Dogs up the mountain
My sister and I took our four dogs up the west side of Mount Doug this afternoon. It was such a pretty time to be there in the slanting golden sunlight.
It's a lovely spot with arbutus trees and oaks and rocky outcroppings and the views from the top are gorgeous. The dogs love it too, although they don't like having to sit still at the top to have their photo taken. This photo shows four stressed dogs. You can tell they're stressed by the sideways looks, the yawning, and the looking away or down. I've studied about dog body language and it's quite revealing!
Jan's shelties are just beautiful dogs. That's Charlotte in front and Zoe behind, looking happy and windblown.
