Hike with Dooley

I used to take our dog Dooley on walks/hikes everyday, but unfortunately his health hasn't been great the last few months. After taking him to the vet every other week for a few months (luckily we are friends with our vet) we finally figured out what was causing him all his problems (terrible sores on his feet, rashes on his belly) - he is allergic to poultry. 

Wouldn't be such a big deal except we fed him ground turkey for dinner every night. Now that we have taken him off that (and put him on the world's most expensive dog food) he's doing much better. 

To celebrate I thought I would take him out for a hike. We hadn't been out in forever and the weather was perfect! We went out to Lynx Lake which isn't too far from where we live. Dooley made it halfway around the lake before showing signs of giving up (it had been a while), but he was a trooper and kept up with me the whole time. He even ignored most of the dogs we met along the way! 

Although he did make frequent pit stops along the way! 

He doesn't love his picture being taken...but he grumbled and let me do my thing! 

It was such a beautiful day! Somehow we managed to stay in the shade the majority of the time, so luckily we didn't get too hot.
