

  6. Why you on string Jack ? Come over the England - no doggies on strings where I live ! And my name is Skye - I have a whole island of my own !!

  7. Aw, a long hike, but you look great!

  8. HAHA, poor TG! Guess you gotta get him out more Jack!

  9. Jack,

    TG's sense of direction reminds me of my mom's, can him get lost in a closet like her can? ;)

  10. Great hike Jack...and lovely link. Mom would love to go for thanks I expect I'd get hot and glowy (you know Southern gals glow not sweat) and well Divas don't like to get glowy.

  11. a mountain all your own! and named after you!
    i'm impressed.
    go easy on tg jack. he could be propped up before the weird talking box watching cars blow up or guys in helmets chasing a weird shaped ball and running into each other...
    hiking with you is much better! believe me!
    love to both my guys,
    tammy j

  12. Wow 920 miles!!! Next hike will be Jack Mountain??? Sounds like you need to go see your namesake Jack.

  13. That's a lot of miles, Jack! LOVE the "look"! BOL!

  14. Wow you must be tired

    Stop on by for a visit

  15. We love to go hiking and watch The Waltons!!!
    Having 4 legs does give us an advantage! :)
    Hike On!

  16. What a cool idea: Jack Mountain!
    TG will HAVE to get a pic of you on top of it!
    Must be a pretty time of the year for hiking in AZ!
    I hope you guys didn't get blown off the map!

  17. Perhaps TG could ask Santa for a GPS this Christmas?
    Just a suggestion...
    Toodle pip!

  18. We will have to get together and all go hiking! That would be fun - thanks for the link!


  19. After taking a blogging break, it is nice to come back to read all about my favorite friends. Glad to see that you still have your sense of humor, because I really need it sometimes!

  20. Maybe you'd better pack extra water, Jack, if the TG is going to get you lost in the mountains. Bertie's idea of a GPS is pretty good. Get a flare gun, too, while you're at it. And always carry a mirror on your collar, so you can signal the searching aircraft during the daylight hours. Fortunately, you always carry your teeth so you can gnaw off the TG's arm if it gets stuck under a rock or something and your leash is trapped with it so you can't run off to bring help. Hey, there's a major motion picture idea right there - dangerous adventures and cute dogs to the rescue.

  21. That is one long hike. Your labralegs must be all a quiver.


    P.S. Always makes momma happy to note that idiot PeeWee isn't the only labradoink requiring a string.

  22. it doesn't matter how fast we go, the dogs always move faster! i know that look all too well!
