Morning Hikes


Nothing quite like getting up at sunrise for an early hike


Mist burning off of the lake


Wildlife stirring


Except for that getting up early part, of course.

    Mom gets me up early in the morning to take me out and feed me. Then when she leaves for work I get to sleep in a while longer till dad gets up. 🙂 Weekends we all sleep in!

    With the weather we’ve been having lately, getting up early is the only option.

    Ha roo roo roo! Way to go! Is that Kodiak?
    I’m all for getting up early – going potty, having breakfast, getting some exercise in before it gets stinkin’ hot …. but hey, when a pup’s gonna crash, a pup’s gonna crash!

    we love mornings – mommy tries really hard to explain something called weekends to us – but we are still up at 5 to go running – then we let mommy come home feed us and then we allow her to take a nap.

    We get up the first time in the morning at 4am with Dad for bunny patrol and kibble and cheese. But he doesn’t have time for a walk before he leaves for work. Then we go back to bed with Momma until much later.

    Exactly! Early is not in my vocabulary!

    I love the early mornings on the trails too! But, I agree about the getting up early part… The wildlife is (usually) one of the best parts.
