Spike's Hike

Remember this?  Miracles DO happen!

Well, he's back and as strong as he ever was.  I still can't believe he's alive. 

Jana is living in the area for a few months which means I get to see her and the big black dogs again.

Here's a quick recap of our hike a few days ago.

Oh yay, a stick

Get it good and balanced

Oh no, I can't make it over this tiny bridge

Phew, went under it!

C'mon, there's another obstacle up there

Open, please

Up the hill we go

Still got it!

He continued to carry that darn branch until we got to the final gate.

I laughed and laughed so hard during our hike.  It was awesome.

Welcome back, SPIKE!!!
