Long Day of Hiking

After a long day of hiking, our tongues are hanging.

And that results in serious napping time on the drive home.

And Kodiak's pillow does not seem to be moving on him.

As we were approaching the house, the humans looked out and saw this sunset. What a great ending to a perfect day.

    I love hiking but the Missus does not have that kind of stamina to keep up with us.

    Nice comfy pillows!

    Love,

    I suspect that your tiredness did not last as long as the Hu-Dad would have liked! I’ll bet you rested on the way home and then were all ready for pizza bones!

    Great pictures. We love to hike, too! Well, I do, Mack doesn’t…..
    You all must have hiked far for the tongues to be that long.

    Drools and licks,

    Looks like it was a wonderful day – love that pillow shot. Ciara says she took good notes on that one.

    That is a wonderful day if you ask me! Such contentment on those sleeping faces 🙂

  22. Sage on September 20, 2010 at 10:24 am

    When my tongue is hanging out that far, I’m looking for a river to jump in. Did you find one?

    I bet after that long nap you were all ready to go, go, go when you got home! At least I would have been……..

    Wonderful – there’s nothing like the contented snoozing of a dog (or six) after a long and fun day of hiking! Love the “pillow” photo.

  25. Zoe on September 20, 2010 at 9:17 am

    Great formation! You’re all on the same foot!

  26. Pamela on September 20, 2010 at 7:50 am

    Just how many miles does it take to get those tongues hanging out? And can you measure how far you’ve gone by how far the tongues hang down?
